Happy Birthday, Amy Poehler!

It's Amy Poehler's 39th birthday! Time to celebrate her existence. She's hysterically funny, notoriously fearless, and yet displays a certain thoughtfulness in her interviews that you wouldn't expect from someone with such zany characters. She can do impressions, deliver the fake news, play a farting one-legged reality show contestant, and run the parks department of Pawnee, Indiana. She can play both a "Bert" and an "Ernie," and still be hilarious. But I'm pretty sure she'll always be able to make me laugh just by being herself, and well, that's a pretty amazing thing, isn't it?

"I do feel like the improv rules are ways you should live your life. You should say yes when someone offers you something. You should give something back in return. You should listen to what someone’s saying rather than what you want to say. You should respect somebody you’re working with, and you can’t ever bail. Those are life lessons, certainly."
Funny, intelligent, and a good person. This is why she has her own tag here at She-Bloggo. Happy 39th, Amy!
