I would like to listen to a bit of intelligent radio now and again but I don’t like NPR. I even sort of hate its guts. I want to like it because it's what the smart, serious people listen to but to me it’s boring and in love with itself. Everyone loves This American Life but it’s a little slow for me, oh, and not that interesting. Does anyone out there know of interesting talk radio, apart from the love of my life, Adam Carolla? Can you guide me?
At the store last night I saw on the new issue of Martha Stewart that it has the best homemade bread recipe ever. Ever! I was tempted but I didn’t even look because I knew it would just hurt my self-esteem. Martha is just too perfect. I love it when Amy Sedaris is on her show because she always wears the cutest dresses and aprons and she takes the piss out of Martha ever so charmingly. e.g., Martha: “No, I don’t live alone! I have my dogs and cats and canaries.” Amy: “Oh, THOSE people.”
Judah and I were looking at Amy Sedaris’s “I Like You” book to get ideas for his birthday party and I read him her party game ideas. “It says here Gypsy is a game where you blindfold all the kids, drive them out to the middle of nowhere, then take of the blindfolds and the first one to find their way home wins.” Judah said “Ummm…no. I don’t think we should play that game.”
