It’s everything you have heard it is. This book, put simply (yet thoughtfully), rocks.
Between the gyno passing out stories and the foray into the birth of SNL incarnation of Sarah Palin, I fell in love with this lady named Tina…and her sassy voice.
She’s my new hero. She was already rocking my world with 30 Rock, but she just made it official. I’m in love. And I’ll reiterate the title of this post and the feeling in my heart, you can boss me around anytime, Tina Fey.
I listened to the audio book on the ride home from a recent trip to Philly with a car full of like-minded females. I find that the audience your viewing/listening to media really matters. And it was also double the pleasure-double the fun double listening experience because she is originally from Pennsylvania and she talked about the very highway we were driving on. (deh nuh nuh nuh, deh nuh nuh nuh) That’s my Twilight word translation…what a doozy to type out. It took about 5 minutes to figure out the logistics. And I still don’t think it’s right.
I knew this book was going to be a hit before I bought it though. Mr. M had just gotten back from a man trip and they (7 dudes) listened to it on the drive back from California and they all loved it. That spoke volumes to me and made the $21.95 download (gulp) easy(-ier) to click on.
By the end of the audio book I felt inspired. I felt happy. I felt like yes, we (as women & as people) can have it all. We can have family AND a career. And despite what they say, we can be happy.
I don’t want to say too much, and give away some of the funnest parts of the book. But just trust me on this one. Bossy Pants, all the cool kids are downloading it. Come join the fun (nerdy) club.
Yours ready for Tina Fey to boss me around,
