So I read Bossypants recently and I have to say, I loved it! I’ve been missing Liz Lemon since 30 Rock has been on its extended hiatus, and Bossypants was the perfect dose of Tina Fey. I loved her quirky, self-deprecating tone of voice. Really, it’s like watching Liz Lemon’s life, but in a much more toned-down, realistic way. (Can you tell that I love that she has gone on to do exactly what she wants to do in a vaguely autobiographical way? And that 30 Rock has stayed successful, despite what she might write about fearing that each season would be their last?)
I think that I can’t exactly call it a memoir or a strict autobiography when she gives so much more than that–advice, tidbits about history, a behind the scenes look at SNL. Of course, it’s complete with lots of funniness. (And I’m always impressed with people who manage to be truly funny.)
Seriously, go read this book and revel in Tina Fey’s funniness and her endearing messages:
“Obviously, as an adult I realize this girl-on-girl sabotage is the third worst kind of female behavior, right behind saying “like” all the time and leaving your baby in a dumpster. I’m proud to say I would never sabotage a fellow female like that now. Not even if Christina Applegate and I were both up for the same part as Vince Vaughn’s mother in a big-budget comedy called Beer Guys.” (page 53)
Message received: stop saying like all the time! And now I’m off to find something new to read.
(Also, I confess that I don’t really know what the difference between tags and categories on wordpress is. Consider this both tagged and categorized.)
