Who's Your Fantasy Galentine's Day Crew?

As you’re no doubt aware, February 14th is Valentine’s Day. Whether that makes you smile or gag, the whole day is of secondary importance here. Because if Sunday is Valentine’s Day, that means that Saturday is Galentine’s Day! What’s Galentine’s Day, you ask?

If you’re somehow unaware of this holiday, as coined by the great Leslie Knope,


So here’s the question: if you could assemble your own personal Galentine’s Dream Team, who would you choose to eat frittatas with? Let’s say five women (like your freebie list of friendship), real or fictional, from history, movies, books, TV, or wherever else you want. Boys can play too, of course, but remember that on this day it’s uteruses before duderuses. Here’s mine, just to kick things off.

Lennon Parham & Jessica St. Clair
Can I count these two as one? No? Fine. I’ll invite them both because they’re two of the funniest women on television, and their existing BFFdom is strong enough to cut through the usual awkward icebreaking of a brunch with strangers.

Mary Bailey
Because she’s a kickass, funny, smart as hell lady, and I would REALLY love to see what she looks like after a couple Bloody Marys.

Because she is EVERYTHING. (P.S. Please bring BB-8.)

Leslie Knope
Or Amy Poehler. Either one. But it just wouldn’t feel right to celebrate without her there.

Who’s on your list?
