I saw this tag recently over on Kristin’s blog, but it was originally created by Roxanne from An Average Life. I love Friends, and it’s definitely a show that I keep coming back to for nostalgia and comfort reasons – I don’t think that will ever change, although my opinions on each of the characters and their decisions always seems to as I get older! But before I end up just ranting how terrible Ross is, let’s just get on with the tag instead.
It’s Thursday, folks, and you know what that means? It’s time for another Tag Thursday!
*cue reasonable amount of applause and cheering*
And this week’s tag is the “Friends” Book Tag. As Liz and I are finally coming to the end of our Friends rewatch, this seemed an all too timely tag and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join in when I saw it over on Thrice Read last week. This tag was created by Haley of Fangirl Fury so head on over to her blog to show her some love!
Friends is intrinsically part of my personality – there is never a situation in which I will not be reminded of a Friends quote or joke and I learnt a surprising amount of life lessons from this TV show… the main one being that Ross is kind of a dick? And you don’t really realise that until you get older and rewatch the show and suddenly it dawns on you how entitled his relationship with Rachel is. Anyhow, my point is, Chandler is life, Joey is an adorable teddy bear, Monica has the focus and drive I wish I had, Rachel is someone I sorely misjudged when I used to watch this show as a teen so I’m sorry for all the mean thoughts I had about you Rachel you’re wonderful, and Phoebe has a confidence in who she is that I aspire to on a deep level. In the meantime though, let’s just have a look at this tag, shall we?
Rachel: A character whose wardrobe you want to steal
This will surprise precisely no one given my well publicised penchant for coats but… I want (nay, need) Kell’s coat from V.E. Schwab’s A Darker Shade of Magic trilogy. I NEED it, guys, the thirst is real.
(Disclaimer: this is not Kell’s coat but Nick’s joy at this coat would be my joy of Kell’s coat.
Although it must have a light, beige trench in it somewhere, surely, along with a heavier, wool version a la Sherlock. Duh.)
