Was i gonna do homework tonight? Oops.
CZ's lecture on Chesterton did not improve my feelings on him. Especially since she talked about the Inklings as a continuation of Romanticism. Yeah, way to not sell me on something.

We watched the dance scene wherein we first meet Darcy (actually starting with the preceding scene wherein Mrs. B. frets about convincing Mr. B. to visit Bingley) in 3 film versions (BBC, A&E, Laurence Olivier) and i was struck by how identical some of the actors/actresses were across versions. The dance was quite different in each one, though, and of course each version kept in slightly different things.
On The Commonly Confused Words Test
, i scored:
You scored 100% Beginner, 93% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 77% Expert!
You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!
I have no idea what those percentages mean (and it would be nice if they told you the correct answers at the end) but yay being a genius.
Who thinks Kate (diadeloro
) is cut out to be a soccer mom? Has somebody been spiking the water or something? Babe, just wear the pearls and start handing out death warrants. I totally volunteer to hit people with large sticks.
