My Review - 3 1/2 More Sugar Please
No need for a summary in my opinion. If you are a fan of Ellen your expectations will be met, no surprises, with Ellen, what you see is what you get. Ellen is silly and you enjoy laughing at her and with her. At times I rolled my eyes, laughed out loud, giggled to myself and said what the hell is she saying, oh right, ok that is so Ellen why did I fall that crap, lol.
Hands down my favourite chapter was Working it Out, about parallel parking, exercise, specifically her personal trainer. He tried to talk her out of eating ice cream and drinking more water, she told him she does, eating ice cream makes her thirsty, lmao. The conversations with her personal trainer were flipping hilarious.
Another chapter was This is How We Live, this is about how technology and everything new makes it so easy for us.
We're just so lazy. We used to have breath mints. Now we have breath strips that just dissolve on our tongue. Can we not suck anymore?
She is perfectly sarcastic when talking about opening packages for the first time including scissors which of course you need scissors to open. CD's and batteries versus packaging of light bulbs, totally ridiculous but laugh out loud worthy.
My favourite going down memory lane was the old telephone. This was after the cell phone stories.
Then the kitchen wall phone came along, usually a lovely mustard or an avocado green. It had a ninety-foot-long cord that allowed you to walk all around the house, clearing tables, wrapping around dogs, so that by the time you hung up the phone, it had become this tangled wire of cord confusion. But what was fun about it was that every once in a while you would hold the phone upside down by the cord and let that thing spin and spin, around and around, till it found its center. Good times.
I have some chapters bookmarked so I can go back for a quick laugh when needed. When you need a quick fix of Ellen and you miss her show, this is the way to go. If you enjoy audiobooks I hear they are fantastic.
I think Ellen is such a fool but I love her just the way she is, don't want her to change. I would love to see her in person.
This was great to get me out of my reading slump, but a week pretty much wasted and hard to accept.
