30 Days of Books - Day 25

Things that are depressing: getting your annual student debt update in the post. Ugh... I REALLY don't understand how interest-free student debt can increase by $330 when I've been paying it off through my tax all year. And of course, the documentation on the tax office website makes ABSOLUTELY no sense. As a result, I have a killer headache.

Anyway, books! Books are far more exciting than tax...

Day 25 - A character you can relate to the most

It's not original and it's pretty embarrassing. But there's only one character that springs to mind here.

Yes, Bridget Jones. I may not smoke like a chimney or drink like a fish, but I certainly like to freak out over tiny and completely pointless things (as I'm sure Sara will attest!). I often say the wrong thing, and I'm quick to judge. I swear too much, and I can't stand being the only single one among all the Smug Marrieds that are increasingly popping up around me. I'm more than a little obsessed with the BBC Pride and Prejudice, and - to quote the film version - I'll always be just a little bit fat. But hey - it all worked out okay for Bridget!

At least I've never shown my arse on national television or turned up at a party in a bunny costume or put eyeshadow on instead of blush...

  1. Ha ha I certainly can vouch for the overreacting about pointless things! How many emails have I sent that say, "calm down your housemate hasn't been in a car crash; she's half an hour late so she's probably gone to the shops or the cinema"? Answer: about a squillion bazillion.

    Funnily enough when I read the title of this post I didn't immediately think of BJ which is odd considering that was my nickname at university (apparently I was the most likely to be drinking wine in my pjs singing All By Myself! Ruuuuude but probably fair!) I thought of Elinor Dashwood but then you do keep telling me that I have 'Doormat' stamped across my forehead! I think I need to be getting back to being more like Bridget :)

    Good choice and not remotely embarrassing! We have to believe there's a Mark Darcy out there for all of us or what's the point!?!

  2. I definitely know where you're coming from with the student loans. I feel like I should have made some progress by now.

  3. Without being fundamentally the same as Bridget Jones, I can relate to a lot of things about her (which I guess is why it was such a successful book - EVERYONE can relate)!

    I have worn a bunny outfit to a party (on purpose), occasionally wear big undies, am also 'a little bit fat', and act like a complete dork :-D

  4. Bridge appeals to the slightly unkempt neurotic in all of us - but she still gets the guy (which is why we love her).

  5. I have toddled over from Science, Spouses & Silliness. :D - I love this 30 Days of Books thing.

  6. @Sara - you DEFINITELY need to get back to being Bridget over Elinor Dashwood!!!
    @Kathy - right? Soooo depressing...
    @Kat - good point!!
    @Elle - glad there's a little bit of neurotic in all of us, not just me! ;)
    @Anide - thanks for stopping by!


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
