Be or Be Best Friends With?

I girl crush hard, I'm thinking hoping I'm not the only one. Celebrities, fictional characters, singers, reality tv stars, heck even bloggers. As you all know, Miranda Lambert is everything to me. As I was listening to her (and that other random girl that's singing) new song for the 876th time in a row last night, I sat there thinking how cool M is -- yes I call her M -- for writing that song. The story told is killer, and no matter how good of a girl you are, you feel a twinge of jealousy and desire to be the two girls in the story. 

Boys dream of being their idols. They dream of being Batman, or Superman, or Troy Aikman, or James Bond. I got to thinking, would I rather be or be best friends with some of my girl crushes? Be the leader or be the sidekick along for the ride? I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours! 






Be: As a huge Sex and the City fan, you may be shocked to hear Carrie is most certainly not my favorite character. I think she is a horribly self-centered and self-absorbed person that really treats her friends like crap, then expects the world from them in return. I try to avoid friends like that, like I try to avoid the indoor kiddie playground at the mall. So my vote is BE! (I'll start with Berger please, he had some serious untapped potential, sans post-it.)

Be Best Friends With: I could never, ever maintain the coolness that Mila exudes. I would inevitably screw it up. Plus I wouldn't want to be pregnant right now.

Be: Because, Ryan Reynolds.

BE: Um, hello. Can you imagine being this girl's friend? No. No matter how kind, or loyal, or trusting, or funny she may be.... you would have to stand next to that. She is a freak of nature, you may as well be wearing Harry's invisibility cloak for the rest of your life.

Be Best Friends With:
Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum): Talk about the best partner in crime ever. She has all the makings for a best friend; selfless, loyal, defends what she believes in and up for anything, anytime. She is gorgeous, but not so much where you would feel self-conscious the whole time *cough* Scar Jo *cough*.  Just don't make me go to her house...

Be: Girlfriend seems very aloof to me. She seems like someone that doesn't really like anyone or anything. I'm not sure it would be very rewarding being her friend. But to be her? Cool in your own world, not caring what anyone else thinks. Sure, sign me up.

Be: Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester): As much as I would love to be her friend, I'm not into minding my P's and Q's, walking on eggshells all day every day. One wrong move and you're in hell with Blair playing the roll of the Devil faster than you can say Upper East Side!

So those are some of my girl crushes. Who are yours? And Be or Be Best Friends With? 

Oh, and Miranda doesn't need a poll... Be Best Friends With, duh.

Before this Wednesday comes to a close, I've got Britt taking over from One&20! This isn't actually her first rodeo on VTIM! For her sophomore appearance, Britt has created one a my favorite things in the world, a drinking game! Plus, sounds like we have very similar memorial day weekend plans...


 
hey, hey, guys! i'm britt and i blog over at one&20!
whenever i have a long weekend, i like to snuggle up on the couch for some marathon movie-watching, and this upcoming one is no exception. one of my favorite things to do is watch an entire series (like all of the batman, spider-man, or transformer movies) since i have the time to really jump into the story uninterrupted. yeah, i like boy movies. i'm all about 'em.
my memorial day weekend pick? the lord of the rings trilogy. and if you're anything like me (read: a geek), you absolutely won't need alcohol to make watching lotr the best part of the weekend. but if you're like the rest of the world stuck watching the fellowship of the ring with your nerdy boyfriend or girlfriend in hopes of scoring later on, grab a bottle. this one is for you.
 
take a drink when:
  • the thoroughly british narrator refuses to use contractions when she could've (ha)
  • pippin took ruins a well laid-out plan.
  • the camera closes up on legolas because the appropriate thing to do when you see an attractive man is to take a swig and lust from afar.
take 2 when:
  • gimli's short-man complex surfaces.
  • aragorn shuffles around like a hipster determined to be nothing like his father.
  • frodo gets hurt but somehow makes it out alive (hint: always).
chug it when:
  • you realize you have to read subtitles in a non-foreign film.
  • the camera closes up on an orc. because you won't want to remember you saw one the next day.

  1. I was just watching Meryl Davis and I thought about how much I love her. She just seems so dainty and I just think she is such a positive role model.

    1. Meryl is somehow simultaneously dainty and a total bad-ass. How the heck does she pull that off? Where do I sign up? Is it weird to want to be her AND be best friends with her? lol. But seriously.

  2. This is such a fun post! I feel like I'd choose BE for all of them except Carrie Bradshaw who I want NOTHING to do with :)

  3. Such a cute post! Now to go cry because I will never actually get to be Blake Lively.

  4. hahaha I love the drinking game, the first LOTR puts me to sleep! The others are good though.

    Oh and I really want to be Blair. Or best friends with her. I'll take either.

    ReplyDelete
  5. haha this is great. however you do not want to be lana del ray. please dear god. but blake lively yes i will take be or be best friends with. i like how we both talked about friendships today!

