I don't often repost the rewards I recieve but this one had some fun questions.
The Sunflower Blogger Award The Beautiful Blogger Award was given to me this time by Naomi who has a fairly new blog called Wonderland Creek that you should all check out! There's been a few new period drama blogs popping up recently and it's wonderful, especially as I get older, that younger bloggers are continuing the period drama love!
-What do you think of Pride and Prejudice 1995? I want your honest opinion!
I do really really love P&P95 as it is definitely the best ever P&P adaptation and am a proud member of the P&P95Forever Club! That being said I do sometimes privately lament that everyone now seems to think "Colin Firth" whenever they think of "Mr. Darcy". I think that Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle were very well cast at the time but no matter how good the actors are nothing can really compare to the book and what Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet look like in our own minds when reading it.
-What are you now reading?
The Rescue by Lori Wick, second book in The English Garden series. I'm finding it a bit less interesting and more historically flawed than the first book but still enjoyable.
-What is your least favourite costume from your favourite movie?
Well my favorite period drama would have to be Persuasion (1995) and as much as I like the costumes in that I'd have to say that Anne's dress she wears to the card party toward the end of the film is my least favorite. The dress itself is kind if a pretty style but the gloves and other accesories she wears just make her look like an old lady and it's not my favorite.
-What is your favourite Period Drama hat?
I love Marianne's staw bonnet from Sense & Sensibility 1995 from the scene where Colonel Brandon is reading her poetry. I also love Lizzy Bennet's hat from P&P 1995 and the scene where she's walking with Colonel Fitzwilliam at Rosings.
-Who is the last man (from a Period Drama) in the world who you could ever marry?
Well, I would never marry a scoundrel, but one hero that I could never marry would be Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre. Yes, I do see his merrits but on the other hand he majorly lied to Jane and probably would have gone through with marrying her had not someone stopped him! I can excuse some things but it is hard to trust him or name him a true gentleman when compared to Mr. Knightley, Captain Wentworth and Mr. Thornton.
-Which period drama lady would most like to have as your teacher?
Miss Taylor from Emma? Oh no, I have a better one, Anne Shirley from Anne of Avonlea!
-What is the next thing that you are going to watch? (Or what do you think?)
The Book Theif (2013), but after my weekend off I find that it is still unopened and waiting to be watched. :(
I've also been watching the 1980's Bleak House on Netflix. Only four more episodes to go! It's good by not as enjoyable at the 2005 version.
-What's the colour of your bedroom?
Well, I actually have three bedrooms in various houses at this present moment.
My room at my parent's house has cream walls and I have a lot of burgandy and cream accents. My room at my great-grandmother's house has pale pink walls and is very bright and sunny. My room for the weekends at my aunt's house are black and red, I have a floral comforter that matches perfectly and I have two Doctor Who posters up on my walls. :)
-What do you feel like eating now?
An ice cream sundae with hot fudge, nuts, caramel and whipped cream! I'm so bad.
I've actually got to make dinner soon: sweet & sour meatballs and veggies over rice. Yum!
