I've been fighting a cold all week and today it won. So I cancelled my lessons, curled up on the sofa, drank lots of hot tea and soup and spent the afternoon with Lizzie and Mr. Darcy. All 5 1/2 hours of the BBC version. In addition to all the witty lines which make me smile every time, some of my favourite moments include when they dance at Netherfield, when she accidentally runs into him at Pemberley (you know the scene I mean!), and later when they're walking down the lane and she tells him how her feelings are quite the opposite of what they were the first time he asked...(sigh). As always, it makes me want to read the books and get lost in Jane's world but I really should get back to the Dickens I'm reading for My Year of Reading Dangerously. I'm already falling behind on the reading I'd like to do this month. Oh well, this counts as my first selection for the Austen Mini-Challenge. I hope it's not too long before I get to spend some more time with Jane.
