Tina Fey and Me

In in case you missed it this weekend in the NY Times Style section, check this out:  Tina Fey and Me.  Or I suppose you could read her new book, Bossypants, if you haven’t already, because that’s where the quote I love comes from.  This is the money I’m talking about:

“Of course I’m not supposed to admit that there is triannual torrential sobbing in my office. … But I have friends who stay home with their kids and they also have a triannual sob, so I think we should call it even.”

I had missed it because I was too busy having my own “triannual sob”.  (I’m so glad to know there’s a name for it and that I’m in such good company).  But I’m okay now, thanks.  Dusted myself off, whispered my prayers of gratitude to the powers that be for being in such a privileged position to fall apart about such things, and recommitted myself to doing my best at creating something close to balance.

Blessed is she whose ambivalence is fleeting and does not dwell but makes and does for herself and her own.  The best that she can.  For she shall inherit the earth.

(The Word according to me).

  1. The cry AND your arms are very similar.

    What was that movie where she cried every morning before she got started with her day? It was like her Crying Practice. I like that.
