Me in 5 Characters Tag
Thank you to the greenish bookshelf for tagging me in the ‘Me in 5 Characters’ – tag. It’s fairly self-explanatory – name 5 characters that in a nutshell make up your character. I’m a little bit late with this one – but ‘better late than never’ could be my middle name and in fact that brings me to my first character:
From Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland: The White Rabbit – I’m always late. Put simply I underestimate the amount of time that I need to undertake a task and the actual reality of the situation. I leave lots of things until the last minute and in fact everyone of my family and friends knows this about me. I will alway be as late as I possibly can get away with being!
Bram Stoker’s Dracula – okay, to be clear – I don’t drink blood and I’m not one of the undead BUT I am a person who likes the night over the day! When I’m off work I always stay up late at night – consequently this leads me to my next character:
Rip Van Winkle – I could win medals for sleeping. I may stay up late into the wee hours but I also stay in bed very late the following day. You couldn’t wake me if you tried. I have to have my alarm clock at the other end of the room so that it makes me get out of bed to turn it off. I have to have eight hours sleep or I’m like a bear with a sore head and I can sleep anywhere! In a disco, on the bus, on a plane!
Marian Halcombe from Wilkie Collins Woman in White – I’d like to think I’d be resourceful and sensible like Marian – she makes a great adversary to the Count and she’s just one of those very upfront (blunt maybe), unromantic characters who doesn’t faint on a whim!
And finally, book loving – obviously! There are a number of fictional characters that spring to mind but I think I would probably go with Liesel from The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak – okay, again just to be clear, I’ve not quite reached the stage of stealing books yet – but you have to remember that Liesel was desperate!
So, in a nutshell, I’m a nocturnal, sleepy, book reading rabbit who is never on time for anything!
Now, I should really choose some lucky people to tag myself but I’ve decided to tag you all – if you want to have a think about 5 characters that have similar traits then please go for it and drop me a link – surprisingly, this is a lot more difficult than I originally thought so I challenge you all! Mwahaahaha.
