My current girl crush is Amy Poehler. In recent years she’s taken a back seat to my love for Tina Fey. But I’m here to admit I was blind, dear Amy. I first noticed you, along side my love Tina Fey, in the movie Baby Mama. It felt like Good Will Hunting all over again. I was blinded by the obvious and fell for the lead. Like Ben, however, you are proving to be the shining star in my life.
I was blown away when I found your kick-ass website, Smart Girls at the Party, encouraging young women to “change the world by being yourself.” I love seeing pictures of you and your two adorable little boys. You made me laugh on Ellen.
Last night you were nominated for two Emmy awards, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for “Parks and Recreation,” demonstrating the depth of your wit and intelligence before you even arrived. And then you showed up on the red carpet looking smoking HOT. Nice work Amy. What’s not to love?
I have to admit that part of my love for you is my compulsion to pick sides. If a Team Arnett exists as a result of your split, putting an end to nine years of marriage, I shall be throwing eggs at them while wearing my Team Poehler t-shirt. What nerve does he have getting so many spray tans? And sporting a six-pack? That’s where I draw the line. I am in a full-fledged fight with your ex-husband. I don’t care if you say the split is “amicable.” You take the high road. I’ll do your dirty work. That’s just what people in love do.
In case you missed it, last week on Mommyish I was proud of Pink AND Jessica Simpson and the world did not cease its rotation.
I also continued my celebration of National Yoga Month at Skinny Mom:
