    1. A version of this review appeared on my blog, drinkingandink.Popsugar 2016 Reading Challenge: A book you can read in a day.If you're reading my reviews, you probably know me, and if you know me, you probably know the following things.You know when I reviewed Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? I suggested that she writes like everyone’s best friend, while recognizing that she would probably not actually be my best friend. Here is another book that reads like it’s written by [...]

    2. If you are a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and obsessive enough to look up obscure riffs, this collection of short personal essays from Mary Jo Pehl will tell you the following:* Who Rick and Julie are* How glamorous it was to be the daughter of the Mayor of Circle Pines* What it means to be Employee of the Month at a temp agency* How much MJ loved Roddy McDowell* What MJ learned from late night movies she watched while babysitting* How we fans are perceived by the MST Alumni, well, MJ any [...]

    3. When Mary Jo Pehl replaced Frank Conniff and eventually Trace Beaulieu as a "Mad' on the cult tv show Mystery Science Theater 3000, not everybody was happy. Many show message boards hated her character, especially replacing two icons. On a recent release of her newest venture, Cinematic Titanic, Pehl drew more applause from the audience than Beaulieu and Conniff. The message boards talk of how much they love Mary Jo, her charming, friendly personality is winning people over. This collection of e [...]

    4. Perhaps it is just me, but I am utterly and completely under the humorous spell Mary Jo weaves in this book. I fear to drink liquids while reading this for fear of doing a spit-take. I won't say everyone will connect with the humor the same way I have, but I think everyone should at least check it out just in case.

    5. If I have a complaint about this book, it's that its too short. I love her writing; while the book made me laugh out loud more than once, there's also some poignancy to it and some melancholy which makes the humor all the more affecting. Great stuff!

    6. As always, Mary Jo Pehl is hilarious! Ms. Pehl always finds humor in ordinary and mundane aspects of life and retells them with wit and charm. This book is on par with authors like Sedaris and Vowel, so if you like their work Employee of the Monthwill be right up your alley.

    7. I gave this book to my husband for Christmas and we ended up reading it out loud to one another. It's absolutely delightful. Pehl is both hysterical and at times deeply moving. An absolute gem that will please both MST3K fans and those who just love great storytelling.

    8. I didn't fall totally in love with this like I thought I would. I thought I would be rolling with laughter, but instead I only chuckled aloud a handful of times.It did make me want to watch MST3K on netflix though, so there's that.

    9. Fun and personal essays from Mary Jo Pehl of MST3K and Cinematic Titanic. Some real laugh out loud moments here. Self-published, so support her so she can write more!

    10. Oh that Mary Jo lived in my neighborhood and could keep me in witty banter and snide remarks all through the year. In exchange, I would buy her lunch every few weeks.

    11. This was a super quick read. Mary Jo Pehl was Pearl in MST 3000. This book may not contain enough stories about MST 3000 for hardcore fans, but it was funny.
