   Anne-girl's Hero Week is now upon us and my delight is growing as each moment brings me nearer defending my favourite hero. (HA... it is not like I just wait to defend him but sadly he dose need a good deal of defending):
  Seeing that Anne-girl wants us to post our top ten heroes it is my honour and privilege to post this. *side note: I may not post all ten but some will do. Won't it?*
  I have been looking forward to this for quite some time and now it is here! You all know who my favourite hero is but not why. So here is a rather long post I've been working on... slightly for a "long' time. (:
  So... without further ado... my heroes. Yes... I use the word "MY." (:

WARNING: These heros are NOT in order... but the best seem to get up to the top. *laugh* And it may have some spoilers.

                                                     MR. Darcy ~Pride and Prejudice

 All right, lets make one thing clear. I just cannot call him "Fitzwilliam." Lady Catherine's creepy voice sounds in my "poor head' every time I hear his name! (Miss Dashwood said it with extravagant
goodness) And... I chose this picture because he's smiling. What? Oh, yes! "Soaaaaaaary!" But it is the truth. I guess (and I am speaking about the only actor I can call MR. Darcy) he did have a reason not to smile "a lot." But still he should have more.
OK, enough already. The main reason why I LOVE this hero is because he is just AWESOME. Come on. Now, you gotta admit it! (admit it, admit it Maria) Ahem... anyway.
I don't like him just because he is handsome, or filthy rich, or because he "hops in the Pemberley pond." I like him because of his British accent. Um... all right, I'll stop. (for now)
I like him because his pride melts away, he is a great brother, and because he strode in at the last and saved Lizzy from "Wickam-distress." (yes... I'm quoting myself)  
Read this post for wonderful "Darcy Defence"! 

  MR. Knightley~ Emma

Another Austen hero! Who cares... they are all great! Ahem...
(did you notice I put a one by his name?) I know, I know. I'm a horrid copy-cat and I am proud of it (not). Anyways...
I have LOVE MR. Knightley as much as I do MR. Darcy! (Miss Woodhouse is thinking..."What? There can not be two opinions about his being the best!") I disagree.
I did think I liked him more than Darcy once but I think I like em both pretty the same. Don't you think he looks good in a top hat? By the by, this is my brother question. *loud cough*
I love MR. Knightley because he is a Austen hero and because he is so terribly gentlemanly. Yes, he can be a little too harsh many times but he is what a TRUE hero is. "If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more." DISCLAIMER: I love that scene!!!!! Did I use that word correctly?


I'm JUST kidding! But hey...
Don't he look cool there?

Westley~ The Princess Bride  

I like this guy because he's cool. Love the scene were he says "Drop. Your. Sword."
(not) No really... I sorta like it. A man in black just has to be cool... does he not?
My brothers are obsessed with quoting him all day long and I seem to get a quote in each day too.
Ahem... and the fencing scene. (:

Mr Tilney~Northanger Abbey 

One: I have not watched this Northanger Abbey and I'm not sure if it is even good. But I have read the book. Two: I think he is with Catherine but I'm not sure. Three: fill-in-the-blank.
First... Mr Tilney made me laugh all through the book. I just like him because he is gentlemanly, funny, and are they not the sweetest couple ever? I was laughing from his thoughts on muslin to his story about what Catherine would find behind the black veil!

Gilbert Blythe~Anne of Green Gables  

I like him because of his personality. I think that his advice to Anne would do well for me. I've constantly got my head in the clouds and my pen is writing down such creepy nonsense that it would do me good to retort back at him, "I'm not your horse, Mr Blythe!" Just kidding but he is one of my favourites.

I think this sort of raps it up.
 Even though I did not list ten heroes I got the majority on my favourites list. 
Thank you all who were willing to wait (like everyone was waiting for the great Abilaine to post her favourite heroes)

God bless,

A thank you and a promise

  Thanks to all who voted on the polls.

 It was quite unanimous that I should post movie and book reviews. It dose make sense. Everyone likes a good period drama review and who ever dose not "is intolerably stupid." :) Could not resist that chance to quote Henry Tilney!
  To be frank... it was a close tie in the second poll! But, it seems I shall keep my header.
 With a few tweaks here and there... seeing I'm going to use "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich..." for the description of my blog. :)
  And I hate ... that is a STRONG word, but I do not fully enjoy my poor blogs new look, lets just say.

 First HERO WEEK post coming soon, peoples.

 God bless,

Blog re-do

  My blog may have some weird makeovers this week so...
Don't freak out if you see some VERY horrid looks throughout today and tomorrow and all this week.
Thanks to all for not blasting me off Blogger because I have not posted. :)

 God bless,

  Posts are coming, dears. (:

What to do

After a few cups of coffee, reading a bit of Emma, and starting my day of with my with my brother quoting Mr. Collins (2005): through the house for 17 minutes... I can put up with anything. (and no, he did not say, "What a superbly featured room and was excellent boiled potatoes!") And if he had I would have been furious!!!   

