Curiosity Loves Company

I'm not the only person interested in the origins of Tina Fey's scar. There are others. I know this. Many of them find their way to this blog, hoping to have their questions answered. Others are like Amberdextrous, a MySpacer, who admits to having the scar obsession. He writes:

"The current chief obsession of my life is Tina Fey's scar. I noticed it the first time I saw her and have been dying to find out what put it there. Unfortunately, my research only tells me that it was a childhood incident that she refuses to discuss."

Then there's some dude on a discussion board related to Tucker Max whose obsession with the scar takes a decidedly prurient tone:

"I wanna lick Tina Fey's scar. A girl with a scar on her face (not acne) has a story to tell. That's hot."

It's nice to know I'm not alone. In terms of interest in the scar, that is. It's not like I want to lick it. Well, under the right... Anyway....

Fey to Shill for Credit Card Company

"Don't leave home without it."

Remember when it was Karl Malden and his gargantuan nose encouraging us to use American Express products? Now that I think about it, I'm not sure he actually did the credit cards ads, he may have just pitched the travelers' checks. Hmmm....

Anyway, AmEx is apparently planning to upgrade in the spokesperson category. A brief entry at reveals that the plastic (that's plastique if you're toting "platinum" status) provider will snag none other than the beautiful, witty and cryptically scarred Tina Fey as a pitch person.

The gossipy column in which the statement appears also spends time talking about Andy Dick's peeing habits and an upcoming Brad Pitt movie. If you're having a celeb-gossip jones, check it out.

Here's the comment pertaining to Tina Fey:

"Watch for Tina Fey in the next series of TV and print ads for American Express."

Short but sweet.

The Tina Fey Scar Detective OWNS Yahoo

"The Detective" is still the #2 guy on the totem pole at Google for those searching with the query "tina fey scar". Google Answers still holds the top spot, even though the page in question has about 1/10th the info about Tina Fey's scar as "The Tina Fey Scar Detective".

Meanwhile, Yahoo has it right. If you decide to search using Yahoo (and apparently there are at least 20 or 30 people who do so), you will get this blog as your #1 result for "Tina Fey Scar".

Hell yeah. "The Detective" owns Yahoo.

Now that I'm under the pressure that can only come from being #1, I better get my caboose on the track, hunting down clues that will finally explain the source of Fey's scar. In between those morsels of important information, I will serve up other Tina Fey news and notes. I don't want you to get bored while I research, after all.

Resource for Online Shoppers

I like the idea of buying stuff online. One reason I make a habit of doing that is because I can experiment with different stuff I probably wouldn't see during my regular shopping ventures. The downside to the whole "buy it with a click of the mouse" thing is the fact that sometimes it can be next to impossible to discern which products in a particular niche are worth a hoot and which ones are complete garbage.

Apparently, I'm not the only person with these concerns, because there's a website out there designed to make the buying/shopping experience easier for folks like me. It's and it embodies a pretty cool concept.

Let's say you're going bald and you'd like to find a cure for your hair loss. You could buy some Rogaine. You could put your trust in Ron Popeil's hair in a can. Maybe one of those highly-touted solutions like provillus is on your list. How are you going to decide? TrustSource lays out all of the options in front of you with full descriptions, user reviews and other data to help you make a smart buy.

It's the same thing if you're looking for cellulite cream. These folks have busted down the whole industry and re-arranged it into easy-to-interpret pieces. Experiencing hot flashes as part of the menopause experience? No problem. TrustSource will give you some direction in finding the right remedy for you.

Online shopping doesn't have to be the equivalent of throwing darts blindfolded. You can get the information you need to make smart buys--organized intuitively and presented smartly. Why take chances when you can find the right stuff the right way the first time, right?

Old Photos of Tina Fey Create Flashbacks

I found a few vintage Tina Fey photos at Unstirred and they spurred vivid flashbacks to the 80s. If you're a Tina watcher, you may have already seen these (if not, she's the anti-fox on the far right), but they're worth a second look because they provide us with a few valuable lessons...
A true "before they were stars"/"while they were average if not slightly below-average looking kids" moment. Thanks to the fine folks at Unstirred for providing it.

Fey Will Hand Over the Hardware

We can all hope Tina Fey wins a few Emmys for "30 Rock", but even if she doesn't, we'll get to see her on stage. Fey wasn't able to wrestle the hosting job away from inevitable disappointment Ryan Seacrest, but she did land a gig as a presenter.

Some teary-eyed Emmy winner will get their trophy from Tina Fey!

According to The Canadian Press, Tina will be a hardware handler along with several other TV notables, including "30 Rock" talent and child-berater Alec Baldwin:

"Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Kyra Sedgwick are among the celebrities added to the list of presenters for the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards. Baldwin and Fey star on NBC's "30 Rock," Colbert is host of "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central, and Sedgwick stars on TNT's "The Closer." Other presenters announced Thursday by executive producer Ken Ehrlich include Marcia Cross, Ellen DeGeneres and Julia Louis-Dreyfus."

Watch Tina Fey in Mean Girls...

You can watch Tina Fey in "Mean Girls".

That probably doesn't shock you. The movie came out forever ago and it's not like it was only in limited release, a mere cult film that might be incredibly hard to find. So, you can watch Tina in "Mean Girls". As they used to say out on the playground, "no duh".

But wait, you can watch JUST Tina Fey in "Mean Girls". Some enterprising YouTubester went through the flick with a fine-toothed comb and excised all of Tina's screen time from the rest of the movie. It's a Tina Fey-only production.

The film doesn't hold up absent the rest of the cast, but for pure, unadulterated Fey... Well, it's definitely that:

A Great Fitness Pal is a great resource for anyone interested in adopting and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Unlike many only health resources, MyFitnessPal is absolutely free. They'll never ask for a credit card and you'll never be strong-armed into making a purchase.

The site delivers, too. Of special interest is their easy-to-use calorie counter. It will tell you about the caloric content of the food you're eating and will also supply you with additional valuable nutritional information. When you combine free tools like that and their bmi calculator, it's easy to see why MyFitness pal gets such a rave review.

If you need a bmr calculator or just want more information about living a healthier life, MyFitnessPal is definitely worth a look.
