What was to be a real post

Well I was going to write about how I adore Emma Watson, but that post will have to wait as all the pictures I had lined up went away when my Internet browser up and quit.

Instead, I will just say how ridiculously excited I am for this right here!
Downton Abbey and Any Human Heart and Upstairs Downstairs, oh my! Plus I will be home for most of Downton Abbey and so will be able to watch it on a real TV! So thrilling!

New Best Friends? Pt. IV

Dear Marion Cotillard,

Can you be more chic? I mean come on! So here's the plan: I am going to come to France, and we can be new best friends. I am envisioning croissants and berets and museums and most likely some shopping. So how about it?

Love,
Lily

New Best Friends? Pt. III

Dear Drew Barrymore,

You are pretty cool, I'm pretty cool, so let's be friends! I think it's a swell plan. I really enjoy Ever After, even if it is awfully cheesy. And The Wedding Singer is the best! Oh, and I was so so impressed with Whip It. What a lovely movie, snaps to you! And additionally, I think you are ever so stylish. So new best friends, what do you think? Let me know.

Love,
Lily

The Pillars of the Earth

Today, I watched The Pillars of the Earth. Yes, ALL of it. All 8 hours in one day. It was THAT GOOD! Oh my goodness, such nail-biting action. And so many amazing actors. Particularly of note were:

Rufus Sewell, my favorite!
20090127182237
and Matthew MacFadyen, so dreamy!

But I think the person who made the miniseries for me was one, Mr. Eddie Redmayne. Oh my goodness gracious is he attractive. How about some photos? But of course!

Look at that face! Just look at it! How could you say no to 8 hours of that?

And look, he's even dashing!

Tumblr_l7zjh5mkh01qci06eo1_500_large
Favorite! Needless to say, I added him to the dreamy list. Because there is a list. So hey, you have 8 hours to spare, don't you? So watch!

New Best Friends? Pt. II

Dear Ellen Page,

You seem super cool. I really liked you in Juno, not to mention Whip It. And Inception probably seemed like a good idea at the time, so that is understandable. So here is my question for you: do you want to be new best friends?

Love,
Lily
