agentcolby: Amy Poehler interviewed by Rachel Dratch for Bust Magazine RACHEL DRATCH: Moving on, BUST says they haven’t interviewed you since you had your son, Archie, last year. So what are your favorite and least favorite things about being a mom? AMY POEHLER: My favorite thing… This is so fantastic. My favorite part - the idea that working moms feel compelled to pretend they have guilt,...
While home alone tonight (Steve working late), Ryan was in the bath and I the shower right across from each other. I sometimes get creeped out when home alone and doing something loud, like vaccuuming or showering, that prevents me from hearing much else. But I found comfort in reminding myself that Roscoe would bark if someone came into the house. You can guess what happened next. I can’t...
What's good for the goose
Tonight, at our city’s tree lighting, I held Ryan on my hip with one arm, and Steve and I draped our arms across each other’s backs. Ryan didn’t like how I was holding him and asked that I “use two hands,” the same way we tell him to drink from a cup and other tasks. Then, at the little celebration he got a fireman’s hat after checking out a fire truck. On the...
By request, here is my Thanksgiving work back schedule. When I host, I take off Wednesday, so you’ll see things planned for then.

Hors d’oeuvre –homemade ricotta, pear and honey crostini Dry brined turkey with pear and port glaze (glaze/gravy recipe and roasting method) Brown butter, mushroom, sausage...

November 3 - I’m thankful for pretty nails that make it more fun to type and demo stuff. Team manis were a great way to end the day before we all head to NYC! And really it’s not just my shiny, cherry red nails. I’m so grateful to work with people who are smart, caring and fun, and grateful for a company culture that recognizes how hard we all work with fantastic rewards.
November 2. Today I’m grateful for pep talks. Lots of things swirling around my head, including plenty of self-doubt. Not sure what I’d do without those who keep me grounded, namely Steve, but also amazing coworkers and clients.
