A Small Ode to Kristen Bell

I try not to get too enamored by certain public figures. But sometimes, it's difficult not to. There's a little pantheon in my heart for a handful of celebrity-type people, and while I may not gush about them all the time, the love is always there, no matter how many bad movies or TV shows they make.

Lately, I have been reminded of my love for the delightful Kristen Bell. It could be because I'm in the midst of a Veronica Mars Season 1 rewatch, or because I got sucked into viewing all her (hilarious and charming) appearances on the Craig Ferguson show on YouTube. Regardless, the point remains: Kristen Bell Is Awesome.

Let's examine her IMDb trivia page for some evidence:

1. Says she was a vegan in high school, but had to give it up because of her love of cheese.
2. Broke both her wrists playing hockey.
3. Has dessert after every meal, even breakfast.
4. When she was 3 years old, announced to her parents that she was changing her name to "Smurfette."
5. Helped deliver two babies while doing volunteer work in Brazil.
6. Has a motorcycle license.

How do you dispute the awesomeness of those facts?! And combined with the public appearances in which she is charming, genuine, articulate, and quick-witted? The erstwhile Veronica Mars has a permanent slot in the People Who Are Awesome pantheon. I salute you, Kristen Bell. Keep up the awesome. Because even though you have a permanent place in the group, there's no need to slack off.
