hot headed...

i got my car back today.

one would think i would be happy

but mostly i feel like screaming.

screaming really really loud at everyone who will listen and even louder at those who will not.

but i am trying to not have a heart attack tonight, so we have to talk about something else.

i am trying to not be hot headed, i tend to be kind of hot headed. i get out of control, i yell, i get angry and ugly and irrational. i am hot headed, but i am working on it... so i can't talk about my car... not right now.

instead i will fill my head with jane austen.

this one gets me everytime. he loves her so much, just look at him looking at her.

and this one. laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.

"I cannot fix on the hour, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun."
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 60

and now, my hot headedness is nearly gone. for the next 5 minutes at least. jane austen is known to have that affect on me. my head is in a dreamy state of love and clouds and mushy mushy-ness. a lovely state of mind wher i will choose to stay for the next 45 days 2 hours and 39 minutes.

p.s. has anyone read pride and prejudice and zombies? i am very curious about it... but really do not want to read it.


  1. I refused to read Austen for years because I thought it was girly fluff. But, oh, when I finally gave in... My, what I fine writer she was!

  2. Oh dear. When I spoke with Matthew...things were not so awful with the car....but it seems to have taken a turn for the worse.
    I'm sorry.

    I love Jane Austen movies. Very much.

    it has now been cemented in eternity, and in time.

    no one - I mean NO ONE - has ever put those three scenes together like this. These three scenes are the ones I ALWAYS reference when people ask why I Iove the movies so much. I'm currently sitting on a couch at a retreat center in Asheville, North Carolina, and I'm all weepy because of watching these three moments. Thank you for putting them in one place, and for assuring me that we clearly, truly, and honestly are related.


  4. Sorry about your car...I can definitely relate to being a hot head. I always have been...does not help me much with relationships, but it damn sure makes me feel better to yell and scream!! I love Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice is a fav!!

  5. I read the P&P&Zombies book. It's amusing if you have time to spare and dont have anything else to read--he essentially cuts and pastes zombie attacks into the plot--when Jane is ill at Netherfield, it's not a cold picked up in the rain, she recovering from a zombie attack on the way over. That sort of nonsense.

    The funny thing is, you have to know the book to get the humor.

    There's a new one out or coming out--Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. I will probably give it a miss.

  6. Sometimes I just wish that everyone in the world could have that kind of love. That is the most beautifully sweet thing. I love it. I have never heard of the zombie book. Do you believe that I am the only person in America that has NOT read the Vampire books that everyone and their brother is reading. I can't remember the title this second. Did you read them?

  7. life with kaishon, i did read the twilight books. i refused to for sooo long, and i finaly gave in, and i loved them. i have read them 3 times. not brilliant writing, but a brilliant mind, it sucks you in big time.

    deb, i think i will give p&p&z a chance, when i don't have a long list of bnooks to read.
