Liebster Award

I still don’t understand these awards things. However, it’s lovely – and I am, for once, being genuine here – to be noticed. Yesterday Oana Fagaras nominated me for something called The Liebster Award. As usual, I’ll answer the questions, but I won’t nominate anyone. If you want to do it, go nuts.

Anyway, thank you, Oana.

Here you are:

  1. Why did you start a blog?

It is my gift to humanity.

I’ve actually been revisiting my old blog. Ten years ago today I wrote:

I went into Central with Genre and picked up the new promo CDs. They look swish and going to the top of Centrepoint made me feel successful (still waiting to be paid though…) By way of celebration, we went to the pub. Brittany Murphy came in and checked me out. Considering it.

 

  1. Do you believe in soul mates?

You have to believe in the soul first.

  1. “You aren’t wealthy until you have something that money can’t buy”. Do you agree?

Damn, modern living. Everyone’s obsessed with wealth and competition. If you’re having a good time, who cares?

 

  1. What’s your definition of heaven?

A gay club in Charring Cross.

  1. Your favorite TV Show.

Tough question. I would say The X-Files (scary, funny, gripping), but then Breaking Bad…I dunno. Isn’t that a little boring? Then there’s The O.C. Well, obviously it’s shit, but it’s so addictive. It’s like the James Patterson of TV. And who doesn’t love Mischa Barton, eh?

You know she used to own a clothes shop in Spitalfields, a mere five minutes from where I work? The Mischa Barton Boutique. I never went in, but sometimes I’d stand outside, watching her folding t-shirts with her shaky drug hands. Memories…

Where was I? Oh, best TV show… It’s a tough one. Ultimately, they’re ruined by greedy networks dragging them out too long. Dexter, for example. First season is almost perfect (a superb adaptation of a poorly written novel with a great hook, IMHO), but from then on it’s downhill – and that’s a steep decline, my friends. Or Battlestar Galactica. Peaks at the start of Season 3 and then drops off a little (although, in fairness, that suffered not because of length, but because of the *SPOILER ALERT* deus ex machina ending).

You know what show I really fucking love, something that’s never dipped in quality and just gets better and better? Banshee. I fucking love Banshee. Really high level trash. Yeah, Banshee. Or Revenge, simply for the unquestionable duo of Nolan Ross’s wardrobe and Emily VanCamp’s face.

  1. What do you think has the most impact: words or actions?

My superpower is the ability to ruin a person’s day with one sentence. However, I also possess a pretty good left hook (#southpaw). Situation dictates which one will be the most effective.

  1. Do you remember the moment when you decided who you wanna be? Share it with me.

Know thyself? No thyself, more like. I’ll keep you posted…

  1. What’s your biggest fear?

Leaving nothing behind when I’m gone and Colin Farrell’s moustache in True Detective.

  1. Do you think it’s important for humans to spend some time alone with their thoughts?

I think it’s important for humans to actually have thoughts in the first place.

  1. Have you ever thought about starting a Vlogging Youtube Channel?

Is that some sort of 50 Shades rough sex porno thing? “I’ll vlog you ‘til you bleed, Ana!” In which case, yes. Yes I have.

  1. Would you go on a ” Saving the World” trip if you knew you would never have the chance to see your family again?

Like Bruce Willis in Armageddon? Fuck that. When the apocalypse comes, I’ll be looting the nearest Argos for some Nike Airs and a PS4. My family will help me fence them.

That’s all. Tomorrow I’ll give you countdown of top 10 Pret A Mangers to eat at in Central London (scored on Evidence of Rodent Infestation, Banker to Non-Banker Ratio and Romance Factor). See you then, kids.

      1. Oh wow, really?! I haven’t seen that, is it part of the film series with The Bourne Legacy ? I adore Josh Bowman too- despite everything, I’ve got a serious soft spot for Daniel Grayson

      2. He is NOT. He completely redeems himself in series 4 – I love the little moments he has with Em. I think I loved them together so much in season 1 and I think Emily always had a soft spot for him- even after the shooting fiasco.
        And HEY! I live in England! 😂

      3. He DIED for her! And he WAS totally a dick in 2&3, but he had reason to be- not saying it was justifiable or anything. But I feel like he really did learn his lesson and beneath it all, he was just a genuinely good guy trying to find his way.
        Well I moved to England so I had to learn how to be English 😂😂😂😅

      4. Mmmmmmzzz Mathis never really resonated with me. I was always rooting for Daniel because he was a good guy. Before all that mess, when Em first met him in that bar, he was just a young guy with a dream and a awful set of parents. He looks out for Charlotte when everyone seems to have forgotten about her and his little epilogue during his death was just beautiful. Even Emily tells him that their relationship wasn’t all a lie. He tries his best to do right my Margaux when she announces her pregnancy, even though she tries to push him away and eventually, EVENTUALLY he stands up to that bitch Victoria- admitting that they’re all cowards and that he’s done running from the truth

      5. All in all, Daniel Grayson was set as a changed man before he died to save Emily Thorne and it’s a damned shame that he didn’t get to live that second chance

      6. He was drunk and angry and he had lied to him about everything- it didn’t make it right but you can see he was in a bad place.
