Lena Dunham's Pre-SNL Week Is Basically Her Dream Come True

Posted: Updated:

Lena Dunham is currently living her dream, as she gets ready to host "Saturday Night Live" tonight, March 8, with musical guest The National.

The "Girls" creator has been open about her obsession with "SNL" and she told Seth Meyers that when she found out she'd be hosting, she "screamed to such a degree that people in my writers room thought somebody had died." She said, "I was obsessed as a teenager. I would stay up every night to watch the reruns on Comedy Central. I had to be in the house every Saturday night by 9 p.m,, which wasn't that hard because I didn't have friends, to lay out all the snacks and make sure I had dominated the TV." (There's a lot more amazing Lena Dunham/"SNL" nerd talk in her interview on "Late Night With Seth Meyers.")

It's almost time for Dunham to take the iconic stage at 30 Rock, but she's been documenting her week in the "SNL" studio all week.

Now, this is a girl pile we'd love to pal around with.

Considering Dunham said being spoofed on "SNL" was "one of the best things that's ever happened to me," here's hoping we'll see more Blerta on tonight's episode.
