Road Trip Wednesday

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors  post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our  own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get  everybody's unique take on the topic.

This week's topic:  What gift would you give your favorite character?

First, we have to establish just who my favorite character is.  Hmmm... that's, like, really hard.

Well, lets start with my favorite Christmas show character:  Buddy the Elf.

I <3 Buddy the Elf.

For him -- a very, very large container of maple syrup, one of those huge bags of m&m's, and the world's best cup of coffee.

Then lets take Hermione Granger, who is one of my all-time favorite characters ever.  EVER!

For her -- one of those book bookshelf things.  You know, the ones that hang on the wall so it looks like books are just suspended by magic!  She could even put them up in her muggle parent's house!  Genius.

Conceal Invisible Book Shelf 

Last and anything but least, Westley from The Princess Bride.  Ah, Westley. 


For him:  I don't really care, I just wanted a reason to put a picture of him in my post. 

What would you give your favorite characters? 

I'm taking the rest of the week off from the blog, my lovelies!  I'm off from the day job, and will be hard at work crunching out the last few chapters worth of revisions to meet my goal.  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!  **hugs and love**

I love Westley. LOVE him. Have you read the book? It's even better than the movie. ::sigh::

Erinn said...

Wesley I would give an unlimited supply of perfect breasts.

Awesome post.

When Buddy walks into the coffee shop and yells, "YOU DID IT!!! WORLDS BEST COFFEE" it's possibly my favorite moment in cinema history

KO said...

Great ones-- Westley is so dashing.

And funny Erinn. Westley would be happy with your gift.

I have to admit I saw Elf only once and didn't get into it, though I love Will Farell. Maybe I should give it another try?

I love those floating bookshelves. I want those all over my apartment.

I never saw Elf in it's entirety, not much of a shocker there. A few RTW's ago, we found out that I don't watch many movies.

Holly enjoy your blog free holiday!

Meredith said...

Mmmmm, Westley...

Have a great holiday!

Rebecca B said...

That book bookshelf is seriously awesome.

Happy Holidays!

Great choices, esp. Hermione's bookshelf! I just skipped the dilemma of my favorite character and wrote about a recent're right, that does make it harder.

Abby Stevens said...

Ha ha, I love the bookshelf thing, especially hanging it in her parents' house as if by "magic."

:) Very clever.

Enjoy the rest of the week off!

I totally would pick Evie from PARANORMALCY...and to her I would gift an endless supply of glitter. I am pretty sure she would die from happiness.

Demitria said...

Buddy the elf...good choice! Also Wesley...but have you seen Cary Elwes lately? Well, it is 23 years later :)

Ooh, I want that bookshelf thing for myself! :)

Angelica R. Jackson said...

I was thinking along the same lines as you and Westley with my first ideas--but then I cleaned up my act.

And LOL--when I read that Erinn would give Westley an unlimited supply of perfect breasts, I pictured Cary Elwes WITH perfect breasts! You have to be more specific for us literal-minded folks, or we get disturbing images stuck in our heads.

I love those bookshelves, and such a perfect gift for Hermione! I also heartily approve of your Westley picture.

Leila Austin said...

Magical bookshelves for Hermione! Perfect!

I could use some of those for me. From where I'm sitting I can see, oh, at least three different precarious stacks of books. Yeah.
