My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Seriously Cute Blogger Award

I'm delighted to have been awarded this Seriously Cute award by Golden Eagle. Thank you sooo much.

For this I have to list 5 books/films/TV programs I've read/watched in the past 12 months:

Book & Film: Election by Tom Perrotta. I saw the film and loved it because the psychology of the characters is perfect. When I read the book it was easy flowing, well written and while it had a slightly different ending to the film I loved them both.

TV Programme: The Big Bang Theory. I happened upon this will channel hopping and have become hooked it is a truly Laugh Out Loud experience.

Film: The Adjustment Bureau. Hubby thought this was a superb film. I enjoyed it, too, though I would like to see it again before I pass judgment. 

Book: Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I'm afraid I found the style of writing difficult. It seemed heavy on the telling with great chunks of exposition through dialogue rather than through showing action. Maybe something was lost in the translation, I don't know, but had I not seen the film trailer I would not have ploughed my way to the end of the book. I hope to see the film sometime soon.

So to pass on the award...

BTW Sorry I've been quiet the past few days. I had to make an emergency dash up to my parents to sort out my mother's health problems. After a procession of doctors and district nurses (and some help around the house and shopping and visiting my dad)  I feel much happier that things are better again.
