Charming and I don’t watch TV.
(Well, except for our DVD’s of The Cosby Show, The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie).
And it’s truly quite wonderful for us.
I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way!
Well….. until I saw this: The Complete Jane Austen on PBS.
Now I wish I had PBS for the next two months!
After all, how can I call myself a hopeless romantic and miss all of these movies???
I guess I’ll just have to save up my personal money and eventually buy them all on DVD.
Or just maybe…..
(Psst! Hey, Love?)
(Are you there?)
(Um, I just wanted to remind you that Valentine’s Day is next month.)
(Oh, and I think Mother’s Day is coming up sometime soon, too.)
(Um, I just thought you should know that, okay?)
(Great, thanks, Love!)
(See you after work!)
(Love ya, bye!)
By chance, have any of you seen these PBS movies??
What did you think??
Are they any good??
I’m the most excited for the Persuasion one.
That was my favorite Austen book of them all, but I’ve never liked any of the previous movies of it.
This one looks really good, though, so I’m hoping it’s a keeper!
(You still there?)
(Okay, just checking.)
So, while I’m waiting for my personal money to acrue, I thought I’d entertain myself with this little gem…..
“Which Austen heroine are you?”
I am Catherine Morland.
:: C A T H E R I N E ::
You are Catherine Morland of Northanger Abbey! You love a good Gothic romance – so much, in fact, that you’ll fool yourself into thinking you’re living one! You are imaginative and naive, which is at once endearing and perplexing. Perhaps your heart is TOO pure…but it is adventurous. After all, you love a trip to Bath or a stay at an ancient Abbey.
At first I thought it was a bunch of bull-honkey, but after I read the description to Charming, he said, “That’s totally you!!”
So, there you have it!
I’ll never read Northanger Abbey the same again…..
(You still there?)
(Um, I just wanted to tell you that you’re the most handsome, sweet, loving, smart, funny husband in the whole wide world.)
