OMG there are so many good ones here. Aaghhh I can’t choooosee.  I had to cut Daria. She’s a little too high school me and not enough aspirational me.  I replaced her with Rhoda because I have fond memories of watching Rhoda reruns with my mom.  Uuugh this is so hard.  Do I choose the groundbreakers like Lucy or Murphy Brown, or the face of women today like Leslie Knope and Liz Lemon.  This may be more painful to me than MMM.

I had to let go of Liz Lemon and Annie from community which about made me want to cry.  But Liz, bless her, is just not a badass.  And Annie, compared to the other women on the show, isn’t badass enough to get my leading lady vote.  But it was hard.  SO HARD.  Especially Annie, who I secretly (or not so secretly anymore, I guess…) want to run away and elope with so we can live happily and crazily ever after.
