Yay! It's book review time because I have a few books I've finished reading and I'm going to share them now so I don't forget. And we'll see if any of this makes sense because hey- I have a migraine and am currently under the influence of my migraine medication which makes me zonk out. Fun times.
Pretty In Plaid- Jen Lancaster
OOH..I love me some Chelsea. It is very rare that I get to watch her show and now that I have DVR I just have to learn how to use it and then I will be a complete Chelsea slut. Total. I also need to say I'm sad this is her last book. Super sad.
I identify with Chelsea in lots of ways. Most of which I won't share because hi-- I need to write my own book. But I'm snarky, I play mean tricks and tease mercilessly. Matt, unfortunately for him, takes the brunt of my cruel humor. Thankfully he takes it in stride, but I did take time to read excerpts from this to him so he can understand how much worse I could actually be.
The book is full of essays that highlight the pranks she pulls, how she can convince people who are eternally stupid to believe things that nobody who is on the outside of a mental institution would believe, and how nuts her family is. The emails between her siblings are hilarious and it makes me wish I had more than one sibling.
This book also, again, makes me wish I had gotten completely shitfaced every day of college instead of doing my school work. Even though my loans won't be paid off until 2013 (which would make you think I learned a LOT), I feel like by not letting loose I'm paying my whole life. Honestly? I feel like I could have been doing what Chelsea is doing. The fact she's not in her 20's anymore gives me hope that I still have a chance. I'm not completely against sleeping with someone to get a job, and I think Matt would support that, but I don't know if I could do Ted. I don't know. I just don't feel attracted to him at all and honestly? I am not a good actress.
Highly recommend this book and anything else by Chelsea.
OK- so that's what has been sitting on my bed table the last two weeks. I have a few more books lined up so we'll see what I can get done for next week. But for now bitches, my migraine meds are in full effect. Too-da-loo.
