vocational trades

I don't read that often. I know, I KNOW, I was an English major. I should just devour books. I should talk only of the great poets and critical theories. But I like television.

I do, however, every once in a while find a book that I literally can't put down. I ignore everything else in life. It's happened a few times in the last year, with The Help and Elna Baker's book, the title of which I can never remember. I'm like one of those people who never eats sweets except on special occasions and ends up eating the entire birthday cake.

This is my latest binge:

I bought Bossypants Saturday afternoon and completed the book Saturday night. I also just ate an entire Cafe Rio salad, so obviously moderation is a principle I have yet to master. I love Tina Fey. I loved this book. There is some reason-king's-speech-was-rated-R type language (and then some), so this is not a recommendation. Just an admission that I have problems with pacing and should probably get professional help.


  1. this is going to be the first thing I read when I get home. I have been DYING to read it. I mean, it pains me to wait this long.

    but I'm going to get to it. and all the harry potter books. I'm going to read all those again too. it's going to be a good summer.


Don't be shy.
