She thought she'd have more time. Laurie Notaro figured she had at least a few good years yet. But no-it's happened. She has officially lost her marbles. From the kid at the pet-food store checkout line whose coif is so bizarre it makes her seethe "I'm going to kick his hair's ass" to the hapless Sears customer service rep on the receiving end of her Campaign of Terror, no one is safe from Laurie's wrath. Her cranky side seems to have eaten the rest of her-inner-thigh Chub Rub and all. And the results are breathtaking. Her riffs on e-mail spam, eBay ("There should be an eBay wading pool, where you only get to bid on Precious Moments figurines and Avon products, and you have to make it through that first before jumping into the deep end"), and the perils of St. Patrick's Day ("When I'm driving, the last think I need is a herd of inebriates darting in and out of traffic like loaded chickens") are the stuff of legend. And for Laurie, it's all 100 percent true.… (més)

I found this mean spirited rather than funny. ( )

Another fun book by Laurie Notrao. In this one she talks about going off on the customer service guy at the cable company. Looking for fabulous boots with one of her girlfriends in San Francisco even though she has "athletic" calves. Her hypochondriac tendencies after looking at WebMD. Going to a discount store that sells seconds and other not for regular retail. Teaching her sister the ins and outs of E-Bay. Her crazy cat lady neighbor. Finally ending with her painting class which after painting seed pods, antlers and the parking lot they graduate to a live model, a past her prime nude female. ( )

This is a book of "essays" where there author is recounting some of the humourous moments in her life, starting with her panic when she lost her passport/money/id/everything in New York City on the first stop of her book tour to the painting class where she had to paint someone in the nude. And all kinds of stuff in between - shopping with her best friend, all kinds of family stuff, and more.

This is the first book I've read by Notaro and I will be reading more! She is funny! I was often laughing out loud, luckily mostly at home, rather than on public transit. It was a fast, fun read. ( )

Laurie Notaro is incredibly funny. Her book We Thought You Would Be Prettier was such fun to read. It was like a breath of fresh air after some of the longer and more serious titles that I've read. It is set up as short essays on topics and as such I could read a couple when I felt like a chuckle or two. Definitely a book that most women will enjoy and relate to. My favorite was her tale about shopping in a bargain/closeout store. The title of that story was That's Not Pudding, and it was a description of a stain seen on a discounted comforter when the clerk removed it from the package to try to find the price. I laughed so hard that I had tears running down my face. ( )

I love Laurie Notaro and all her imperfections. She makes me feel that girls like us (chubby, smartmouth, sassy, no filter) are the norm. She is offensive (often unintentionally), untidy, and hilarious. ( )
