Book: Is It Just Me?

by Whoopi Goldberg. 

This is a new book on things that are bugging Whoopie … her pet peeves. 

I got it from the library and it took me 2 hours to read.  What a letdown.  I was bored.  Her first rant was about people who drink and drive.  Is there anyone who LIKES drunk drivers?  Next was how nasty politics has [have?] gotten. Really?  That’s it?

I was hoping it would have been wayyy more witty with unique rants.

The only bit I thought was helpful was suggestions for when you are in an “awkward place where you’re sitting thru a friend’s recital, or their improv showcase, or after dinner they drag you into the basement to look at their artwork. Well? What do you think? Be honest.”

The below are handy neutral answers to memorize:



You did it again!

It’s all you.

It’s got you all over it.

How do you do it?

You must be so proud of yourself.

I couldn’t do that.

Nobody but you, nobody but you.

I think you found yourself.

Somebody’s been working.

I’ve never seen/heard anything like this.

I am speechless.

Know what?  I am going to be remembering this moment for a long time.

NOTE: A much better book on rants is Adam Carolla’s In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks.

Winter Must Have Buy: Heated Mattress Pad

We bought a heated mattress pad at Costco for about $75.  I think that’s expensive, but I am always cold and Bend has a long cold season. 

I love it!  It is well worth the 75 bucks.

So, if you get cold easily, you need to get this item!  There is also dual control settings, so you can crank your side up all you want without bothering your sleep mate [too much].
