I'm Writing About Helen Razer On My Mummyblog.

Hello tonight I'm launching Helen Razer's outstandingly brilliant new book called The Helen 100. It's her account of being left heartbroken after being unceremoniously left by her long-term partner so what did Helen do? Took the advice of her beautician/vaginal/anal waxer and went online and dated all these people. A whole host of people from all walks of life. She was searching for a person who liked the smell of chicken. (Cooked chicken, I checked.)

So it's at Gleebooks tonight at 6 for 6.30pm and you should come and watch two annoying obnoxious women onstage talking incredibly inappropriately. Tix available HERE or I think at the door. Cost is $12 or $9, or somewhere between the two.

You can buy the book HERE or I think tonight at Gleebooks. Twenty years ago I had a panic attack at the self-help section in Gleebooks because I couldn't find a book on panic attacks. Gleebooks is located in Glebe. I used to listen to Helen and Judith's Lucy's radio show The Ladies Lounge back in the 90's while I was a nanny for this guy's two children. He is now dead but he used to make a helluva good coffee. He taught me how to bake a potato and that when a kid pisses the bed you put the mattress outside in the sun because the sun makes ammonia go away, or something.

I don't particularly want to travel to Sydney today because I'm currently in the one of the worst clinical depressions and spiritual crises I've ever known but I adore Helen and it will be a very, very good night had by all. Afterwards I'll travel back up to the safe mountains and be reminded that I can do Big Things and maybe my life isn't over after all.

Helen once launched her own pisstake mummyblog called The Sponsored Lady which ruffled feathers but I thought it was hilarious. Helen's next book is on Marxism because she is very very smart. If it was anybody else but Helen I'd just cancel going tonight but it's Helen and I love Helen.



If you're coming, please come and say hello if you'd like some stilted awkward smalltalk because I'm actually a very shy and socially inept person. Or go talk to Helen herself, it's her show. The level of self-hate I currently have is astronomical but we have just got to Live Through This like Courtney after Kurt died. We'll all be dead soon enough CHEERY! Anyway, any pics coming through on Facebook or instagram will probably look great and that's the main thing here. Hashtag is #thehelen100 .. I just made that hashtag up, hope that's ok Gleebooks and Allen and Unwin.

Ok laters. My biggest concern is choosing the right cowboy books and compiling the right questions to ask her tonight, thank god she's very verbose.



ADDENDUM: It went really, really fucking well. A little bit X-rated but well. Audience awesome. I can do big things. Huge.
