Today I am linking up with The Broke and the Bookish and participating in their weekly Top Ten Tuesday feature post. (To learn more about TTT, click here.) This week's theme is:
So, I have chosen:
TEN SEVEN BOOKISH PEOPLE (REAL OR FICTIONAL) I WOULD LOVE TO JOIN ME FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER
While creating my guest list, I kept this in mind - I would want to sit down to a meal, especially a meal of thanksgiving, with people who were fun, intelligent, appreciative, and who had interesting things to talk about.
- Alan Karlsson from The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out a Window and Disappeared. In his 100 years, Alan did a a lot of living. He traveled far and wide, met many historical and famous people, and experienced so many interesting things. Having such a wealth of experiences to draw from, I think Alan would be a fun and articulate dinner guest.
- Joe Pike from Robert Crais' Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series. Joe doesn't say much, but when he does, you know what he's saying is important. I think he's quiet demeanor would be an asset.
- Jamie Fraser from Outlander. If you remember, Jamie also made the Halloween party list last month. What can I say? He's a charismatic Highlander with a great accent and he wears a kilt, of course I'm going to invite him.
- Ranger from Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. Ranger, in my opinion, is much like Joe Pike and would provide a good balance in contrast to those who might be overly talkative. And, I think it would be awesome to hear him to call me "Babe" just once... Babe, can you pass the rolls? LOL!
- Ave Maria Mulligan from Big Stone Gap. Ave Maria is from a small town in Appalachia, like me. I just think it would be cool to have someone else at the table whose childhood and formative years were much like mine.
- Grandma Mazur from Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. I would want Grandma Mazur there simply for the funny comments I'm sure that would pour out of her mouth. She would ensure laughter and lightheartedness.
- Mark Watney from The Martian. If ever there was a character who had something to be thankful for, it's Mark Watney. I think sharing a meal with him at a table of plenty is only fitting. Not only could he regale us with anecdotes from his time on Mars, but he presence would be a living reminder to be thankful for every day we are given.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
