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 Hall...you won't regret it!
So today, go and have a laugh...then a mint julep.
