How I'm Like Bridget Jones

When most people talk about Bridget Jones Diary, it's usually in the context of pathetic single women.

I, however, empathize with Bridget on a totally different level. She's awkward as hell, which is endearing and frustrating to be. I bring this up because of the below photo taken this past weekend in Ventura:

Obviously, people have been having fun with this on Facebook. Ha ha, Tara's looking stooooopid...again. It just reminds me of Bridget's line from the movie: You needn't go out of your way...I already feel like an idiot most of the time anyway...

Even though there are elements of the ridiculous about me, I don't need to be reminded of how much of an idiot I am. No, really...I GET IT.

/rant done.

Wow. It's roller derby. It's doing something that 99% of people see, and would love to do themselves, but never will have the stones to do. For that matter, most of them will never do anything that will ever end in having a bad-ass action shot taken.

I mean, I'm not going to hit you with a lot of platitudes about them being jealous or whatever. I just think you're doing something awesome that was caught on film, and that makes you pretty far from an idiot.

Bridget Jones is my fave movie period.

Mark Darcy: "I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... "

That sums up my life. And I'd do Colin Firth in a micro second.

In addition to what Randall and Darz said, YOU ALSO HAVE NO CELLULITE.
That makes you doubly amazing.
So shuddup..:)
