Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later

I had an incredibly busy weekend, Fangirls. I dealt with some serious personal stuff Thursday through Saturday, had an Art Fight Saturday night, and then my anniversary was Sunday. We hadn’t planned anything for the anniversary other than gifts and dinner, and I’m glad, because that meant we got to watch all of the latest Wet Hot American Summer installment.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Fangirls, I love Amy Poehler. I think she’s funny, bright, and beautiful, and turns out she’s a pretty phenomenal writer as well. I picked up Yes Please as a part of my vacation reading. I didn’t get to it until the drive back, but at that point I ate it up. It’s a fun autobiography full of anecdotes from her many improv comedy experiences.

Tina Fey: Bossypants

I recently picked up Tina Fey’s autobiography Bossypants excited to finally read the story of one of my favorite females in her own words. I can happily say it was not a disappointment! Fey was able to accomplish a light funny dialogue with her readers without sounding overly campy, annoying or preachy. Plus, the jokes. All of them.
Published in 2011 I am almost upset with myself that it took me 4 years to read this book. Tina Fey is in my opinion is one of the smartest and funniest women in the business. Fey has a way of being both unbelievably adorable while telling you that she thinks you are an ignorant ass hat, something that I desperately wish I had the ability to pull off. Fey is sarcastic, straight forward and hilarious in her telling of her life and I would recommend this book to anyone with eyes.
