my lovely sister lent me her copy of bossypants, or as i like to call it: tina fey’s magnum opus. i read it in the airport. and snort/laughed several times- to the chagrin of the man sitting next to me.

my sister has decided upon a new holy trinity. i am in full support of this and consider myself recently converted.

i’m not sure where in the godhead each of these ladies would fall, but in keeping with catholic tradition we could just say they are all as one.

allow me to give a couple of highlights: in response to someone (a male) calling her a cunt:

“NO! You don’t get to call me that. My parents love me and I am not the child of alcoholics who take that shit.”

“[I have] straight Greek eyebrows. They start at the hairline at my temple and, left unchecked, will grow straight across my face and onto yours.”

“Why do I call it ‘yellow’ hair and not ‘blond’ hair? Because I’m pretty sure everyone calls my hair ‘brown’…Yellow hair does have magical powers. You could put a blond wig on a hot-water heater and some dude would try to [have sex] with it.”

i’m telling you ladies, this book is non-stop. borrow it, lend it, or spend lots of money and buy it because tina fey has done more for women in t.v. then any other. and i, for one, am glad her life took the path it did.

after watching tina fey receive the mark twain award, there is really no way i couldn’t write about the lovely jennifer hudson. just, just listen.

i was going to blog about other former american idol-ers, because i watched the cma’s this week, but then i heard miss hudson and there was no way i couldn’t say, fuck yeah lady, sing it! she just sounded phenomenal and looked good too- even though i fear she may have stopped eating.

and just cause beyonce’s in this pic, i had to share

and congrats tina! you are a role model and glass ceiling crasher- thanks for your perseverance and example. love you.
