2012: 1. Bossypants

"Welcome Friend, Congratulations on your purchase of this genuine American-made book."

Bossypants, Tina Fey

Insert obligatory self-flogging about how I haven't blogged in months, and how I am so far behind on 2012 blogging I'll likely never catch up.  Basic reason - two small children; no need for more explanation, given that the only person reading this is me!

But, appropriate segue, I guess, because, Fey's book is, at least in part, about being a comedian, sure, but also about being a woman and a mother and all that jazz.  Anyways, I know that everyone read this book ages ago, when it first came out (and when it comes to it, *I* read it ages ago myself, about January 2nd), but just in case you didn't, do! It's great! It's a breezy read, sure, but Fey is a delight.  The much re-blogged "Mother's Prayer for a Daughter" was probably the highlight (Quote - "And when she one day turns on me and calls me a Bitch in front of Hollister, Give me the strength Lord, to yank her directly in a cab in front of her friends, For I will not have that Shit. I will not have it."), but the whole thing - learning about her childhood, SNL, her struggles with her appearance in Hollywood, the Sarah Palin thing - all of it was great.
