I took to heart her advice that women in the workplace should "cry sparingly" because it terrifies everyone. Hahahaha. Also, what exactly is a colonial lady outfit? I know what a pioneer outfit is, I grew up in Colorado reading Laura Ingalls Wilder, but colonial lady? I'm envisioning Felicity from the America Girls Dolls. Except her clothes rocked.
It was also poignant to me that people kept asking her if it was hard to be the boss. Um - no? Why would it be . . . ? Do you ask men that question? Also, from experience wrangling other intelligent, creative, spastic adults into coherent teams that meet deadlines, I can vouch that I have never gotten to march around swinging my arms and chanting. I wish. Although, actually, that would be kind of Leni Riefenstahl Triumph of the Will so probably best never to go down that road.
Re: the scar - "I'm not interested in acting out a TV movie with you where you befriend a girl with a scar. (I assume this would be on Lifetime and also include cancer and sexual abuse, because as far as I can tell, that's a rule for getting on Lifetime). An Oscar-y Spielburg movie where I play a mean German with a scar? Yes."
Tina Fey - not a victim.
Growing Up and Liking It
"Shin fur." Lol. I had to start shaving my armpits in fifth grade after Kayla Feeney felt the need to point it out. Not a very nice girl, but perhaps she's gotten better. My mother refused to buy me pads when I got my period and suggested using a tampon. Come to think of it, WTF Mom? I should mention this to her. Perhaps I can leverage it into something . . . *Mr. Burns finger thing.* I love that Jeanne Fey mom left the "How Shall I Tell My Daughter" pamphlet in the Modess kit. Hahahaha.
