My New Hero.

Oh my gosh. I love This American Life. I love Ira Glass. This morning, I heard an amazing story by Elna Baker. I LOVE ELNA BAKER! I don't want to give anything away, but it involves her working at FAO Schwarz doing Lee Middleton doll adoptions. It is delightful. You can listen to it here along with a couple other stories.

And this amazing video:

I cannot wait until her book is published this year.

that was SO funny! I enjoyed every second of it. She's hillarious. Who is she?

Oh. My. GOSH! I want her to be my best friend. No, I want YOU to be my best friend for introducing me to her. And my favorite thing wasn't even necessarily how funny it was, but that it was structured almost exactly like a general conference talk (even if the subject matter was different). Right? Brief gospel setup followed by funny allegorical story followed by moral. I love it.
