Confession: No matter how old I get, I’ll always be an MTV gal. I feel no shame in watching what I call my “no-guilt pleasure shows.” Have you been watching My Life As Liz, friends? It follows the journey of a former popular high-schooler as she breaks from the mold and discovers her true, beautiful, awesomely-geeky self. She loves comic books, isn’t shy about shunning the mean girls and isn’t afraid to be herself. How awesome is that?
Here are some of my favorite Liz-isms:
*Friends dont let friends wear slankets.
*She’s like a perky blonde Terminator.
*Glitter is like the herpes of arts and crafts.
*meet my uncle Joey, whose idea of fun is pumping lead into an innocent animal and watching the life fate from its eyes.
*”I’m Sweatin like a hooker in church.
*Sometimes, it’s better when things aren’t perfect. At least that way, you know it’s real.
*Well, yeah. What did I expect, right? I guess I just had one of those wishful-thinking moments, where you hope things might be different, even though you know, deep down inside… they’re probably going to be the same.
*Love & rockets…Liz
Did I mention that Liz is 100% my kind of awkward? It’s me. Literally. She couldn’t be more like me even if I starred in a show called My Life As Melissa. And when I saw the episode where she meets her crush’s girlfriend? Well, that just put me over the edge. I won’t lie and say I didn’t consider drowning my sorrows in a bottle of root beer that night, my friends! xoxo
