Jonathon Crombie~also known as Gilbert Blythe

Everyone, I have some sad and surprising news. Jonathan Crombie, the actor who became the perfect Gilbert Blythe for us, is dead.  I found out yesterday that he died on April 15th, of a brain hemorrhage.

I'm not one to cry over actors' deaths, because I know they aren't actually the character I love, but I was still very surprised and saddened. He was only 48!  I only hope Jonathan Crombie gave his life to Jesus before he died. 

When I was reading about his death some family members said in the article that he always loved his role of Gilbert Blythe and would even answer to the name of Gilbert, when called so by fans or such. So sweet! It sounds like he was a lot like the character he played, temperate and personality wise.

Sadly, beside the fact that he died, this also means my secret hopes of a Rilla of Ingleside sequel are squashed. :(

So, without further ado, here's a tribute to my favorite hero EVER,  Gilbert Blythe, brought to life by Jonathan Crombie. He was a talented actor who will always and forever be Gilbert Blythe to me. 

Anne and Gil...


the first meeting!

Or say "I'm soory!"

Like, seriously, Anne, what was wrong with you. Gilbert is the best guy ever.


The wink....;)

I will always love Gilbert Blythe. Thank your for portraying him so well, Jonathan. <3

"Chewie....we're home."

So, I don't know if many of my readers are Star Wars fans, but..........I am. haha
The newest Star Wars Force Awakens teaser trailer came out recently and oh,oh,oh, oh, OH, it was AMAZING!!!!!
Everyone. Listen Up.

It has Han and Chewie!!!
Han and Chewie!!!!!

I was kind of fangirling over it when watching this the first time.
Kind of? Okay. I was completely fangirling. 
Anyways, it's so cool. Watch it. And then please comment so we can talk about it. :)

(oh, and, a quick note-I don't think the poster above is official. I think it's just a fan made poster, but it's really cool, so I included it. :))

Randomly Random Tag by Miss Naomi Bennet

Hello, all! I have been tagged by Naomi of Wonderland Creek for her new tag she created. It's random and fun and nonsensical and I love the questions she concocted.

The rules for the tag are:
~ Paste the button onto your blog post.
~ Leave a new list of questions (or just pass on the question list you answered) and tag a few people of your random choice (and say why you tagged them, if you have time!) (Be original and nonsensical in your question-creativity - make the blogging world a cheerful place :-) And be disastrously random.)
Now for the fun...
~Write down three facts about you - one of them is WRONG. Let your commenters guess in the comments which one is wrong (and tell them in the comments after a while)
~Answer the questions of the person who tagged you - make it all super random and interesting :-D

Allrighty, first off here are my 3 facts-one of which is NOT true. You must guess which that one is.

1) I  cut my hair into a shoulder length bob.
2) I can't stand mashed potatoes.
3) I find the below picture hilariously funny

How I wish for an outfit like this...


Are there flowers in your bedroom?

No, unless you count a tiny little bunch of dried out flowers. I love flowers though, so if someone gave me some I would definitely keep them in my room.

Who was your first - really first - (fictional) crush?
Hmm. My very first? I'll have to think about that one.....
Perhaps Ricky from the I Love Lucy show. I was about 10 years old and had such a crush on him that I wanted to marry a Cuban when a grew up-like, a Cuban who looked like him and sang like him, of course.
I'm so embarrassed. 

Thank you for summing up my feelings on this subject, Ricky.

What is, in your opinion, the prettiest Little House Book cover?
Mmm.....such a hard question....probably Little Town on the Prairie. It's also one of my favorites to read out of the series.

On pictures, do you smile with your teeth or without?
I always smile with teeth. I think my closed smile can look a little strange sometimes, haha.
Joan Fontaine is soooo pretty! Look at her hair!  Have you seen her in any movies?

In 'Return to Cranford' Miss Matty gets a turban. What do you think of her in a turban?
I don't like regency turbans. On anyone. And especially on Miss Matty. True, she looks adorable in anything, but bonnets suit her better and I just love regency bonnets.

Did you get fooled this year on April the 1st?
Mmmmm....nope. Well, I was momentarily fooled by the addition of a "music" button on Youtube videos, but other than that I can't think of anything.

This is a random post after all so you get a bunch of random pictures. :)

Do you think it's rude when girls re-do their whole hairstyle in public?
No, I can't think of a time I was ever annoyed by a girl re-doing her hair. Ponytails and buns and headbands all need adjusting from time to time. :) I know I personally feel like I touch and check my hair waaayyy too much but my hair is pretty hard to deal with sometimes so...
am I going off topic? Yes. I am. So sorry.

What's your least favourite song in 'The Sound of Music?'
Probably "Climb Every Mountain". It's a pretty song but I don't care for the nun's voice very much. And it's kind of long...

Do you chew your inside cheeks when you're thinking?
Haha, yes, I do, but I try not to....

Your how-many-ienth post is this?
If you haven't seen Newsies you are missing out on something amazing.
This will be my 81st post! Hmmm.....I need to be thinking of something special for my 100th post....any ideas? A  Q&A  perhaps?

What's your favourite Dickens movie?
Little Dorrit is my absolute, ultimate, favorite  Dickens movie. 
Unless they make a version of A Tale of Two Cities with Tom Hiddleston as Sydney Carton. Then I may have to change my mind.
I can't even begin to imagine how perfect he'd be as Sydney Carton. Please, oh, please, oh please...

What should you be doing right now?
Zip-lining Robin Hood-style with an archery bow, of course.

Just kidding, I should be ironing some clothes.

Do it. ;-)
If I must..... :)

Thank you SO much for this fun tag, Naomi!
I tag anyone who wishes to fill out this tag! Even if it's just in comments. (I hope you don't mind, Naomi!)

Here are my questions:

1) Favorite period drama movie?
2) What color looks the best on you, clothing-wise?
3) If you had $100 you had to spend selfishly (e.g. an outfit you don't really NEED or a book collection that is available at the library but you just want to own it) what would you get?
4) Do you dream in color or black and white?
5) What's your easiest hairstyle that you use when in a hurry?
6)  What is your middle name? (if you don't mind sharing)
7) Favorite vintage celebrity?
8) What are you looking forward to most this week?
9) What was one of your favorite moments this past week?
