Bossypants

Things I learned from Tina Fey:

  • “Do your thing and don’t care if they like it.”
  • “Don’t waste your energy trying to educate or change opinions; go over, under, through.”
  • “When people say, “You really, really must” do something, it means you don’t really have to. No one ever says, “You really, really must deliver the baby during labor.” When it’s true, it doesn’t need to be said.”
  • “When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way.”

And a whole thing on cruises:

  • Cruises are for people who are afraid of flying.
  • The entertainment staff are in charge of running the life raft in the event of an emergency.
  • Those staff have guns and can shoot people who freak out on said life rafts.

Now back to the show

Yesterday was a nice little snowy day. I listened to Tina Fey’s Bossypants while playing Plants vs Zombies 2. I’d been having an overthinking moment as of late and Tina helped me out of it. And it helps to know the overthinking bit is quite common and maybe sometimes a touch of neurotic is okay.

Then we ate out at a local Indian joint for dinner. Nothing spectacular to report back, just the usual goodness of enjoying a heavy spicy food on a cold autumn’s night. I think it’s ridiculous that it’s still fall in this 20-30 degree weather but when it’s not windy, it’s good to get bundled up for a bit and go out to enjoy the brisk air. I just want there to be food at the end of it all.
