Hey, that was a funny. Forgot about that.

Anyway, Susie mentioned that she was reading "The Book of Liz" by Amy and David Sedaris. I had never heard of it, so I did some googlin'. For those of you who don't know about it, it's a play -- one that I am now dying to see. I hope they take it on the road someday!

I had never heard of it either, but it came as a freebie (in print) when I ordered the complete cd set of all of David & Amy’s works.

I am just very entertained by the antics in all their stuff.
This play is hilarious.
The conversations over “cheese balls”; “sweating buckets” and the Mr. Peanut suit kept me laughing. Even now every time I see an advertisement for the nuts, I smirk to myself.
Also the dialog between members of the ultra-conservative Squeamish sect is amusing.

It is a very short read, but worth the effort.

This is weird, and I may get people angry, but I stumbled on to "Barrel Fever" when my (crazy) neighbor was throwing away a hardbound edition of it. I just started reading it with abolutely no clue about it. Just seeing two guys with their tounges sticking out was enough. Well, I went on a little spree of carrying this book around and reading it to friends until all of us were wetting our pants. For about a month it was like a spell was cast and I could spread it around. I even wen to Paris and tried (unsuccessfully) to find him. Anyway, after that I heard more of him and his frequent readings on NPR but I have to say, his voice and contrived campy nature started getting on my nerves. It was just too affected for me and the whole thing lost its enigmatic spell. I've tried to read the other stuff but it just falls on deaf ears now.

Anyone want to buy a used copy of "Barrel Fever"? :o

I'm reading Naked, and I have to stop reading it before bed. Because I laugh so hard that I get awake again. It's my first David Sedaris book. I am loving it. <p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END-->Well it's 1, 2, 3, What're we fightin' for? </p>

*bump*

David Sedaris is one of the funniest authors alive. I absolutely love "The Last You'll Hear From Me." I think the line about her friend's pinky finger "smelling a mile off like her uncle's dick" is quite possibly one of the greatest lines ever.
Santaland Diaries was an excellent essay, and I remember some people doing a play based on Santaland Diaries back during Christmas time.
"Look! If you step on the magic star, you can see Cher!"

I'm not sure what the title of this essay is, but all I remember is a line about having to break up a turd into manageable pieces and laughing my ass off.

Sedaris > me. <p><!--EZCODE CENTER START--><div style="text-align:center">-Lily-<!--EZCODE BR START-->

Holy shit! I went to that site thinking "He won't be coming anywhere near me".
He'll be in Birmingham in October. That's only 2 or 2 and 1/2 hours away. Driving distance!
Ivery well may be there....

Thanks for the research, HJ... as always.
