Bossypants

I'm reading Tina Fey's books "Bossypants".
It's actually a mistake, because I thought I was buying a book about my cat. My cat's name is Fifi Fancypants. I thought maybe since he was becoming super famous (to everyone that passes by the patio door and sees him lounging in the sun) that maybe he had decided to drop his first name.....and just be Fancypants....and since he's SUCH a control freak he became Bossypants.

But, I was wrong about that, and instead I am reading about Tina Fey's life from her point of view and it is entirely amusing.
There are many parts that are somewhat familiar but there is one part that is way too familiar. She was quoting a conversation with her husband:
"Remember when we saw Titanic how mad I was at Kate Winslet when she climbed out of the lifeboat and back onto the ship? I think she encumbered Leonardo DiCaprio. If she had gone on the lifeboat, then he could have had that piece of wood she was floating on and they both would have survived. I would never do that to you."

While I suppose some might accuse me of copyright infringement for quoting that from Ms. Fey's book, I am here to tell you that it is not copyright infringement because that is almost verbatim a conversation I had back in 1999 with my than husband.

I am certainly not here to accuse Tina Fey of theft, but I would like to say to all that read this, your car might also be bugged by SNL writers. Consider yourself warned.
