Tell Me Something Tuesday #1

Tell me something Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Cambria Hebert over at www.cambriahebert.com ... Go check it out because she has an awesome blog!

This is also an exciting post for me because this will be my very first time at participating in a meme! (I know, I know... where have I been?! And yes, I learn so very slowly...) So without further ado; this weeks question is:

*drum roll*

If you could spend a day with a book character who would it be and what would you do?

My Answer:

This is such a fab question. It's taken me a while to consider this...
There are many characters that pop up in the fuzz that is my brain but I keep coming back to one.

I think I would have to spend it with Death...

That is; Death and the Death of  Rats from Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

Crazy choice I know; but he makes me laugh so much with his innocence and misunderstandings about what it means to be human. He tries so hard to be 'human' but it never goes quite right for him.

If I was to end up spending the day with Death; I would hope to get a ride on Binky his horse and meet his poor old butler Albert.

I just think chilling out with this character would be lots of fun... Probably hard work too, what with his job and everything. He's a very busy... person? Skeleton? Erm... Character?!

Who would you pick and why?
Happy blog hopping!


  1. LOL! I've heard the Terry Pratchett books are good and now I know I want to read this one and meet Death. Great answer! And welcome to the meme!

  2. Oh my goodness. When you first said death I thought, "she wants to spend a day dead?" LOL!! Then I thought "oh, no, she wants to hang with the grim reaper" LOL.
    I am going to have to check this book out, i have to admit I haven't heard of it. thanks for bringing it into the light.

    And welcome to TMST!!! So glad that you joined in, you are welcome anytime! We have a lot of fun and I love to get question ideas from all of you so feel free to send me some. :) No worries about it being your first, believe it or not I started this one and never did one either, LOL. Now I do this one and another they are really fun. And there is no doing it wrong. i just make it up as I go along.... lol.

    thanks for joining in!

    1. Thank yooooooooooou!
      I really love this meme Cambria, it's a great idea and it made me want to join in! (last week's animal Q was great!)

      I have got a lot to learn about blogging in general! I have come across some beautifully put together blogs that have left me thinking "Wow! How did they do that?!" I'm just bumbling my way along!

      What I admire about Pratchett's work is how he managed to create a whole world and bring it to life with his characters. It's witty and brilliantly funny, I hope you get a chance to read his work.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi Schez! So nice to meet you. Welcome to the little meme. It is a fun one and unique, too. I always get a great response on my blog to my TMST posts.
    Death, what a unique answer. I haven't read Terry Pritchett yet, He is on my list, since I enjoy Neil Gaiman. This sounds like a very entertaining book, perfect for Halloween. I am going to go look it up! Thanks for sharing! Happy Tuesday!

    1. Hello Heidi!
      This Tuesday meme is a lot of fun; I'm glad I've finally cottoned on! Ha!
      I chose Death becuase he's such a clever take on the grim reaper... seriously funny!

      Happy Tuesday to you too!

  4. Welcome Schez! I like your answer, though, I must admit I've never heard of Discworld before, but I will defiantly read it now. Thanks!

  6. Sorry, about the double post. It didn't show the first time. :(

    1. Hi Red Ink!
      Thanks for stopping by! Terry Pratchett's work is so much fun; he has given us a lot of fantasy novels but his Discworld novels will always be a favourite. I hope you enjoy it. :-)

    2. :) thank you! I'm sure I will!
