Her book, Yes Please, is great. I listened to the audiobook, which added a lot to the experience for me
I have some interests similar to your girlfriend and this is on my list! http://www.amazon.com/Yes-Please-Amy-Poehler/dp/0062268341
Something I want
Something I need
Something to wear and
Something to read
This something to watch
will make me laugh,
And this will be music to my ears…
But what I want most, my dear friends, is to ease sadness and tears.
For your sister: you could get a Lush gift set with different bath bombs and lotions they have tons of pre- packaged Christmas gifts. Otherwise you could make like a spa kit? Include some lotions, nail polish, and some slippers. She would also probably appreciate a good book, you could get a fun memoir that almost everyone will like. A couple of good ones are (Mindy Kaling's)[http://www.amazon.com/Everyone-Hanging-Without-Other-Concerns/dp/0307886271], (Tina Fey's)[http://www.amazon.com/Bossypants-Tina-Fey/dp/0316056898/ref=pd_sim_b_2?ie=UTF8&amp;refRID=1DKE9VHSE47JT5861QM7], and (Amy Poehler's)[http://www.amazon.com/Yes-Please-Amy-Poehler/dp/0062268341/ref=pd_sim_b_1?ie=UTF8&amp;refRID=14XX5H3BTB60TZ13GJST] Another really fun book is Humans of New York which is on sale right now. Pinch Provisions offers some really cute emergency kits [http://www.pinchprovisions.com/] Maybe she'd like a perfume set or a cute mug with a starbucks gift card or some tea. You could also make a college kit for her; include advil, 5-hour energy, some candy, a starbucks/dominos gift card, tide-to-go pen, purell, first-aid kit, some nice pens.
For you parents you could get them tickets to a Comedy Club or Theater, or even just tickets to the movies and a nice dinner. Another possibility with movies is to make a little gift basket; include your favorite movie or one you think they would enjoy and then some popcorn and various candy [http://www.grannastreasures.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/movie-night-gift-basket.jpg]. I'm not sure if your parents would enjoy it but a spa day? They could get a couples massage and just relax. Hope some of these ideas help!
Hello, I read one of your sections of your new book, Yes Please about parents and it reminds me of my relationship between me and my parents. My questions are:
With only my phone on me, I'm just going to list out some of the non-fiction I've enjoyed on my commute recently.
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory - Caitlin Doughty Great reading for the morbidly inclined.
Silver Screen Fiend: Learning About Life from an Addiction to Film - Patton Oswalt I would only recommend this book for true cinema fans. It's enjoyable if you get the references and are also a procrastinating creative.
God'll Cut You Down: The Tangled Tale of a White Supremacist, a Black Hustler, a Murder, and How I Lost a Year in Mississippi - John Safran sort of reminds me of Jon Ronson. Good true crime, fish out of water stuff.
Yes Please - Amy Poehler Great advice, hilarious. Get it on audiobook.
Carsick - John Waters John waters being John Waters.
Manson - Jeff Guinn A super fascinating breakdown of the 1960s, and the environment that held Manson is much is a biography. I'm really excited to read his new book his writing about Jim Jones and the 1970's.
Currently on Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon, very excited about it.
My husband and I love your work and everything you've done, we both enjoy Parks and Rec twice, once while high and once while... not high. We consider you one of our gay icons in comedy. Loved you on Louie too.
Everybody knows you're really good friends with Tina Fey, any possibility of her appearing in the last season of Parks? Any other collaboration ideas?
While writing this btw I went to amazon and bought "Yes, please" right away. (http://www.amazon.com/Yes-Please-Amy-Poehler/dp/0062268341/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1414608697&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=yes+please)
Why did you write the book if I may ask? Is it your take on Tina's Bossypants?
Thank you again! And if you're around Encino, my husband and I would throw a fab fondue party for you!
