I've been wanting to make up one of these for ages - mostly because I want to post the crazy answers.
1. What are you currently reading?
The Mythology of Science, The Normans, The Nature of Love.
2. What books did you most recently buy?
How to Calculate Quickly and The Kings of Clonmel (Ranger's Apprentice, book 8).
3. What family from literature would you most like your future family to resemble?
Probably the Keith family from the Millie Keith books. Although the Murray/O'Keefe clan and the Austin family by Madeleine L'Engle are hard on the heels of the Keith family.
4. What family from literature are they most likely to ACTUALLY resemble?
The Larkin family.
5. Clothes from what book (or historical period) that you wish would come back into fashion, because it would look COMPLETELY AWESOME on you?
Regency period, i.e. Jane Austen novels.
6. Clothes from what book (or historical period) that you wish would come back into fashion, because it would look COMPLETELY AWESOME on members of the opposite gender?
Regency period, i.e. Jane Austen and Hornblower novels. Although it might make church a little odd. I can't picture Asian boys wearing Regency navy uniforms... probably a good thing.
7. What literary character would you run off with?
Heathcliff. What can I say? I like the dark obsessing types. And I bet he's TALL.
8. What literary character would you write out of existence?
Joesph from Wuthering Heights. ANNOYING.
9. What animal from literature would you have as a pet?
The hen that laid the golden eggs would be nice...
10. What fairy-tale would you like to live in?
Beauty and the Beast. I bet the Beast was TALL.
11. What evil fairytale character would you be most likely to be?
The witch from Rapunzel.
12. What poet (living or dead) would you have write you a love poem?
Robert Burns. And I'd get at least two poems out of him - a in love poem, and a break up poem. AWESOME. As long as he didn't refer to me as Haggis in either poem. Yuck, Yuck, YUCK. But his poetry is Yum, Yum, YUM.
