I know, doesn't seem Like my stereotypical book right? But really when am I ever stereotypical? Other than my collection of cats and Ani DiFranco albums. Then again my mind needs a nice easy read now and then. I have to admit most female humor writers drive me insane. Too whiny & annoying about all the problems that beget us women. (I have no idea why so many hoo-has are crying these days but maybe a case study should be done).

Notaro, however is like the domesticated Chelsea Handler. Which I will say I am a bit jealous that Chelsea and Co. get to say all the crude inappropriate things that I do but get paid millions to do so. Shite. There goes MY crying hoo-ha....

Digressing, Notaro has a natural flair for telling stories that I love. Bc comedy is everywhere in everyday life but only so many people can see that with the ability to point it out for the everyman. That being said sometimes we say such things in offensive ways... fine, fine, fine... I ALWAYS say things in an offensive manner.

Regardless, I love how she writes and how quickly you breeze through her books. And the fact that she writes about my old Tempe/Phoenix stomping grounds doesn't hurt either. Play on Notaro, play on... though now that she's moved to Portland I expect some epic tales of ass expansion from 3 a.m. trips to Voodoo Donuts and singing karaoke with trannies at Suki's... Or maybe those are my tales to tell...
