The many faces of Tina Fey

Tina Fey was great at Sixth and I this month. As I said on Twitter, she was as you’d expect: smart, hot, funny, and real. Friend Melissa, sitting immediately to my left, could testify to my perma-grin/speechlessness.

What was not as great were my photos. Not one came out well. Digital zoom was never to be trusted, I knew that. But it was all I had. While Melissa had a camera too, hers was an updated version of mine. Same results. What did turn out decently for me, though, were great faces.

Let us name the faces.

First, obviously Lizzing. Then we go to 30 Rock quotes.

“I already have a drink. Do you think he’d buy me mozzarella sticks?”

“I need to do that thing that rich people do where they turn money into more money. Can you teach me how to do that?”

“Anyone I ever dated in high school turned out to be either gay or a girl dressed as a guy to get a journalism scholarship.”

“Kenneth and I had to spend the rest of the afternoon trying to think like Tracy. I ended up eating a swordfish dinner at a strip club and Kenneth grabbed a cop’s gun and shot a blimp.”

“Jack Donaghy is gonna kill me and then he’s gonna kill you and then he’s gonna fold us up in a pizza and eat us.”

“I pretty much just do whatever Oprah tells me to.”

“We have a show tonight. I’ve never missed a show. Not even the time I had that virus they kept saying only raccoons get.”

“We’re all getting hot dogs! What, you think there’s two lines and we’re all in this line? You’re the only genius who got in the other line?”

“Can I share with you my worldview? All of humankind has one thing in common: the sandwich. I believe that all anyone…”

“… really wants in this life is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich.”

  1. Yes! The highlight of the night. I tweeted my hearting at the time but then forgot to mention it here. WUSA seems to have the only quote of it, and it’s partial. Responding to a question about her career vs. life balancing act, she said, “‘take it bird by bird, moment by moment, and you don’t do much else.” There was a definite mention of Lamott’s name that WUSA missed, but pretty close.
