"It is a truth universally acknowledged..."
Am feeling ambivalent about the new Pride & Prejudice. The 1996 BBC Production (with dishy dishy Colin Firth - whose Mr Darcy, incidentally, currently has pride of place on my screensaver), was, let's face it, TV gold. Not entirely sure about pouty Keira playing Lizzy. Lizzy is smart and strong and modern, and I don't know if Keira has the smarts to play her. However, I entirely support choice of Matthew McFadyen as Darcy, he being of the gravelly-voiced, broad-chested "Spooks" guy. Yum yum. Will reserve judgement til end of October.
In other news, just had a major win at work. Feeling quite full of myself. Then I remembered End of Week Deadline, and broke into cold sweat. Muh!
