Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin by Kathy Griffin © 2009
Synopsis: Writing with her trademark wit, the feisty comic settles a few old scores, celebrates the friends and mentors who helped her claw her way to the top, and shares insider gossip about celebrity behavior—the good, the bad, and the very ugly. She recounts the crazy ups and downs of her own career and introduces us to some of the supertalented people she encountered before they got famous (or, in some cases, after fame went to their heads). Word to the wise: If you’ve ever crossed Kathy Griffin at some point in your life, check the index for your name.
Along the way, Kathy reveals intimate details about her life before and after she made the big time. She opens up about everything from growing up with a dysfunctional family in suburban Illinois to bombing as a young comedian in L.A., from her well-publicized plastic surgery disasters to her highly publicized divorce, and more. Only in this book will you learn how the dinner table is the best training ground for a career in stand-up, how speaking your mind can bite you on the ass and buy you a house, and which people in Kathy’s life have taught her the most valuable lessons—both inside and outside the entertainment industry. Refreshingly candid, unflinchingly honest, and full of hilarious “Did she really say that?” moments, Official Book Club Selection will make you laugh until you cry, or just puke up a little bit.

Taking the day off to recoup from the weekend’s festivities (photos coming soon). Spending the day alone, maybe going out to lunch and book browsing somewhere. Definitely taking time to smell the roses. Dinner tonight with P. Good times. Seriously.

R.I.P. Patrick Swayze

Though I never really went ‘Swayze Crazy’ (I have copyrighted that phrase, fyi) in the 80’s, I did enjoy several of Patrick Swayze’s films over the years, one of them being The Outsiders. I created a endcap at work, featuring all his movies in both VHS and DVD format. It’s always sad to see someone who was such a part of your childhood pop culture, pass away. And on a side note, why is it that it takes someone passing away before people show any interest? i.e. Michael Jackson’s passing spurring the CD/ DVD-buying frenzy. Personally, I find it kind of insulting.
