My name is the Sage and I have been tagged and I hear that this is not freeze tag so I can

Um Sage? Your supposed to write in the post box not the title. 


Anne{my authoress} has a sister named Amy and on her blog she has tagged me to do a tag. It is in 11s. I prefer the number 412 but no one asked me. And after all I make it a point to never answer questions that are not asked me.

Anne is poking me and saying that I aught to tell a little about myself. Well My name is the Young Sage. I go by "the sage" and I live in the Kingdom, in the Castle, with the king the queen and the princess.

Now 11 random things about me.

  1. I am not a dog. I sometimes find it necessary to remind people of this.
  2. I am a third degree Sage. That isn't like a third degree burn it means my temperature is three degrees higher then the other sages. Healthily that is.
  3. I knit pickle jar covers. Marianne the cook finds them very useful. I like to sit in the sink while I knit them.
  4. My favorite book is Wuthering Heights by a Bronte. It's so incredibly funny.
  5. Someday I plan to discover a continent. When I told the princess that she said that there were only 7 continents and they had already been discovered. The reason every one thinks there 7 is because the one I'm going to discover hasn't been discovered yet.
  6. My favorite movie is that one about the man who flies his house. I like the Doug dog. He means Up.
  7. I own a talking frog 
  8. I have never ridden in a hot air balloon
  9. I invented Hot air balloons 
  10. I count my hair for fun sometimes
  11. O is the bast letter of the alphabet.     
Now I must answer Amy's questions 
1. Describe your dream pair of shoes.
I have only once dreamed about a pair of shoes. They were the princess's silver party shoes and they were having tea with the butcher.
2. What's your favorite children's picture book?
If you give a mouse a cookie. 
3. What's your favorite fruit?
Wlalwalgura. A nonexistent fruit that grows in Uganda. 
4. How tall are you? (I always like to know how tall people are-- not sure why.  Don't worry, I'm not asking for your weight... and if you feel it's an invasion of your privacy to post your height, you can substitute a picture of a cute kitten for this question.)
I am taller than my shoulder and shorter than my hat.
5. If money was no object, where would you like to go on your honeymoon?
What's a honeymoon? A trip two people who just got married go on. Oh. I haven't gotten married. I like ladybugs.
6. Who is your favorite singer?
Harold Skimpole of Bleak House
7. What's the next book on your to-read list?
Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary. I enjoy great literature
8. What's your biggest language-related pet peeve? (i.e., what phrases or words bug you the most?)
When people contradict themselves.
9. Which movie lines do you quote the most? (share as many or as few as you like)
I only quote myself. That way I always know what I am talking about.
10. If you could wear any outfit from a movie for a day, what would you choose?
I always liked those mutton chop thingys Reverend Alan wears in Anne of Green Gables.
11. What's your favorite dessert?
Onions and Hay.

“Latin, my dear little boy is the language from which came English. Do not call it silly.” The sage stood up and looked down his nose at the Governess. He only came up to her hip but somehow, the Princess wasn’t quite sure how, he maneged to look down his nose at her.
“My dear little governess,” he said magnanimously, “ it is a silly language. It had not the forethought to be English,{ which is the most confusing language in the world and therefore the best}  so must be considered a very silly language.” he bowed deeply and hopped out of the room on one hand(the sage was very dexterous), leaving the governess gasping for breath.

Anne Week at Anne's Sister's

Yet Another Period Drama Blog
Oh! What a handsome young man!
“Oh! What else is there to admire? Let me see. He is handsome and rich and he has Colonel in front of his name, what else is there?” Victoria’s giggle was a bit higher pitched than normal.
The Young Matchmaker
Posted by Victoria Wilcox{quote provided by Anne}

Oh! I am so pleased to be writing a blog post! I have never done it before. In fact, yes! I distinctly remember never doing this sort of thing before.

Though how I can remember never doing it if I've never done it I'm not quite sure. Oh dear! Now I've muddled myself.

Any way I'm here to answer a tag over at Anne's sister's blog. Not my sister Anne but Elinor's sister Anne. Or rather my Authoress{meaning she wrote me}

Perhaps I had better tell you a little about myself. I am beautiful and lovely. I love to laugh and I never stop. I think that's all there is to my character but you can't blame me. I'm a make up and proud to be one.

1. How many of the Anne books have you read, and how many of the films have you seen?
All of them I suppose. Unless she has written anymore I don't know about note from Anne-girl: Victoria obviously thinks that Elinor meant books written by me 
2. If someone yanked your hair and called you carrots, what would you do to him?
Oh! What a funny situation, I think I should laugh.

3. What would you do if Josie Pye dared you to walk the ridgepole of a roof?
Why...I think...maybe i would laugh and say "Oh! Miss Pye! I could not possibly! my dress you know! oh! I think I am a bit dizzy just thinking about it! oh! 

4. If you had the opportunity to play any AGG (I'm abbreviating from now on because I am a lazy typist) character in an AGG play, which role would you choose?
I don't know what an AGG character is so I asked Anne and she said that i would make a good Ruby Gilles and that I am very like her.
5. If you were marooned on a desert island, which AGG character would you want to have as a companion? (Anne, Gilbert and Diana are not options.  Let's keep this thing interesting.  Not that they're not interesting.... oh, yay, now the disclaimer to this question is longer than the question itself.  Lovely lovely lovely.)
I don't like to think about boats and things, such nasty, leaky, tippy, places.

6. If there was going to be a new adaptation of the Anne books and you could have any part in making the movie, what would you choose to do? (screenwriting, acting, casting, costume-making are a few possibilities)
Acting! I've always wanted to act something. It sounds so shocking!

7. What are, in your opinion, the funniest AGG book/movie scenes? (choose one from the books and one from the movies)
Oh! I think it was funny when Gilbert went into the pond on his Bicycle. Anne hasn't read the books since she made me up so i have never been exposed to the books.
8. What are, in your opinion, the saddest AGG book/movie scenes? (choose one of each again) 
When Anne and Diana get their dresses all dirty. I cried with vexation and mortification for them. Such a sad part. 

9. Which AGG character would you most like to spend an afternoon with? (again, Anne and Gilbert and Diana are not options for this one--think secondary characters)
That Fred person. He was sooooooooo handsome.

10.  What is your definition of a kindred spirit?
Someone who loves all the things I love and likes to talk and talk and talk.
