Finally Friday

Well, assume I am taking care of Ray and his knee.  If he rings that damn bell one more time.....

Meanwhile - Happy Lunar New Year from February 1 - it's the year of the Tiger.  Hear me roar!

 As witnessed through the years, I love David Sedaris.  His humor just cracks me up. His latest collection of diaries  - Carnival of Snackery 2003-2020 - once again have a zillion gem entries. 

cover blurb - If it's naval gazing you're after, you've come to the wrong place; ditto treacly self-examination. His observations are outward: a fight between two men on a bus, dirty jokes from book signings, or just afternoons with his equally outrageous bonkers sister, Amy. 

These diaries cover a lot of travel and every airplane encounter is a hoot. New administrations, new restrictions on speech and conduct, and trash. No issue is left untouched. And there's Hugh, his husband. The man must be a saint - he definitely can put in the last word (at least per David's entry of the day. )

I quickly looked through to pick an entry as an example of David Sedaris' comic genius. I found myself laughing out loud again and truly could not pick one. 

So, trust me - enjoy the Carnival of Snackery. You can't just read one. 


  1. Hi Joanne - this sounds a delightful read - just what you need to Ray, while you make sure Ray heals back to his healthy self. Patience isn't easy though ... very happy to see your tummy is getting some exercise!!! Cheers Hilary

    1. indeed - I can always count on Sedaris to lighten my spirit. and Ray's doing pretty well

  2. Well, who gave him the bell? 🤔

    I had to look up David Sedaris, and I'm still not sure who is his - but a book which can make you laugh out loud is great.

    1. I indeed have not put the bell out of reach. It's fun to ignore it - ha!
      And David Sedaris has been around forever - he's really a different spirit.
