My parents owned a video rental store, and I spent a ridiculously large amount of time pretending that I was absolutely anyone besides the fat little girl with glasses and a huge gap between her teeth.

Louise (Robyn Lively), Teen Witch

I went through a phase where I begged my parents to legally change my name to Kimberly, when they selfishly refused, I promised to only give my kids the coolest names ever, which is when I swore I’d name my daughter Mercedes. Ahem.
