Book Recommendation

I picked up Happy Birthday or Whatever by Annie Choi on the bargain rack for $1 at one of my favorite bookstores a few weeks ago. I can't believe this book was on the bargain rack! I would have payed full price times two for this gem. It's completely hilarious.

The book is s series of stories about Annie's growing up in American with parents that are Korean immigrants. The cross-culture commentary puts me into stitches. I was laughing so hard in the bathtub (a favorite spot of mine to read) last night my roommate asked me what I was doing in there.

I think my favorite chapter so far is about the Pope. However, I found my favorite quote last night: "I would never agree to wake up early to do anything except for sleep."

I will be following Annietown, Annie Choi's blog from here on out.

Read it! And yes, AC, you can borrow my copy when I finish.

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
