She was another woman who meant so much to me. When we were doing 30 Rock and we needed to cast Jane Krakowski’s estranged Florida dirtbag mother and I thought, ‘My god, do you think we could get Jan Hooks?’ Because she’s an idol of mine, from the Sweeney Sisters to the Miss Self Esteem Pageant. Just the funniest woman ever. And I was like, ‘Do you we could get her? And the answer was like, ‘Yeah, you can get her.’ She was living in Woodstock. And the phone was not ringing.
We called her and said, ‘Do you want to do this?’ And she was like, ‘OK?’ She was actually a little shy about jumping back into the game. And she came down and she was so funny. We did a scene where Jenna and her mother are reunited and they’ve been estranged, but they decide to sing their duet that they used to sing in pageants when Jenna was a child. And it was a mother and a daughter singing to each other: “Do that to me one more time…” (Laughter) And it was so funny and the crew was so mesmerized. It was all at once the most ridiculous and heartbreaking and beautiful, this weird mother-daughter relationship. And I’m so proud of it.
It made me sad when she passed, and it made me mad at the time how available she was. Jan should have had a bigger career. Jan deserved a big movie career. Certainly as big as Rob Schneider’s (expletive) career. She was a bigger star on SNL.

A few weeks ago, a slew of high school social studies substitute jobs became available for tomorrow, and I picked a teacher whose name I didn’t recognize and whose specific course wasn’t listed.

A few days ago, my sister got her report card, and I peeked at it.

Not only did I pick a geography class (the worst social studies class with the worst kids [freshmen]), I also picked my sister’s geography class.

As much fun as I always think it’ll be to sub in my siblings’ classes, it just ends up being harder for me. For me to get up in front of the class and do what I need to do, I have to be in the ‘substitute mindset,’ and it’s really hard for me to ‘get into character’ when I have a sibling in the front row grinning at/avoiding eye contact (depends on which sibling) with me.

At least that’s one kid I don’t have to worry about though. I’m going to need all the strength I can get to deal with 9th graders all day and cranky library patrons all night (and repeat this with 8th graders on Wednesday).

I’m going to need everyone to wipe the Pumpkin Spice Oreo crumbs off their shirt, go to the store, and buy some Caramel Apple Oreos. Those are definitely the superior cookies.

And you can trust me, because I’ve spent the better part of the last two days doing research.
