"Frank: 'What about you? Is there someone else?' Kathleen: 'No. No, but... but there's the dream of someone else'" -- You've Got Mail (1998)

How to be Smarter: If you enjoyed Bossypants as much as I did, then this Authors@Google video with Tina Fey is very enjoyable. How to be Prettier: I love the mixed-metal, sleek but quirky vibe of these earrings. (Which I'm wearing as I type this).

How to be (less) Awkward: When you are throwing confetti, throw up in the air (like you are putting up an umbrella) so the confetti rains down, not out (like you are throwing a softball) because that way it can get in people's eyes.
