Wishful Actually Happened


I have to give kudos (or ka-dooz, as Ramona Singer from the Real Housewives of New York would say) to Carrie Fisher, who recently successfully lost 50 pounds on the Jenny Craig program.  Apparently the goal now is to fit into her Princess Leia gold bikini and prance around the house like an idiot (that would interesting if her mother Debbie Reynolds dropped by unexpectedly for afternoon tea).  Carrie and Debbie seem to be unlikely next door neighbours, but they are!

Two autumns ago, I read Carrie's autobiography, Wishful Drinking.  I read it in one evening and laughed out loud the entire way through.  I seem to have a penchant for the hilariously absurd, and that's what the book was.   The sometimes (quite often) colourful language and ridiculous situations were so entertaining, no wonder it was made into a Broadway show.  I hope Carrie writes a follow up book ....Wishful Actually Happened?
