I have been ensconced in 'Pride and Prejudice' (the remake, Kierra Knightly) the last 2 days. It's been 2 days because that's how long it takes me to watch a movie. I love this movie. I love the language, I love the dress, I love the charm of Mr. Bingley, the rambling of Mrs. Bennett and Mr. Bennett's love for her, I love Mr. Darcy's serious eyes.
I am watching P&P because I am trying to escape my head. I am so pissed at myself that I bunked at all of 2 miles an hour, if that, into a trash can and broke my van mirror. I am pissed that the van already needed a bunch of other work done so who knows what all of that is going to cost. I'm sad at my daughter's preschool graduation. One of my cats appears to be sick and has barfed and shat on the floor, of course on the carpet where it's harder to clean. As I've written earlier, I despise with a deep, heartfelt hatred, my carpet so it's not that I mind that it's further trashed (it's like pouring mouthwash into a sewer, does it much matter?) but I am quite lazy, and I mind getting on my hands and knees to scrub carpet I'd rather tear out.
So basically friends, what we have here - even amidst this gorgeous weather we are blessed to have - is a foul, poor, nasty attitude.
I love Lady Katherine's hair in this movie. I forget the actress who plays her, a handsome woman. She's fabulous. "Her ladyship demands it."
Yeah, I'm watching it right now. Laid out on the couch like a beached whale. Bra-less mind you. Sorry if that was a put-off, just paining a picture.
Tonight Kevin and I are going to the Phillies game, where he has assured me it's going to be the game of a lifetime. I don't know what that means...he went on to tell me why but I wasn't listening anymore. That's the secret to my marriage by the way.
Kevin, if you ever read this, I love you and your expansive conversational tendencies. It's one of the reasons why I fell in love with you. And I am no mute to be sure.
So anyway, I think the game of a lifetime will bring me out of my funk. And why am I in a funk anyway, with a family as wonderful as mine, with a life as blessed as mine.
"Put me out of my misery, marry me Elizabeth."
