dey street books
In her first book, one of our most beloved funny folk delivers a smart, pointed, and ultimately inspirational read. Full of the comedic skill that makes us all love Amy, Yes Please is a rich and varied collection of stories, lists, poetry, photographs, mantras and advice.
I'm 80% sure I have never seen any movie that Amy Poehler was in. I have never seen an episode of Parks and Rec. But she was in my two all time favorite SNL skits, Debbie Downer's first appearance where everyone broke character, and in the same episode when Lindsay Lohan and Kaitlin have a sleepover. So good. Oh wait, I just remembered I saw They Came Together. But I hated it.
Anyway, I decided to listen to Poehler's memoir because I had listened to Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling's books and they both talk about how great she is and since she also reads her book I thought, why not?
There were some funny parts, I loved her 'Birthing Plan'. Loved it! I loved her chapter My Boys. And Patrick Stewart reading her haiku - so good.
I'm going to watch me some Parks and Rec now.
