This is an open love letter to the person who is currently the best representation on television of a teenage girl who I remember being/want to hang out with/wanna watch all the time: MAE WHITMAN, who is the awesome Amber Holt on Parenthood (the show you HAVE TO WATCH if you are not already!!!)
First of all:
I can't believe I waited so long to start watching this show.
It's easily the best thing on teevee right now by far..it make sme laugh, and I almost always cry, and after every episode I want to move to Northern Cali real real bad.
It reminds me of My So-Called Life, except you get the points of view of a ton of different characters.
Plus Dax Shepard is maayyyyybeeee my dream man ( I didn't know! Parenthood taught me this!).
Also: Peter Krause!
ALSO ALSO ALSO: MAE WHITMAN
She is the coolest, you guys. And so funny and normally-abnormal. It's so refreshing to see an "alternative" (barf on that word) teenaged character who isn't some weird cliché of what old white guys think is is UP with kids today.
Amber wears mostly black but she isn't like some bad teevee goth and is sorta into vintage-y stuff but not really, sometimes she wears knee socks and brogues or boots and black glasses and red lips and last week she had baby bangs! But she has friends and boys dig her and she sings songs and plays the ukelele is smart and funny and moody and fun.
And Mae was Ann Hog on Arrested Development. I mean, that's just a bonus but still.
WHITE LIGHTNING LOVES YOU, MAE- thanks for ruling.
