BTT – Other Worlds

Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?

Okay, I was just going to take a pass on BTT this week, but I couldn’t resist this question! In the few minutes between school shopping and registration, housecleaning, cooking dinner and reading, I want to tackle this question. 😀

Any particular worlds from books I would love to live in… There are several books that I’ve read that I can’t help fantasizing about living there. Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and Eragon are some of the more fantastical worlds to live in. I would love to be Stephanie Plum, too. I’d love to have a Grandma Mazzur. And how can you not fantasize about being Elizabeth Bennett with Mr. Darcy (especially if he looks like Colin Firth)!

Where would I NOT want to live? I definately wouldn’t want to live in some of Palahniuk’s worlds, or Bentley Little’s…. or Stephen King. Pretty much any world a monster’s gonna eat me is a world I DON’T want to live in. But others less fantastical would be: Don’t want to live in the world of The Giver (too oppressive and controlled), Farenheit 451 (ditto),and any world created by the Marquis de Sade (no explanation necessary, I hope).

If I were a character who would I want to write me? Janet Evanovich could make my life fun and sexy, with just enough danger to keep life interesting. Jane Austen could make it romantic with a bit of satire. Maybe Andrew Davidson, he could make it epic and full of love, but I wouldn’t want to be crazy or burnt to a crisp to get it.

I know… Dr. Seuss could write it. He could make it fun and colorful with just enough of a hint of love without being porny with it, and I know there wouldn’t be any monsters to get me, because all his monsters are good 😀

Friday Fill-In #81
Those of you with multiple blogs or private blogs…if you could add your link to the Fill-Ins, that would be GREAT! All questions this week are courtesy of Sherry; thank you, girl!

1. If I could be a fly on the wall I would keep the heck away from the fly swatter !

2. Jealousy is “the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on”.

3. When I see a shooting star my wish would be that I win the lottery.

4. I’d rather be the foot than the cockroach any day!

5. Certain songs when I hear them make me wanna grab a gun and shoot people at random from the clock tower. (“Peanut Butter Jelly Time” and “I’m a cat! I’m a kitty cat!” comes to mind)

6. If time were in a bottle I’d throw in a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar, some rosemary and sugar and have a tasty salad… (oh, wait, that the wrong kind of time).

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to a night with only one child, tomorrow my plans include taking Maggie to The White House for breakfast, and Sunday, I want to have finished Sana Krasikov’s One More Year!
