. . . because I'm 'under-the-weather'.
Anyway, I am under-the-weather.
Absolutely no energy.
But, of course, I have the energy to blog.
And I've had the energy to read a book and watch a movie, which are one and the same:
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE!!!!!!!!!!
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
Last night I finished the book (THANK YOU, BAILEY!!!), and this morning I watched the movie. I had thought I wanted to watch the BBC version - with Colin Firth (I always like him) - but I thought it would be too long, and I didn't want to take the time.
Though I'd had seen the Keira Knightley version when it came out a few years ago, I was not mesmerized .... because I hadn't read the book. Well, as soon as I finished the book -which had me mesmerized - Sam and I downloaded the movie. (I couldn't wait to see it - now that I 'knew' it.)
Oh my... I may have to read it and watch it again. !!!
Now you may be thinking, Nancy, how illiterate can you be to just NOW be reading that classic?
Well, I knew it wasn't a who-dun-it mystery, so why bother?
Ah, but lately I'd thought, "I need to be more cultured, and read Jane Austen."
I was mentioning that to Bailey last fall, so she gave me the book for Christmas!
Now I'm all literate and everything!
Well . . .
maybe not everything.
