Visit with the Funny Lady

Last night, I drove the tragically deteriorating Volvo up to Seattle to see Laurie Notaro, author of such pee-your-pants funny memoirs as The Idiot Girl's Adventure Guide and We Thought You Would Be Prettier. She was doing her first reading/signing as a novelist.

Her new book is called (in lowercase, as it is on the cover): there's a (slight) chance i might be going to hell: a novel of sewer pipes, pageant queens, and big trouble. Great, right? So was Laurie, she's a natural for public appearances, funny as hell.

Weird thing, I'd never seen a picture of her before and she looked SO FREAKIN' FAMILIAR! When I met her for the signing part, the first thing out of her mouth was "have we met?" Of course, being old farts, neither of us could figure it out. Anyway, she's great. Totally personable and outgoing.

Check her out.

You probably grew up on the same street or made out at a party when drunk or something like that. Something that should be totally obvious.

At least, that's what it's always like for me when that happens.
