Follow Friday - In Terminator 2, Sarah Connor Says There Are 214 Bones in a Normal Human Skeleton

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - Due to technical difficulties, there is no featured blogger this week.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: If you can step into one characters shoes (in a book) and be them for a day who would it be and why? Also if you want to be creative what scene?

I would like to be Ged, more commonly known to those in the story as Sparrowhawk, from the Earthsea series. The only trouble is I don't know when in his life I would choose. Le Guin's story about Ged covers his whole life from the age of eleven or twelve through to when he is an old man who has lived a full life and spent all of his magic, and everything in between. I suppose I would choose a day from The Tombs of Atuan, possibly after Ged has recovered the missing half of the Ring of Erreth-Akbe and given Tenar her name back, but before he has returned to Havnor in triumph. This is the moment in Ged's life when he has reached the pinnacle of his career, but before he is burdened with being thought of as a legend rather than a man. The few days Le Guin describes of Ged's journey with Tenar - traveling through the countryside, asking friendly farmers for meals and shelter, sleeping in barns, and healing animals, all while on an unhurried trek to return the most important artifact in history to its rightful place - seems to me like it would be the time to be him.
