I'M NOT SUFFERING FROM INSANITY... I'M ENJOYING EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
Release date: 08/01/2002
Women who have shared Linamen's hilarious life journeys in Just Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt and Sometimes I Wake Up Grumpy... and Sometimes I Let Him Sleep know her writing to be funny, forthright and unforgettable. Linamen continues in her usual comedic style with this offering of 14 ways to combat the insufferable circumstances of life by embracing a sort of "insanity" as a solution in and of itself. Linamen's life is comparable to a leisurely read of the Sunday comics, and she tells all. Guaranteed to produce more than a chuckle, her suggestions for coping with life include stealing furnishings from one room to redecorate another, purchasing matching panties and bras to help enhance "boditude," and selecting a horror film to help a stressed-out spouse relax. Granted, these ideas are presented with tongue planted firmly in cheek, and even Linamen admits her blunders as she speeds along life's highway. She also balances the laughter with serious entreaties to seek for God amidst every circumstance. The author's deep faith, and her conviction that the Bible is the source for all help and direction, comes across plainly, as do her nudgings for women to seek Christ first and foremost. Closing out each chapter is a compact list of practical (read: serious) problem-solving ideas that do work outside of Linamen's funny-farm world. This text is sure to gratify the expectations of the author's faithful readers with a generous dose of the comedic retreat from the stresses of life. (Sept.)
