Format: Paperback
I just got my copy of RANDOM ISH & OTHER NONENSE today, and I didn't have time to really sit down and read it, but decided to flip through it, anyway. Then I ended up completely engrossed. It's a series of funny and sometimes poignant observations about life from a mother of two, who covers life's gamut, including kids, men, work, commuting and even bathroom etiquette. One of my favorite observations was in that last category: "Just because you recognize the shoes of the person next to you doesn't mean they want to have a conversation."

The book is a good size to stash in your purse and read whenever you have a few minutes to kill. The observations are status-update length and I guarantee you'll be smiling and laughing, then completely irritated when you reach the front of whatever line you're in and have to put the book away.

I very much recommend this and can't wait for Volume 2. And there MUST be a Volume 2.

While some of observations might be funny, they just sound like a crass person who has raised a bunch of brats and now has fun putting them down. Dirty language does not make something funny. Gave up after the first 'chapter'. Definitely not worth wasting my time on. On the plus side, it was free.

When a book makes you belly laugh..you know it's a great one. Sissy has a great sense of humor that every woman/mom can relate too. Great read an cannot wait for a second book!

Random Ish is hilarious. It is a quick read, but filled with enough funny tales to keep you laughing long after you have finished it. The author is great at telling real-life stories, and exposing the many feelings we all have deep down, but haven't the courage to share out loud. It is definitely a book you want to share with your friends.

One of the most truthful things this author said was, "If you are looking for literary art or intellectual stimulation you might want to pass on this volume." While I agree with some of the frustrations presented, and I like the idea behind this work, I must side with Julian Fellowes when he penned, "Vulgarity is no substitute for wit."

You know those bumper stickers that cram universal truths into one sentence? This is like that - a distillation of all those instantly recognizable moments.

Read it for the things your mother would tell you if she wasn't so nice and the things you mutter to yourself.

Laugh out loud fun that hit the mark quite a few times. Loved it.
Some of the conversation exchanges actually have been said in my home.
