On Tina Fey at the Paley Center

Pretty much exactly how I feel about all celebrities. I never want to meet any of them, even if I love them. What would we talk about?

On Deciding on Adoption

@baked bean Every chapter of that book was like a punch to the gut. So good and so important, though.

On The Oscars

I actually didn't like having Michelle Obama announce Best Picture? Like, I love her and everything, but I just don't think the White House should have anything to do with movies. It was weird and uncomfortable.

On Jennnnnniferrrrrr-ahhh!

@iceberg I love on tumblr how the proper use of capslock when excited is to suddENLY TURN IT ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SENTENCE OH MY GOD

Also, spelling out a word - N O P E - and just generally never using punctuation or capitalization.

I feel bad for the letter writers who's questions were wasted on this particular Dude and Lady. Can they get a redo?

On An Imaginary Conversation With My Potential Child When I Tell Her About Hanukkah

@bnna Yessss I feel such a relief every Christmas season. Like, people who celebrate Christmas have to buy an insane amount of presents?? For like, everyone they know?? And also practically kill themselves decorating their house in the hopes of regaining the wonder they felt as a child? It sounds nice but also like a terrible amount of work. I'm perfectly happy getting like one gift and forgetting to light the candles after the first three nights. I'll take Purim instead, thanks.

Charlie has a beard and Marnie is wearing formal shorts. This season can only be better than the last.
