LIFE AS IBLOW IT
“I work really hard, and because o that I believe that I should be able to play really hard. It’s not easy to fnd a guy who can handle that. It’s also not easy to fnd a guy who doesn’t mind that at one point in my lie, I slept with some-body named ‘Paul’s riend.’ ”
In this wickedly funny and irreverent memoir,
writer and co-median Sarah Colonna opens up about love, life, and pursuing her dreams...and then screwing it all up.
Sarah Colonna believes that there are very dierent personalities living in-side each o us, and that sometimes those personalities are at war with oneanother.

The other would like to get married, stay in, order Chineseood, and have a responsible, secure lie.From her ormative years in small-town Arkansas to a later career o dates,drinks, and questionable day jobs, Colonna attempts to reconcile her respon-sible side with her un-loving side. Sometimes this pans out, and sometimesshe fnds hersel in Mexico handing out her phone number to anyone whocalls her pretty. She moves to Los Angeles to pursue acting, but or years isorced to hone her bartending skills; she wants a serious boyriend, but won’tgive up nights at the bar with her riends. She tries to behave like an adult, butcan’t seem to stop acting like a rat boy. In the end, she discovers that theredoesn’t have to be just one or the other. And i there’s one thing Colonna haslearned rom her many missteps, it’s that hindsight is always 100 proo.
