Recently I was asked if I’d like to have a copy of/and review Amy Sedaris’ new book Simple Times - Crafting for poor people. I jumped at the chance, JUMPED [whispering] And it was already on my shopping list. Score! [/end whispering]. I love, love, love Amy Sedaris and I think she is HILARIOUS. Here’s a YouTube clip of Amy on a recent Martha visit.
As soon as Simple Times came, I thought I’d do a quick thumb through… only to have gotten sucked in and I couldn’t put it down. There’s even some recipes in the book. Not that I know how to use that big box thing in my kitchen that gets hot - but there’s no way I can resist a recipe that’s called My Plumbers Cheesecake.
This killed me: “KILLING JAR - Instructions: The easiest way to kill your butterflies is to use a killing jar. Simply soak… yada yada yada… blah blah blah… A label on the the jar make the whole thing cuter”. Yay… just like Dexter… he’s so darn cute when he follows The Code. And then there’s the how to make a roach clip with a crab claw - it had me roaring. This is NOT your momma’s crafting book from the 80’s. Now I’m having a fantasy Carol Duval making crab claw roach clips with Gary Collins in my head. Dude. Carol. Dude. Gary. Sweet.
OMG… so naughty and so funny. Charlie Sheen would blush.
