I really liked this sonnet, I thought it was beautiful.

Sonnet 22

My glass shall not persuade me I am old
So long as youth and thou are of one date;
But when in thee time’s furrows I behold,
Then look I death my days should expiate.
For all that beauty that doth cover thee
Is but the seemly raiment of my heart,
Which in thy breast doth live, as thine in me.
How can I then be elder than thou art?
O therefore, love, be of thyself so wary
As I, not for myself, but for thee will,
Bearing thy heart, which I will keep so chary
As tender nurse her babe from faring ill.
  Presume not on thy heart when mine is slain;
  Thou gav’st me thine not to give back again

William Shakespeare ~

Emma Pt 1

loved it!!!! Emma never ceases to amaze me. Personally i really admire her character, and i think Jane Austen was so clever in making her. She is the most different in a different way to all her other characters. Emma is clever with certain things and rather clueless with other things. I loved how they put Part 1 and Part 2 into one part. I very much enjoyed it, and i hope those who watched it also enjoyed it.
Catch next weeks episode at PBS (check local listings) on either Sat. or Sunday.
Next Week Emma Part 2 - 60 min.

Thanks BOstan~

Cranford Part 2

I loved it Loved it! (Again) The film makers and all who was apart of the film did a fantastic job. It was brilliant! The characters old and new were great and i loved them. It was again both happy, nerve racking, and deeply sad. Brought tears to my eyes again. Also it was so funny which i should not leave out. It was a great movie does well to compete with "Cranford".

What happened?

Well it is now official that Keira Knightley will not be playing Eliza Doolittle in the possible re-make of My fair lady. That is a big change i must say. But the now possible leads for the role that are rumored are American actresses Scarlett Johansson, and and Anne Hathaway, but it is said that "the film-makers are insistent that the role goes to a British actress." Carey Mulligan (from Pride and Prejudice) was rumored to be asked to meet the director John Madden about the role, and from the article the "Other contenders in the category are: Twilight's Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg from Zombieland, former Skins star Nicholas Hoult (very good opposite Colin Firth in A Single Man) and Tahar Rahim, who is brilliant in the sublime prison drama A Prophet."
