Express Yourself: Movie Character

The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is brought to you by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.

The prompt for this week is: Name a movie character's personality who is you to a tee.

I've seen a bit of myself in a lot of characters.  A recent Harry Potter quiz determined that I am most like Hermione Granger.  I told my husband about my results, and he just gave me a look that said, "Yeah, and this is news?"  I am a bookworm, and I like to impress others with my recall of useless trivia.  At least Hermione frequently recalled facts that got them out of sticky situations.  My recall of similar facts makes me good at Trivial Pursuit, but has the unfortunate side effect of annoying a lot of people.

Then again, I also have a bit of a sarcastic attitude.  I don't go looking for fights, but I will stand up for myself when I have to.  I like to think that I'm smart, confident, and snarky like Princess Leia.  Perhaps she pulls off the confidence better than I do, but I try my best.

When it comes to the way I fail to fit in with my surroundings, I feel like Luna Lovegood.  Yes, I know, another Harry Potter character.  So what?  It fits.  I like how she's weird, but she wears her weirdness with grace.  She knows who she is, and she doesn't apologize for it.  I was weird and awkward when I was younger, but as I get older, I can embrace my strange nature more and be comfortable with it.

So, yeah, I didn't choose one,but I think I chose three that mirror certain aspects of myself quite well.  Hopefully that works well enough!


  1. A lot of people in my office liken me to Liz Lemon on 30 Rock...not sure how I feel about that one ;)

  2. I think three is fine, different aspects. I'm going to have to contemplate for awhile. Don't know who I am! :)

  3. Annoying people when playing Trivia Pursuit - that's funny! Bet we could annoy them together. Years of doing crossword puzzles has filled my brain with useless facts.

  4. Great choices!!! Three fave characters of mine. :)
