New Idol: Tina Fey

I just devoured Tina Fey's book "Bossypants" and literally laughed the entire time I read it.  She has a unique and hilarious storytelling ability that rivals many others.  But through the whole book, all I kept thinking is "I want to hang out with this lady!".

Favorite quotes from the book: (which I was reading, through laughter tears to my hubby last night while he looked at me like a nut)

From "There's a drunk Midget in my House" - (in reference to parenting, breast feeding, etc.) - "Lesson learned?  When people say, "You really, really must" do something, it means you don't have to.  No one ever says, "You really, really must deliver the baby during labor."  When it's true, it doesn't need to be said." (242)

From "Sarah, Oprah, and Captain Hook, or How to Succeed by Sort of Looking Like Someone" - (in reference to juggling a crazy life and being a mom) - "On September 3, 2008, then governor Palin accepted the vice presidential nomination.  Around this same time, Oprah formally agreed to be on 30 Rock, and it was determined that my daughter's third birthday party would have a Peter Pan theme.  Each of these events was equally important in my life." (202)

A good "general mantra" to live by - "Do your thing and don't care if they like it." (145)
