Happy Birthday Amy Sedaris!

When I am feeling a ‘lil DITD (down in the dumps), I turn to YouTube like a medicine cabinet filled with antidotes to a weary day. All that’s usually needed are some video clips of my idol Amy Sedaris to make the tears of THIS CLOWN quickly run dry. SHE MAKE ME LAUGH THIS WOMAN! Let us celebrate her day of birth with some reflection…


Hopefully many of you already own the hilarious cookbook she came out with a few years ago called I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, but did you know that she has another book coming out later this year??? It’s a craft book called Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People. I cannot WAIT! Look at that sick dress she is wearing on the cover!! I’m assuming it’s made by Mary Adams who is known to make all of her gorge dresses. UGH jealousing over here…

Amy Sedaris is the inspiration for my imaginary public access television show, Ghetto Home Fabulous. If I had a terminal illness, I would totally call the Make A Wish Foundation and make them fly her out to my town so we could dress up in spandex and high tops and spend an afternoon power-walking, then doing crafts. After that, I could die happy.

Evan and I just watched the entire third season of Strangers With Candy the other night. Yes, it was a bit crazy, but worth every trashy tobacco stained second. Yay, Amy!
