Book Review: The Hump Day Diaries
Quite a while back I posted this.
I will now reveal that mystery blogger as……none other than…..MaryMac over at Pajamas and Coffee. Apparently that post of hers caught the eye of a lot of people at “The Gal Sprouts” and caused some significant uproar in her life. You can read about that here.
So why am I revealing the inspiration for my blog post? Because Marymac has made lemons into lemonade! She used it to her advantage and it is abso-fucking-lutely hilarious.
The “Rubber Duckie” was the first in a series of weekly sex toy reviews known as The Hump Day Diaries. Then she morphed those blog posts into an e-book.
When I first saw her offer to send a free copy of the book to fellow bloggers if they would review it on their own blogs I thought…….eeeewwwwww…….seriously? really? That’s gross. I’d feel like a peeping tom! I don’t even like porn so how could I possibly review this book?
Ok so here’s where I admit that I LOVE FREE STUFF! Combine that with the fact that I no longer work for The Gal Sprouts and you’ve piqued my curiosity. (Good thing I’m not a cat! HA! Curiosity…..get it?) So read it I did.
First let’s watch the commercial for Poise. (After four kids and four vaginal births….these things happen)
Oh. my. fucking. God. This woman cracks me the hell up! I really wish she’d do stand-up, ‘cuz I’d be in the front row every night. It’s not only her humor that gets me though. Its her brutal honesty, and her fearless way of expressing herself. I envy her. I think I’m going to cyber-stalk her. (KIDDING!!! geeeezzzz…) It’s not a gross, detail heavy account of her experiences. (Thank the GODS!)
Chapter titles include: Fuck a Duck, Jiffy Lube, Horny Goat Weed, Handicap Parking Space for a Crooked Penis?, Clone a Willy and Mary Had a Little Lamb just to name a few.
I laughed….and laughed….and laughed…until my 12 year old son asked what was so funny. Then I had to leave the room because obviously I couldn’t tell him I was reading a book of sex toy reviews. (I like to think that I’m not a bad influence on my kids….but I’m prone to fantasies, after all.)
Guys (or rather, GALS) you gotta get this book! The humor notwithstanding….it’s an e-book that is remarkably well formatted too! LOL! A rarity, I can assure you! My Nook can attest to that! And her writing flows like the spoken word. I can honestly hear the conversation with her in my head when I read her writing! She’s brutally honest, yet doesn’t take herself too seriously – unlike a lot of bloggers out there.
Ok – Pulitzer Prize material it’s not. BUT…..
Marymac you are awesome! YOU ROCK!! You crack me up! I love your book and I love your humor! If I knew you were gonna be at BlogHer, I’d sell my youngest child to pay for my plane ticket and hotel. Oh. Wait. That’d be illegal so maybe I shouldn’t post that here. Aw crap. Unless I sell her I can’t afford to go anyway….unemployment and all that…
**disclaimer: All I got for writing this was a free copy of the book. It’s not expensive. Go buy it.
