Tongue & Cheek Meme

Lynne from Lynne's Little Corner of the World tagged me for a purely innocent meme. No, hubby wasn't maddened by my character lust. ;D

“Ten Literary Characters I Would Totally Make Out With If I Were Single and They Were Real.”

1.) Inman of Cold Mountain (but I'll wait for him to take a shower)

2.) Captain Gus McCrae of Lonesome Dove (but I'll have to get in line)

3.) Captain Woodrow F. Call of Lonesome Dove (strong, silent type)

4.) Mr. Darcy of Pride & Prejudice (oh, but he makes me so mad!)

5.) Rooster Cogburn of True Grit (a real man's man)

6.) Jacob Jankowski of Water for Elephants (He doesn't mind my past!)

7.) Mark Darcy of Bridget Jone's Diary (oh, but he makes me even madder!)

8.) Rhett Butler of Gone with the Wind (I'll help you forget her...)

9.) Ranger or Morelli from the Stephanie Plum Series (Eeny Meeny Miny Joe!)

10.) Ebenezer Scrooge of A Christmas Carol (old, rich, and ready to kick the bucket) Bah!

Maggie said...

Well, Lynne your list was way funnier! :D

Tiffany Norris said...

OK, I just laughed out loud...in the library...when I got to Scrooge. Too funny!

Maggie said...

Shush, Tiffany! Check out Lynne's list, too! :D

iliana said...

Oh this was funny. Although I would definitely take Ranger over Joe ;)

Paul said...

Maggie I wanna make out with Helen Mirren and Hilary Clinton! :-)

Reene said...

Ooh I totally agree with you with Rhett Butler and Mark Darcy...and Mr. Darcy for that matter.
And I just love your blog!! :-)

Maggie said...

Apparently, I can't decide Ilana! ;D

Paul, should I warn them? ;)

Reene, I'm ashamed I couldn't think of more southerners, ah, but Darcy... ;D

Diane said...

Great choices!

Nyssaneala said...

Cute meme! I am in complete agreement with the Darcy picks. I would probably go for Morelli over Ranger, but that would be a hard choice. :)

Maggie said...

Thanks Diane!

Nyssaneala, love the preggers yahoo photo. So cute! Morelli seems to be closer to marriage than Ranger. Don't cha think? :)

Love your answers. Love the pic.

I like the part about kissing men who take showers before you would touch them.

Ha ha! I always had the hots for Atticus Finch, but then I saw photos of Harper Lee's dad, whom she based Atticus on, and, well, he's no Gregory Peck. I'll just have to try to keep the movie Atticus in my head.

Deana said...

Scrooge? Ah too funny! You'd be earning your money on that one girl! This has to be one of my favorite meme's ever.

Maggie said...

Thanks WW100! I hate to be fussy, but Inman really walks off the calories! :D He could probably use a good flossing, too.

I'm guessing lapa is an ad? Nice blog though...

Too funny Dewey. I just cannot see myself kissing a lawyer, admirable or not. :)

Maggie said...

Hey, thanks Deana! Ah, give him a little chapstick and things will run smooth. ;D

The good ones are often maddening.

Scrooge. You're so silly.

Maggie said...

It was a fun meme Bookfool! :)
