I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award by the great film blog The Flim Culb. I feel honoured and a little embarrassed. This is the second blog award I have been nominated for (the first was the Versatile Blogger).
Thank you so much to The Flim Culb. It’s a great film site. And no, I haven’t misspelled the name. You should head over there now and check it out.
The Liebster Award is intended to bring attention to new or newish blogs that don’t yet have a large following. I need to answer some questions about my favourite things, and nominate other blogs for the award. There’s a nice blog post here explaining its origins and rules. The main idea, as with other blogging awards such as The Versatile Blogger Award, is to recognise blogs you admire, and to pay it forward.
So let me nominate some blogs for The Liebster Award right now.
Now, to answer the questions.
My Favourite Character
Too many to choose over the years from books and films, but i’m going to pick a real-life character, Mr Lysaght, who owned the corner shop where I grew up. My brother made a short film all about this wise, wonderful and eccentric man, which you can see here.
My Favourite Meal
The kind you share with friends.
My Favourite Sport
To play? Tiddlywinks. To watch? Because the Olympics are on right now I’m obsessed with female figure skating: there’s something about attractive, bendy young women that appeals.
My Favourite Memory
My Favourite Holiday
This coming Monday, January 24th, is Beer Can Appreciation Day
My Favourite Quote
From John Banville’s The Book of Evidence:
“I have never really got used to being on this earth. Somethings I think our presence here is due to a cosmic blunder, that we were meant for another planet altogether, with other arrangements, and other laws, and other, grimmer skies. I try to imagine it, our true place, off on the far side of the galaxy, whirling and whirling. And the ones who were meant for here, are they out there, baffled and homesick, like us? No, they would have become extinct long ago. How could they survive, these gentle earthlings, in a world that was meant to contain us?
My Favourite Song
Can I pick two?
My Favourite Place
The inside of my head
My Favourite Item of Clothing
I usually go out on a Friday in my favourite suit
My Favourite Website
So to all the bloggers, I have nominated, I now ask the same questions:
1. Character (could be in film, literature, theatre, real life…. anything you like)
3. Sport (to play or simply watch)
5. Holiday (Christmas, Easter, Halloween… you know the rest)
9. Item of Clothing
