I'll Give you a Topic: Peanut Butter. Neither pea, nor butter, discuss.

On The Pioneer Woman's website she says:

"My Name Is Ree

I'm a desperate housewife. I live in the country. I channel Lucille Ball, Vivien Leigh, and Ethel Merman. Welcome to my frontier!"

I can't help but wonder, who do you feel like you channel? In writing, in life?  Does it change with the occasion? 
I have answers for myself, but I want to hear what you all say first!  Drop a comment and let's discuss!


  1. Oooooo. Good question. In writing, I tend toward the sad and melancholy. In life, I'm organized and zen. Huh. I don't think I channel anyone...maybe the question should be who do you THINK I channel? Eh? (like I how turned that around?)

  2. I've always had a longing to be like Judy Garland... only without the drinking and drugs and show business and what have you. So who do I channel? No clue. Sadly the first thing that comes to mind is Peggy Bundy. Not that I'm like her in any way (I hope not at least) but that's what popped into my head. Weird. Every day I'm more and more like my mom. Which isn't a bad thing. Just kind of weird for me. Ask my sister- she'll vouch.

    As for Peanut Butter- I don't mind that it doesn't come from Peas or is churned or anything. It still tastes YUMMY! I'm a creamy girl not crunchy.

  3. Was an interesting article, thank you..

  4. Tawyna, good turn around! I have no idea who you would channel. Perhaps if I could find someone with an excellent sense of style, a flare for writing reality in a raw and beautiful way, and a love of homegrown food. Perhaps someone should channel you? Hmm.

  5. Maggie: Ha! on the Peggy Bundy! Cheers on the Judy Garland, I just wanted to sing like her.

    I envision myself channeling Audrey Hepburn, at least that's who I would like to channel. I think I'm more of a Hawkeye Pierce channeler.(it's my blog, I can totally do fictional characters) Sans the women of course, but the sarcasm and humor. Perhaps a mix of Audrey and Hawkeye... hmm.

    Anyone else want to throw something out there?

  6. You are RIGHT! Someone SHOULD channel me. Ha! (and, um, thanks. That was sweet...)

    (And Hawkeye Hepburn is cracking me up...)

    Can I channel the whole movie My Girl Friday? That is my official choice.

  7. You can totally channel an entire movie! That's an entirely new discussion.. hm.

  8. I Love Hawkeye/Hepburn- though the combination oddly makes me think of Kathryn Hepburn which I never felt like she was very nice. Maybe she just always played cranky characters. Anyway- you're nothing like her. Much more like Hawkeye. Good job pin pointing it. :) Maybe for Halloween (or just an any ol' time party) we should do a channeling party. Dress up as who you channel- or perhaps would like to channel. Ponder it.

  9. Oh, but Maggie! The Philadelphia Story. She was so brilliant in that...
