Summary

DOING GERMANY is a series of books for those who are looking for an easy read and to laugh. This is the first book. 
 
Agnieszka Paletta did what most of us only dream about doing - she quit her job, family and friends and travelled to live in a foreign country. And what's more, she did this more than once. Call it reckless or fearless, that is she. 
 
This laid-back, entertaining book is the story of this Polish-Canadian-lover-of-Italy's move to Germany, a new frontier. Through her eyes, discover the curiosities of her surroundings; love some and gape at others, yearn for home, try to buy one, laugh with her and at her. 
 
DOING GERMANY is travel writing at its best: a funny, irresistible portrait of Germany, set against the backdrop of Paletta's relationship and vigorous loyalties as well as her devotion to Poland, Canada and Italy.

    Manipulators and liars, egomaniacs, bullies, interrupters, condescenders, ice queens, backstabbers, hypocrites, withholders, belligerents, self-deceivers, whiners, know-it-alls, nitpickers: these are some of the characters you’ll encounter in Difficult People, a collection of stories that investigates and celebrates difficult people (and some animals).
     
    As these characters fumble through their quests for YouTube fame, stand-up glory, romantic love, stable employment or anyone who can tolerate them, they reveal that we are all, in our own ways, difficult people.
     
    Praise for Catriona Wright’s recent book of poetry, Table Manners:
     
    “... a baroque feast of juicy diction and inventive wordplay that explores food as social ritual and slippery signifier of desire.”
     
    —Barb Carey, The Toronto Star
     
    “Deft, dark, and unflinching, Catriona Wright’s work is stand-up comedy for the mind.”
     
    —Emily Schultz, author of The Blondes
     
    “If you've ever Instagrammed your lunch, or directed distain toward somebody who has, this is the book for you. The poems are vivid, surprising, and pretty much devourable.”
     
    —Kerry Clare, 49th Shelf
     
    “Tightly woven and elaborate in their conceit, the poems in Table Manners linger both on the mind and palate.”
     
    —Gillian Sze, Montreal Review of Books

    Are you someone who's always running late for work? Is your boss getting fed up with your generic explanations like, "I was stuck in traffic" or "I was having car troubles"? If you need to spice up your repertoire of excuses, '365 Reasons Why I'm Too Late For Work' is a must have in your arsenal of deceit. Is your boss suspicious of your latest half-assed attempt to explain your tardiness? Then hit him with a new excuse he's sure to never see coming. Try this on for size, "I got stuck in the bathtub." Or how about, "I drove the wrong way. My GPS hung upside down in my car." With a wide range of clever explanations, you have a new one to try out every day. Sure, it's not recommended to burn one every day and show up late for work for a flat year, but no one's judging. 
     
    As a warning to readers, the elaborate phrases in this book are not confirmed to exonerate your tardiness. Some are valid, boss-proof ideas that should get you off the hook, while others will test your boss's patience and sense of humor. Does your boss not possess a single humorous bone in his body? Well, excuse away at your own risk. This book does not guarantee you'll keep your job, but hey, you had a laugh, and in the end, that's what life's all about. And truthfully, how can you pass attempting a gem like, "I couldn't find a parking spot, so I've parked my car back at home and came by foot." So, embrace your tardiness with a little flair of creativity with '365 Reasons Why I'm Too Late For Work'. You'll never regret it. Well, unless you lose your job. But you probably won't... right?

    So what did Scots have to smile about this year? When they watched Britain voting for Brexit, when they heard the constant arguments about independence, and when they saw a strangely coiffed son of a Scotswoman become President of the United States, they turned to their usual survival technique – they laughed. 
    When they saw Rangers stumble on their road back to the top, a Scot, Andy Murray, becoming a top world sportsman, and a Scottish horse winning the Grand National, they naturally made a joke or two. And in their quieter moments they recalled the patter of street traders, how they still cannot fathom the opposite sex, and why we all go mad at the first sign of sunshine. 
    All these and more made up The Herald’s funniest stories of the year, published every day in the newspaper’s ‘Diary’ column. And now the very best have been gathered here for you to enjoy all over again.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to share the lighter side of airport and aviation employees.  The vast majority of people I encountered at the airport [from all classes and careers], enjoyed humor.  Additionally, I found that the average person can recognize the difference between fact and fiction, truth and lies and more importantly, humor versus sarcasm.  As I mentioned earlier, humor has been determined to be a stress reducer, and often, a means of increasing morale.  
    
    Remember, I referred to actual passengers and employees in trying to encourage the innocent while protecting the guilty.
