Birthday Girl: Tina Fey

Couldn't let today go by without wishing multi-Emmy winner Tina Fey a happy birthday.

Life is good for Fey. Her TV show, 30 Rock, will be back next year for its 6th season and in the meantime, she's expecting her second child. Earlier this year, she released her first autobiographical book Bossypants to much fanfare.

She also became the youngest recipient of the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Here's a snippet of her wonderful speech:
I never dreamed I would receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, mostly because my style is so typically Austrian. I never thought I would even qualify for the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. I mean, Maybe the Nathanial Hawthorne prize for judgmental nature. Or the Judy Blume award for awkward puberty. Or the Harper Lee prize for small bodies of work - but never this. And yet I hope that like Mark Twain, a hundred years from now, people will see my work and think, "Wow, that is actually pretty racist".
Happy Birthday Tina Fey!


  1. Happy birthday indeed! Did you read Bossypants? It's truly a work of comedic genius!

  2. @Jose - Hello! Not yet actually. But that's on top of my summer reading list.


Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
