Who Are Your Friends?

Joey: (To Rachel) Look, turning thirty is not that big a deal.
Ross: Oh really? Is that how you felt when you turned thirty?
[Flashback to Joey’s thirtieth birthday]
Joey: Why God, why?! We had a deal. Let the others grow old, not me! –Friends

Today is my birthday…and it means I’m 2 years closer to turning 30. I’m not quite sure how I feel about that yet. I think part of me is excited because I’ve heard the 30s are fabulous. But I’m also a tad depressed because I thought I’d have a lot more done by this point in my life. I suppose that’s natural.

I’m also a little down today because my birthday falls on a weekday (boo). All of my friends live out of town so it’s not likely that I’ll be able to get together with anyone today, and Match has to sleep and then works tonight.

My ideal day today would be to meet up with a few of my fabulous bloggy besties and go out for a lunch date. This would of course include wine, laughing, and girl talk. Doesn’t that sound awesome? Instead I’ve decided to treat myself to a haircut. It’s been SEVEN months so I figure I’m due. Then I may do a little craft shopping, rent a chick flick and veg out. Match is taking me to dinner before he has to work so that’ll be fun. Our real celebration is this weekend when we go rafting! I’m sooo excited for that.

Meanwhile, I am missing my friends a bit today. So what better than to play the Who Are Your Friends game over at  Gigi’s World.

As you already know, I’ve got two friends nicknamed after Friends characters.

Monica & Chandler

I’m missing them big time. They’re so far away in Scotland. Sniff. They are just like Mon and Chan on Friends.

As for the rest of the cast, I think Tahoe Girl would make a perfect Phoebe. She already does a lot of silly singing and goofiness.

I don’t have a lady’s man friend, so there’s no Joey or his two pizzas sadly. We also don’t have a Rachel or a Ross. No one in my group of friends breaks up and then gets back together constantly. Thank god for that!

I’m a total Monica myself when it comes to being clean. I have also been known to do a lot of singing and dancing and making up weird songs, so I channel a bit of the Phoebe floopy energy.

Match is no Chandler. He actually hates being the center of attention. He’s actually more like Phoebe’s Mike because he sits back and puts up with my shenanigans.

So my group doesn’t really fit the Friends cast. We’re a lot more like the How I Met Your Mother crew. But I still adore the show and I love nothing more than curl up, turn on the projector bulbs and have Friends marathons and quoting episodes on a daily basis. So what about you? Who are your friends?