   *rabbit trail*

 OK, what this post IS about is gonna blow your socks off and send you to the moon. (not)  *cough*
 In light of the fact that HERO WEEK is almost upon us I would like to take this moment to say...

  "In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you... Anne-girl!"

   I know, I know. I've said a snorting amount TOO much already. By the way, this post is not about the gentlemen who said that *Mrs. Ellton          
smirk*, or about his feeling being repressed, or why Colin Firth is the ONLY one who got that line right! (right Lydia) (anyway, don't you think that is the-greatest-proposal-ever)

 Ahem. Where was I?

 'Tis a very different matter, involving "My Blog."    
After Hero Week comes to a close (Oh pray, don't speak of that!) I will, because certain of things, such as reading the following: Little Dorrit & Jane Eyre, Watching (hopefully): Sense and Sensibility (2008)
 etc. etc. etc.

Thus leading me to post only... nothing.
The fact of the matter is that I have nothing to post about. That is why I ask you all to vote on the four polls right of this post. :)
  It would greatly help me and I'm sure Mrs. Ellton would not think the worst of me if I told her that my sister wrote a blog titled after her. (laugh, I say):

 Joking, joking. Anyways, please vote.

 "If I loved you all less, I might be able to talk about it more."
  "Love you all most ardently."
 God bless, (how come I feel like Mr. C (collins) right about now?)

  *EDIT*: I'm not meaning to steel anyone's thunder by posting about Darcy. (only my own)-:

My 1st Blog Button

   My first blog button! And yes, I did it alllllllllllll myself. (wanted it to be special, you know) PLEASE? pleeeeeeeeeeease put it on your blog? "It will be a great scandal, if you don't keep your word." No, not really... you made no such promises to me.



Quote of the day

 The reason I do this quote of the day thing, is... I just like it. It is not supposed to posted every day... just whenever I want! OK?

                         "I must confess... I expected love to feel something different than this." ~ Emma

  I know that I quoted this movie 2 times before this but... what can I say?

The loveliest dance

  Ever since seeing the BBC 2009 Emma I've been quite in love with Mr Knightley and Emma's dance. Who could not be? It is truly unforgettable! The music, the dance steps and the hole feeling you get when it ends is so, so lovely.
    And I thought I loved Darcy and Elizabeth's dance. Question??? But no. NO, no, no, no, no! It will not do! I can not do. This is quite distressing, is it not? Yes, indeed.
  Well, by and by, may I comment that it is soooooah wonderful. Yes, thank you. (THE END)

        Ah yes! Here is a line up picture thing. I have no clue what it is really called so I shall dub it the name of "the picture thing."

 Am I the only one who is plagued with the silliest smile on my face after this dance? Please tell me if you are. My sister thinks it is better than Lizzy and Darcy's dance and (I must say) I have to agree with her.
  Dear, Mr. Knightley! "Why on earth, did she call Knightly?" (and if you don't get it, I will think you a simpleton, indeed)

 God bless you,

Lovely, lovely , lovely

  I have entered three KEEP CALM button things (I say this because I have no idea if they are even called buttons) Anyway, I entered. Here they are! What do ye think?

Mrs. Elton~Emma :)

Mr. Darcy~ Pride and Prejudice 
I did enter another but I was not thinking clearly so... what can I say?

It was pure genius, I tell you! 

                                                              Oh, yes! It 'tis, indeed.
                                                     Check the hole thing out here. :)

Quote of the Day :)

  OK... this is very, VERY embarrassing. I have not posted anything since the 26 of November, when we were all dancing together at Netherfield... since sometime last week.
      Repentance is in order!!!
 Anyway, I had not posted a word or dropped a hint if I was still in the blogging world (well, I was at the Epic Comment War) Right, Melody? *loud cough* :-) My "mama" was ill (and no, it was not with "her poor nerves") :P

Quote of the day

 I have decided that each day I will quote something from a famous person, period drama :) or Emma. Just to let you know it will (very likely) be a quote from Emma (the book)/different movies. So, enjoy.

                      "Try not to kill my dogs" Mr Knightley Emma :) 

    Also, I want to apologize for not saying a word about Easter. Tragical... I know!
        "Great know I have gilt!"  Ahem... anyway. "It was very wrong of me, Bingley and I apologize."
     Um, I am my sisters watched the 1995 P&P last night and I seem to like even more. YOU HEAR ME PEOPLE???????? I love it. It is so perfect! Everything about the hole thing! *swoon* Plus it has Colin Firth as Mr Darcy! *swoon again*... 

 God bless you all. (And for heavens sake, Kitty have a little compassion on my nerves!)
