The Beauty of Darcy

Pride and prejudice

Now we all know that is the wrong answer, but at the same time, it’ the truth.

MeanGirls I know right!

Wait, let me explain for those of you who might be confused. Now I don’t know how many of you have seen the Pride and Prejudice (2005) BBC Version¬†but it has a very memorable scene where Colin Firth, who plays Mr. Darcy, jumps into a pond to cool off and looks great doing it!

While this scene isn’t in the book, I’m not one for complaining about it being in the miniseries ūüôā I love how the two are so embarrassed to see each other; not only is it funny but realistic. Plus Colin Firth looks so good!

Anyways this scene was recreated in the TV series Lost in Austen (2008) [This sucked so don’t watch it] as the heroine asked Mr. Darcy to humor her and dunk himself in his pond. Have to say I loved this scene too as I probably would have asked the same thing.

Is that agreeable? Oh YES!

If only Laurence Olivier had done a wet shirt scene!

Such a good-looking man!

Such a good-looking man!

Even in Bridget Jones’ Diary¬†(a very, very, bad modern-day telling) there is a scene that nods to the ’95 P&P with Hugh Grant falling in the lake and getting very wet.

In the sequel, Bridget Jones’ Diary 2: The Edge of Reason (also very bad) we get two scenes that refer to this. One is when Bridget Jones daydreams she sees Mark Darcy (played by Colin Firth) coming out of the water just like Darcy did in the ’95 version (couldn’t find a video); along with seeing a wet Hugh Grant and Colin Firth fight in a fountain ¬†(Watch from 3:37).

As you are probably wondering if there is a point to this post besides discussing the beauty of these men in wet clothes, there is. Recently I stumbled upon this and thought I would post it for anyone interested.

UPDATE:

Sooo this really happened!

Mr.Darcy

 Why does this only happen in cyberspace and not in the physical world?

Mr. Tilney’s Dating Tips

I love Mr. Tilney, he is just so awesome! I know I say that about pretty much every Austen hero, but I can’t help it. Jane Austen just knew how to write them.

I love that the Jail is the Pit of Despair and that the trains are ships and a horse. ‚̧ it all! And that Miracle Max’s miracles are the chance and the Community Chest are the Pirate Chest! So clever.

love it

Hey everyone, I am so sad to say this, but I just can’t complete the 12 Posts of Christmas. I thought I would but I ended up catching a virus and ¬†getting really sick, along with having family/holiday things starting to occur. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and I promise you I will try to post something for Christmas.

Not to leave you all completely high and dry I’m going to end with my six favorite Christmas Carols.

3) The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)

Com’on it’s chipmunks! What could be cuter! Alvin and Theodore were always my favorites.

2) Do You Hear What I Hear?

I first heard it in¬†The Little Drummer Boy sequel and loved it! It’s so pretty and here is a video of Bing Crosby singing in his melodious voice. I love the part that goes “a star, a star, way up in the night with a tail as long as a kite”.

1) We Wish You A Merry Christmas

My favorite verse is bring us some figgy pudding! We won’t go until we get some! I just love the fact that the carolers are demanding it! It always makes me laugh when I sing it.
