Tina Fey’s Scar

Perhaps we should have a feature devoted strictly to celebrity scars, or scars in general, because they tend to be pretty interesting. This month’s issue of Vanity Fair is going to be a must-buy for me, since the cover features one of my main would-be lesbian crushes –┬áthe Jesus to women in comedy (his second coming I guess, let’s not forget Gilda Radner), Tina Fey.

The magazine features a lengthy article/interview with Fey and her husband, in which we finally learn the mystery behind the scar just next to her mouth. A mystery that has plagued SNL watchers and Wired geeks alike for the past several years. In case this is the only blog you read and you haven’t gotten the story yet, read on.

I’m Not Gay, But…

So recently I got my hair cut very short. Holly Kiser from Make Me a Supermodel short. Boy short. And since then I have been very conscious of my wardrobe, buying more and more dresses and steering clear of my usual ensemble consisting of jeans, a t-shirt, and my bi-curious Chuck Taylors.

I want to make it very clear to people that, just because I have a liberal and progressive haircut, I’m an old-fashioned girl downtown. And while no one has outrightly assumed I was a lesbian, I always ask myself before leaving the house, “Do I look gay in this?” Not that there’s anything wrong with being gay, nothing whatsoever. I love Ellen, and Jackie from Workout, and Bravo altogether. And my fabulous gay friends, of course, so let’s not make this about that.

For some reason, it’s just a bit off-putting for people to mis-guess your sexual orientation based strictly on appearance. (Excluding that one time in Dublin where Betty and I pretended to be a gay couple so this total frat boy douche would leave us alone.) For a guy or a girl, to be presumed gay when you’re not just seems to be some kind of question of your masculinity or femininity.

And boy, I don’t have to tell you, us straight people have it hard! Ah just kidding. But really, where I was going with this post is, though I am not gay, there’s nothing wrong with having a girl-crush on women that, if you were a lesbian, would totally rock your boat. Here is an abridged list of my girl skeets:

1) Amy Sedaris

Amy Sedaris is my hero. Period. She sets an amazing example for all women, being a successful (and single) female comedian, actress, and homemaker. Tumblecizing on The Colbert Report and refusing to be “sexy,” Amy says you can be raunchily hilarious (“I like the pole and the hole!”) and still go home to your pet rabbit and bake cupcakes. Her book “I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence” is chock of full of fun and crazy recipes, craft ideas, and anecdotes that make me desperately want to be invited to one of her parties. In fact, one of Amy’s craft ideas, gluing googly eyes onto just about anything, accompanied by a picture of a googly-eyed peanut, was the inspiration for the name of this site. And Strangers with Candy is without question among my top favorite TV shows of all time, with a LOL factor of 10/10. I want to be Amy Sedaris when I grow up.

I Love You, Jack Donaghy

I know it’s only barely a week since the season finale, but the few post-hiatus episodes of 30 Rock weren’t enough to sate my desire for the brilliant wackiness 30 Rock embodies. I was browsing Hulu for clips, and I wanted to share what is possibly one of the best moments of the first season:
