Awards, Awards, Awards - My Oscar?!

Gotcha!  No, this post isn't about winning an Oscar, but I do have one question:  

Apparently MGM art director Cedric Gibbons designed the statuette of a naked knight standing on a reel of film gripping a crusader’s sword, but why?  

Anyhoo, to more realistic awards, lovely awards bestowed by lovely people such as Diane over at The Patient Dreamer   To say I'm thrilled to receive this is understating the obvious. Thank you, thank you Diane.

There are stipulations attached to acceptance of this award, so I'm going to direct you to my awards room where I display all my awards plus things about me you may not already be aware of.

Awesome blog award, Francine! Congratulations:) I was just in your award room reading some things about you - I love your sense of humor (humour?)!

Hi "Lady" Gwen,

I know, I'm wicked and too often see the funny side of things that are really quite serious!

You know those incidents when someone trips up a step: honestly, I never dare look anyone in the eye when it happens because I'd end up giggling. So it's always a case of eyes to the floor and bite lip. ;)

Yay, congrats. And now you have a reason to buy a lovely new outfit and shoes!

Congrats Francine. Very versatile are you. I've been storing a few and must do similar!


Francine Howarth said...

Hi Nadja,

Ha ha, and you, too!


Hi Lisa,

Hee hee, well yes, but I thought I might treat myself to the last set of Sharpe DVDs. ;)


Hi Denise,

I upped this one quick before it got lost in the back files. So easy to do that, and it's a bit naughty to say the least... :o

Hello, Francine. Lovely awards; I'm a fellow historical fiction campaigner, like Alberta, far behind on my rounds!

I can't answer the Oscar question, but even as a medievalist, I have always found it very odd.

I look forward to visiting often!