  6. We should see more of these posts! Love it! Although, I don't like Scarlet Johanson at all so she gets no vote and I have no idea who Fionna Gallagher is!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yes, can I please be Blake Lively?!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Where was Jennifer Lawrence in this list??

    1. I KNEW someone would request her... I'm impartial to her (can you believe that?!) I don't dislike her by any means, really cool chick--- nor am I hard core girl crushing. I realize I'm totally in the minority on that!

  9. oh my gosh yes to all of this! i also had no idea who Fiona Gallagher is, should I be watching this show??
    I like Miranda but haven't heard that new song. I do have a hard core girl crush on Carrie though, who I assume is the 'random person' haha. I would not want to be friends with her though, she is far too gorgeous and those legs would make me never ever stand next to her. no.

  10. Jennifer Garner - She just seems so chill and laid back. Be friends with.
    Jessica Biel - Be (Justin Timberlake just saying)

    By the way my mission is to get featured on your blog. It is just so cool lol

    ReplyDelete
  11. OMG to be Blair Waldorf! i cried yeah I know, when the show was done. I mean, just to say it and its get done like her?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Okay I have to defend Lana.. I was at her concert on Monday and she seemed like a total badass. Ya she's kind of a flippant hippie.. but she also gives zero fucks and if there is anything I'd love to possess it's the DGAF gene.

    Also.. I had to google Fiona Gallagher. Do I need to be watching Shameless?

    I die for Blake Lively. DIE.

    You forgot my end all be all because I can't decide if I want to be her or be best friends with her.. I think I'd choose BFF. CHRISTINE TEIGEN. Can't even deal.

  13. Id love to be best friends with Emma Stone I imagine shes pretty freakin awesome!

  14. Words cannot even begin to explain my obsession with mila kunis. Real talk.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've met Mila or well more like tripped over her. She was super cool with it though. I was just like oops so sorry. Of course I really wanted to scream TAKE MAC BACK! I was totally in love with their relationship. As far as girl crushes, I'd have to say Scarlet is high on the list along with Mystique.

  16. A few of mine: Britney Spears, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Emma Stone, Carrie Underwood's legs

  17. i want to be blake lively simple to just have that HAIR.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would love to be Blair, and maybe Kate Bosworth, but only because she dated Alexander Skarsgard!!

    Love me some lotr, and you know what else we could drink to? every time Sean Bean dies in a movie/series, he is just the dying character, always, might have shed a tear or two when Boromir died

  19. LOVED this post! What a great idea :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. OH great post. I would agree with some of those...Blair Waldorf (Be) and Blake Lively (Be). Blake Lively has the best style, hair and Ryan Reynolds. Oh to dream of having him. Definitely my girl crush.

  21. I just want Lana del Reys LIPS and then be besties with the rest of her lol!! If I had to pick a celeb Id def be bests with Mindy Kaling..homegirl is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Lana Del Rey Seems like a total blast to party with. Loved this. I think you should add Ke$ha, thats a girl i would love to be friends with!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a fun post!! I have the biggest girl crush on Blake lively. Her dress at the met ball?? I about died.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love this! I have so many girl crushes! Glad to know I'm not the only one!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Can I pick "neither" for Blake Lively? Not a fan. Everything else I'm opposite of you. And I don't know when it happened, but your new pin it button makes me laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is such an awesome idea. I mean I totally think I would be BFFs with several celebs. Mostly Jennifer Lawrence, Jenn Aniston and Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Julia Roberts and Sandy Bullock. Mila would totally be my BFFL too. ScarJo not so much. I don't really care for her for some reason. Maybe it's because she is THE nut case who let RYAN REYNOLDS go. I'll never understand that one...

    Such a great post!

    ReplyDelete
  27. this is neat. i am a huge sex and the city fan too and really i would want Charollete or Miranda to be my best friend.

    ReplyDelete
  28. love reading who your girl crush are.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm so glad to know I am not alone in the girl crush world. Although most of them could be my daughters, I'm ok with that. Anna Kendrick is my crush lately. I think the 20 something me (hiding inside the 50 y/o me) wishes I was here.
    Good post. Thanks

  30. Carrie Bradshaw over everything. I want to be her, minus the Mr. Big problems.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Such a fun post idea!! I agree with all your choices, especially ScarJo and Blair because being their friend would be terrible. I'd also add Emma Stone on this list as "be best friends with" cause she seems hilarious and down for anything. Oh! And add Mindy Lahiri! In real life I can't remember her name but she's awesome too.

    As for the LOTR drinking game, this is a great idea and much needed for those of us who get dragged into middle earth against our will (did that joke make sense? I was only half listening throughout the entire movie). I'll definitely be playing this the next time I get suckered into a marathon. Thanks for sharing!

  32. You named a lot of my girl crushes. I agree with an above commenter, Ke$ha deserves to be on this list because I would LOVE to be best friends with her. My other girl crush that's off this list is Troian Bellasario. She's perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Very cool post idea. I'd want to be BFFs with Zooey Deschanel. Huge girl crush on her. I'd want to Be Eva Mendes because, have you seen her?!
