Quote of the Day (Fran Lebowitz, on Household Help)

“I'd love to have a cook because I'm very interested in eating but not in cooking. And I don't like to eat in restaurants where the general public is so often to be found. I would really prefer to eat at home, except there's no food there. I have frequently been observed in other people's kitchens talking to their cooks, in the hope that they will like me so much they will come work for me for free. I don’t really want to do anything for myself at all.”—American humorist Fran Lebowitz, “Money” (interview), Vanity Fair, July 1997, reprinted in Mirth of a Nation: The Best Contemporary Humor, edited by Michael J. Rosen (2000)
