Yes that’s exactly my reaction when I got the email from Cision today. And look who else is on the list! Lil’ mee alongside Jackie, Kim, Claire, and Simon. NO WAY! Yes yes I know I never heard of Cision too, but at least their site looks half legitimate, they were able to dig my email address, their email was nicely formatted, and they spell my blog title and address correctly. Also, someone actually checked out the list, got my site, and emailed me asking if I’m on twitter. So there are real people reading! In any way, I feel a bit flattered that their robots picked up my blog and put me in the same list as the big names! (in fact I know all the blogs on the list) Cision boasts of using their in-house methodology. I wonder if my blog got picked up because I mentioned ‘London’ a lot in the past three posts.
Well, at least the list nudged me to write this little post, right? I’m not staying long now, but I do have a couple of books I want to talk about so I’ll come back soon. In news of reading, you might have noticed on my sidebar that I started to read Jane Eyre months ago. Well I’ve been neglecting it a lot (all books really) and so far I’ve only got to around page 150ish, just when Jane meets Mr Rochester on the street when he falls from his horse. Now yesterday I was watching my foodie hero Jamie Oliver on the web, when somehow the newest Jane Eyre movie ads just showed up again and again (the movie was out months ago but I think the DVD is coming up soon hence the ads), and I was panicking everytime the ad showed up, because I hate spoilers! So imagine me frantically trying to mute the ad on my laptop and not see the clip at the same time (MUTE! MUTE! I don’t wanna hear what Mr Rochester is saying to Jane! I don’t want to see them kissing! Aarrgghh!). On a hindsight I probably should’ve just pressed the mute button on my laptop keyboard instead of trying to click the mute button on the small web video window with eyes half closed. Anyway, all that made me start to read the book again today as I want to find out what happens next.
Be back soon!
