Sweet and tender

I wanted to take a brief break from this last big push to finish my Major Paper (neigh!) to share this link with all y'all. I ran into it yesterday and really liked it, but haven't had a chance to put it up here until now.

Amazing what the prospect of another hour with the Major Paper (neigh!) will do to your unimportant-but-it-would-be-nice-to-do list.

At any rate, this is one of the sweetest things I have read in a while. Enjoy!

And please don't be deterred by the fact that most of what I have read in the last while is stuff related to my Major Paper (neeeeeeeiiiigh!); even if I had just finished reading Persuasion,* this would still have been a strong contender.

*This whole scene is amazing, but if you want to cut to the chase, fast forward to 2:20.

What a lovely letter. :)

Persuasion is in my short to-read list right now! Have you ever seen the new version of it the BBC made? Sigh. I love it.

I have seen the new version of Persuasion and I quite enjoyed it, although the 1995 version is still my favorite. (The deciding factor probably comes down to a tie between the 1995 one featuring Ciaran Hinds and not having one of the most awkward kisses ever filmed.)

I highly recommend reading the book. One of my top five. Which, coming from a bibliophile, should say something.
