Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Upon waking up this morning I checked, as I always do, my emails from my phone and saw that I had received a blog award from the wonderful Natalie over at In the Mood. Thank you so much! :)

Now, according to the rules, I have to:

  • Tell everyone something that no one else knows about
  • Link to one of my posts that I personally think best fits the following categories: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful Piece, Most Popular Piece, Most Controversial Piece, Most Surprisingly Successful Piece, Most Underrated Piece, and Most Pride-worthy Piece
  • Pass this award on to seven other bloggers

Something that no one else knows about: By "no one else", I'm  presuming it means no one on blogger. I can't think of anything remotely interesting so it's going to have to be that, ethnicity wise, I am a mixture of English, Irish, and Italian. 

I feel a little embarrassed already about selecting my own blog posts for being "Most Beautiful", "Most Underrated" etc. However, I shall try to do my best! ;D

Most Beautiful Piece: I like to think that my Darling Deborah Blogathon: Memories of The King and I post was rather heart-warming and I think that's the closest to beautiful that my writing can achieve. 

Most Helpful Piece: Maybe my 100 Essential Classic Films posts? Maybe to people who are just starting out in classic film, at any rate. (I really need to finish the series!)

Most Popular Piece: Fortunately, I didn't have to hand pick this. According to blogger, my most popular piece is my Sunday Star - Lucille Ball post from back in September, 2010 with over 15,000 page views. A little ridiculous seeing that it's a pretty rubbish post but courtesy of Lucy's 100th birthday last year, it received an insane amount of hits.

Most Controversial Piece: It's a bit of stretch to call in controversial, but I think that my Top 10 Most Overrated Classics is the only one that really fits the bill.

Most Surprisingly Successful Piece: Films I've Seen a Ridiculous Amount of Times #2: Anne of Green Gables. Obviously Anne is an extremely well loved book/film but I really didn't think anyone would care about my post on it. It was lovely to see how much other people cared about Anne too.

Most Underrated Piece: Lol, every blogger must have those posts that they spend hours working on and are really proud of only to publish them and find that only 1 person, or no one, comments on them. SO MUCH PAIN. One of mine would be Films I've Seen a Ridiculous Amount of Times #1: The Sound of Music. I TALK ABOUT THE LADLE DANCE IN IT. Despite me pouring out far too many of my TSOM feelings into the post, the reason it only garnered two comments was probably because everyone has heard it all before. NO1CURR any more.

Most Pride-worthy Piece: I'm sort of proud of my If Fictional Characters Could Live in Our World... post, despite the fact that it makes hardly any sense.

Now I have to tag 7 bloggers. I'll try not to re-tag anyone!
