Tag Archives: My Mad Fat Diary
I am so glad Nico, who plays Finn on My Mad Fat Diary, said this in an interview:
“I don’t think Finn is too good looking for Rae at all, I want the audience to think that Finn understands Rae and that’s the type of girl he’s looking for and they both get on with each other in the same way and both love each other’s company, and they love music and all that kind of thing.”
I wanted to post this because it fills my heart with so much joy to read this and I want everyone to watch this show and let it all wash over them too. This show is a long time coming and how I wish I could have had this show around when I was a teenager.
It was hard finding a bunch of these in one place online so I’m making a post of the great ones and will continue to add to it:
I’d shag him until there was nothing left. Just a pair of glasses and a damp patch.
I am a body dysmorphic without the dysmorphic. I am a bulimic without the sick. I am fat.
He smelt of boy sweat and CK One. I thought my ovaries were going to explode.
I think I might be about to commit a sex crime.
There is nothing wrong with having a bad day, nothing at all. There is nothing wrong with putting your jamies on and staying in. the world will wait, the world will not combust because you can’t force a smile.
I can’t eat when it feels like someone’s taken a piss on my soul.
I want him to treat me like that little goat from Jurassic park and just. Eat. Me. Whole.
On My Mad Fat Diary Rae took some weird chocolate looking thing out of a wrapper and flicked something off the top of it. Later her mother yelled at her for stealing all the whips so I had to look this up. It’s a Walnut Whip, which is whirl-shaped cone of milk chocolate with a whipped vanilla fondant filling, topped with a half-walnut. Wtf?! Europe has some of the strangest snack foods. I just can’t imagine what would posess someone to create something like this and market it.
I put off watching My Mad Fat Diary for a long time or at least long enough that season 2 is right around the corner (this February). Why did I not watch it? I don’t know, probably because I judged it. Why would I want to watch a show about a sad girl going on and on about being fat, I have my own life for that 😉 But people on tumblr kept recommending it so I finally gave it a try on xmas day and we ended up watching the entire season.
To say we loved it would be a vast understatement, the show is pure genius and utterly loveable. It’s so well-written and clever, as many British shows are. It’s a genuine show that a girl like me growing up who isn’t perfect looking can love and see that they can have more.
There are so many wonderful things about this show, you’ll just have to take my word on this. I love Rae and I love her group of friends, all of them.
Also the music, reminds me of my teenage years so much. Yeah, I’m old, at least compared to most of the viewers of this show.
This scene was just, no words.
I love Rae and her moments with Finn, the chemistry is just palpable. Also they are both just too cute.
So go watch it and I’ll shut up.
