Erk. Wait. That last part isn't true. I mean, I might laugh a little on the inside, but I would never make fun of you. I'm too busy making fun of myself.
I really need to get better at this whole multitasking thing.
So, today's game is the literary version of vampire, werewolf, or zombie. Because Hollywood ain't the only place that's full of supernatural beasties. And really, do you think that a normal human could really have written "Gone with the Wind"? Rhett was a vampire, and so was Margaret Mitchell.
Trust me. I have sources.
So here's your challenge. Out of the following list of people, who is the vampire, who is the werewolf, and who is the zombie? Your choices are:
That's right. You! Most of the people who read The Wonder That Is My Blog are bookish types, either in the reading or writing category. And really, I do this because it may be the only time in your life that you are put on a list with Shakespeare and Austen. Unless that list is "People Who Have Two Hands," in which case you're on the list with them and a few trillion other blokes. So I'm really doing it as a public service to you. Don't get all huffy about it, or I'll send the ninjas after you.
So bring on those answers. Will you doom yourself to an eternity of blood-drinking, years of superfluous hair, or a bunch of lurching and moaning? And don't the options sound great when I put them that way?
Shakespeare- Vampire. He is just way too cool to be anything else.
Austin- Werewolf. God only knows what happened to her when the full moon rose.
Me- Zombie. I don't get enough sleep around here to be anything but that.
I agree with Jamie that Shakespeare is a vampire, and for the same reason.
Austen: Zombie because only the dead could possibly be so boring.
Shakespeare- The vampire
Jane- The werewolf
Me- I am so the Zombie. I love brains!!
And I quote the Simpsons:
"Is this the end of Zombie Shakespeare?"
Me: Werewolf (I forgot to shave today, too)
Shakespeare - Vampire (ask Marlowe).
Jane Austen - Werewolf (I've seen pictures).
Me - duh! Zombie.
Shakespeare - Zombie. Don't get me wrong. The Bard is way WAY cool (I even have the bible i.e. The Complete Works). But just look at Hamlet, King Lear, and Titus Andronicus: Men and woman dropping dead faster then Carrie can get to the Tom Robbins/Neil Gaiman/Bruce Campbell combo autograph booth. Dead coming back from the Grave. Body part flying EVERYWHERE. There's just too much of a Z-factor going on here.
Austin - Vampire. Just look at the twilight series, eh?
Me: Hmm let's see -
Ninja = Cuisinart in Black Pajamas
Werewolf = Cuisinart in Fur Coat
It's just a matter of changing outfits :-) -- Werewolf
Yay! I'm on the list! Why, thank you. :)
Shakespeare - Vampire. Perhaps all the blood he sucked gave him more genius. Because he really is genius. Or at least his work is...
Austen - Zombie. I don't think she slept much, if at all, worrying whether or not she'd ever find that perfect man.
Me: Werewolf. Because it's the one that's left, and I'm sure that I look like one when I get angry. I'm always making my husband run in the opposite direction.
Boy, this is tuffy. I'm going to have to say that Shakespeare is the werewolf. Jane Austen the zombie and I'm the vampire.
What can I say? Tru Blood makes it look so sexy...
Well, I'll take the cake here and leave the other guys in the dust because I am all three. A vampire because I love the dark. I love moody weather which they all seem to love too. I also find biting someone's neck somehow sexy, but will deny it if you tell anyone.
Werewolf is also me b/c I have lots of hair and during certain phases of my cycle I am known to turn into a beast. And zombie, yes, a zombie of a mother sometimes. Hey, is mummy like a zombie? SOmetimes I don't get enough sleep and scare my family with my rough edges.
Shakespeare is definitely the vampire...all the killing in his plays was not for literary drama.
Austen is the werewolf...maybe she never married because of the hair/howling at the moon issue.
I guess that makes me a zombie...that explains the huge bags under my eyes and incomprehensible babbling. Or maybe that's just my all my AP classes...
William Shakespeare: Zombie, because he still lives to this day, laughing maniacally at what his legacy has meant for high school students everywhere. I actually heard him snickering outside my classroom when it was my turn to recite from memory the "friends, Romans, countryman" speech. B******!
Jane Austen: Vampire. Isn't it obvious?
Me: I know that should leave me as the werewolf, but I am actually a MUMMY. I have nothing new to wear, my joints creak when I move, my skin is beyond dry and all I do is sit around collecting dust.
Shakespeare - the Zombie - he does have a lot of people dying in his stories...
Austin - the Vampire - she was pretty pale in color...
Me - Werewolf - I haven't had time to shave my legs in about a week...yikes! I'm so glad its pants weather and Hubs and I have both been too tired to care...grin...
I'm going to go shave my legs now...
I think Shakespears the zombie and Austen the vampire witch means I must be the werewolf, which does kind of suck beacause I'd rather be the vampire but Jane so beat me to it.
Shake: Vampire, his plays are all full of blood
Me: Werewolf - you don't want to be around me when the tides are effected
Lina, are you saying Jane Austen is a vampire witch? Interesting combination.
