Second Annual Bestie Day!

Well, it’s the most wonderful time of year again… the time of year when all the streets are a flutter with good cheer and merriment, and… oh, so much merriment. That’s right, pals, you guessed it: it is BESTIE DAY!!!

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “What? Bestie Day has come around already? Where can I find a brand new picture of a baby ‘OG goth’ Panda? How am I going to reserve that private room in the American Girl store (I wonder if my Samantha doll has an in with the hostess)?, Do I really have to give (my bestie) my lucky lotto numbers AGAIN?”

Well folks, you’re in luck, because I have a brand new list of weird suggestions for how to use this day to appreciate your beloved bestie!

1. MAKE HER FEEL GLAMOROUS: You know what I mean. That’s right: CHANGE HER WIKIPEDIA PAGE. I don’t mean drastically, just subtly and in a positive way. Like, mention that she dated Johnny Depp or that she’s fluent in Portugese or that she was born in Vienna. It doesn’t have to be real, it just has to be awesome.

2. POST PRETTY PICTURES: Post a picture of a Reality Bites-era Winona Ryder, or Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface and tag it on Facebook as your bestie. She will feel SO happy when she gets compliments on her doily dress and her cute new boyfriend played by Ethan Hawke, or her cool blond bangs and relationship with acting legend Al Pacino.

3. LET HER KNOW YOU CARE: Make her initials in pancakes. Yum. Who doesn’t love personalized pancakes? Delicious and dedicated. These don’t travel well, so you will probably want to invite your bestie over to yours, or better yet, bring the batter to her house and surprise her in the early a.m.!

4. GET YOUR HUG ON: Put on your favorite jam(z) and give your bestie a big hug. Or, if she’s weird about that stuff, give her a really super aggressive high five. Nothing says love and friendship like slapping palms so hard it stings.

5. LET HER PICK OUT YOUR OUTFIT: Warning: If your bestie ever tried to kill small animals growing up, I suggest you skip this one. However, if you feel certain that your bestie would score below a 25 on the sociopath test, then I feel it’s safe to tell her, “The sky’s the limit! Dress me as you will!” Remember, polite society requires that you do wear clothes in public, so be prepared to have a few perameters just so you can avoid being arrested. Nothing ruins Bestie Day like a trip to prison. Wah wah.

I hope you all have the merriest, most festive and best Bestie Day yet. And if you really want to show your bestie you care, you can also send her a totally awesome e-card made especially for HelloGiggles by American Greetings! This is helpful particularly if you have a long distance bestie, but really any bestie would love it!

    Aw, I LOVE this! That ecard is sure to be a hit with my long distance bestie. Thanks, Zooey! By the way, I just recently got my bangs back. You don’t get much better than freshly cut bangs, for sure.

  • Kelsey Cook

    I love you Zoeey! I wish you werre my bestie!

  • Megan Miolla

    Awwww i love this its sooo cute! I have known my bestie for 19 years.. and im only going to be 20! I have know her all my life and i trust her with my life all the way. We tell eachother everything and do everything together. I couldnt imagine my life with out her!

  • Chelsey Headrick

    “Nothing says love and friendship like slapping palms so hard it stings.” Amazing.

  • Lauren Anderson

    I need a bestie by December 7th. :(

    • Jacqi Puoci

      we can all be besties together

    • Cassandra Amador

      me too :(

  • Nadya N Carnahan

    hey zooey! random question: how often do you cut your bangs? and do you do it or do you get it done at a salon? I have to cut mine like once a week and i usually do them myself which is hit or miss, i either cut them well and i’m like: wow i got this! or i cut them too short or cut too much hair into them then end up wearing my hair like a high school girl from the 50s for a while. which really isn’t so bad and kinda cute.

  • Cassandra Richards

    Best holiday ever.

  • Erika Turner

    I’m participating this year!! I’ve got my Thank You (for being a bestie) cards all ready along with a few small gifts. I’m going to write in my 3 favorite things about each bestie and perhaps the lyrics to the famed Golden Girls Theme song. I’m very excited!

  • Hernandez Diaz

  • Alycia Lourim

  • Jen Anderson

    Love this! I just posted it on the FB walls of my BFFs! It’s always nice to let the awesome people in your life know how much they mean to you! :)

  • Amy Smudrick

    Yay for bestie day! I think this is my second favorite right behind my anniversary! I’m going to give my besties home made gifts and cards <3 and since I'm a hair dresser I might do some hair cuts too! To the girl with the question on the bangs (Nadya)- if you will pull your bangs together (i like to use either a semi-circle parting for people who part their hair on the sides or a v shaped parting if you like to part it down the middle) and loosely cut your bangs a little longer than you think you should. Remember- less is more! You can always cut a larger section or cut them shorter, but once it's cut, you've got to wait for it to grow out :-) I know I'm not Zooey, but I hope that helped! Much love to you my fellow Zooey fan friends and happy besties day eve!
