Bossypants is hilarious all the way through, but its best parts were Fey giving us a backstage look at her life getting into SNL, working on SNL, creating 30 Rock, and returning to SNL for Sarah Palin impressions. While there is obviously hyperbole in this biographical info, the sense of pride of being a female in comedy is evident, and made me well with pride too. I can't help but admire the woman.

PS I'm also using "yellow hair" instead of "blonde," too. A joke referenced on a recent episode of Parks & Rec when Fey's bff Amy Poehler refers to herself as "yellow-haired"
