Happy Birthday Dear

I know I've never found myself in this position before. It's... difficult to find the words. Mrs. Smith, my feelings for you... are very strong...allow me to tell you how much I ardently admire and love you.





(I'm sure Gaskell and Austin will forgive me for mashing their words together like that.)

You quoted Jane Austin!!!!! What a great hubby you must be! Although, you probably roll your eyes whenever you see Andrea watching one of her flicks, just like Merritt does. I guess this makes up for it..... a tiny bit.

Happy B-Day Andrea!

Well, happy birthday. I have no idea where those come from, must be completely outdated.

And, I will watch the war of roses over the game habit from far far away, ignoring the fire in my backyard.

Hi WoW Panda. I just have to stir up trouble once at least once a year over on Lum's blog. It's what I do. :)

"I know I've never found myself in this position before. It's... difficult to find the words. Mrs. Smith, my feelings for you... are very strong..." is from a character named Mr. Thornton. He's a stormy, unsocial, English factory owner during the industrial age. "North and South" written by Elizabeth Gaskell.

"allow me to tell you how much I ardently admire and love you." is the ultimate chick manipulation line of Mr. Darcy (also socially awkward, but reserved about it) in Jane Austin's "Pride and Prejudice"

If there ever was any men in a classic novel that most closely resemble us computer geeks, it's these two. Smart, often completely misunderstood, and can't interact with women very well.

If anyone resembles Mr. Darcy, it's you.

Andrea's more that one in Much Ado About Nothing. I can't remember her name, but the main character lady. You two know what I am talking about.

By the way, I tagged you on my blog because the really sick and twisted part of me wants to see your answers.

Sounds interesting! I will go rent "Pride and Prejudice" for the weekend. It is amazing though that you could recite the words, I for one will only remember the story lines if the movie is good.

WoW Panda, I have a secret (shhh don't tell anyone). I looked up the exact quotes on google. I just knew the basic gist of the lines. And when you watch pride and prejudice you'll see how memorable the "ardently admire..." line is.

Another thing panda, there are a couple different versions of Pride and Prejudice. There is one made by the BBC which all around is probalby the better one (if longer). The newer one with Kiera Knightly has Kiera Knightly in it (always a good thing), and a few other scenes/characters that I think were acted better. It wouldn't hurt to watch them both. :)

LOL I should have thought about the google thing :-)

Anyway, my weekend was like hell, got a 2 year old visiting and I end up been the baby sitter (wife want me away from games). Later on was reformatting vista back to XP because she want the machine. Anyway the kid part was both enjoyable and hellish, I think I broken my back.
