TGIF (I know, it’s Sunday)

April 17th, 2011 Weekly Happenings!

TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger over at Greads and is a little spot where we can post a recap of the week and where she also gives us a question to ponder…be sure to go on over and check out all the other blogs that link up.  It is a great way to get to know others in the blogging community.  You never know when your new bff will post up through a linky :)

This week’s question is….

Fictional Places:

If you could visit any fictional setting in a story, where would you go?


Holy cow…I know it is Sunday but if ever a week to go TGI freaking F it has been this week!  So, therefore I will still post my Friday post on this lovely Sunday night.  Why?  Well, just because…

If I could visit a fictional setting one of the first I would want to go to is to England in National Velvet.  Just to be in Sussex surrounded with the stables, green land and horses…It was the very first movie I ever saw in a theater after reading the book and I was in heaven.  I was so little and don’t remember everything, but after the Easter bunny visits I will be reading the book again with my daughter and I can’t wait to visit the Grand National Steeplechase again!

Another place I would love to visit is the setting of The Great Gatsby…mainly just the clothes and the cars and maybe a little of aristocricy.  The opulent parties, the prohibition, and wild jazz music just seems like quite a time!

My last choice would be Pemberly Brown from the Liar Society.  The setting seems so mysterious and full of adventure.  Well, of course then as I type this I am thinking, oh but wait, I’d love to be sent to Westhaven from Haven and who wouldn’t love to go away to boarding school in Paris like in Anna and The French Kiss.  I guess some of my favorite imaginary places to be are some of my favorite books!

Thanks Ginger for hosting…hopefully this next week my Friday will actually coincide with Friday!

Have a great week!
