“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic. Those that are old and familiar. Those that bring up lots of questions. Those that bring you somewhere unexpected. Those that bring you far from where you started. Those that bring you back to life. But the most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you that you love well that’s just fabulous.”
Anyone who knows me knows that I firmly believe that Tina Fey and I share the same brain. Literally. Her sarcastic writing style mixed with her pop cultural references have kept me laughing for almost the past decade, which is why I started salavating like one of Pavlov’s dogs (lost on that reference?

If you haven’t picked it up yet you’re officially un-cool and you probably still shop at Sears so shame on you! Here’s one of my favorite lines from the book so far (one that resulted in me choking on my chicken strip at KFC during my lunch break.):
“While your teens and twenties were about identifying and emphasizing your ‘best features,’ your late thirties and forties are about fighting back decay. You pluck your patchy beard daily. Your big toe may start to turn jauntily inward. Overnight you may grow one long straight white pubic hair. Not that this has happened to me, of course, because every six months I get a very expensive Japanese treatment that turns my pubic hair clear like rice noodles.”
It’s hard to believe Gwen Stefani is over 40-freakin-years old. She’s like a fine bottle of Arbor Mist White Pear Pinot Grigio sitting on the shelf at Wal-Mart…just getting better with age!
