Nominated for the Liebster Award again :D

And I am honored again. You like me. You really LIKE me!

Films and Things

It never ceases to shock, stun and amaze me that people actually read the crap I write on this blog! What stuns me even more is that they like the crap that I write on this blog!! I’ve just been nominated for a second time, pop over and have a look at Senorita Still Standing 🙂
