#Quote
1Most people want to ask about my size and how brave I am. I'm like, 'I'm not brave, I'm just not really skinny.'"
2I do not think stress is a legitimate topic of conversation, in public anyway. No one ever wants to hear how stressed out anyone else, because most of the time everyone is stressed out.
3As a kid it's adorable to have a gap in your teeth. But then, because of the shifting in my mouth, I started whistling through it, and as a 32-year-old woman, whistling while you speak in sort of annoying.
4[from Twitter] My heart wants white jeans but my head says no. Kidney says go for it, spleen is ambivalent. Ovaries say no comment, rather rudely actually.
5I want it both ways. David Brent wants to run with the foxes and hunt with the hounds. And I definitely feel that way, too.
6Well, all the guys want to have sex with me all the time. Every day I come to work it's nonstop sexual harassment. They had to have some people from General Electric come down and talk to us about it. There's a lawsuit that's about to happen. But other than that, it's been great. - on being one of only 2 female writers on a staff of 14 for The Office (2005)
