Life updates + lovememe

Thanks for all thoughts and condolences on the subject of the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week; it's slowly on the mend, I think, and hey, today was warm enough to go out without a hat. A day at the end of January where I actually feel like voluntarily taking a hatless walk counts as a victory, I think. ♥

I'm going to wait until another reading post is actually worthwhile before I make one, but I will always lament the dearth of men in Emma who are actually interesting enough for Emma Woodhouse. I may have a substantial pro-Emma bias, but I can never muster more than polite good will towards George Knightley. I think it's the age difference in their relationship, among other things; oh, well.

Oh! So, lovememe. I've... never actually done a lovememe, it's so contrary to my netsocialization (someday I will write an article on the subject of netsocialization for those of us young enough to have received a "netsocialization," and I promise it will be 500% less silly and facile than most of Slate's--or whoever it is that usually writes these articles--material about internet social norms!), but this one looks like fun so: [personal profile] staranise (which I keep reading as some iteration of the name "Stannis," oops) is doing a words and deeds-focused one and my thread is here.

If Stannis ran a love meme, there woulf only be two people to comment on: Melisdandre and R'hllor. Poor Davos would keep trying to add Stannis's own name only to get it screened.

Man, I feel like I should have more thoughts on Emma but I always come back to how terrible Ewan McGregor's wig was as Frank Churchill. Because it's pretty terrible.

Am glad things are getting better. <333

My admittedly shaky understanding is that he filmed that pretty soon after Trainspotting, so he could not grow the requisite hair.

Thus: THE WIG.

Maybe THAT'S why Obi-Wan had the flip in Attack of the Clones.
