I’m not sure how you spend your Thursday nights, but presumably it’s not plopped down in front of the Tonight Show. At any rate, Tina Fey was on the latest episode and had plenty to reflect upon after revisiting a letter she previously penned to her future self.

"Dear future self, as I am writing this, I am a nerd with no friends but I am hopeful that by the time I grow up and be you, I'll have figured out a way to make people like me, especially my husband and children," Fey's letter reads. "So many questions I want to ask you about the future. I wonder who is president now. Believe in your dreams, especially the one where you're back in your old middle school and the gym teacher is chasing you in slow motion because I'm starting to think that did happen to us."
SNL, an all-robot Jersey Shore update, and a Mitt Romney x prom pun were also mentioned in the letter. A hamburger, amazingly, is also involved. See for yourself up top.
