Current work: Capri medical romance
Listening to: Muse
Reading: next on TBR
I’m channelling Bob Geldof at the moment, i.e. I don’t like Mondays. (At least, not this month.) Last Monday I’m not talking about. Yesterday: missing Paris tickets and broken tumble dryer (with insult added to injury by the way it was dealt with – I have to PROVE it’s less than 10 months old by flashing my receipt, because the serial number isn’t enough, and I might have to pay a whacking great callout charge. Er, not at the price I paid for that dryer…).
I could go into a huge strop here, but instead I’m going to pinch something from my mate Nicola Cornick’s blog. It’s a ‘top ten’ list – but the catch is that there are ten categories and you have to choose my absolute favourites. Song was tricky (because there are others vying for that spot, and do you make a distinction between songs and classical music?), but some of them were absolute ‘oh, yes’ moments. So here are the categories and my answers. (And yes, we ALL know who my favourite actor is. I nearly put Mr Olivier, just to shock everyone, but we know who it is really.) Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to tell me your top ten (either in the comments here or on your blog, but do give me a link so I can come and be nosey).
Book – The Mill on the Floss, George Eliot
Film – It’s a Wonderful Life
TV programme – Life on Mars
