So, while procrastinating, I mean resting from my long bike ride with Parker in the hot hot heat, I was clicking around on all of those blogs I like to read and ended up on Ohmythatisawesome. Have you all heard about this blog? It's hilarious! I always wished I had developed a sense of wit and humor as I was growing up (i guess it's never too late, though, eh?). These folks, though..they've got it. And they have great taste, too! Their blog is all about cool new things and books and musings and written with a healthy dose of the hilariously intelligent new friend in your building who you wish you could get drinks with every night.

They mentioned the new book by David Sedaris, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, which is (as they say) side splittingly funny. I've read, rather, listened to, all of his books. Reading his book is satisfyingly funny but listening to him read his book (books) is so funny you'll feel like you just did 1000 stomach crunches. I've enjoyed many a long night sewing while listening to David Sedaris. If you want a good starter recording, try David Sedaris: Live at Carnegie won't regret it!

So today, go and have a laugh...then a mint julep.


  1. Oh, I agree! The first time I listened to David Sedaris on tape, I almost drove off the road laughing. That was the end of David Sedaris in the car. I have read the new one--it was at my library and I couldn't wait--and it's great. Would love to listen to it someday.

    Thanks for the tip about that blog.

  2. This comment has nothing to do with this post...I just found your blog and really enjoy it. I bought one of your bags around January and it's like my security blanket. I LOVE IT. I also get tons of compliments on it and find myself writing the etsy site address on pieces of paper for people and your shop name. A few weeks ago I passed a girl in a restaurant carrying my same bag! We smiled at one another like we were members of a secret club. :) Thanks for making great stuff! If I ever wear this thing out i'll buy another but it seems to be holding up so well. It's a blessing and a curse.

  3. i am so excited, i'm such a fan of yours. i just bought my first moop bag, the fraulein in black!
