Bill Hader — who is leaving Saturday Night Live after eight years this weekend — on his audition for the show:
I remember getting in the elevator for my audition and there was a guy next to me who had a backpack full of props and wigs and things, and I went, ‘Oh, my God, that guy is so prepared, I have nothing, I have no props.’ And that was Andy Samberg. And Andy Samberg said he was looking at me going, ‘Oh, that guy has no props. He doesn’t need props.’ And that was the first time we met, was in that elevator.

GPOY for someone who had slept less than an hour on my flight today. I’ve been awake for twenty-four hours now.

Sometimes I wish there was a gauge that would indicate how bad I smell before I leave the house. I don’t know if I currently do, but it’d be nice to know.

That’s a remark I get quite a lot when I describe to people that I’m Finnish, which is a race that they don’t see a lot of. Where I’m expecting to hear that remark, but more-than-often don’t, is when I provide resolve by explaining that I’m also half Chinese.
When people ask about my genetic/racial make-up, I tell them foremost that I’m Finnish: I identify with the country more; I have never visited China nor Hong Kong (in comparison to my five trips to Finland, including one month of living there independently); I speak conversational Finnish; and I hold jus sanguinis citizenship there.
Last Friday, at this party held by the organizer of this Hart House Finnish Exchange program at the University of Toronto, I tell the organizer, among others, that I’m Finnish. Often, whenever I do this, the more I elaborate on my Finnish side and its culture, the more curious their eyes become because they still haven’t heard about my other half. Oddly enough, my explanation of Finland garners more “that’s interesting” remarks than the possibility of my parents (my father from China; my mother from a Finnish man and a first-generation Finnish-Canadian woman living in Toronto) cranking out this guy.

He remembers those vanished years. As though looking through a dusty window pane, the past is something he could see, but not touch. And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct.
