Life As I Blow It

Tales of Love, Life & Sex . . . Not Necessarily in That Order

Description

In this wickedly funny and irreverent memoir, Chelsea Lately writer and comedian Sarah Colonna opens up about love, life, and pursuing her dreams . . . and then screwing it all up.
 
Sarah believes we all struggle to grow up. Sometimes we want to have fun, not take things too seriously, and have that fourth margarita. Other times we would like to get married, stay in, order Chinese food, and have a responsible, secure life.
 
From her formative years in small-town Arkansas to a later career of dates, drinks, and questionable day jobs, Colonna attempts to reconcile her responsible side with her fun-loving side. Sometimes this pans out, and sometimes she finds herself in Mexico handing out her phone number to anyone who calls her pretty. She moves to Los Angeles to pursue acting, but for years is forced to hone her bartending skills; she wants a serious boyfriend, but won’t give up nights at the bar with her friends. She tries to behave like an adult, but can’t seem to stop acting like a frat boy. In the end, she discovers that there doesn’t have to be just one or the other. And if there’s one thing Colonna has learned from her many missteps, it’s that hindsight is always 100 proof.

Includes a Foreword by Chelsea Handler

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 23, 2012 – In this rapid-fire tell-all memoir, Colonna spins personal misfortune into comedic gold. Recalling a bad trip on mushrooms at Burning Man, the author reminisces about camping trips with her family in Arkansas (where she grew up), noting quaintly that her mother "fed biscuits and gravy rather than hallucinogens." While some readers may tire of the drinking, drugs, and myriad men, Colonna's fans will appreciate her endearing self-deprecation and sarcastic humor. Between the one night stands, politically incorrect humor, and countless episodes of heartbreak, Colonna finds time to reflect on more serious concerns, like aging, blazing a career path, overcoming nerves (Colonna is a stand-up comic), and pushing the boundaries of one's comfort zone. The eye-opening narrative relates candid details of the author's life in mature language, but the conversational style and humorous slant will keep readers laughing from start to finish.

Great book!

Hilarious, my kind of read :-)

More please!

I'm up at 4:04 am reading so that should tell you something. I mean I could have chosen to play family feud but who needs the feud when you have this little gem. Well played.
