Two Tags + I think Rae is sane again (for now)

(And Rae is also still terrible at titles.)
(Because Arthur Clennam tipping his hat, why not?)
Hello, hello, lovely people. I am finished with school, and I've had a couple days to relax before life gets crazy again. 
First of all, I just have to say, I have so many perfectly lovely followers. I love you all. Your comments on my last awfully insane post were all so sweet! I apologize again for the mess that was. I believe I have recovered from that. 😆

Now I have a couple tags, and if those don't give you enough random details about my life lately, or if they don't make a ridiculously long post, I'll give you some random tidbits (like I began to attempt last time). 

So...To begin. 

The Four Fictional Characters Tag
Thank you for tagging me, Cordy

The Rules:
1. Link back to the person who tagged you
2. List four fictional characters (use pictures if you want! They can be from movies or books) and, if you like, describe what they're like and why you believe they relate to you
3. Tag a few other blog people! Three, or four, or even twenty. :) Share the fun!
Be sure to let them know you've tagged them!

Well, 1 is done. On to 2:

1. Jo March (Little Women)

I always used to feel like I was a lot like Jo. I have three sisters, and when we'd try to figure out who was most like whom, I was always Jo. I'm not as much like Jo now as I always felt I was then (this was years ago) but some reasons are:
-We both like to write.
-We were both tomboy-ish (I have become less so, but I was rather)
-We're both very "obstinate, headstrong girls"--
"Hey, that's my quote! Did you just allude outside of the literary work you were discussing?"
Yes, I did. Hush.
-We both have a strong desire for independence. 

2. Polly Milton (An Old-Fashioned Girl)
(Yes, that's two Alcott in a row. H'm.)
Well, the obvious reason is that I'm a rather old-fashioned sort of girl. But there's a little more.
Polly never really fit in. Her old-fashioned morals kept her from doing so. I can relate to that a lot. I have pretty high moral standards for today's age, and it's made it difficult to "fit in" sometimes. 
But the other part is, Polly created her own world that made people want to fit into hers, which is beautiful. She found the people that could fit in with her, instead of trying to fit in with others. 
I've found good friends (including so many of you lovely people reading this) and we all fit together and keep our high standards.
(P. S. If you haven't read An Old-Fashioned Girl DO SO NOW. Thank you. Good day.)

3. Anne Shirley
It was coming, wasn't it? What can I say.
I always related to Anne. We both have vivid imaginations that can take us out of reality a bit too far. We both like writing, but that isn't the main focus for either of us, though it has been at times. She is good with children, so am I. She's in love with Gilbert Blythe, so am--well, I like him A LOT anyway. 
(Okay so now I'm remembering, I'm pretty sure I've given a description of why Anne and I are similar before, in another tag. Cause last time, I said "And we both like Gilbert Blythe" or something. H'm.)
We're both ambitious and focused on education. 
We both have a quick, hot temper and you bet I would have gotten as mad as she at Gilbert and Mrs. Lynde when they said that stuff. 

4. Lady Catherine De Bourgh

(This a joke, you think. Rae isn't saying she's like Lady Catherine. It can't be.)
(Why ever not? I am Lady Catherine De Bourgh.)
(Yes, we know, you say. That's the problem.)
(Well indeed it is true! She is indeed saying she is like me!)

Well, what can I say? Sometimes I can sound very remarkably like her. My Lady Catherine impression is actually quite impressive--almost as impressive as the lady herself. (Ha, ha, 'twas a joke, Lady Catherine, relax.)
Also, I like telling people what to do. And sitting so much that it shocks people to see me walk (another joke; I am very fond of walking). And also putting Mr. Collins in his place. I love it when she does that.
(So, yes, my dears, that last was a joke. But I adore Lady Catherine.)
(I am quite put out.)

Well, that was good fun. Thanks so much for tagging me, Cordy! 
I tag:
(Sorry if you've already been tagged; don't expect me to keep track of that. I'll not tag you if Cordy did, but other than that--)
 And whoever else wants, to, PLEASE feel free to say I tagged you! Have fun!
(Also, y'all, I'm not commenting to tell you I've tagged you; I'm too lazy. I think y'all all read my blog at least sometimes...So if you read this, you get tagged; if not, sorry... :/)

The next tag:

Farm Lassie tagged me for the Liebster Award! I've been tagged for this before, but the questions are different every time, so I'm doing it again! Thank you so much for tagging me!

The rules:
Link back to the person who tagged you
Answer the eleven questions
Tag eleven bloggers and let them know
Ask your tagged bloggers eleven questions

Farm Lassie's Questions

1. What is your favorite type of weather?

-Ooh, I'd have to say about 70 degrees (FAHRENHEIT, y'all non-Americans don't freak out!) And sunny. Like, nice Spring weather.
2. What is your favorite music genre?
-Maybe showtunes (songs from musicals), Disney songs, or classical music.

3. Hard candy or gummy candy?
-That's a fun question! I'll say gummy. I don't have patience for hard candy.

4. What is your favorite color?
(Photo by me, last summer, and it has appeared on my blog before. As, umm, is the case with both the previous two.)
5. Tolkein or C.S. Lewis?
-I've read a little of both, and I'd have to sayyyy...
What kind of a question is that?
It's also been a while since I've read either of them. Hmmm...
C. S. Lewis
6. What is your favorite period drama film?
-A few of you will be able to answer this right away. 
Pride and Prejudice 1995!!!

7. Do you have a carefree or work-filled summer ahead?
-Well, not exactly "work"-filled, but definitely very busy!! Not carefree. Sadly.

8. If you could choose any country to go, where would it be?
-England! No, Canada, P.E.I. Ummm...England. Bath, Jane Austen country. 
The Circus, Bath, UK. I can picture Anne from Persuasion running down this street here!!!:
9. Would you rather go by horse-drawn wagon, boat, train or plane?
-Wait, to the said country, or in general? I've always wanted to ride in a horse-drawn wagon, but a plane is most practical for going to England.
10. What is your favorite sea animal?
-Ummm, a seahorse.
11. What do you pull out of the fridge when you're feeling down (comfort food)?
-My favourite comfort food is chocolate but I don't keep it in the fridge. Does that count?

Thanks so much for the tag! 
I'm out of time now. Have a lovely week, y'all!

Welllllll, look who hasn't posted in over a month? And is also sadly behind in reading and commenting on all of your blogs?

This is getting ridiculous, isn't it, my dears? Most of my posts in the last, like, six months have been "sorry I haven't had time for blogging!"

All I can say is, I'm sorry; I've been dreadfully caught up in school and work and directing a play and I have no time for anything it seems. 

Soooo...A few random tidbits? 
-I just started scrolling through my reading list and LADIES I'M SORRY I haven't been reading and commenting on your blogs, here I come, loooong reading list.
-I just realized that could take a LONG time and I have to study for a history exam.
-My stress level just went up.
-Maybe I should quit the blogging world.
-This is not how my "few random tidbits" was supposed to go.
posts that I am going to read.
-I'm done with this post, I've wasted your time long enough.
-Don't take it personally if I don't comment on every post!!!

(I sincerely apologize for this absolute mess of a blog post. Perhaps I'll make a decent one soon? No promises whatsoever.)

UPDATE: I have calmed down a bit and please, I hope you all just chuckle or shake your head over this disastrous post. I shall endeavor to give you a decent post soon so you don't all have a low opinion of my blogging skills. :p
Annnnd I just finished reading the 25 posts, and commenting on most of them. Whew! My comments are rather short, yes, but I think you'll all be dears and understand...yes?
