Making Peace With Zooey Deschanel

My relationship with Zooey Deschanel is troubled.  I loved her in Failure to Launch, but can’t abide 500 Days of Summer.  Not to mention she’s always copying my style:  look at the similarities here.  This is my headshot from 2009:

And here is a photo of Ms. Deschanel, found on Pinterest:


But something magical happened at work the other day, something I cannot explain! 

Through the window, I can see the ads at the subway entrance at 59th & Lex.  Advertizing is dangerous, yo.  Repeated exposure to ads for My Generation, the ABC drama that only lasted two episodes, made me completely addicted to the series.  It also led me to Master Chef, so who am I to question the universe.

Anyway, I was dragging through the workday, when I saw an ad for the new season of New Girl!  Which I started watching last season ironically, then enjoying ironically, then genuinely enjoying.

And she came to me, like an angel, with her big bangs and baby blues:  Zooey Deschanel.  A beacon of cheerfulness and good will.  Smiling and beaming her perky rays of cupcake feminism through the window to me –

and I became changed.  I started smiling more, dancing more, being nicer to customers.  I have seen the gospel of Zooey Deschanel and it was good.

Consider me reformed.

  1. oh i love zoey! and i really did like her in 500 days of summer. i know weird…it took me awhile to get over the ending…but now it's one of my favorite. its real…it isn't just some fairytale.

    • I think I need to watch that movie again, for a fresh perspective. You know, now that I'm not harboring resentment against Zooey for stealing my sweet style. Who can blame her?

  2. Haha that is too funny, you really do resemble her! Especially in that one photo! I personally love 500 Days of Summer, but it took a couple times of watching it to get over the disappointment of how depressing it turned out to be. I just love Zooey and Joseph together. 🙂
