the best friends you’ll never have

Archive for November, 2011

Is this even a contest? Can you actually have an answer other than “Patrick Thomas” and not catch flack for it? He left and doesn’t send child support, does that weird thing where he secretly visits Kristy and won’t let her tell anyone, and doesn’t invite his youngest son to his wedding to Zoey, leading [...]

My favorite parent in the BSC is Stacey’s mom, Maureen Spencer. I know that Stacey’s parents don’t seem to be the most well-liked in the BSC-iverse. Ed gets it worse than Maureen, though–workaholic dad who tries to buy Stacey’s love, hiding Samantha from Stacey while getting mad at Stacey for hiding Robert from him, etc.–but [...]

As I said in my last post, I don’t really care for the baby-sitting parts. That’s probably the best thing about Friends Forever: baby-sitting fades into the background, and the Sitters’ relationships with their friends, families, and love interests take center stage. I think, though, that if I had to go with the sitting charges [...]

I am not a fan of the sitting chapters, really. I liked them as a kid, because I was reading about people my age, but now I find them kind of tedious. Maybe it’s because I know that baby-sitting is not as fun as they make it out to be. I think, though, that my [...]

Again, this one presents a sort of challenge. What does “least favorite” mean in this case? Is it the character you least like to read about, who bores you? Or is it the person you find most repulsive, whom you’d surely dislike if you knew them in real life? One of the jerkiest characters in [...]

This question isn’t hard in terms of choosing a character, but I’m having trouble discerning what “minor” really means here. Does “minor” simply mean “non-BSC member”? Or is limited to those who truly just didn’t show up much in series, MAYBE played a major role in one book, but was mostly limited to the background? [...]

Play along in the original post, on your own blog, or in the comments. One thing about me is that there is nothing that fills me with more trepidation and fear than the idea of “roughing it.” I want a bed. I want a toilet. I want a bathtub. My stepmom was my sister’s girl [...]

Here is the original thread. On the whole, I quite like the Super Specials. Growing up, summer, for me, was all about the release of the new Super Special. They feature some fabulous things, such as Vacation Boyfriends, cameo appearances by Jack Donaghy’s mother, and Mallory deciding that all of her problems in life can [...]

Original post here, you can play along there, in the comments, or on your own blog. Kristy and the Missing Child has always been my least favorite, and I don’t even know why. It is probably the one that I have reread the least, and not just because I always seem to lose it for [...]

Play along here, or in the comments, or in your own blog (leave me a link!). This one is easy. Kristy Thomas, Dog Trainer. GOD. This book is boring AND a bummer. You get that girl Deb, who never comes up again, I don’t think, and she is just so angry about getting glaucoma. And [...]
