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.
Okay so I listened to this book back in like January and I thought it was okay, but I just looked in my notes and found only problematic things so here we go.
She says, “I was embraced by the gays” when talking about her theater camp I think. She claimed she was Mexican????? She said something along the lines of everyone should try being skinny (WTF???). Another quote: “Provided you don’t give yourself diabetes.” She also used autism as an analogy at some point so um yeah.
