An Homage to Liz Lemon

You guys. Can I nerd-out for a little bit? Tonight is the series finale of 30 Rock. The SERIES FINALE. I really can't believe it's here. Chris and I love 30 Rock. I've actually been really disappointed in the way they've been wrapping up things lately. Why aren't they finishing the dang show with a full season?! I just don't understand, and it makes me really sad. But then I watch this video to cheer myself up:

Video no longer available.

In my dreams I would be throwing a 30 Rock series finale party tonight, complete with cheese puffs and meatball subs with extra bread. There would be pizza for everyone to shotgun, delicious drinks, and mozzarella sticks if you already had a drink. I would invite all my friends to this Liz Lemon party, and they would all come, because there ain't no party like a Liz Lemon party 'cause a Liz Lemon party is mandatory.

But this is real life, and I don't throw parties on Thursday nights anymore (or ever, really.) Instead, I thought I would put together a little homage to Liz Lemon here on Gathered Heart. I hope you love her as much as I do... otherwise, all the 30 Rock/Liz Lemon quotes I have woven into this post will be pointless. Nerds!

1. I've been in love with Liz's simple pendant necklace since the first season, but never knew exactly what it was. After some googling, I found that Liz wears two Helena Ficora "L" alphabet charms. Find similar (and more budget friendly) ones on Etsy. 2. A classic Liz Lemon plaid shirt: throw a navy or gray cardigan over this baby and you're set. 3. These Finn glasses from Warby Parker should probably be renamed to Liz. Just saying. 4. A traveler's guide to Cleveland, Ohio, so you too can leave to the Cleve. 5. Etsy shop Paper Chat has a ton of 30 Rock-inspired typographic artwork, including this awesome What the What print. 6. Because everyone needs a Suck it Nerds fabric banner. 7. I'm pretty sure Liz would love a Zingerman's cheese of the month club membership. To work on her night cheese, of course. 8. Liz and I share a mutual love of cheese puffs... although I don't thik I could knowingly eat anything flavored with bull semen. I'll take this awesome Sabor De Soledad iPhone case instead.

Will you be watching 30 Rock this evening? Chris and I will be parked on the couch in our pjs, probably sharing a pint of Ben and Jerry's (who are, by the way, announcing a 30 Rock flavor tonight. Fantastic.) If by any chance you've never seen an episode of 30 Rock, all the other seasons are on Netflix. I suggest a marathon.

I've never seen an episode of 30 rock.
Kidding. I'm still watching season one but I would attend your Liz Lemon party.

Sadly I won't be watching the finale tonight because I'm not 'allowed' to watch shows out of order but I will get to it eventually.

EVERYTHING YOU JUST POSTED IS ALL OF MY FAVORITE THINGS EVER. oh... be still my beating heart. i need... i need ALL of this. also can the Liz Lemon party be real?! please oh please?!

Carrie -- I wish Chris wasn't allowed to watch shows! He always happens to catch a new episode of whatever we've started on Netflix and ALWAYS spoils things for me!!

Abby -- Right?! We seriously should throw a party. Because Tina deserves it.

Oh my gosh, I am so behind on the 30 Rock wagon! I'm only half-way through the first season. I adore Tina Fey and I've heard nothing but good things about the show, I can't wait to catch up!

I've somehow never seen this show!! I might need to watch the DVDs someday because everyone raves about it.

Oh Callie! You have to have a marathon right away.... it's such a great show!
