Something Cleverish

January 28, 2009

I really don't care that we're in the worst credit crisis/recession/national freakout since the Great Depression. Each and every one of you should whip out your overused credit card, forget about the distinct possibility of foreclosure, and order this book immediately.

Don't worry about talking it over with your spouse, I hereby grant you immunity from those silly little household money rules.

The book is called "Something Cleverish," it has an adorable little bird on the cover, and c'mon, it's less than twenty bucks. And think about it--what can you even get for less than twenty dollars these days? A Big Mac will make you chunky, a hamster will drive you insane without offering an ounce of joy, and a cheap hooker? Well, I'll be honest here, a cheap hooker will give you a roaring case of chlamydia.

And geeze-um, you don't want a vintage STD do you?

I didn't think so.

Here are two more reasons you should buy this book:

1) All of the proceeds go to benefit the lovely Mr. & Mrs. Nielson. In case you haven't heard, she's a far better homemaker than I'll ever be, and they were critically injured in a plane crash last August. You can learn more about NieNie and her family here, or here, or here. Or now that Nie is back to writing (as best as she can with hands that are hard to get working), you can read her own blog here.

2) I'm in the book. Actually, I'm the third of forty-two entries, and as long as the editor wasn't going by the "save the best for last" rule, I think that's pretty fantastic. My entry has never been featured on this blog, so if you want to know something new about yours truly--specifically my nipular region--you'll have to buy the book.

And if I haven't convinced you yet, read this little snippet of fan mail I got today:

I couldn't finish reading it I was laughing so hard…so here I am at work with NO MORE MAKE UP ON…cause I cried it all off…you KILL ME…thanks for making me laugh…

That came from a nice, random lady named Miranda. A lady who I've fallen in love with.

Seriously, what are you waiting for?

Time to start scrounging in my coat pockets and the couch cushions.
Can I buy the book with wadded-up Kleenex and linty Cheerios?

I got the book over the weekend. Your entry was the best one in there. I think I peed a little I was laughing so hard. I totally made my husband read it and told everyone else I know to buy it. Even if it's for charity, it's worth it just to read that post.

I Have the book. I read your story. You always make me laugh. Listening to the weather forecast on Good Morning America (while getting ready for work to pay for the book) they were talking of the fridig temps in the East Coast area and I seriously had a moment of silence for YOUR NIPPLES.
