Q: Activity! Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?


This is actually kind of amusing that we get this question now. I just had a co-worker start calling me Hermoine from Harry Potter because I was so adamant over the pronunciation of the words "pecans" and "pralines". In case you don't know, it's "Peh-cawns" and "Prah-leens". I think Emma Watson in the first movie is pretty much what she looks like. But I love the way her look evolved into slightly sleeker but yet believable. I guess the things we have in common: getting annoyed that pronunciation is wrong and book-smarts.


So who would you like to be?

  8. Hermoine, of course. She really was the genius of the whole series, yet Harry seemed to get most of the credit.

  9. Hermione is an amazing choice. The scene when Hermione keeps talking about pronunciation is one of my favorites. :) I was stuck between Hermione, Luna, and Katy from Obsidian. I'm a new follower through GFC. :)
