i have been so bad about blogging lately, but i've been busy! easter weekend j was here then that monday mom came down for the week and just left today.  instead of doing all the homework that i have today i decided to get a pedicure, buy tina fey's new book bossypants, go to target, go to panera, come home, read bossypants and finish it.  reading this book is just what i needed. i laughed so hard i was crying and had to put the book down so i could get a drink of water.  she is so hilarious. this is my favorite part of the book.  tina is talking about how the image of women is always dictated by celebrities and how Beyonce & Jennifer Lopez paved the way for embracing a full figured women, this is what she says...

"And from that day foward, women embraced their diversity and realized that all shapes and sizes are beautiful. Ah ha ha. No. I'm totally messing with you.  All Beyonce and JLo have done is add to the laundry list of attributes women must have to qualify as beautiful.  Now every girl is expected to have:  Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits.  The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know was made by Russian scientist to sabotage our athletes.  Everyone else is struggling."

i love this, because it's so true and so hilarious.  this book is essentially a bunch of essays tina has written about different situations that shes been a part of or important people in her life.  it truly is hilarious and definitely a book most people can read in a day.  although i do read freakishly fast, and having my kindle that automatically downloads any book i want doesn't help. (i do suggest people get a kindle, you will never want to read a "real" book again)  anyways i should probably get back to writing my other fake blog for a writing project (shout out to nancy if you read this) there's a really good chance ill blog again tonight.
