Follow Friday #4

Another week racked up, another Follow Friday to post! Follow My Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee! Visit their sites to join in the fun, and don't forget to check out this week's featured blogs - The Bursting Bookshelf and Book Savvy Babe.

This week's Follow Friday question is:

"What superhero is your alter-ego?"

I don't know that I really have an answer for this question, to be honest! I enjoy comic book heroes and the like, but as far as considering one of them as a possible alter-ego for myself, I really don't know. They are all pretty much my opposite! Very strong, confident, beautiful, talented. Like Red Sonja. Bitch is FIERCE. Though since she's more sword-wielding vigilante than superhero, I guess. Her superpower could be vindictiveness and the ability to wear tiny mail bikinis? An extreme sense of justice? But hell, even Squirrel Girl, then. Making friends with creatures is not easy! I try to make friends with every cat I see and sometimes squirrels, and let me tell you - it doesn't work a vast majority of the time. I think that's why my main avatar on WoW is a hunter with special talents in beast mastery. I just want to be friends with the animals, guys.

I also used to be really obsessed with the Powerpuff Girls and I also love the Sailor Scouts/Sailor Senshi, lol. Don't judge me!

Maybe I AM a superhero. By day, I am College Student - with the developing power to side human bones within a margin of error and the power to distinguish separate phonemes from their allophones with an adequate data set! Also the power to speak French rather poorly! The power to find a space in the front parking lot every day!

By evening and on the weekends I am The Recluse - with the powers to rearrange bookshelves and to escape from reality at will with a book or a computer game!

That, and I guess my avatars on WoW could be considered alter-egos of sorts.

So! Who's YOUR alter-ego?

Edit: I took a "What Superhero Are You" quiz, and it says I am the Invisible Girl from the Fantastic Four.


  1. LMAO I forgot about the Power Puff Girls -- maybe that would've been more appropriate for me :P

    Thanks for stopping by (old follower)! :)

  2. LOL! Squirrel Girl? Powerpuff Girls? Those totally and completely count as super-awesome superheroes! I used to love them too! Bubbles was my favourite -- mostly because she's always smiling and slightly ditzy like me! x)

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Colleen! I'm an old follower for sure!

    Hope you have an amazing weekend! :)

  3. You have great taste in superheroines! I forgot all about Red Sonja, but I've heard a few other people mention Powerpuff Girls and Sailor Scouts--looks like we all grew up enjoying the same cartoons. :-)

    I need to take that What Superhero Are You quiz...

  4. Hahha! Thanks for brining up the Powerpuff girls--those chicks ruled my childhood!

  5. LOVE your answers. LOL!

    Thanks for stopping by mine!!!!

  6. I can't make friends with squirrels either. They never come when I call and they look at me funny and run away when I get close. Alas! :D

    Thanks for stopping in for a visit!


  7. Not familiar with that one! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  8. I love it. The Power Puff Girls. I haven't thought of them in quite a while. LOL! Great response. Thanks for stopping by Better Read Than Dead.

  10. Haha "Also the power to speak French rather poorly!" I love it! This post was hilarious. I haven't seen the Powerpuff Girls in so long! Thanks for stopping by! Old follower.

  11. I like your superpowers! Very funny :)

  12. I love all those super powers! It would be great to combine them all! Thanks for stopping by!

  13. All those are great picks, at least you took the time to answer the question unlike me! Thanks for stopping by, New Follower!:)

  14. Of all the answers I've read so far, I like yours best! :) I definitely think being a college student makes us superheroes. Lol. It's hard sometimes, and no one understands. Just because I only have class 3 days a week...

  15. Is it a bad thing that I don't recognize one of the girls you named? lol

  16. No shame in loving the Sailor Scouts :) Sailor Moon was even mentioned in that song by Bare Naked Ladies, remember?? I used to love that show as well. Oh, and I'm pretty much a recluse, too, but I very rarely find a parking space in the front of the lot. Hope you have a great weekend,

  20. Powder Puff Girls was my first thought....then I decided on Storm. I was swayed by the idea of Halle Berry playing her in so many movies.
