My 13 Fictional BFF’s

As all of my real life, non-fictional friends will know, I’m a very social person. And I love friends. I love to surround myself with people who are smarter and prettier and just all around better than me. It makes me a better person. It gives me something to aspire to. 5 fictional BFF’s seems mean cause so many fictional friends will get left out. So in honor of Friday the 13th, I will choose 13 BFF’s instead. Seems a more realistic number. Thanks to The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick for the topic!!

I’ve decided not to explain each choice, cause they all really make perfect sense!!

#1– Jim Halpert from The Office

Ok, I admit some of these (1, 4, 5, 7, 9 & 13) were chosen to be fictional BFF’s that eventually turn into boyfriends forever, cause they are wonderful!! But can you blame me!!!

It’s That Time Again…

Today is Ash Wednesday. Which mean the beginning of the Lenten season. For the past 2 years, I have given up the hardest thing for me to give up… Television. And I see no reason to stop this year. When I’ve given up TV in the past, I have found myself more focused, more motivated, more productive. Not only in my regular daily life, but in my spiritual life as well (which.. of course.. is the whole point!) Giving up something you love for someone you love is a bit of a no brainer. And that’s what Lent is for me. Giving up TV for the one who gave his life for mine? Ask me for something hard, why don’t ya.

It may not be particularly hard, but it won’t be a cake walk by any means. Especially when TV is so good these days. Here are 10 reasons that I will miss TV for the next 40 days…

#1 – Downton Abbey

bfd6b56413c15d209e5e3d4be5f9cd78

Oh Lady Grantham, I will miss you and your snappy one liners!

#2 – Arrow

de86acadb1e1d93f916678fbe7ab7f2b

Umm…I forgot what I was talking about!

#3 – Flash

8621c68e41cc9d6e46a11d97dfc92dd2

Check out last Friday’s post (click here) about couples that I am shipping these days. #SnowBarry is definitely in there!

#4 – The Walking Dead

2b5f0530131e98f4b6c1fb0c43b40082

This one is pretty self explanatory! Daryl must live! There is no other option for him!

#5 – Agent Carter

b9a2dcbede4ac858e3e8b63cbe35cc55

This lady is kicking ass and taking names. She also got picked up for a second season, which is excellent news!!

#6 – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

0248b8a4fd8842658bd3a7cb6b0de6c6

Shield has actually been on hiatus since the winter finale (which was a doozy.) But it is returning on March 3rd, which means I will miss out on the mid-season premier and will have to catch up on it first thing after Easter!!

#7 – Revenge

9624369ece82e98f16e90c3341a19112

If I believed in guilty pleasures, then I would definitely consider this one of them.

#8 – The Mindy Project

a1f5824d792b463e5cd3363b057e3fe0

Week to week this show has been getting more and more adorable. And with the big Mindy/ Danny baby news, it promises to be even more interested in the days to come.

#9 – Hart of Dixie

be368f7b9aed668670a78383e2be71e6

Oh no… I forgot what I was talking about again!! Wonder why…

#10 – Netflix

netflix_200x200

Aside from the regularly scheduled program of day to day TV watching, there are the many treasure troves available on Netflix. Re-watching Arrested Development. Starting a new show like House of Cards. Watching movies whenever I want to. All that is going to have to wait till after the celebration of the resurrection of Christ Jesus, Lord and Savior… otherwise knows as Easter, of course!

Until Easter hits, I’m going to be very careful where I look. Spoilers are everywhere.
