I started watching the "Masterpiece Theatre" version of Jane Eyre today. I got the first disk in the mail from Netflix recently and tonight I got enthralled. I haven't ever read the book before, but I can tell that doom is approaching. I'm just preparing myself. But there's something about BBC productions of classic novels that I just love. So I can't wait to get disk 2 in the mail in the next few days!
Let's see, what else is new....
When I was in a movie on Saturday night, I came to a really deep conclusion: I rarely see any actresses in movies wearing under-eye makeup. Seriously! Katherine Heigl doesn't, the actress in "Definitely, Maybe" didn't...and there's more. But when I try to do eyeliner and mascara on just my top lashes, I look like I am barely functioning. This is such a ridiculous thing to blog about, but that's what I discovered in the movie on Saturday. That, and I HATE adolescents. Go to my friend Christy's blog for her recent story.

I'll list a little reason why I love Kurt so much :) Like I posted a few days ago, on Valentine's Day, he got me a box of chocolates from Godiva. When I woke up and saw the box next to the bed, I was really excited, but then I secretly thought, "Uh oh. What if it's the random assortment that has coconut crap and funky fillings in them?" (Note: I hate chocolates like that. Just give me the yummy, basic chocolate, with occasional caramel.) When Kurt got home on Valentine's evening, I was raving over how he remembered to get me a DARK chocolate assortment and how sweet it was. Then he said, "Well, I really looked carefully and asked them what kind were in the assortment, because I know you hate weird fillings and stuff."
That's the kind of thoughtful guy I married, and I'm so glad!
By the way, "The Other Boleyn Girl" movie is coming out February 29!!!!!! I am about a fourth of the way through the book, and it is fantastic. I literally feel like I'm at court in Tudor-period England. The author is just wonderful. I hope the movie isn't disappointing, but I've seen the trailers, and I'm SO pumped. So if you're remotely interested in what I've been talking about with this period in history, go see this movie (or ask me to go and I WILL!). I think you'll be surprised at how fascinating this period is. www.theotherboleyngirlmovie.com
Well, I'm off to read in bed. Right now, King Henry is shifting his interest from Mary Boleyn to Anne. Critical point in the plot! Everyone have a great day tomorrow....I'll be working, so leave me a comment and say hello. Bon soir :)
