that manic pixie dream girls exist doesn’t mean you can just make up words

Sayeth fark dot com commenter “InmanRoshi”:

[Zooey Deschanel] never was cool. She was just marketed in a way that reminded losers of the one pretty girl in high school who didn’t openly point and laugh at them.

I’d say there’s a better than average chance that this statement is actually true. However, that doesn’t change the fact that I like much of her acting work, enjoyed both She & Him records, and find myself occasionally smitten for short periods (largely because I was that loser in high school).

However, I kind of want to stab all those people who use the word “adorkable” to describe her. Come to think of it, I kind of want to stab everyone who uses that portmanteau at all; it’s just awkward.
