Guess Whose Birthday It Is?!!!!

Ladies (and gentlemen), LADIES (and gentleman), GUESS WHOSE BIRTHDAY IT IS?



Of course I have to wish this absolutely incredible authouress a happy would-be 142nd birthday. 
Of course.

Last year I had the brilliant idea to make a dinner like the one Anne made for Charlotte E. Morgan in Anne of Avonlea (which turned out dreadfully, in case you're wondering), but this year, a blog post will suffice because I've been at school all day. 

You're my absolute favourite authouress (and I spell things the way you do, which Blogger doesn't like), and your books are works of pure beauty. I adore them. And therefore you. 
Happy birthday.

Another Period Drama Tag

Hello lovely people! I'm afraid I have been long absent from my blog; it has been another three weeks since I last posted. My apologies. I have been rather busy with school and life. Also I have been rather lacking in inspiration, and so I was thrilled when Rachel tagged me, but it has taken me a week-and-a-half since she tagged me to get around to it. 😩 (Note: these emoticons are new, and I haven't just missed them for the past 11 months...right? :)

Anyway...perhaps we should get on to the tag now.

1. What's your favourite Period Drama movie?
-Pride and Prejudice 1995. I wonder if anyone reads my blog and doesn't know this yet! Haha.

2. What's your favourite Period Drama series?
-Okay, so can someone explain to me the differences between movies, series, and mini-series?

3. Which Period Drama do you dislike the most?

4. Anne of Green Gables or Little Dorrit?
-How do I say this without shocking my audience?

5. Your favourite Period Drama dresses? 
-Oooh, that's a fun question. Here come some pictures.

6. Who's your favourite Period Drama character? (Okay, pick at least five)
-This is so hard. Let's see...I'm going with favourite main character heroines, okay? 😊
Elizabeth Bennet, Amy Dorrit, Elinor Dashwood, Margaret Hale, and Emma Woodhouse.
I think. I could easily change my mind at any time! :)

7. If you could join a royal ball, which dress would you go in? (Pick a Period Drama dress)
-Ooooohhh...So, I haven't actually seen The Young Victoria, but I LOVE this dress.

8. What's your favourite Jane Austen movie?
-Pride and Prejudice 1995. :)

9. Downton Abbey of Call the Midwife?
-I haven't actually seen either one. 
Come, now, don't gasp so loudly, everyone! I can hear you from here!

10. Sybil Crawley, Jenny Lee, Emma Woodhouse or Marian of Knighton?

11. Which couple of a Period Drama do you like the most? (Pick at least four)
-Oh, good, I can pick multiple couples!

"At least four."

12. At last, which Period Drama villain do you like the most?
-Oh, boy. Define villain. Define like. Hahaha. This is tough. Okay, I'll go with the Sheriff of Nottingham, with the understanding that "like" in this case means I like watching him and I find him amusing betimes. Also it was almost pathetic how predictable it always was when he lost--which was every time. 
(Disclaimer: I have only seen the first 2 seasons of BBC Robin Hood.)

That was fun, Rachel, thank you so much for tagging me!!!

A random note: 
I created a favourite blogs page. :)
