I've Got a New Man

First of all, THANKS A MAZILLION! for all your sweet comments on this post. You really know how to perk a sister up. I heart y'all something crazy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the world of my love life......

I'm over him. Kinda. It was time for Edward and I to go our separate ways. And though I still find myself pining after him, too many of my thoughts had been consumed with vegetarian vampirey goodness, and it was time that we moved on. Edward is, of course, as devastated by this break-up as I am.

So I've pacified my sad heart by turning to another.


And he is pretty amazing. I've been around the love block with him many-a-time, and I knew that he would be the one that could get me through these dark Edward-less days. So I grabbed this off my shelf...



And I have entrenched myself in my beloved Mr. Darcy. Oh. Be still my heart.

I totally buy into the whole "the book is always better than the movie" philosophy. Case in point: My Edward. He is still so much cuter in my head than he ever could hope to be in that movie. And though the movie was blissfully delicious....it doesn't hold a candle to those books. Because they are just that good.

BUT...

Jane Austin may have just met her match with Hollywood. Because that movie gets me every time. Take a look at this....but make sure you have a hankie handy....to either wipe your tears and/or your drool...whichever comes first.



You may now refer to me as Miss Bennet. Because Miss Edward Lover is so last yesterday.

Sorry, but the TRUE Mr. Darcy is Collin Firth, in the A & E version. HE is quite swoon-worth in my book.

Oh, I melt everytime I see Mr. Darcy walk across the meadow! Thanks sis, I needed a smile to end my busy day!

I like your new love so much better than Mr. Edward!

I'm ready to watch the movie again...this time without the boy's comments!

Love ya!

I'm almost embarrassed to say...I've never read the book or seen the movie...

...but I'm thinkin I will soon...it looks REALLY GOOD!

...and I totally agree..Edward was much better looking in my imagination!

Um, if your sitemeter starts sending out stalker alerts, it's because I'm basically just gonna' hang out all day and watch that video over and over, 'kay?

Thanks.

No, really, THANKS....

*sigh*

I have never seen the movie, but I am getting the idea that I am really missing out.

Maybe this weekend???

Drooling never felt so appropriate.

I read the book for the 1st time last year and fell in LOVE! P&P is now one of my favorite books and movies...I got them both for Christmas. I think my husband was a little amused! :)

I'm w/you...this is my favorite version of the movie. Matthew Macfayden is such a HOTTIE! Guess what I will be watching during naptime today!

And he strides WITH PURPOSE across the field.....

*sigh*

Still here.

Thinking about going to Blockbuster.

I think you've inspired me to pick it up again too..and Colin Firth is a wonderful Mr. Darcy.

Um, no need to be concerned about "your" Edward b/c he's blissfully happy with me..I sent you photo evidence for pete's sake...

Enjoy your weekend, my sweet.

Love,
Bella, er, Tiff
