BLOGATHON… These Diamond Bond guys are forever in the final day of the You Knew My Name: The Bond Not Bond Blogathon

 

It’s time for the last of the Bond-ing posts and puns unless your time zone thinks different…

 

Final day and final posts of those actors whose versatile non Bond movies and TV left us shaken and stirred in no particular order Connery, Moore, Lazenby, Craig, Dalton and Brosnan.

 

His Name Is James Bond, Onyx BlackScale

 

It’s the last day for the blogathon with our lovely sextette of brains and brawn and it’s been a blast. This blogathon has gone superquickly. I am not so secretly hoping for a few of you to add some late posts so it can go on a wee bit longer… I’ve enjoyed every minute of reading your wonderful posts on those Bond actors we love and cherish like the British – and Australian – national treasures they are representing Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales and England again.

As thanks for reading and writing these reviews, I’m giving everyone two early Christmas presents, both of which you will find at the top of this post. The first one is a banner that I made with the others. It was then replaced with a more professional looking one – but I just love the picture. The other is a video that features our sextette doing what Bond does best be it puns, bad guys and keeping the British end up with a bevvy of Bond babes.

I would like to thank everyone who entered for all your wonderful high calibre posts. There are so many that I want to read again and again. I loved reading every one of them and I’m hoping that you will join Gabriela for the You Knew My Name: The Bond Not Bond Blogathon sequel sometime next year… and if you are like me you probably have been inspired reading those posts on;

Day 1

Day 2.

Finally, I’d like to thank my fellow Bond girl Gabriela for being my partner in crime and for her never-ending support. And for having a bit of a crush on Dalton, otherwise, this blogathon probably wouldn’t have happened. But knowing someone – you know who you are – has a similar type crush on Craig, and I have wanted to tribute Connery in this way it really was a case of sooner than later. So do tune in tomorrow and if I get a lot of posts overnight I’ll do a bonus Bond day otherwise look back here…

Now on with the action and on with the show…
