Thursday Thoughts- My Favourite Autobiographies- Female Comedy Edition

Hey guys! It's Lindsay again. I'm back to tel you about my current favourite autobiographies. I have never been a bug reader but as of late< I have really loved reading about comedians. Specifically female comedians. In no particular order,

Bossy Pants

By Tina Fey

For me, being a female comedian is one of the most courageous career choices. To put yourself out there as a comedian in a primarily male dominated industry, and successful is SO inspiring. I mean, I wish I was as funny as the women in this post. Tina Fey is hilarious and SO effing talented. Her way with words both on and off screen is amazing. I know this is an oldie book but its a goodie.

By Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer is extremely hard working, so well spoken, hilarious, talented and beautiful. I loved reading about how damn hard she works, her research behind her hustle and how private she is. One of the things I loved the most about her is that she is extremely involved with anti-gun violence. She is such an advocate for gun safety and I love that about her. 

Yes Please.

By Amy Pohler

When I read this book I felt like I could hear her voice in my head. I loved her vibe during this read. She is just an amazing human, I love her parenting style and her hard working demeanour.

Is everyone Hanging out without me?

By Mindy Kaling

Well if you love The Office as much as I do, you will find that Mindy actually wrote quite a bit of this show. Her writing style is amazing. She is so so SMART. I loved her book beyond measure. I cant wait to read her next one Called "Why not me?" 

Not that kind of girl.

By Lena Dunham

If you love the show "Girls" then you will love Lena. She writes, produces, and stars in this show. Her book is a great indication of her work ethic. She is whitty and talented. Her tragic yet funny approach to her life was refreshing. 

So there you have it. My current fave comedian women and their books. I have also read 4 of Chelsea Handler's books, and one of Ellen Degeneres' books. Next on my list is Mindy Kahling, Rachel Dratch, and Joan Rivers.

Stay Tuned....

Monday Must Knows With Braede from LOVEPIZZA

Hey y'all! Who hasn't been to LOVEPIZZA? You? If you haven't go immediately. I admittedly have only been one time, but I managed to destroy an entire pizza and not even feel bad about it. It's so good. We sent our Monday Must Knows to Braede (who possibly has the coolest spelling of a name ever).

_____________________________________

*Where did the idea of lovepizza start from?*

LOVEPIZZA is our family business that we started about 2 years ago. We love pizza and had always talked about opening our own spot. We wanted to build a pizza restaurant (or two or three) that served amazing pizza, quickly with great service and a brand that really got involved in our community. Pizza is a fun, social food. It’s something that people get excited about which is pretty special.

1. Personal Record of days of dry shampoo?

Hmmmm…. A couple… a few…. I wear my hair in a bun most of the time, so that’s a pretty good hint.

2. Personal Record of shows watched in one sitting? (how many hours? What show?)

That’s a tough one… we don’t watch much tv honestly. But we hit Madmen pretty hard for a while a few years back. I could also watch a lot of hours of Harvey Spector walking across the screen on Suits.

3. Longest time between grocery trips? (for home, not business!)

Probably a week, but I for sure brought pizza home a few times during said week. Sooo….. this is a difficult question.

4. Favourite story your spouse/partner tells about you at parties?

For a while Gavin had a photo of me on his phone after one of my best friends weddings (I was a bridesmaid). I had just taken out about 40 bobby pins and combed out a heavily hair sprayed head of hair (from an updo). There were some fake eyelashes in there somewhere too… for whatever reason that was always a hit in his eyes. I looked like a lion. A very tired lion (but less majestic). I guess that isn’t really a story, but the visual makes up for it.

5. What food do you effing hate? Like if someone fed it to you, you would spit it out on your kid? (obviously we are joking, please do not spit on your children.)

I really hate mustard. And dill pickle chips. I love dill pickle and I LOVE chips… but that combo is just terrible. And also pudding. That might be the worst.

Well that's all for now. Tune in next month for our Next Monday must knows!
