Writer, actress, and crafter extraordinaire Amy Sedaris is a woman of many, many talents. From her cult classic TV show Strangers With Candy to her book on entertaining, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, she makes it seem like there’s nothing she can’t do. We went to her dreamy apartment to make flaming voodoo s’mores (they’re like regular s’mores, except more negativity-cleansing), talk about bunnies and square-dancing outfits, and hear about her rad life.
Hello, you. June’s theme will be LONGING. Unlike more-acute forms of desire like desperation or need, longing is a sweet ache—more pining for something than dying for it. It’s nostalgia, homesickness, boredom, a persistent feeling of lack, dreaming of escape/the future. It’s summer: summer homes & cottages, stuffy summer bedrooms, sun-bleached memories of summers past. The shadow of September that hangs over June. It’s secret hangouts, crushes, unrequited love.
