Happy Birthday, Tina Fey


On May 18, 1970, an important event occurred in in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania: Elizabeth Stamatina Fey was born. We know her as Tina, or as Liz Lemon on 30 Rock, or as the best Weekend Update anchor in all of Saturday Night Live‘s history, or as one of the sexiest and funniest women ever to grace the planet.

According to her IMDb biography, Fey considered herself a “supernerd” in high school and college. And a few years ago, she told Bust magazine that she considers herself a feminist. And right this minute, I consider supernerdy feminists awesome.

30 Rock has ended its season, so we’re deprived of Fey for a little while. She is hard at work on the film Baby Mama and at, well, being a mama to her baby, Alice.

Best wishes, Tina. May your birthday gifts include several pairs of bi-curious shoes.
