You should love Amy Poehler
It may sound like I’m stating the obvious, but you really should love Amy Poehler. Not just because her Parks and Recreation character Leslie Knope is just about the most loveable ray of sunshine ever, but the girl behind the character is just as great as well. Funny, smart and incredibly wise, Amy’s the kinda girl you wish you had as a friend during a breakup or bad day at the office. Not only would her wise-cracks followed with a grin cheer you up, but she’s practically a beautiful, blonde Buddha when it comes to giving her advice.
If you ever get the chance to be-friend the funny-gal, then you’re in for a fantastic friendship (and lots of creative nicknames – a la Anne Perkins). And even if you don’t, you can always take solace in her Smart Girls web-series ‘Ask Amy.’ While it may be targeted towards young girls, the wonderfully-worded advice and issues that Amy muses about defy age. Oh and keep an eye out for a cameo by her good friend Paul Rudd.
