friday five!

happy friday all! so glad this week is over. what are you up to this weekend? I have a wedding & I'm hoping to tackle #2 on my list (I've also really been intrigued by making my own cheese lately but thats for another weekend). in honor of the return of 30 rock, here are my friday five:

5 girls I want to ariel (aka steal their essence and wear as a seashell around my neck ala ursula the sea witch....aka the 5 famous ladies I totally adore):
(hey look! its #2 on my list! image from here)

1. Tina Fey ('nuff said. So psyched 3o Rock is back! Anyone else jazzed by how many Barefoot Contessa references were on the show last night? I love when two things I love overlap. Like when that detective from Law & Order married Bobby Flay)
2. Amy Poehler (I am beyond bummed I have to wait longer for Parks & Rec to come back! I need my Ansari/Poehler fix)
3. Amy Sedaris (how could you NOT love her? She has a new book coming out in November and it may be the only book I have strongly wanted to preorder)
4. Drew Barrymore (she can make a zillion bad movies (and she sorta has) and I will still love her)
5. Keri Russell (loved her in Waitress, hoping Running Wilde will stay on the air.also, I love Will Arnett despite him tricking me into seeing Lets Go to Prison)

(other contenders who didn't make the top 5 cut: all the female actresses from Arrested Development, Zooey Deschanel (I feel like when someone uses the term "cool girl" it should just be implied Zooey is on the list), Neko Case & Jenny Lewis (wrote about them the other week, don't want to get redundant), Maggie Gyllenhaal (she oozes cool. also, I was sad when she died in Batman), female authors I like (like Sloane Crosley)...and so on)


  1. Funny. All the women I want to be are prettier, funnier, and more talented women who I resemble.

    Tina Fey, Penelope Cruz (okay, that's a stretch, but c'mon, I totally want to be her), Rachel Weisz...

    You know, curvy brunettes with 'tude and charm.

  2. sarah- yes! i love rachel weisz too!
