This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

#121 It looked Different on the Model - Laurie Notaro

This book was a crack up from start to finish. This is pretty much a book about the crazy life this lady leads. She moved to Eugene, Oregon from Phoenix, Arizona. I can tell you that Oregon peeps are just not your regular kind of peeps. I adore them and their weirdness but it is definitely an adjustment! 

This book reads a lot like a blog and reminds me a bit of The Bloggess. She shares crazy stories that as they go you are thinking NO don't do it and then laughing out loud at the silliness of it all. I just know Karen would have loved this book. She would have called me up and said girl this book is up your alley. You know what sealed the deal for me? The story about how the lady in the book woke up one morning to see a fart chart next to her she had made one night in an Ambien state of weirdness before she fell asleep. And the chart is in the book! 

If you are looking for a book that is really just a fluff book that will have you cracking up this is the one for you. You may not get some of the references to Oregon peeps unless you are familiar but let me tell you my experience is she is pretty dead on with her description - in the most hilarious way.
