Tina Fey Is a Bubble Person

A few weeks ago, NBC ran the 30 Rock episode called "The Bubble." For those of you who missed it, let me explain what a bubble person is. A bubble person is an attractive person who gets whatever they want in life. Thus, they live in a bubble, protected from harsh reality and the horrors of the world. In the episode, Liz Lemon finds out that the guy she is dating is a bubble person. She discovers that he is bad at everything and doesn't even know it. No one has the heart to tell him the truth...until Liz, that is. He gets special treatment all the time: no waiting in lines, getting free food and avoiding parking tickets. On the other hand, Liz is treated horribly wherever she goes. It was a pretty funny episode, but that is beside the point.

The point is--Tina Fey is a bubble person. It is obvious that she doesn't think so. It shows on 30 Rock and her movies. I bring this up only because it came up again in last Thursday's episode. In the cold open, Liz goes with Jack to get an engagement ring for Eliza. The salesperson looks at Liz and says "you sure?" That would never ever happen! Then in the end when Eliza is in a jealous rage because of Liz and Jack's "weird" relationship, Liz says "Come on. Look at me," while turning sideways to show her pot belly. What was that? Her self-deprecation is beginning to get ridiculous. But I guess it's part of her charm. It's what makes her so likable and relatable. But she is also cute as hell and ridiculously talented. She is pretty much awesome! She really is a bubble person whether she wants to admit it or not.
