    FSU is mentioned! Well, I doubt she means OUR little FSU but let's just roll with it, shall we?

    I’m asking You, because if I knew, I’d be doing it, Youdammit.


    I really want to read her new book. Can't wait until it hits my library.

    I was wondering what FSU she was referring to, actually. Anyone know?

    I know this is a gush thread, but I could do without this part. Way to blame the victim, Tina.

    May she be Beautiful but not Damaged, for it’s the Damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the Beauty.

    She's talking about pervert radar, not "blaming" the victim. Perverts pick on damaged kids, cause they know they can groom them. If she's blaming anyone, it's the parents of damaged kids.

    that's a charitable way to read it. But a kid who's been 'messed with' by the creepy soccer coach will not read it that way at all.

    Everyone would love to believe that they can distinguish themselves from people who suffer those kinds of predations. She's no different. I just think it's never that simple.

    And when she one day turns on me and calls me a Bitch in front of Hollister, Give me the strength, Lord, to yank her directly into a cab in front of her friends, For I will not have that Shit. I will not have it.
    that part cracked me up

    And I think you are projecting. I don't see any of that in what she said. And I was sexually molested as a child so it's not like I think I'm immune because of my greatness.

    Love it. Reminds me of something Anne Lamott would come up with, slightly more irreverent. I especially like "break the internet forever"

    That was my favorite part. We've all seen it, done it, heard it.

    The Pooh w/FSU logo tatoo was also ... Fla State being the most infamous party school in the States.

    Amazing writer, this Goddess Tina

    This was my favorite part:
    May she play the Drums to the fiery rhythm of her Own Heart with the sinewy strength of her Own Arms, so she need Not Lie With Drummers.

    ^ Mine too, Manleywoman. (and I ain't sayin' nothin' about my own experience with drummers ... )

    Hmm, this Tina Fey has some talent, I think she might have a future in comedy.
