Follow Friday (2)

 
Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read. A great way to meet fellow bloggers and get new followers!

If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be? 
 
Alright this should be fun! Albeit a bit tricky, but fun nonetheless... 

Book: Well the first book to come to mind is The Princess Bride. Even though I watched the movie a lot more times than I read the book, it's always been one of the very few books that's always at the top of my list. 

"Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True love. Hate. Revenge. Giants. Hunters. Bad men. Good men. Beautifulest ladies. Snakes. Spiders. Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passion. Miracles."

Of course I would switch places with Buttercup. She was the first strong female characters I've ever read (or at least can remember reading), Westley was my first fictional-character crush and the story is just so much fun! Coincidentally, this week's Entertainment Weekly is the reunion issue featuring ten great casts and The Princess Bride was one. Love it.


Movie: Sloane Peterson from Ferris Bueller's Day Off! That movie is always so fun to watch! It kind of made me wish I lived in the suburbs where my friends and I would sneak off to the big city for a day of a genuinely good time. No drama, no stress, just a good time.

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around once in awhile, you could miss it."


Television Show: Okay, for some reason Dead Like Me is stuck in my head and although if I focused I could pick something completely different. But I actually don't think I'd mind being a Reaper. I'd be the main character, George- recently dead and newly appointed Reaper. Damn, I miss this show!

"They say your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the moment before you die? That might be true if you're terminally ill, or your parachute doesn't open... but if death sneaks up on you, the only thing you have time to think is... Aw, shit." 

 

Well that was pretty fun! Okay your turn. Leave your link and I'll check out your answers:)

I haven't read the Princess Bride. I'm not sure who I would pick.

Old follower. OMG I completely forgot about dead like me. I loved that show to pieces. It sucks that they didn't have more seasons than they did of it.
