Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

It's late in the afternoon and it's almost Friday. You deserve a break. Take one while watching Jerri Blank humorist Amy Sedaris shove hot dogs onto a rake.

Sedaris is known for her acting roles in television shows like Strangers with Candy as much as she's known for being author David Sedaris's sister. But she's also an author herself.

Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People! -- upon which the video above is based -- was released in November 2010 after years of Sedaris slyly showing off her "crafty" side in books like I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and brownie-baking demonstrations at places like the 2006 Texas Book Festival.

And because I already know you're going to want more of the wonderful wackiness seen above, here's a video of Amy Sedaris making "potato ships" while wearing fake nails and gingham panties.

You're welcome.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
