I like my family well enough. We're no Flying Zamboni Motorcycling Family, but we get by. But sometimes I like to imagine slightly famous people as my real family. Here's our family tree thus far:
Mom: JK Rowling
Obviously. Sometimes, if I'm watching a biographical special on her, or an interview, I get teary because I think she's so amazing. I tend to have a heart of ice about these things, but I would definitely cry like a preteen at a Beatles concert if I met her. I tell my real mom that I hope JK adopts me someday. This has gotten to be something I say so often that friends have jumped on the Rowling adoption dream bandwagon. Jo, if you're out there, we're ready to be your dutiful daughters.
Still under review. I'm currently accepting applications.
Older Sister: Felicia Day
Felicia can sing, act, write, and is friends with Joss Whedon. She's an older sister I'd definitely look up to.
Middle Sister: Me
In real life, I'm the youngest, but in Fantasy Family, I put myself here.
Brother: Michael Cera
He's the ultimate adorable awkward teen (see Arrested Development and Juno), which I think would make him the ultimate little brother. Plus in interviews he seems like a genuinely cool person.
Younger Sister: Julia Nunes
She plays the ukulele. She's a youtube star. She's adorable. Welcome to the family, Julia!
Cousins: the Green Brothers
John writes YA novels. Hank runs ecogeek. They videoblog and have inspired a generation of nerdfighters. They'd be pretty awesome to have around during the holidays.
Mostly I think we'd all just have a good time together. And take funny family portraits.
