For 10 years, Notaro has been entertaining Phoenix newspaper readers with her autobiographical exploits and unique life experiences. She writes about a world of hourly-wage jobs that require absolutely no skills, horrific high school reunions, and hangovers that leave her surprised that she woke up in the first place. The misadventures of Laurie and her fellow Idiot Girls unfold in a world that everyone will recognize but no one has ever described so hilariously.
She thought she'd have more time. Laurie Notaro figured she had at least a few good years left. But no-it's happened. She has officially lost her marbles. From the kid at the pet-food store checkout line whose coif is so bizarre it makes her seethe "I'm going to kick his hair's ass!" to the hapless Sears customer-service rep on the receiving end of her Campaign of Terror, no one is safe from Laurie's wrath.
