"Well, it's my fucking birthday again. One year ago today I remember being so sure that this was the year everything would turn around. I could sense it. I could feel it in the air. But here I am, a full year later, just as screwed up as ever, still making the same mistakes over and over. So I am initiating a new tradition. My plan is to carefully scrutinize my past in the name of not being condemned to repeat it by writing myself an annual report on my birthday. Kind of a personal state of the union to help me chart my profits and losses or at least get a clearer picture of what I am doing right and wrong. I'm not stupid enough to think it's going to keep me from making mistakes ever agin but it would be nice if at least I could start making some new ones." So begins Merrill Markoe's laugh-out-loud-funny book about a 36-year old woman and her trials and tribulations (parents, men, you know...). Markoe is an Emmy-award winning writer from David Letterman's show, and her concise wit is wonderful and refreshing. A quick, enjoyable read!
