30 Days of Books - Day 15

I woke up this morning feeling like shit - I appear to have developed a cold. Again. I went to work because I had a couple of things to do that couldn't wait until Monday, but once those were done, I was all "Yeah, so...I'm going home now *hack sniff wheeze*". I stopped off in the city on my way home, because a couple of weeks ago, I managed to shred one of my pillowcases in the dryer. I spent a chunk of time trying to fix it, but finally deemed it too far gone.

So I was planning on going shopping tomorrow, but considering the whole feeling like shit thing, I figured it was safer to go on my way home in case I wake up feeling even worse tomorrow morning. Sweet baby Jesus, there is some SERIOUSLY fugly bed linen out there. I honestly don't know how people wake up to that stuff in the morning without hurling. My personal favourite? A Paris theme. It had the Eiffel Tower on one pillow, the word "PARIS" in giant letters across the bottom of the quilt cover, and a selection of Paris themed pictures. Including a sign for the Moulin Rouge. Because nothing says class like advertising a cabaret club on your bed...

Day 15 - Your favourite male character

This one was a no brainer.

Yup. Ron Weasley. I love Ron. He's just so...average, bless him. I mean, his best friends are The Boy Who Lived and "the smartest witch in our year". His brothers are curse breakers, dragon wranglers, and purveyors of seriously awesome stuff (let's just ignore Percy and his study on the thickness of cauldron bottoms, shall we?), and his sister does a mean Bat-Bogey Hex. And Ron? He breaks his wand and ends up burping slugs. He gets his leg broken by a tree and loses a chunk of arm to a Splinching incident. He has no faith in his academic or sporting abilities. He's terrified of spiders. His pet rat turns out to be a bat shit crazy killer. And he ingests a love potion and then nearly dies from drinking poisoned mead.

But despite all of it, Ron's awesome. He sacrifices himself for his friends in Philosopher's Stone, he saves Harry's life in Deathly Hallows, he destroys a Horcrux, manages to speak Parseltongue, allowing them to destroy another Horcrux, and ends up with the love of his life. And he does it all while coming out with stuff like "Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret."

Like I said, Ron is awesome. And totally worthy of being my favourite male character.

  1. I did NOT pass my cold via Internets. I just wanted to make that super, duper clear.

    Also, it's taken me far too long to make my way over to your blog. I hope you will accept my apology that will come by way of constant future stalking.



  2. Yeah, I know it wasn't you, Lor. It was my work wife.

    And the constant future stalking is only fair, seeing as I've been blog stalking you for months!! ;)

  3. Oh Kirsti, you've got it bad for the Ronster...can't quite believe that he makes it to the top of the list over some of our favourite classic literature heroes. He's great and all, don't get me wrong but I can't imagine ever swooning over him like Mr Darcy or Mr Thornton!

  4. Yes, but Sara, written Darcy and Thornton and Rochester means no Colin or Armitage or Toby. Which means you're just left with these guys who are kind of mean until the last chapter when they're all lovey and romantic. Okay, so it's not the last chapter with Rochester, but whatever.

    I'd take Won Won over that! Plus, he says "Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret", which is pretty much my favourite Potter line ever. Besides "Not my daughter, you bitch!". Obviously...


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
