fabulous woman, favorites, glasses, heroes, muses, nostalgic, saw it loved it

my {muses}.

i was in fourth grade, laying on the floor in front of our living room t.v. with my feet resting on the fireplace step. my siblings were all in high school and it was a saturday night. naturally, saturday night live was what we had all gathered to watch. this saturday there were new anchors on weekend update. one was tina fey. one was jimmy fallon.
as i watched that night i was especially delighted to see a funny woman with glasses & confidence receiving all the laughs. i, in that very moment, embraced my corky-nerdiness. as time went on came to simply adore tina fey & amy poehler.

“I like to crack the jokes now and again, but it’s only because I struggle with math.” -Tina Fey.

I want to go on the record and say I have never urinated in public. But the night is still young.”-Amy Poehler.

  1. They have a huge following on the other side of the pond as well! Tina Fey is my all time favourite – have you seen the 30Rock episode where she dates the coffee guy? Could be that you'd have to be 35 to think it's funny, but oh. I laughed so hard I woke up the passenger next to me (flying to NY two weeks ago).

    Oh, your sister's written me a beautiful e-mail, many thanks for introducing me to her blog.

  3. I wish I would have watched or would watch NOW SNL. I never did…I never really have. I've seen skits here and there, but I'm certain I've never sat and watched an entire episode. Interestingly enough, we had a cross country shirt with some SNL quote on the back. I didn't see the skit it came from until years later. 🙂

  5. Very funny ladies, indeed and I totally feel ya, on the strong confident, glasses wearing girl. I'm such a geek, just to my core and I'm finally starting to be okay with that. Now if I could just find a freckled role model thats NOT Lindsey Lohan. 🙂
