Follow Friday (2)


Q. ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.


A: This is a hard one because I’m not one to normally have a favorite character.  I don’t reread books, I pass them on.  I know it sounds lame, but it’s just who I am. 


Though, in the spirit of of the blog hop, I thought long and hard (well, does 15 minutes count as long and hard?) about this, and here’s what I came up with: Jessica Fletcher (played by Angela Lansbury).  Go ahead andimage laugh, I know you want to, but Murder, She Wrote is one of my all-time favorite shows.  Jessica was spunky, persistent, and she always solved the crime.


If she walked into the room, I would probably try to wake myself up, ‘cause I know I’d be dreaming. 


So, who’s yours?


Many Adventures,

  1. Interesting. I love Angela Lansbury as Jessica Fletcher. She was a great detective. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour. New follower.

  2. Never watch the show before but she sounds a good enough detective. And the picture of her is so... cute?

  16. LOL. My grandma loves this woman. She used to make me watch Murder She Wrote every day. This is a great pick, I haven't seen anyone else do this one. BTW, Shiver is a great book, and I'll be giving away an autographed copy of the third one in the series later this summer.
