One Lovely Blog Award, Pt. 3


The wonderful Joanna @ Starlight on the Western Seas has nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award!  She's pretty new to the blogging world, so give her a warm welcome!

The Rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. List the rules and display the award button.
3. Give seven facts about yourself.
4. Nominate fifteen other bloggers for the award and make sure to notify them.
5. Display the award button on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.

The Award:

1. I've seen One Man, Two Guvnors twice.  The first time at the National Theatre in London with James Cordon and the second was a local performance.  Both were hilarious.



2. My favorite movie adaptation of A Christmas Carol is the one from 1951 starring Alistair Sim as Mr. Scrooge.


3. My work as a librarian is a dream, but you just don't come home with the same caliber of stories as you do in retail.

4. In terms of retail, the Harold Lloyd movie Safety Last is still pretty accurate 92 years later.  If you haven't seen this hilarious movie, you can watch it here!  (One of the funniest retail scenes starts at 27:14.)


5. My favorite genres of music are alt rock, big band swing, and bluegrass.

6. Everyday I wear a ring made out of a spoon.

7. I can't wait for the return of Agent Carter and Galavant this January.  A new tv show that I can't wait to see is The Shannara Chronicles.

  5. Being a librarian sounds awesome! I've always wanted to work at a library. But then I might get caught reading instead of working. . .

    1. I've worked at a few and usually I'm busy enough that that's not much of an issue. :)

    1. She seems like a good person and I'm glad to have met her!

      Yes, a spoon - the handle more specifically. It's very unique looking and much nicer than the ones made of forks.

      It's extremely awesome! I've been at this particular library for 11 months now - how the time flies!
