When I watch TV I have a habit of inserting myself into the show. There is always a character that I either see myself as or can relate to, or looks alarmingly like me. I know this is how the writers want it to be, they need to draw people in by making the characters easy to relate to. However, there have been entire seasons of shows that have mirrored my life, or at least in my head they did.
- Jessica from True Blood. This is only because she is my celebrity doppelganger. So much so that my ex was drunkenly convinced that I was a vampire.
- Robin from How I Met Your Mother. One of my exes was a Barney and we happened to have been seeing each other the same season Robin and Barney were together. I also would love to be a news anchor and don’t want kids.
- A mixture of Bree and Lynette from Desperate Housewives. I’m secretly a soccer mom, even though I’d rather be the powerful career woman like Lynette, but I’m also a wine-o control freak like Bree.
- Carrie from Sex and the City. I have had my own Mr. Big and being a sex columnist is my dream job. Although I am not even close to making her style mistakes.
- Deb from Dexter. Curses too much, works too much, often runs from commitment. We are like soul mates.
