Following on from Thursday's post about the guys I wish were real (as in my real-life boyfriend) I decided I should also do a post about the fictional HEROINES I wish were real. The ones I completely believe could be my friend in real life if they jumped out of the tv into my room. (They'd probably be a bit confused about that, but I'd offer them some wine and they'd soon get over the trauma of my messy room.)
So . . . here goes!
Jules Cobb (Cougar Town)
Cougar Town is my new favourite show and I ADORE Courteney Cox's character in it. She's funny, neurotic AND she loves her wine. Just as much as I do. If we were hanging out, I'd need to make sure I had a MASSIVE supply of wine to keep us going, because I think we could get through it fairly quickly...
Elliot Reed (Scrubs)
Everytime I watch Scrubs and Elliot, she nearly always says or does something that makes me think "Oh my god she is (a skinnier, hotter version of) me!" Plus she suffers from verbal diarrhoea the same way I do.
Karen Walker (Will & Grace)
1) She likes her alcohol. 2) I'd like to shrink her down and carry her around in my pocket so she could entertain me all day with her one-liners. (What do you mean, I'm not allowed to do that??? I'd let her drink!)
***"I’m too tired to slap you. Bash your face against my palm."
***"No one in the world would believe you're straight. You fell out of the gay tree, hitting every gay branch on the way down. And you landed on a gay guy... and you did him."
***"I know what guilt is. It's one of those touchy-feely words that people throw around that don't really mean anything... You know, like 'maternal' or 'addiction'"
All she ever wanted was to make people happy and well-dressed. Is that such a bad thing???
Which fictional character(s) would YOU want as a real life friend?
