Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Hahahappy Weekend

One humorist I really envy is David Sedaris. While I do find that reading his essays one after the other gets tedious for me, I cannot deny that when an essay of his flies, it really goes through the roof. Plus he’s rich because of his humorous essays, while my blog can’t even muster anything beyond US$0.01 after almost a year of online ads.

I stumbled upon this video in YouTube—it’s David reading his essay on “Letterman”—and I thought I’d share it with you. That, and the fact that I don’t have a Friday episode yet and it’s almost 8pm.



Have a happy weekend, folks!

nyehehehe... olivia... i blame you for having me hoooked on sedaris. just finished reading his "dress your family in corduroy"

were you able to see him in person at powerbooks, greenbelt when he came here to read sleections from his books? methinks he's a more affable version of jessica z.

Just finished reading his "Holidays On Ice", and before that I've read "Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denims".

Search for 6-8 black men on youtube. He's hilarious! I have one of his audiobooks.

He believes reading out loud is a big part of his creative process, and he interprets his written work excellently. :-)

Just finished reading "Me Talk Pretty One Day" last week. I love it. The toilet humour in "Big Boy" reminds me of Misterhubs.
