the best friends you’ll never have

Today I was struck with a sudden thought. If you didn’t watch The Paper, go and watch the show on the site I just linked and then come back.

OK. Amanda Lorber=Karen Brewer in high school, yes?


edit: for non-USA readers, here’s a link to where you can watch the show.

She’s super-cute though. I love glasses like that.

You’re the coolest, Greer. Now I need the weekend to hurry up so I can have free time to watch this!

I love that show!

I’ve never thought of Amanda as a Karen Brewer type…but now that you mention it, I see it all too clearly.

Yeah, I watched the whole season… and it was only after reading a BSC Snark post about Karen’s Newspaper that made the connection.

Can you tell me what Karen’s favorite word is? It’s something like gigtantisc or something but I can’t remember it for the life of me! Thanks!

Very cute! What color reading glasses do you think she would have? ;)

greer said, May 29th, 2008 at 6:30 pm

She has THREE PAIRS of glasses: those, purple ones, and light blue ones.

Oh god. I always kind of liked Karen and I can’t STAND Amanda. But sadly… I can kind of see it.

Better to be Amanda than Giana, I guess.
