The fictional character you relate to most

    It's simple: Across all media, which made-up character most closely resembles who you are as a person (or how you define yourself, which can be something different)? This character does not have to be and probably is not your favorite character (unless your ego is your most prominent trait).

    I guess DiNozzo from NCIS (tho I don't dress nearly as well). I get the job done, know movies pretty well and try to have a joie de vivre. But I'm probably not as fulfilled as I'd want to be.

    After watching The Wire (5 episodes to go) I'd say McNulty. Great at a job he was born to do but conflicted as a motherfucker in his personal life -- and ALWAYS blurring the lines.

    Do you also lust after your hot Israeli co-worker? :D

    I'm Daria grown up. Wish I could tell her it turns out well.

    Dolores Price, the main character in Wally Lamb's 'She's Come Undone'. First time I ever read a book and thought "I recognize that thinking. I know how that feels".

    A cross between Clint Eastwood's character from "Gran Torino"
    "Get off my lawn."


    And Walter Sobchak. "This is what happens when you meet a stranger in the Alps!"
    "Get me the ringer. Chop! Chop!"

    I assume, then, that you have killed at least a dozen men.

    I once had a co-worker tell me I reminded him of House.

    I had never watched the show, so I said, "What do you mean?"

    His response: "He's an asshole who really knows his stuff."

    I could not argue.
