What a Character!

I don’t often find myself wishing to be a character from TV–I guess my suspension of disbelief only goes so far most of the time! There are aspects of a lot of characters that I’d love to have—Tami Taylor’s hair, Sydney Bristow’s kick-ass-ness, Veronica Mars’ smarts, Olivia Pope’s wardrobe (to name a few)–but in general, I can’t help but think it’s probably not really worth it to have a TV worthy life.

But if I have to pick one character, I think I’d probably pick Lorelai Gilmore. I know she’s not a perfect character, and she has a lot of issues of her own. But, EVEN with all her nonsense, Lorelai is just…she’s just awesome. She’s a great mom, she’s a great friend, she’s got pretty great hair, she works hard, she pushes for her dreams, and she’s funny, quirky and full of LIFE.

I’m basically NOTHING like Lorelai, but I find her fascinating and utterly compelling. Maybe it’s because she IS so different from me.

I had a hard time coming up with a character I’d want to be. Like you, I admire many of them for various qualities but I wasn’t sure I could narrow it down to just one. Lorelei was actually on my list but I didn’t know if she was 100% my answer. So I plan to think over this one a little longer and come back to it.

I considered Lorelai. She tends to be unlucky in love, which makes me sad. But she’s so stinking strong and independent! And I love that.
