Jul 18 2014 - 1:34pm

We've got a thing for geek girls on television [1], but our ultimate badass, tech-savvy TV crush is none other than private investigator Veronica Mars [2] — and we're not alone! Not only was the Veronica Mars movie funded through Kickstarter [3], but it broke records — just proof that we all love a heroine who's not afraid to let her geek flag fly.

With an introduction to the movie at last year's Comic-Con [4], we knew that Veronica would hold a place in our hearts forever. Why? Because with her smarts, sass, and gadget skills, she inspires us to be the very best marshmallows [5] we can be. And with Kristen Bell [6], who plays Veronica, celebrating a birthday today [7], all the more reason to embrace our love for her, right?
