Tag, I'm It (Again)!

The lovely Ivy Miranda over at Revealed In Time nominated me for the Sunshine Award!  Thank you, Ivy Miranda! :)

 Her Questions:
1.) Describe your year (so far) in three words.
Ummm...okay.  Family, friendship, blogging. 
2.) Did you believe in Santa Claus as a child?

Nope. :P  I was barely aware of his "existence" till I was old enough to not believe in it.

3.) If you had a chance to live in the world of your favorite book/movie/ TV show, what would it be? (you can only choose one).

Hmm!  Um, Jane Austen.  HANDS. DOWN.  I get to live in England, there isn't any extreme danger or misery, I could visit...oh wait.  Do I have to choose one book of hers?  Fine, fine,  Pride and Prejudice.  Because that would just be so much fun. :D

4.) What is your favorite season and why?

I like winter the most, I think.  I wouldn't like to have it year-round, of course, but I love snow and hot chocolate and sledding and Christmas and my birthday, among other things. ;)  (This conclusion may have something to do with the soaring temperatures here right now. :P)

5.) Who is the fictional character you would want to marry?

First of all, I don't want to marry any fictional character seriously--I may have small crushes on some of them, yes, but it's not as if I'd refuse another man just because he didn't look like some book character.  Nor do I assume that I'll get married at all.
Now that's out of the way...it is something that I've thought about occasionally. :D  In terms of people-I'd-get-along with, Mr Tilney.  In terms of characters-I-have-crushes on...Enjolras. :P

6.) Doughnuts or cake?

CAKE.  Sorry guys, doughnuts just don't compare.

7.) Favorite show as a child?

I didn't watch TV as a child (I don't now, either), buuut I did watch the old Scooby-Doo episodes on DVD, and I absolutely loved them.  Still do, as a matter of fact. ;)

8.) Would you rather be a genius or have superhuman powers?

Superhuman powers.  Honestly, most of the geniuses of the world have been miserable (haha, I typed "miserables" at first...) and/or come to bad ends, so I really don't want to be one.  Superhuman powers could get a little uncomfortable (HA.  Typed "uncomfortables"...all right, I'm an insane Mizzie.  Deal with it. :D) sometimes, but superheroes tend to be at least moderately happy.  Unless they're Batman.

9.) Should dessert always be eaten first? 
No!  Eat your carrots, younglings. :P (But in all seriousness, I prefer eating dessert after my meal--it consoles me after something I don't like and gives me something to look forward to after I've finished something I enjoy.  Hahaha.)

My Questions:
1. What celebrity would you most like to meet, and why?
2. Which book/movie protagonist do you think you'd dislike in real life?
3. What, in your opinion, is the friendliest fandom you're in (assuming you're in one)?
4. Whipped cream or ice cream?
5. Do you enjoy baking/cooking at all?  If so, what's your favorite thing to make?
6. What's your favorite book genre, and why?
7. Do you prefer strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries?
8. What, in your opinion, divides a fruit from a vegetable?
9. If asked to list your three favorite books, what would be your first reaction?

And I honestly can't think of anyone to tag right now, so...if you're a fan of Miss Austen, consider yourself tagged.  If you do the tag, please leave a link in the comments; I'd love to read your answers! :)

Interesting! I enjoyed reading your answers :-) if you don't mind I am going to answer your questions here :)

1. What celebrity would you most like to meet, and why?

Alan Rickman so I can ask him about Sense and Sensibility and a little bit about harry potter!

Colin Firth because he is just so lovely and I really admire him, I would ask him about "The Kings Speech" which is my favourite role of his.

Geoffrey Rush meeting an Australian actor would be amazing (since I am australian) I want to just talk with him about his acting career. :)

Emma Thompson- Sense and Sensbility

Robert Hardy- I love this guy! he is awesome in "All Creatures Great and Small" a series about vets in 1940s Yorkshire.

HOW CAN YOU DOOO THIS TO MEE!

By the way, I wanted to thank you for following me. I really appreciate it! We are both Bennets :D
What a coincidence, ay? ;-)

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Ivy Miranda,
Thanks! I liked your questions. =)

Evie Brandon,
Haha, great answers! Ooh, Alan Rickman...love to meet him. I wouldn't mind Colin Firth either, though, or Emma Thompson. ;)
Bahahaha, yessssss. I greatly dislike Bella Swan, just by reputation. :P
Ooh, raspberries--I love them. Most of the time they're my favorite, but then I taste strawberries/blueberries and I can't choose anymore. :P
Hahaha! Indeeeed. That, I think, is what most book-lovers would say. ;)
Thanks for doing the tag! :)

Naomi Bennet,
HAHAHA. Yes, indeed I do! ;) I'm not sure if she really counts as a "celebrity," but another JA actress I should love to meet someday is Anna Chancellor, because she is actually related to Miss Austen! I remember I was rather thrilled when I found out about that. ;)
Snorrrrrt--from what I've heard of her, I tend to agree with you. I still have yet to read Gone With The Wind, though; I really must get on that soon. ;)
Ooh, salads are fun--my family has an ongoing competition on Who Can Make The Prettiest Salad when we have them. ;D
Ahhh, classics. Can't help but love 'em. :)
Hmmm, I like that definition! I've never heard it before, but it makes sense--it's something I like to ask people about, haha.
SNORT. YES. That...would probably be what I would say. ;P
Lovely answers! I'm glad you liked the questions--and thanks for doing the tag! :)
Oh, I really enjoy your blog; the post on Aunties got me completely hooked. :D And it's always nice to meet a fellow Bennet; speaking of, which Austen novel is your favorite? :P (Muahaha...)
Thank YOU for following me! :)

Marissa Baker said...

This is fun :) I'm going to leave mine in a comment, too.

1. What celebrity would you most like to meet, and why?
Tom Hiddleston. He likes Shakespeare, describes his apartment as wall-to-wall bookshelves, writes and speaks eloquently, watches Disney movies, and has a British accent.

2. Which book/movie protagonist do you think you'd dislike in real life?
I'll pick one from a book I like … Katnis in The Hunger Games.

3. What, in your opinion, is the friendliest fandom you're in (assuming you're in one)?
Doctor Who. We Whovians are a bit odd, but we're friendly :)

4. Whipped cream or ice cream?
Ice cream. Definitely ice cream.

5. Do you enjoy baking/cooking at all? If so, what's your favorite thing to make?
Love it! Cheesecakes are my favorite

6. What's your favorite book genre, and why?
This is almost as hard as picking favorite books. Love classics, but I think I'll have to go with speculative fiction (sci-fi and fantasy) because I love books that are idea-heavy and character-driven, which a lot of speculative fiction is.

7. Do you prefer strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries?
Raspberries

8. What, in your opinion, divides a fruit from a vegetable?
I have a very unscientific definition: if you can put it in a fruit salad, it's a fruit. “Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.”

9. If asked to list your three favorite books, what would be your first reaction?
How. Can. You. Do this to me?! It's not a nice question, but I'll still give you the first ones that come to mind:
Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Evie Brandon said...

Haha, Yes! I would love to meet those people so much! why do I live in Australia whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!? :P
