she liked Imaginary Men best of all

I am Liz Lemon


Thank god 30Rock is back, because life is not worth living without a little Tina Fey in it every week.

I love Liz Lemon and her adoration of Sabor de Soledad chips, Slankets, men who smell like frosting, and wanting to go to there.

But now that she’s added having a boyfriend that she only sees sporadically because he’s a pilot (and when she does, she gets to stay in hotels!) has upped my LizLoveQuotient.

Basically when Liz proclaimed of her romantic role models Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten and her frequently absent husband Jeffrey:

Her husband only comes home on the weekends and she spends the rest of her time eating and drinking with her gay friends!

My mother turned to me and said “sounds perfect to you!” Indeed. If I could find a guy who was up for Liz’s “Separate but Intersecting Lifestyles” that would be pretty cool. Weekends at fancy hotels so you didn’t have to remove the plates from your bathroom would be a bonus! (If he was Jason Motherfuckin’ Bourne extra bonus!!)

I wonder if I could get this embroidered on a pillow:

I am a grown woman, I have been doing things my way a long time I don’t like my life stuff mixing with my dude stuff!

Watch The Fabian Strategy here while I go build a shrine to Liz Lemon in my yard.

  1. First of all, I love that you linked to my girl Ina G!!!!

    Second of all, I think that because Tina Fey always credits herself with being a writer first and an actor second, she’s able to tap into a real girl’s mind. That’s why Liz is so relatable because Tina is too. And also, if she can find ME a man who smells like frosting I’d be forever indebted to her! You tapped every important point as to why Liz is awesome!

    Third, I still owe you a pan of Liz Lemon squares 🙂

  2. I also relate to her flaws and all sad clothes,yes two places to live v good arrangement,wish we could afford two abodes eh? she makes me laugh so hard -last night with awful cowboy hat …perfect.

  3. Middle aged woman using the phrase, “dude stuff”. Is that on my morning scavenger hunt? Why, yes it is.
