Kooky Holiday Books

I love reading people's bios. Amy Sedaris wins hands down.

Here's a sample: Amy had a fatty suit made to wear home to Raleigh for a brief visit to screw with her weight-conscious father. It tore him up to think that his daughter had "let herself go" but Amy did it for the laughs.

I want her cookbook for Christmas. I already have all of her brother's books - David Sedaris by the way. If you're looking for a holiday laugh, you have to buy his collection of short stories - Holidays on Ice. The Santaland Diaries is a classic.

Here's another gem from Amy's bio: When Ethan Hawke told Amy she had the prettiest dress at a party, she told him, "It looks better on the floor. You could talk me out of it." He was apparently taken quite by surprise.

Check out more silly trivia at

Her cookbook called I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence is on Amazon. Here's a page. Cute!

Oh my... that is a real confection of a picture. As Jack said when I showed it to him, "that puts bad thoughts in a man's head."

I love Amy.

I love her character... Jerri Blank.. A boozer... a user.. and a loser.

Does it get any better?
