BFF of the Week: Zooey Deschanel

image via

Welcome to the first ever edition of "BFF of the Week!" I'm so excited to write public love letters to my real life BFFs and my hypothetical ones, too. When I was thinking about who should be my first ever BFF, I had the hardest time choosing- I LOVE THEM ALL!. At some point, I decided the first edition of BFFOTW couldn't be a real life BFF because it felt like choosing my favorite child. Sophie's Choice or whatever. So, I decided to pick my dreamiest of dreamy faux BFFs- Zooey Deschanel. So I'd like to welcome you to my open love letter to my my hypothetical BFF, Zooey Deschanel... The Zoo-inator, The Zerminator, The ZZ Dop, or, my favorite- Gooey. (Yes, these are all nicknames that I'm sure no one calls her, but they totes should.)

I don't even actually know where to start with this proclamation of girl love. Why are we HBFFs? (Hypothetical BFFs!) Well, for one she's brilliantly talented and makes me wish I was better at everything in my life, including breathing. But, like, I feel like she'd compliment the shit out of me, too. Like, she's one of those girls who seems super supportive and loving, amirite? You know she'd love the LOLcats decoupage dresser I will one day make. (Why haven't I actually made that yet?) She'd tell me I'm talented, and that it's okay that I'm single- some day the right guy will come along. Buck up, sister. (I feel like she probably uses the word sister in casual conversation.)

You know how there are those people who have such a fabulously amazing life, it's not fair and you want to punch them in the face for it? Well, ZD should be one of those people... but she's not! She does the most endearing things, it's impossible to be anything other than obsessed with her. She RECENTLY had a party at the American Girl doll store. And she's competitive at board games! I mean I don't want to have to be the one to say it, but since no one else is writing this but me, I'll just come out with it: we're kind of similar. Like, she's me if I were WAY awesomer, starred in movies, had fancy shmancy parents, was married to one of the best songwriters of our generation, was super crafty and good at things, had really pretty blue eyes, and actually had any sort of singing ability. So really, we're similar in that we both like American Girl dolls, and get upset while playing Cranium. TWINS, YOU GUYS!

So one day, when we're at an ASP (ADULT SLUMBER PARTY!) together, I'll finally show her this post and be all "Omg I was such a dork it's funny though right because we're best friends now right or like do you never want to talk to me ever again after reading that omg why are you looking at me like that it's like you don't know who I am what do you mean you don't know who I am I THOUGHT WE WERE BEST FRIENDS okay I'll walk myself out the way I came in through the window bye forever." In one breath. Then I'll go to jail forever for breaking and entering. #WORTHIT

Does anyone want to make a band with me called Zooey and the De Chanel's?


  1. Just re-discovered your blog, and the whole time I'm reading bits and pieces I was thinking it reminded me a lot of Zooey and a blog of hers I read now and then. Great choice for the first BFF, I feel like you two are kindred spirits already. :)

    btw, LOVE her too! I would soo join your band! :)
