My Weekend Crush

Jane Lynch is awesome. This is just a fact like gravity and global warming and that if you drop your toast it will always, always, always land butter-side down. She is so funny that no matter where you put her, she will get you a laugh -- be it “The L Word” or “Two and a Half Men” or “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” or all those Christopher Guest movies. She is so good that it’s easy to forget that what she does is actually really hard. It’s hard to swoop in and steal every scene. But she does it and she does it with a wink and a smile and you just know she loves it. In fact, she is so great that you wonder if the casts of the shows she guest stars in ever get nervous. Better be on your toes, folks, Jane is bringing her A-Game.

While she’s known for her deadpan-meets-smarmy genius, I’m licking my chops to see Jane stretch her chops in the new film “Julie & Julia” with Meryl Streep. Meryl will play culinary legend Julia Child and Jane will play her sister. Jane + Meryl + Food = I’ve had dreams that weren’t this good. Also, every time I look at Jane and see that twinkle in her eyes and grin on her face, I just know that if you were ever to get – shall we say – extra special private time with her, damn, that woman would absolutely curl your toes. Like I said, awesome. Happy weekend, all.

Ha! I was just remembering that scene from 40 year old virgin this morning in the shower...when she offers to be Andy's F*&k Buddy...she is a genius! And my favorite line from "Best in Show" about her mother being the nurturer "The heart and the soul which was what my mom did, that was her role, she was there for the unconditional love and it worked for my family, you know... until my mom committed suicide in '81."

I love Jane Lynch, even her commercials are excellent. I think she was in the first Sprint ads with her calling her mom who was babysitting and her mom thinking Jane wanted her to Flour the kids. Damn right she brings her A Game to everything she does.
Jane Lynch For President!

Jane Lynch makes me week at the knees. She has the most amazing eyes and my toes curl at the thought of private time with her *blush*.

She's on my list of Hottie Friday which I haven't gotten around to as yet *sigh*

I had no idea she was in Two and a Half Men! Holland Taylor and Jane Lynch? In one episode? Please tell me my prayers have come true!

Jany Lynch! Oh she makes every TV show better. I loved her role as a horny coach on "The New Adventures of Old Christine"

It's nice to see that an out and open lesbian can have a successful career in Hollyweird.

Go Jane! You rock!

I've been away from the blogosphere for a while, so it's nice to come back to such a worthy weekend crush subject! If you haven't grabbed the Arrested Development DVDs, you really should. Not only is it hysterical in general, but Jane Lynch is featured in a couple of episodes in season 1, and she's ridiculous funny, as usual. The phrase "great redwood of a whore" is used. Need I say more?

Jane Lynch really needs her own show, some sort of variety-Carol Burnett throw back thing.

Oh my.

I just stumbled onto this page and tell myself I should not write anything, but know that it would make Jane laugh if she knew that I did. I was her gf for a while and you are right - she absolutely DOES make your toes curl when you have "special private time" with her. She's exceptional. ;0)

That made me giggle for a good five minutes, hihihihi. Right, I'd better take a very cold shower now :)
