One question: Where is my girlfriend, Tina Fey?


#1 (and 2 and 3 and 4) Crush.

29 07 2009

I am a woman who enjoys sleeping with women.  So when I have a crush on someone it’s pretty much always a lady.   So, of course, when I was scanning my Daily Beast daily beastdown this morning I was titillated to come across an post about Fantasy Girl Crushes.

I thought, “Sweet!  Another article featuring pictures of Tina Fey and/or Rachel Maddow!  Holy Sweet Jesus, thank you for loving me!”

I clicked on the link and much to my dismay there were very few pictures and very many words.

How you mislead, Doree Shafrir.  You tease!
Instead of pictures of my beloveds there was a very clever article about what ladycrushes are and how they are useful as motivators and inspirational tools.

What I got from the article was another girlfriend (You brought this on yourself, Doree.).  It also got me thinking about my own ladycrushes.

There is, as you know, Rachel Maddow Ph.D., my love for whom is well documented.  But a picture is worth a thousand words so here are five thousand-two words.

Dreamy city.

Dr. Maddow led me to Ana Marie Cox which…  you know, sounds kind of like facebookbefriending all of your friend’s Facebook friends even if you don’t know them simply because you think that your friend is totally awesome.  Except Rachel Maddow, though my love, is not (yet! I’ve got hope) my friend.  And Ana Marie Cox is totally awesome independent of Dr. Maddow and is a redhead which, let’s just say, is a HUGE point in her favor.

I’ve spoken frequently of my love of all things Tina Fey (especially Tina Fey breaks!).

And recently, I’ve become fully girlcrushed out on Professor Melissa Harris-Lacewell, Ph.D. Ya’ll don’t even know.  She’s a Professor!  She’s friends with my favourite Ph.D. holding Rhodes Scholar.  She writes.  She teaches.  She rocks a fierce bob.  The woman is unstoppable!  I am so totally crushed out on her that it’s all that I can do to not make little hearts around her named using the less-than sign and the number three.

So before this turns totally fan-boy creepy (or anymore fan-boy creepy) I thought I’d let you know about why this is more than me just liking attractive women.

All of these women are smart.  And not just smart like me, smarter than me.  The kind of smart that I aspire to.  Smart like, if there were ever a chance for us to be in school together, I would offer to type up their notes and bang them out a sweet-ass bibliography (do kids still do those these days?) for free, smart.  Smart like, if they had their hands raised I would put mine down and just listen, smart.  I lurve that kind of smart.  It gives me goosebumps.

All of these women are articulate.  Enough cannot be said about how awesome I find a woman who can clearly articulate her points.  Articulation is something that I work at every single day.  I am not great at it.  I look up to these women for their ability to distill complex issues down to their kernel and pop that shit out to me like so much heated corn.  <- Do you see what I mean about not being articulate?

All of these women kick pretty much everyone’s ass in predominately male dominate mediums.  They’re like the Xena of each of field they’re in.

All of these women are unapologetically themselves.  They make their living by being unapologetically themselves.  They change the world by being unapologetically themselves.  I can think of no greater height to aspire to.

(And they’re super hot!)

Who’s your girlcrush?

Oh Captain, my Captain.

This could only be better if Tina Fey (as Sarah Palin) issued an angry response.

Sunday = Tina Fey Break!

26 07 2009

You know, after the week we’ve had I think that what we could all use is a nice relaxing Sunday evening and the chance to kick back, unwind and have a nice prolonged Tina Fey break (featuring Amy Poehler).  You’re welcome.

All I want for Christmas is stuff I can’t afford.

7 12 2008

It is official, the holiday season is upon us and I want you to know that I am currently accepting gifts for Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, Festivus (the holiday for the rest of us) and my favourite holiday of them all (new this year): Because You’re Just So Freaking Awesome BPD day.

Because I know that you’re all clamoring to get me gifts I thought that I’d make it easier for you by compiling a list. Please feel free to leave a comment when you’ve gotten me something so that I can check it off of the list and send you a lovely e-card.

Introducing BPD’s I Want the World. I Want the Whole World (minus the garbage chute) List

  1. To make a sale on my CafePress site.
  2. The Troy Aikman of 10 to 15-years ago as opposed to that panicky suck-ass Tony Romo.
  3. One of Susan Mikula’s pieces.
  4. A beer with my pretend girlfriend, Rachel Maddow, to talk about, among other things, Susan Mikula’s work (but mostly just to stammer at her about how she’s so smart).
  5. An afternoon to follow my one and only true comic genius love Tina Fey, around the set of 30 Rock and laugh at all of her jokes.
  6. The complete recordings, all on vinyl, of Billie Holiday.
  7. A cute little house in Brooklyn.
  8. Nachos.
  9. 2500 shares of Apple, Inc.
  10. The new Barack Obama Commemorative Plate.

So that’s the list so far. I’m always open to suggestions and gift cards.

Starting the week off right.

There is nothing quite like a nice Tina Fey break to send you to bed before beginning a new work week.

I swear, sometimes I feel like Tina Fey has done so much for America she should be relegated to National Treasure status. Like, instead of Mount Rushmore it could be Mount Feymore. Or just a huge pair of freakishly awesome glasses.

Anyhoods, even though it can’t be embedded, here’s a Tina Fey Break for you (but mostly for me).

Not that Amy Poehler is anything to scoff at.

In the words of Quinn’s best friend/tormentor and President of the Fashion Club, Sandi, “Well Well Well.”

I will admit that I am gloating.
Gloating that Ms. Palin was found guilty by the panel of her fellow Alaskans of an abuse of power in firing Walt Monegan.

Of course McCain/Palin has spent the past couple of days sitting and spinning and trying to explain this away. They’ve released their own report, written by their own staff members who just as fair and balanced as Fox News.

They’ve suggested that the report is “half-done and likely half-baked.” (Heh! He wishes!) Palin’s lawyer, Thomas Van Flein has even gone so far as to say that “the Branchflower report won’t be complete because the investigator didn’t interview key witnesses including the governor and her former chief of staff, Mike Tibbles. ‘They didn’t even try to interview the governor. You want to know why she reassigned Monegan, it would be nice to talk to her. They didn’t even try,’ Van Flein said.”

Now, I know that I’ve not gone to law school like (I presume) Mr. Van Flein has, but I would think, just from you know, what I’ve learned from Law & Order, that they did try to interview the governor. That’s what a subpoena is.

As my girlfriend Rachel Maddow would say, LIAR!
(Ah, Rachel Maddow so nervous and CUTE on the Tonight Show!)

Maybe Rachel Maddow can host an episode of SNL that Tina Fey is playing Sarah Palin on and then they can be together. Rachel Maddow and Tina Fey! TOGETHER! ON MY TV!

Both of them with their cutewonderfulsexynerdy glasses, I just.
It’s like. Sometimes when the air. And my head. Mrs. White was right but in the TOTAL opposite way of what I’m feeling here. Because yes! On fire.
I know that you can’t see me but I just wanted you to know that I’ve clasped my hands together in front of my lips, grinned until it began to hurt and then realized that I had to breathe.

The joy that would bring me… is… uhm… there are no words that I feel comfortable sharing here.

They are good words! But private.

Anyhoods, let’s move on to my favourite of the responses to the report.

This one from yesterday:

“It’s a governor’s right and responsibility to make sure that they have the right people in the right place at the right time to best serve the people who hired them, and for me, the people of Alaska, so my cabinet’s got to be the right cabinet for the people of Alaska.”

Oh, Sandi you do try.
