The appointment of two hilarious and accomplished, fortysomething women to one of the most high-profile hosting gigs in Hollywood is certainly something to celebrate, but so is the prospect of seeing these frequent collaborators onstage together once again.
Their partnership goes back to at least 2001, when Poehler joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live.” By then, Fey had been head writer at the legendary show for two years and had just started appearing in sketches.
Since 2009, their respective sitcoms, “30 Rock” and “Parks and Recreation,” have been staples of NBC’s Thursday-night lineup, where they’ve managed to create new female TV archetypes: Fey as Liz Lemon, the disheveled head writer of a late-night sketch-comedy show, and Poehler as Leslie Knope, an idealistic councilwoman in smalltown Indiana.
They’ve also both leveraged sitcom stardom to become multi-hyphenate writer-producers. Fey recently signed a four-year development deal with Universal Television, while Poehler co-created the animated series “The Mighty B!” and is producing a new pilot “Broad City” — written by and starring female comedians Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer — for Comedy Central. No wonder they’ve both been named to Time Magazine’s most influential list — Fey in 2007 and 2009, Poehler in 2011.

See Mr. Divabetic’s nutrition game, Serve, Taste or Trash! You must decide which one you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
Before you decide to “trash” a veggie for good, why not try to eat it raw? Raw veggies can be more appetizing than their cooked counterparts to people who aren’t crazy about vegetables. The flavors of raw veggies can be milder than those of cooked ones.
