A Century's Worth of Favorites.

It's 2010, see? How cool is that? If you take 2010 and subtract 1910, what do you get? That's right, kiddos-- one hundred years, aka a century's worth of movies for me (or you, or that guy) to enjoy and discuss.

I know, I know..."What about The Great Train Robbery, made in 1903?" Or, "What about The Horse in Motion, everyone's favorite flicker from 1878??" No thanks. I'm not including those because 1) I haven't seen them, and 2) I have a hunch they wouldn't be my favorites.

So here we are, back at the start. Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule has created a list --this list-- of favorite films from the past 100 years. Being the idea-thief that I am, I thought it'd be fun to try a list of my own. And you know what?-- it was. :)

Awards-- Now with 20 percent more random images!

Well, well, well. Seems it's overdue, this new post. Let's see...

A while ago, before I became a lame blogger/procrastinator extraordinaire, I was nominated for a Kreativ (it's s'posed to be spelled like that-- promise) Blogger Award. And with that came some rules...

1. Thank the one who gave it to you.

2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
---Hm, I don't really want to...but this counts for something, yeah? Aw heck...

3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
---Well. Obviously.

4. Name 7 things about you that people think are interesting.*
---I was born on a Friday the 13th.

---When I'm bored, I play a game involving Sally Field movies and their titles. It rocks. And you should ask about it. :D
---I constantly confuse Greer Garson and Germaine Greer. Just the names. Still, makes me seem awfully silly.
---I have this recurring dream where I'm Little Edie and developing alopecia. But I totally rock the head scarves.
---Fran Dresher is totally following me on Twitter.***

---A sheynim dank dir im pupik. Which, translated literally, means "put it in your bellybutton." Though it could also mean "when I went through my Babs phase I realllly wanted to be Jewish."
---I'm a pathological liar. **

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Blogs/Bloggers.

Can do, will do, did.

*I don't guarantee any of this to be interesting. Mainly, they're just facts about me I like.
**Meh. Kidding. Let's play the accordion? :)
***So what if she's following, like 9000 people. I count. ;)
