One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other

This SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY, coming to a TV near me (and maybe you, if you're lucky!) is the three-month Jane Austenpalooza on Masterpiece Theatre. In case this is the first you're hearing of the loveliness that PBS is providing in our hour of television need, here's the program: January 13: PersuasionThe Amanda Root-Ciaran Hinds version is probably my favorite film version of a Jane Austen novel, so I'm a bit hesitant about this one. Can it be anywhere near as good? January 20: Northanger AbbeyI've never seen a film version of Northanger Abbey, but it's the novel that I've read...

Four soggy Mr Darcies per day!

I think that there should be a (network) television channel that does nothing but show the 5-hour 1995 Colin Firth version of Pride & Prejudice in an ongoing loop....

'Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills. You know, like nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills...'

And I'm the only one who knows the illegal ninja moves from the government. It's AWESOME. Goshhhhhhhhhhhhh.

'It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces'

My mom and I just watched Bridget Jones's Diary in preparation for the sequel, which comes out this weekend. When the movie was over, my mom set off to clean house. Inspired by the fact that Colin Firth/Mark Darcy/Mr Darcy is adorable and everything that is wonderful, I got out my homework and popped Pride and Prejudice into the DVD player.

Doot'n doo doo, feelin' girly

Wearing: pyjamas Eating: ice cream Watching: Pride and Prejudice I somehow end up watching at least part of Pride and Prejudice every time I'm left home alone. I may be developing a sideburn fixation or something. Now I don't know whether to go for more Jane Austen or more Colin Firth or go a completely different route in my Big Girly Video Fest....
