"Coming home from a Hawaiian vacation with her best girlfriends, Lucy Fisher is stunned to find everything she owns tossed out on her front lawn, the locks changed, and her fianc??s phone disconnected?plus she?s just lost her job. With her world spinning wildly out of her control, Lucy decides to make a new start and moves upstate to live with her sister and nephew. But then things take an even more dramatic turn: A fatal encounter with public transportation lands Lucy not in the hereafter but in the nearly hereafter. She?s back in school, learning the parameters of spooking and how to become a successful spirit in order to complete a ghostly assignment. If Lucy succeeds, she?s guaranteed a spot in the next level of the afterlife?but until then, she?s stuck as a ghost in the last place she would ever want to be. Trying to avoid being trapped on earth for all eternity, Lucy crosses the line between life and death and back again when she returns home. Navigating the perilous channels of the paranormal, she?s determined to find out why her life crumbled and why, despite her ghastly death, no one seems to have noticed she?s gone. But urgency on the spectral plane?in the departed person of her feisty grandmother, who is risking both their eternal lives?requires attention, and Lucy realizes that you get only one chance to be spectacular in death"--Page 4 of cover

We thought you would be prettier : true tales of the dorkiest girl alive by Laurie Notaro( Recording )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

She thought she'd have more time. Laurie Notaro figured she had at least a few good years yet. 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. Her cranky side seems to have eaten the rest of her-inner-thigh Chub Rub and all. And the results are breathtaking. Her riffs on e-mail spam, eBay ("There should be an eBay wading pool, where you only get to bid on Precious Moments figurines and Avon products, and you have to make it through that first before jumping into the deep end"), and the perils of St. Patrick's Day ("When I'm driving, the last think I need is a herd of inebriates darting in and out of traffic like loaded chickens") are the stuff of legend. And for Laurie, it's all 100 percent true
The idiot girls' action adventure club by Laurie Notaro( )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introducing Laurie Notaro, the leader of the Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club. Every day she fearlessly rises from bed to defeat the evil machinations of dolts, dimwits, and creepy boyfriends-and that's before she even puts on a bra. For the past ten years, Notaro has been entertaining Phoenix newspaper readers with her wildly amusing autobiographical exploits and unique life experiences. She writes about a world of hourly-wage jobs that require absolutely no skills, a mother who hands down judgments more forcefully than anyone seated on the Supreme Court, horrific high school reunions, and hangovers that leave her surprised she woke up in the first place. The misadventures of Laurie and her fellow Idiot Girls ("too cool to be in the Smart Group") unfold in a world that everyone will recognize but no one has ever described so hilariously. She delivers the goods: life as we all know it

Hauptbeschreibung Wenn du bei der Laserhaarentfernung plötzlich feststellst, dass du - anders als bisher angenommen - nicht nur ein Doppel-, sondern ein Dreifach-Kinn hast, auf dem sich - für eine Frau - unerhört viele Haare tummeln, dann kann dir das schon mal den Tag vermiesen. Genauso wie fremde Schamhaare unter dem Hotelbett oder Menschen, die dich mit offenem Mund anhusten. Auch Laurie kennt und hasst solche Situationen - und löst sie auf ihre ganz eigene Weise ... 18 knackige Lebensweisheiten ober- und unterhalb der Gürtellinie

It looked different on the model : epic tales of impending shame and infamy by Laurie Notaro( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone's favorite Idiot Girl, Laurie Notaro, is just trying to find the right fit, whether it's in the adorable blouse that looks charming on the mannequin but leaves her in a literal bind or in her neighborhood after she's shamefully exposed at a holiday party by delivering a low-quality rendition of "Jingle Bells." Notaro makes misstep after riotous misstep as she shares tales of marriage and family, including stories about the dog-bark translator that deciphers Notaro's and her husband's own "woofs" a little too accurately, the emails from her mother with "FWD" in the subject line ("which in email code means Forecasting World Destruction"), and the dead-of-night shopping sprees and Devil Dog'devouring monkeyshines of a creature known as "Ambien Laurie." At every turn, Notaro's pluck and irresistible candor set the New York Times bestselling author on a journey that's laugh-out-loud funny and utterly unforgettable. From the Trade Paperback edition

The post office lady with the dragon tattoo by Laurie Notaro( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I had been dreading this day for more than a year. Everyone's favorite Idiot Girl, Laurie Notaro, is very close to wearing out her welcome in her hometown of Eugene, Oregon. Just a year ago, she was eighty-sixed from the local satellite post office for buying too many two-cent stamps ("The post office lady looked at me like I had just asked her if she wanted to buy my sex tape"). Now Notaro, needing to send an important care package to her nephew, returns to the scene of the non-crime--which is located inside a drugstore that is stocked with everything from Hello Kitty trinkets to fake poo to "the largest collection of aging candy on the West Coast." Will the post office lady who banned her the first time around kick her to the curb, or will Laurie use her Idiot Girl wiles to work her way back into the Mean Lady's good graces? In this hilarious story, New York Times bestselling author Laurie Notaro's signature pluck and irresistible candor are on full display and will have you laughing out loud

IT'S LAURIE NOTARO'S HOLIDAY HANDBOOK. PREPARE TO LAUGH YOUR TINSEL OFF. It's the most wonderful--and most dreadful--season of the year, when boxes of truffles attack your thighs, drunken holiday revelers stay long past their welcome, and your grandmother has conniptions at the department store over the price of hand lotion. Welcome to Laurie Notaro's Christmastime. In ten brand-new stories and three previously published favorites, Notaro shares the sidesplitting daily disasters of the holidays, like finding herself on emergency feminine product recon at midnight on Christmas Eve; surrendering to the inevitable Horrible Gift Parade by simply asking for holiday dish towels and giant white underpants from Sears; battling the morons in line at the Seventh Circle of Hell, otherwise known as the do-it-yourself craft store; and trying to live down her reputation as the Most Unfun Christmas Party Guest Ever, due to an unfortunate misunderstanding involving a fake overdose and emergency paramedics. So whether you find yourself at the Dull and Smart Party or the Raucous and Stupid Party this holiday season, you'll always know where to find Laurie--just follow the chocolate trail over to the cheese platter. She'll be the one dialing the cops. From the Hardcover edition
Vorlaut ist auch nicht leise by Laurie Notaro( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eigentlich dachte Laurie, sie hätte noch etwas Zeit. Noch ein paar gute Jahre. Aber nein, jetzt ist es passiert. Sie hat ganz offiziell den Verstand verloren. Und eine ganze Generation übersprungen: Sie ist Mitte dreißig und alt. Und sie wird wie ihre Mutter. Dabei wollte sie nur vernünftig sein. Leise. Nicht immer dazwischenquatschen, nicht immer ungeduldig sein. Doch ihre schrullige Seite hat endgültig gewonnen. Niemand ist jetzt mehr sicher vor Lauries unbändiger Wut: weder der junge Mann aus dem Tierfutterladen, der Laurie mit seiner hippen Frisur in tiefe Depressionen stürzt, noch die V
