Self Help Tip #1 from Amy Sedaris...

I just got a new book by Amy Sedaris which leads me to believe she is the funniest woman alive. I am a fan of all of her work on Strangers With Candy and I have many of her brother's novels as well. To put things into perspective I have been watching her since the late 90's along with Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert (way before his show). This book presents a comedic take on party planning and is entitled "I Like You: Hospitality Under The Influence." Already I am laughing and I am only on page 18. Prior to planning the party Sedaris suggests that you must know yourself as a party thrower. The tip list she gives is listed below because I loved it.

This is sure to bring me hours of joy as I plan on reading it in the tub as suggested on the list. Amy Sedaris is a jack of all trades which I hope to someday be. She is really one person that I admire greatly for her achievements in all areas of entertainment and creativity. I want to use my humor the way she does and create something wild, which will in the end be something offensive that only a select group of people will laugh at. But that is sometimes the way of the world.

Publishers Weekly quote: "Sedaris's sidesplitting guide to throwing parties hopes to return readers to the times when the word "entertainment" was "charmingly old-fashioned, like courtship or back alley abortions. While her tongue is firmly in cheek, novice party-planners will actually find some helpful hints along the way as Sedaris offers instructions and real recipes. Her tips run the gamut from how to properly freeze meatballs (freeze them on a cookie sheet before putting them into a freezer bag so they won't stick together) and deal with the inebriated ("Better to cut them off rather than pretend it's not happening and then allow them to stay over and wet your bed"). "

Yay! I love Amy Sedaris as well! I've been meaning to check out that book. I got a book called Tease for xmas, which is all about turning t-shirts into other things, and she's one of the contributors. (She made an eye burrito.. fun!)

Amy is my hero for sure! Moira, we need to get together again when I get back to school [Jan 14] and I can show you the book. Not to mention we can catch up on some dumpster diving ;)
