Not sure where Monday went but it is Tuesday again and time for a teaser from the book I’m currently reading:  Bossypants by Tina Fey. 

From the dust jacket:

Before Liz Lemon, before “Weekend Update”, before “Sarah Palin”, Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream:  a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle school gym teacher.  She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both these dreams come true.  At last, Tina Fey’s story can be told.  From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon- from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.

Now for the teaser part:

Photoshop itself is not evil.  Just like Italian salad dressing is not inherently evil, until you rub it all over a desperate young actress and stick her on the cover of Maxim, pretending to pull her panties down.

Comments:

I just started the book this morning on my train commute to work and while I was reading it was a VERY fast read and it feels like I’m having a conversation with the Tina Fey we see on TV or in the movies.  If you like Tina, check this book out, so far it is pretty funny!
