Fictional Men I Love

First and foremost, I love Mr. Darcy. In all his incarnations. (Especially as portrayed by Colin Firth whom I once met and will forever regret not running up and kissing, the jail sentence would have been worth it.)

It is entirely possible that Jane Austin has ruined all men for me. I am constantly comparing the men in my life to Darcy and they always come up short. And it's really not their faults, how could anyone compare to the
best man ever created?

Tall, dark, handsome, elegant, disdainful, wealthy...and an arrogant jerk. Just my type.

As Elizabeth Bennet said: "We are each of an unsocial, taciturn disposition, unwilling to speak unless we expect to say something that will amaze the whole room."

I absolutely love the following exchange from Sports Night...in fact I'm a bit obsessed with it...I really need to get these DVDs...why do they cancel the witty shows?

Casey McCall: Didn't you used to care about these things?
Dan Rydell: Yes.
Casey McCall: And it wasn't that long ago that you did.
Dan Rydell: No.
Casey McCall: I mean, it was like yesterday.
Dan Rydell: Right.
Casey McCall: Now, when I say "yesterday, " I'm not speaking metaphorically. I mean it was *yesterday*. What happened to your values?
Dan Rydell: I find maintaining them is a lot of work. I take a day off every now and then.
Casey McCall: You take a vacation from doing the right thing?
Dan Rydell: Yeah. I don't loot storefronts or anything, but once in a while, I consider the effort it takes to diligently adhere to a moral compass. I take myself out of the lineup and I rest up for the next game.
Casey McCall: I swear, you could run for Congress and win.

I want to be like Jared from The Pretender.

Then I could try all the things I am interested in without having to make a commitment.

I could be a spy, a heart surgeon, a fighter pilot, a writer, a professor, a spy, a diplomatic courier, a lawyer, a philosopher, a spy...anything at all...

I miss that show...even though just thinking about it makes me insanely jealous.

That's really the only downside to television, it makes you feel bad about you own little life...
