(Newser) – Tina Fey talks about many things in her interview with Laura Brown for Harper’s Bazaar—her “Halloween wig”-like hair, her “Tootsie”-like glasses—but the most important news? The resurrection of her Sarah Palin impersonation. “I feel like I've probably not worn that wig for the last time. At some point, it will come out of the closet,” she says, marveling over the way her impression “had some strange weight to it. It was weird. I'm not a pundit.”

Fey also waxes eloquent on her typical day (“Work, come home, play, kid bounce, work again, go to bed.”), her thoughts on exercise (“Yoga classes go on 80 or 90 minutes,” she says, and “you will still die.”), and her upcoming projects—a humor book “full of incredibly angry ranting” and Date Night with Steve Carell, which will allow her to “officially put on my résumé, 'Special skills: stands next to funny person.'”
