I want to be amazing at you

7 Apr

Last night I started reading Tina Fey’s new memoir.

I only read about 20 pages as I was completely crashing, but it is already laugh-out-loud-funny.  My favorite quote so far is “I want to be amazing at you”.  You should probably read it in context so you giggle every time you say and read it like I do.

From Amazon:


Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.


“You’d be really pretty if you lost weight.” (College Boyfriend, 1990 )

“Tina Fey is an ugly, pear-shaped, overrated troll.” (The Internet )

“Mommy, where are my pretzels?” (Tracy Morgan )


“I hope that’s not really the cover. That’s really going to hurt sales.” (Don Fey, Father of Tina Fey )

“Absolutely delicious!” (A Guy Who Eats Books )

“Totally worth it.” (Trees )

“Do not print this glowing recommendation of Tina Fey’s book until I’ve been dead a hundred years.” (Mark Twain )

“Hilarious and insightful. Laugh-out-loud funny — oh no, a full moon. No! Arrgh! Get away from me! Save yourself!” (A Guy Turning into a Werewolf)


Looking at Amazon also made me excited for these upcoming releases.

    I need to get this Tina Fey book soon. Another friend is reading it now. That Mindy Kaling book will be hilarious, too!
