On a lighter note, I finally picked up some things today.



peremadeleine:

I love that, more and more, Anthony Hopkins is being replaced in Silence of the Lambs graphics—graphics that still include Jodie Foster, mind you—by Mads Mikkelsen.

I adore Mads. Despite my loathing of the piece of shit show he’s in, I’m sure he gives as good a performance as he can (considering the writing).

But don’t you dare erase or ignore Sir Tony’s brilliant portrayal just because you like Mads’ face/like a show that twists the original story’s canon so badly that it may as well not even exist anymore.

Saw this again TWICE this morning on my dash and am now officially pissed off about it.



She has so much grace that she does everything perfectly.  - Louis XVI on his wife, Marie Antoinette [as Dauphine and as Queen at Petit Trianon]



I have few pet peeves bigger than people who review your fic only to tell you to “please let” everything they want to happen happen.

*Pirates of the Caribbean voice* I’m tellin’ the story!



Instead of stressing about my interview this morning, I tried to do a thing to distract myself.

I can't tell you all my secrets.


Oh no.

My professor got back to me and said he’d love being a reference and that it was “so nice to hear from” me.

And now I’m crying.



I went to a used book sale on Friday and spent too much money (though considering I got nine books, it wasn’t that much at all).

I got this beautiful copy of Antonia Fraser’s Wives book for $2, and I was really excited about the ancient-looking Quest for Arthur’s Britain.

I also need another book on Lincoln like I need a hole in the head, but I found this little treasure in the front cover and therefore had to have it:

They also had a ton of Philippa Gregory books (I kind of wanted to buy them all and bury them to keep them out of circulation).

I also got five other books, but they’re birthday presents for my dad.

Days she’d spend with Mabel Rose, dear old Mabesie, who lived in her uncle Will’s building. She and Evie had met when they were nine and Evie and her mother had gone to New York for a few days.  Ever since, the girls had been pen pals. In the last year, Evie’s correspondence had dwindled to a note here and there, though Mabel continued to send letters consistently… Yes, Mabel needed her.

Happy Birthday Cammi!!!
