Forgive the tardiness of this post, but I am once again humbled to receive another award from my blogging peers, this time it is the One Lovely Blog award.

I don’t know if my site can be described as “lovely” but I am grateful to Medievalotaku for thinking so and for this latest honour he has bestowed upon me. In accepting this award one must honour the following rules in both receiving and making their own nominations:


  • You must thank person who nominated you and include a link to their blog
  • You must list the rules and display the award
  • You must add 7 facts about yourself
  • You must nominate 15 other bloggers


Having responded to many of these award conditions in the past, I should be thankful that the requirement on the personal fact sharing front is only seven yet I fear I may have already exhausted everything I care to share with you all.

But I shall try:


  1. I really hate it when they squish down the end credits of a TV show as I am trying to read the identity of a certain cast member in it. That and credits going too fast are anathema to me.
  1. On my Blu-ray shelf there is just about room for two more discs before all the space has been used up. If my Christmas present list for this year is fulfilled then it is game over.
  1. I suffer from mild narcolepsy. No matter how much sleep I get the night before I will always drift off during the day – usually when I am trying to watch a review disc!
  1. Case in point – this entry was typed 17 minutes after the above one as I dozed off while thinking about what to put next!
  1. Whilst I own three guitars – a Fender Stratocaster Jimi Hendrix re-issue, a Fender Squier Stratocaster and a Sigma-Martin acoustic – none of them have been played in well over a decade.
  1. Way back when I was younger I attended the TV recording of an early Channel 4 sitcom called Dream Stuffing, featuring a groundbreaking openly gay male character that wasn’t a mincing stereotype. At that age I didn’t know even know what gay meant unlike kids of today who seem to have gender confusion issues almost straight from the womb…
  1. I have never seen The Lion King.


Sorry for that dull list there but all of the exciting and revelatory stuff can be found in the somewhere in the body of my previous award acceptance answers.

  1. You’ve never seen The Lion King? Outrage! No I;m just joking with you. Congrats on the award. And thank you for nominating me, I’ll give you my facts now, and I hope they aren’t boring.
    1. One of my biggest pet hates is when someone leaves a door open and it continuously bangs.
    2. Lasagne is one of my favourite things to eat.
    3. My man crush is Henry Cavill.
    4. I am currently reading the book Gone Girl, which is amazing and I look forward to seeing the film.
    5. My television guilty pleasure is Strictly Come Dancing.
    6. My eyes are a blue-green colour.
    7. Next year, my blog will have been going for five years.


  2. I have only seen bits and pieces of the Lion King. Disney movies aren’t my thing, possibly because I am not a fan of musicals. I feel your storage pain. This Xmas I may have to purge some DVDs from my collection to make room for future purchases.


    1. I don’t mind Disney or musicals but for some reason I missed it in the 90’s and never felt to prioritise it since.

      I could never get rid of my DVDs, unless they are ones I’ve double dipped with a Blu-ray version. :/

  3. Nice list! I don’t recall any of those facts on prior award posts. I also hate it when the credits quickly fly by. What is the point of that? I suppose that one can pause it if one has the DVD, but still!


    1. Thanks!

      I really struggled to come up with something new that wasn’t too personal or embarrassing to reveal, or conversely so pointlessly dull or trivial. :/
