The odd thing about this form of communication is you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many… somethings.

This movies make any bad day better.
- Joe Fox: You know, sometimes I wonder...
- Kathleen Kelly: What?
- Joe Fox: Well... if I hadn't been Fox Books and you hadn't been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well, met...
- Kathleen Kelly: I know.
- Joe Fox: Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn't have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, "Hey, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie... for as long as we both shall live?"
- Kathleen Kelly: Joe...
- Joe Fox: And you and I would have never been at war. And the only thing we'd fight about would be which video to rent on a Saturday night.
I finally decided to read Northanger Abbey last month and was excited to indulge myself into Tilney’s charm and clever way of being. However, I was disappointed by how arrogant I found him to be. I know he is a good guy, but he seemed a little too full of himself. It was hard for me to read his true feelings. Austen didn’t go as much into him as she did into Catherine and the romance between them was more minor then I wished it to be.
I then decided to watch the movie, just for fun, not expecting much from his character and was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved Henry. The combination of J.J. Feild’s interpretation along with Feild’s natural charm did it for me. He was exactly how I imagined Tilney to be. His own league of handsome, charming, funny, clever, pleasant, good-hearted, and in love with Catherine. Feild brought the character to life and filled in the missing gaps.
Well done J.J. :)
Tonight was wonderful. I read Pride and Prejudice, went on a cookie and writing adventure at a yummy cafe, soothed my soul with heart felt music, and bought some sweet shoes and necessities with a handy graduation gift card.
Ah, the simple pleasures. They make my heart happy :)
Lately, my life consists of yoga, Downton Abbey, volunteering, reading, lounging, and spending time with the one I love.
With, of course, job searching in between. I start work on Monday!
Road bumps aside, it’s been a nice two months of settling.
