Elevensies Tag

Miss Evelyn from Into The Western Wild tagged me! :)

To start I'm supposed to list eleven random facts about myself; but I thought it might be neat to list eleven characters that I'm like instead. So....

1) Barney Fife
Because some of us are just called to enforce justice.... 

2) Cogsworth
Again all about keeping order and following the rules (especially my own)

3) Rabbit

This is exactly the way I would act if someone bounced in my garden.
Rabbit is really uptight, and I can be a lot of the time, but not all the time. :)

4) Cinderella
I've been told by several people that I look like her and I like cleaning the house while I sing. (Just don't walk across my freshly mopped floor or I turn into Rabbit  ;)

5) Radagast
I share Radagast's love of nature, though probably not quite to his extent. I also share his fondness for hedgehogs. :D

6) Marianne Dashwood
Hayden says I'm very much like Marianne, though I don't know why....

7) One Man Band
I will try to learn any instrument that I can get my hands on; it's also usually not that hard for me to pick out tunes by ear.

8) Lucy
That's says it all right there. :)

9) Rapunzel

I like baking, drawing, painting, playing instruments, and breaking out into random song ect. Or just all things artsy. :)

10) Uncle Albert

Because I love to laugh  just as much as he does. :)

11) Lucy Ricardo

I'm like Lucy because I'm always coming up with crazy ideas and trying to get Hayden (my Ethel) to go along with them.

1. What's your eye color? Hazel

2. Narnia or Lord of the Rings?  I don't really know. I've read all but one of the Chronicles of Narnia books, but I've only read The Hobbit out of the Lord of the Rings series. I really like them both.

3. Are you a brunette, blond, red head or other? Blond

4. Would you rather live in the city or the  country? Country

5. Are you an early bird or a night owl? I'm an owl who wants to be an early bird :)

6. What was the last book you read? The Gospel of John

7. Do you like tea, coffee, or neither? I love both coffee and tea

8. What's your favorite instrument? Do you play it? This is a really hard question. I really like the cello, violin, guitar, piano, and a variety of flutes/whistles; but I don't think that I can pick one favorite as of just now. I've taught myself tin whistle and some piano and a friend of mine said she would teach me some guitar soon.

9. Cats or dogs? Why? I have two cats that I love, but I like dogs too. I don't think I could really say I'm a "dog person" or a "cat person" because I'm happy with both.

10. If you've read or watched Little Women are you more like Meg, Jo, Beth, or Amy? I'm a combination of Meg and Amy.

11. If you could go to one of the three scenes described in the following sentences, which would you chose?
 A cute cottage overlooking a lake with the sun setting softly, and a loon calling in the  distance, while you're sitting cuddling a puppy.
 A grand castle with beautiful gardens surrounding it, while you're headed down in a pretty gown to a grand feast, lots of friends, and dancing.
 Or a big vineyard in Italy, the sun starting to set throwing pretty light on the hundreds of rows, while you're heading eagerly towards a large house where the sound of laughter and teasing come drifting from the windows, glowing with the light within.
I'd say the party at the castle, though the cottage is a close second.

I'm supposed to come up with eleven of my own questions and eleven people to tag but I'm not going to do that this time. (because I don't have time! ;)

I really loved your idea of coming up with 11 characters, Em! Even if you *do* make me feel like Ethel all the time with your nutty ideas... :)

Evelyn said...

I so enjoyed your answers! It was fun reading them. Thanks for doing the tag! =D Which Narnia book haven't you read?

Emily said...

I was really fun to do! :) I haven't read The Last Battle. I've tried to read it a few times, but I could never get past the ape and the donkey. :)

Kelsey said...

Oh, you should read The Last Battle. It's not my favorite, but I love the ending. I really didn't care for the first half. It just wasn't as good as the other Narnia stories, probably because it was darker and more serious (it *was* representing the end of time, after all!). But after Aslan returns it gets better. :)

By the way, I'd go for the castle too. :D

Kelsey said...
