Who are you. Who who, who who?

Today, as you can see, I'm Sideshow Bob and Mr. Mom (less the facial hair and stink shirt. no, wait, you can add the stink shirt back in). Ideally? Claire Huxtable. Smart, gorgeous, sharp-witted, loaded. Typically? Probably Diane Keaton in Baby Boom (before she got her shit together) or Deborah from Everyone Loves Raymond (the in-laws factor). As for not-mom type people, I'd love to be a grown-up version of Natale Portman's character in Beautiful Girls. How about you?

Ideally? Janeane Garofolo, effortlessly cool, whip smart and funny as hell.

Realistically? More like Brittney Murphy's character in Clueless.

Good question. I have no idea who I am.

I wanna be Marge Simpson. Seriously. Big blue hair, nice bod, green dress that never gets dirty and patient as I'll get out. And the fact that her problems are solved in 22 minutes is also appealing.

Oooh, but having HOMER as a hubby? No. I'd much rather be Lisa. Except for the fact that she's perpetually a kid. And what an awful age to be stuck at! <--Here's my tangent. No more coffee for me.

I want to be Samantha in Bewitched. Smart, attractive, and who couldn't use a little witchcraft now and then? It would have to be with the first Darrin, though...the second one was kind of dorky.

Um, Tink? I already have Homer as a hubby. I'm used to it.

Arabella, in my mind you will always be Cher from Moonstruck.

I thought about Marge, but I'm not down with the blue beehive. I don't think I'd like to be animated, either. Having to wait for some guy to draw your every move. Seems a little stifling.

Why Sideshow Bob? Are you going to walk into a rake and frame Krusty for robbery?

I would like to be Batgirl, purple leotard, high boots, motorcycle; but I'm probably a lot more Monica from Friends (hangs head in shame).

My kids say that I remind them of the mother in "Malcolm in the Middle". That's truer than anyone knows. I guess it's all the yelling. Holly Hunter in "Home for the Holidays" because a gathering of family is sometimes a recipe for disaster. Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally" only not as controlling or organized. I would like to be as beautiful as Kiera Knightly in "Love, Actually" ,but I'd stand a better chance of getting cast as Emma Thompson. Most days, I'm Joan Cusack in "Grosse Point Blank"...ordering several hundred rounds of sub-sonic over the phone using profane language and then switching over to the other line to offer a recipe for chicken soup.

Ha! Wrdgrl - that reminds me of Jennifer Jason Leigh's character in Short Cuts. Doing phone porn while cooking kids' dinners and changing diapers.

Mrs.H - just the hair.

I'd like to be any version of Natalie State was a great flick.

Nice banner by the way. Got to learn....

Hmmm. Phone porn. I could make money AND not have to wear pantyhose to an office job. I'm going to have to camp on that idea. JK!

I am sure I could do better if I thought about this more, but right now I'm thinking I'd like to be a cross between Samantha (Molly Ringwald's character) from Sixteen Candles -- cynical and cool, and I love the red hair; and Marisa Tomei's character from My Cousin Vinny -- completely comfortable in her own skin, and simultaneously sexy and funny.

Good question!

p.s., forgot the other part -- in terms of who I am like, probably the main character from the old TV show Freaks and Geeks. She reminds me of me.

Morticia Addams - the TV version, not Anjelica Huston. I was in total love with her as a kid. I actually identified with them as a family because my parents were "hippy artist radicals" in a working class neighborhood in Indiana (um, so not, but in comparison we were considered pretty out there. Half my friends were forbidden to play at our house). I was also in love with Jeannie (as in I Dream Of) but I don't want to be her, just want the bottle boudoir. I really don't know who I am like in reality, maybe Alexis Carrington.
