5 Fandom Friday: Characters I Would Invite To My Thanksgiving Feast

Screen-Shot-2014-09-25-at-7.48.24-AM

Happy Friday, my little ponies! Today’s 5 Fandom Friday post is about which fictional characters I’d like to invite to my Thanksgiving feast. When I first saw the theme I thought it would be extremely difficult narrowing it down to just 5 characters, but once I got the metaphorical ball rolling it was actually quite easy! And just for funsies I’m also adding what dish I would have each character bring to my Thanksgiving feast because let’s face it: I can’t cook for shit and if I were to ever host Thanksgiving, you bet your sweet ass it would be a potluck.

1. Liz Lemon from 30 Rock

Liz loves food. I love food. Inviting her to my Thanksgiving feast is a no-brainer! We would talk about food and the kinds that we love most, bond over Star Wars, and talk about how people in general are very annoying. Especially youths.

Om Nom Contribution: Cheese dishes! Mac & Cheese, a cheese platter, and mozzarella sticks because clearly we’re going to have a sleepover afterwards and we’re going to work on our night cheese. I will have lactaid pills in case any of us need them, of course.

2. Leslie Knope from Parks & Recreation

Leslie Knope may be very intense, but she’s super friendly and eager to please. If she were to come to my Thanksgiving feast, we’d probably have great conversation about Harry Potter, women we look up to, and the importance of breakfast food. Plus, she’d help keep the conversation stay positive because Liz and I might go off in negative tangents. And I hope that I will say something that makes her respond with, “Oh, Nina. You beautiful land mermaid.”

Om Nom Contribution: Waffles, syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit, and chocolate chips.

3. Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers

Tina Belcher would be so much fun to have as a guest for Thanksgiving! We would all talk about writing and where we get our inspiration from (she would then go off on a tangent about Jimmy Pesto Jr.’s butt, and then Leslie would argue that her husband has cutest butt in the world, and then I would argue that Welsh Corgis hold the award for Cutest Butt in the World and then they’d all agree with me because I’m totally right), books, and boys (duh). Tina would most likely talk about her latest erotic friend fiction story, and we’d all probably be slightly uncomfortable yet highly amused.

Om Nom Contribution: A huge platter full of burgers from her dad’s restaurant and fries, naturally.

4. Mia Thermopolis from The Princess Diaires

Princess Mia! How could I not invite her? She would be extremely lovely and then let loose a bit after a glass of champagne that her Grandmère had her body guard (who is watching the football game in the other room) bring with him. She would talk about school and princess lessons and Michael Moscovitz, and tell us how hard it is to balance it all, and we’d all be like “Amen, sister!” Then we’d all talk about our favorite “Top 5” things (movies, Star Wars characters (Liz Lemon would be so amused that Princess Mia owns Queen Amidala underwear), places to get sandwiches, and whatnot because Mia likes making lists in her journal, and I like making lists in my head.

Om Nom Contribution: The turkey and pies made with Genovian pears, because Grandmère would insist that because she is a princess and a guest, she should not be subjected to contributing. But Mia will explain that it’s rude to NOT bring something to a potluck, so Grandmère tells her to go ahead and bring the turkey and dessert to show just how great and accomodating Genovians truly are. <– I’m basing this all off the way Grandmère is portrayed in the books, not the movie where she’s sweet and lovely and played by the ever beautiful Julie Andrews.

doctor-who-11th-doctor

5. The 11th Doctor from Doctor Who

Despite the fact that the Doctor spends most of his time in modern-day London when he’s not off exploring far-off lands in the distant past or future, I think he’d be a lovely Thanksgiving guest — particularly the 11th Doctor because of his boyish charm and old man tendencies. Plus I want to see Tina attempt to flirt with him because he would totally be oblivious to her advances. 😀

Om Nom Contribution: Fish Fingers & Custard, of course! And Jammy Dodgers for pre-dinner snackies.

My Thanksgiving feast actually sounds more like a slumber party, but I think that’s okay! Who would you invite to your Thanksgiving feast? Let me know in the comments section!

Cheers,
Nina

out & about

I need to talk to some food about this…

Why yes, that *is* a giant stock of asparagus I’m leaning on.

After class I met up with my friend Caitlin, who was also in the Creative Writing program at SFSU with me! I’ve been missing school like CRAZY. I know I’m taking a Children’s Lit. class at the community college with Jen, who was also in the CW program with me, but it’s not the same. I love seeing Jen all the time, she’s one of mah beeeest frriiiends, but I miss seeing my CW buddies on a weekly basis. I miss reading their stories. I miss talking to them about the good stories and the really bad stories (appletini… oh my god) we had to read for classes. I miss chatting with them before and after class about random shit. I just miss them all in general! So it was soooo nice to hang out with Caitlin, and all we did was talk and talk and talk about our mutual love of Liz Lemon (I swear she’s a mini Liz Lemon/Tina Fey), how Christina Hendricks is the only woman I’d go lesbian for, TV shows we managed to start/or  finish watching over the summer, celebrity crushes (RYAN GOSLING! ZACHARY LEVI!), *NSYNC, Harry Potter, food, adjusting to life back in Stockton after living in the bay for awhile, Disneyland… jeez, what didn’t we talk about?

I made Caitlin take this picture so I could send it to our friend Dana. And see? She’s totes mini Liz!

Frozen yogurt found its way into our conversation after I mentioned that Nubi has Dole Pineapple sorbet which is basically the same exact thing as a Dole Whip from Disneyland. If you’ve never tried a Dole Whip — NAY! — if you’ve never been to Disneyland AND never tried a Dole Whip, you haven’t lived your life to the fullest yet.

Dole Pineapple frozen yogurt makes me feel like I’m at Disneyland.

After I dropped Caitlin off,  my mom gave me a couple of Graham Snackers when I got home. What are Graham Snackers, you might be wondering? Lemme tell you! It’s like an ice cream sandwich, only it consists of graham crackers, grape jelly and peanut butter. My mom and my cousin Cynthia were talking about them over the weekend and I was just so lost. I guess it’s the new thing they serve at school cafeterias. And you know what? I feel like I was robbed. That stuff is hella nummy. Why wasn’t that around when I was in elementary school?!

THESE NEED TO BE MADE AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE.

I suppose I should be thankful that I at least had tater tots. Dammit, now I want tater tots. Or hashbrowns. Jack-in-the-Box has tiny hashbrowns… I think? WHY ARE POTATOES SO AMAZING? <– BRB, I gotta find some food to talk to.

Blurgh.
