Hospitality Under the Influence

22 Nov

So yeah my subject is totally copied from Amy Sedaris and her book I like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, whatta bout it? Anyways, I got this book a few years ago and even got the all too generous Amy to sign it for me (CLAIM 2 FAME).

Amy has some gift suggestions for all of you struggling with what to get your liked ones.

Gifts for a Divorced Man Who Works in an Office:

  • An easy to care for terrarium
  • Place mats
  • Frozen Chicken Thighs
  • The Holy Bible
  • Paint Chip Wheel
  • Hangers
  • Oven Mitts
  • Comb

For the Single Girl in Her Mid Forties Living Alone:

  • Pink Toilet Paper
  • Stamps

For a Nun:

  • TV set
  • Suitcase
  • Cheese
  • Soap
  • Sausage Links
  • Shower Caps
  • Raisins

Basically, this is all you need to know for Christmas. Surely you can come up with your own variations on these lists for those in your family who are not divorced men, women in their mid forties (living alone!), or nuns. But this is a good starting place for you. And according to Amy, if you can’t afford a gift, give a compliment (“it’s an easy way to make somebody feel better”).

I Like You!


Here’s my compliment to all  of you PEEL people:

Ya’ll are all sexy, smart, and sassy. Have a great, safe Thanksgiving!
