Tagged - I'm It! - 21

So, first, the rules:

a. Link to the person who tagged you. That's Christine d'Abo over at ...fantasies unleashed.
b. Post the rules on your blog. Et voila - the rules.
c. Write six random things about yourself.
d. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
e. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment at their blog.
f. Let your tagger know when your entry is up.

1 - I'm trapped in Sherwood Forest - please don't rescue me!

My very favorite thing - a love triangle, between Sir Guy of Gisborne, Marion and Robin Hood.

Robin of Locksley played by Jonas Armstrong

Gisborne played by Richard Armitage

2 - I've been waiting 35 years for Prince Caspian to be released.

I'm nearly out of my mind! When it comes to waiting for movies to come out that I'm dying to see, I'm worse than a kid waiting for Christmas Eve.

This looks awesome.

Prince Caspian played by Ben Barnes

3 - I love swords. But not just any swords. I love medieval two-handed longswords wielded by hulking warriors.

Shown above is a replica William Wallace claymore sword.

This is a replica Viking sword.

4 - I love sword fights. Yeah, baby.

Gerard Butler as Beowulf in Beowulf and Grendel

Ciaran Hinds as Brian de Bois-Guilbert fights Steven Waddington as Ivanhoe in the 1997 miniseries Ivanhoe. This fight rocks.

Liam Neeson as Rob Roy fights Tim Roth as Archibald Cunningham in Rob Roy
This sword fight is one of the best - if not the best.

5 - I love my large husband.

6 - I adore romantic paintings with knights and beautiful medieval maidens.

Like La Belle Dame Sans Merci by Frank Dicksee

And Chivalry, also by Frank Dicksee

And God Speed by Edmund Blair Leighton

And now - a-tagging I will go, a-tagging I will go...

I CANNOT WAIT to see Prince Caspian together with my son. I still love (and reread) the battered paperback set of the Narnia Chronicles that I received from a great-aunt for my 9th birthday, with the wish that I would love them as she had. Not only did I, but now my own son does too.
