Book review: How to eat like a hot chick

Well, we’re into Day Two of “Clean up your ##%$*!#$ rooms or I will take care of it Thursday afternoon with a Big Black Garbage Bag” and there is still no progress. On the plus side, it has been deliciously quiet with the boys stuck in their respective rooms, and I’m getting an enormous amount of work done. Funny how cause meets effect like that.

Another book review. Our weekly visits to the most awesomest library in the Western Hemisphere has pushed me to read more. I’ve read more this summer than I have in the last several years, and I’m one happy camper. I’m currently in the middle of a book on perfectionism and happiness (and hooboy it’s an eye-opener for me!) and needed something a little lighter for my exhausted brain.

Enter How to Eat Like a Hot Chick by Jodi Lipper and Cerina Vincent. First off, there is really no redeeming quality to this book. Pure fluff. Cotton candy for the brain. But, like cotton candy, it’s light and fun and you just gotta have that sometimes. There is nothing in here that you don’t already know about eating and/or dieting, but it’s still a fun read. As I read this, what kept going through my head was, “This is Kelley. Kelley is a Hot Chick. I am not yet a Hot Chick.” And I realized I needed to work on my Hotness…mostly in the shoes department, but this is about eating, not shoes. If you have an aversion to profanity, this is not the book for you. The f-bomb is carpet bombed throughout the book. If you have an aversion to comparisons between food and sex/men/things you can do to men with food…this is not the book for you. If, however, you need a fun, easy (I whipped through this in an afternoon) read for lounging about with a cocktail, this is the book for you.

Then go back to the harder reads…like the comics.

    Sounds great! Sounds exactly like something I could read while lounging in my hammock, enjoying the balmy breeze. Oh, but wait…I haven’t even stepped foot in my damn backyard YET this summer!!! I’ve been working at this crazy bar of ours for what feels like 24/7 the past few weeks! Ugh! I hope my brother gets back to his old self soon, cuz his MUCH older sister needs a break!! And, she needs to read some fluff!!!

    So are they talking about like diet food when comparing to men and sex? Cause I have already done the whole chocolate is like sex post, I need to fall in love with celery.

    And I am not hot. I just fake it till I make it babe, you can do it too.

    Ah, yes, the Big Black Garbage Bag, I know it well. I am so glad that I’m not the only one who has to use the threat of tossing every last thing in the trash just to get the monsters to pick up the crap.

    I learned it from my mother, how about you?
