I love Dana Carvey

Okay, if you are looking for an awesome podcast to listen to this week I would highly recommend You Made It Weird Episode 239 with Dana Carvey.  It was so good!  He has so much wisdom to share in such a down-to-earth way.  I would love to hang out with him.

It made me wish Phil Hartman was still alive, I wonder what he would talk about…

A beautiful post from Girl’s Gone Child which includes Norm Macdonald’s touching tweets.

Hilarious Robin Williams helping Matt Damon with his monologue on Jimmy Kimmel

A short interview with ABC News Australia where Robin comments on comedy and addiction

Sweet pictures of Robin with his wife in February of 2014

A great interview he does on Marc Maron’s podcast, WFT

Great pictures and kind words from people who worked with Robin

This clip and this clip of Dead Poet’s Society just brought tears to my eyes.

Thank you for reading!

Hope you have a hilarious weekend!

Doesn’t this comedy festival look amazing?  Some of my favorite comics will be there like Amy Schumer, Louis CK, Aziz Ansari and Jim Gaffigan.  Guys, why aren’t you coming to Phoenix?

We have a swim date planned with an old friend and her family and plan to get the house in order.  What are you up to this weekend?

PS Yesterday I climbed 32 flights of stairs and had 16 active minutes…woohoo!

Did you know that a sixteen year old girl named Sybil Ludington did the same thing Paul Revere did, only rode twice as far?  Continue reading

My Girl Crush

209

Last night I listened to Jeff Garlin’s podcast “By The Way” where he interviews Amy Poehler and I fell in love with her just a little bit more.

I love her humor.  I love that she takes compliments (she just says “Thank you”).  She is humble but confident.  I love that she can be herself and is willing to defend herself if someone criticizes her.  I love that she helped found (or develop?) the Upright Citizens Brigade.  I love that she marries and dates really funny guys.  I love that she performed 8 months pregnant!

What I have learned from stories about her and hearing her talk and, of course, watching her on SNL and Parks and Rec is that she is brave, confident and unapologetic without being self-righteous or obnoxious.  I aspire to this.  I am sure she would poo-poo this but I think she’s a great example to all women and I hope to grow up to be just like her.

And Jeff Garlin’s pretty great too!

How about you, do you have a girl crush?  If so, on who?

Also, Amy Poehler rapping as Sarah Palin.
