As I mentioned, I bought that SoulPancake book and it's definitely full of great ideas and inspiration, but I went a little book crazy and bought a few others, as well... So, since things have been a bit hectic and the only real time I've had to read has been in bed at night, I started this:
I adore David Sedaris. I've read all of his other books, and somehow missed this one. I went ahead and purchased this along with his newest work Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk.
I usually tear through David's books, so I'll give you an update as soon as I'm finished. I've only read the first chapter so far about David getting a job in his early 30's as a Macy's Christmas elf. I laughed uncontrollably through most of it. Thank god Dan's a deep sleeper. :)
If you're feeling at all low due to the holiday season, I highly recommend any of his books. They'll quickly and magically turn your mood around.
