Once we were ushered into the studio, we stood in line for about 15 minutes (for those of you SNL fans, it was that notorious backstage hallway they film a lot of skits in). We had people like Andy Samburg and Bill Heder walking past us. Jason Sudeikis was wandering around in KU basketball shorts and a button-down flannel shirt. So funny!
IT. GETS. BETTER.
My brain was trying to compute simultaneously hearing the coolest song ever, seeing some of my favorite SNL cast mates, AND my favorite actress all at the exact same time. Then, it occurred to me- Jennifer Westfeldt has a boyfriend. Who just happens to be VERY VERY VERY FAMOUS RIGHT NOW. I knew he had to be behind me as well, so I took another glance and saw this particular man standing next to her:
To be perfectly honest, to even Justin Timberlake's surprise appearance didn't even phase me when he came out (even the audience didn't know he was coming) - I was on such a sensory overload, that my brain just couldn't compute any more ridiculously awesome celebrity sightings. I did snap out of if for a half of a second to chuckle when Jessica Biel made eye contact and smiled at me as she was leaving the stage after the big "Goodbye, thanks for coming" end piece of the show, since she and I are from the same town and once upon a time she threatened to beat me up freshman year of high school... But that's a different story for a different day! (I know that she didn't actually recognize me in the audience, and was just being friendly to a 'random stranger', but she certainly picked an interesting target!)
My brain is seriously starting to hurt just thinking about all of this, since it was such a sensory overload!!! I'm going to sign off now to grab some food (I can see In N Out from my window! Grilled cheese sandwich from the Secret Menu, here I come!) and then need to catch some sleep (I'm running on nothing but 4 hours of sleep and a ton of Red Bull).
Sweet dreams ladies, can't wait to catch you up on more soon!
