According to Moviefone, Zooey Deschanel’s (500) Days of Summer character, Summer Roberts, is a total Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
What’s a “Manic Pixie Dream Girl,” you ask? Nathan Rabin, who coined the term, describes the MPDG as a "bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures."
While Summer Roberts is an MPDG to her quirky core, New Girlstar Zooey may be a real-life MPDG... at least judging by her adorkable tweets on topics ranging from her GPS named Judy to Bok Choy. Read on for the best of these MPDG-esque blasts from @ZooeyDeschanel:
When is my predictive text robot going to learn the word "bestie"?
I feel deeply nostalgic when I listen to my voicemail. It's SO ‘90s.
my allergy pill to cups of coffee ratio is WAY off today. WAY OFF you guys.
it's another dogday afternoon you guys. tweet pics of your dogs please. outfits are a bonus.
Do lens flare and fields of flowers make people want to buy perfume?
My Internet is not working and it feels like olden times. I'm sort of Laura Ingalls Wilder but with 3G.
someone please auto-tune the fight from the last episode of real housewives of BH - enormous potential. ENORMOUS.
I named my GPS "Judy"- She a very mercurial sort of lady.
My mom said my GPS sounded like it was trying to seduce me when it gave me directions.
"ONLY 2 dresses left?I guess I have to buy it."-me. I have a very unhealthy co-dependant relationship w/ online shopping. also I'm a sucker.
Last night marked my yearly tradition of putting a lot of effort into a Halloween costume no one can identify.
Bok Choy has to be one of the more difficult vegetables to eat.
When I'm really happy I laugh like Amadeus.
There's a fight between 2 leaf blowers outside my window. Which one will win: the loud one or the other loud one?
