I Hear You, Tina, Loud and Clear

Many of you know that I have a mean girl crush on Tina Fey.  On Valentine's Day I wrote a letter to her and I asked everyone to share it so it would hopefully get to Tina.  I whored myself out that day by tweeting it to just about every castmember of "30 Rock" and "SNL" with the hopes that someone would get it to Tina so she would call me and let me take her to lunch.  I still haven't heard from Tina...directly...but I'm no dummy and I'm pretty sure she's trying to contact me and I want her to know:  Message received - loud and clear, Colonel.

I'll fill you in.  I was watching the "Murphy Brown Lied to Us" episode of "30 Rock" the other night and I saw that in the first minute she sent me a clear message that she's been reading the blog and she's been starting to understand me.

I'm a moron and I can't figure out how to embed a video from Hulu so I'll just put the link here.  Watch the first minute of this episode of and you will see Tina's homage to me.  I'll just wait 'til you're done.

Did you see it?  It was right there.  It was so obvious.  OH.  EM.  GEE.  Hellooooo.  She's wearing overalls!  If you've been reading for awhile now, you'll know that overalls are very meaningful to me.  I wore overalls on my first date with the Hubs.  Have you ever really seen overalls on a TV show?  Nope.  This is definitely a message for me.  A message that says, I totally get your love and fascination of overalls, Jen, and I am right there with you.  They are comfortable and perfect for any kind of project.  You are a genius for re-introducing me to them.

Annndddd....did you notice?  She has a baby book with the name "Adolph" circled in it.  I call my daughter "Adolpha" on the blog.  It's not a real name and it would sound entirely made up if she used that name on "30 Rock," so instead she had to use Adolph.  It was a little cryptic, but I got it.  I saw what she was doing there.
"Are you getting it, Jeneral?"

It was so simple to crack her code, don't you think?

Tina is communicating with me!  I think she's still a little nervous to reach out directly, because she's worried I could be a crazy lady.  I don't blame her.  She's got to be careful.  I understand.

So I just want to tell her:  I'm not crazy, Tina, I swear.  I know, I know.  Crazy people always say that, but I mean it.  I don't know if you heard or not, but I'm looking to expand my circle and add another friend or two.  I think you could totally make the cut if you wanted to, y'know...hang.  Or we could just be pen pals, I'm good with that too.  You let me know.  Until then, I'll be watching for more signs.

UPDATE:


Judah AKA Frank from "30 Rock" says "I'm on it."  If Judah will make this happen, he will get my vote for President!

  3. Omg she's totally giving you the Vulcan mind meld! And I love overalls too, I have two maternity ones, long and short. Sure I look like a country bumpkin smuggling a pumpkin but I DON'T CARE.

  7. I have a crush on Tina, as well. I would say that it's a "mean girl crush", as well, but I don't think that applies to me.

    If she does contact you and y'all go to lunch, please, tell her that I love her and if she wasn't married that I would have her babies!

  8. Sure sounds to me like a shout out to you and a personal invitation to hop on a plane to NY and go straight to her house to meet her for drinks and cupcakes (I'm sure you can scale the fence and go right on in if she doesn't answer now that you are BFFs).
    And it is ridiculous the amount and varieties of overalls I wore in the 90's. My favorites were dark brown corduroy. Sa-weeet.

  19. I have a girl crush on Rachel Maddow. I keep thinking every time she has one of her "cocktail moments" that she's communicating with me. I mean...I like vodka.

    What in the hell are you doing wasting your time writing this?!?!?! It's obvious...get your ass on a plane and get over there. A no carb dinner and ALOT of adult beverages with Tina aren't gonna wait forever. Just make sure you wear the overalls so the doorman knows who you are, and doesn't think you're some crazy woman stalker he might have to punch in the throat. Lemme know how it goes! Muah!

    One of my favorite early memories is being swung by the back of my overalls by my dad (like an airplane). :) Although, I didn't wear them much after getting boobs. They just were not flattering...at.all.

    Aw, shucks! I only had an overall skirt. But my kids wore lots of Osh-kosh, because they had grandparents in Wisconsin, does that count?

  32. I went to school with Lutz. His dad was my Pastor for a while. Not that it helps, but I tell everyone I can. Working into casual conversations. Like, "Hey, pass the salt." "Sure, Lutz... oh I'm sorry, I was just thinking about how I went to school with Lutz from 30 Rock".

  34. She is totally communicating with you! If you ever meet her in person, will you ask her to sign my book? I can mail it to you or something.

    (Thanks for linking this up over at #findingthefunny last week!)

  35. I just read this on my phone, and I was sure it said "if you ever meet her in PRISON" and I thought, Gosh, I hope not! I'm happy to link. Thanks for the opportunity.
