it was ok

+1 Star: I appreciate these stories actually happened to Notaro, and she's willing to share them with us, shame free.

+1 Star: Yes, Notaro is funny.

-1 Star: While sentences like "This is your one chance to encounter a fireman and here you are, just a hag with a hose" (p.104) are great, stringing one million of them together gets exhausting and ends up leaving you wondering what you just read and if you even cared.

-1/2 Star: When I finished this book, I was smiling because of the one liners, but ultimately felt like I maybe wasted my time.

+1/2 Star: I love topics like QVC watching family members, doing knee bends to make pants fit, playing Sims until you're pissed, and Notaro's extremely lovable husband.

+1 Star: Although I'm chalking this round up to fluffy icing, I'm interested enough to read the cake that gave her fame: The Idiot Girl's Action Adventure Club. Which makes this 2 Star review a giant win for Notaro.

Total: 2 Stars of easy nonsense reading.
