goodbye, mr. darcy



I most ardently love you, too. But enough of this folly. I'll take a final sigh while gazing longingly at my laptop screen before I shut it. You're a most pleasant distraction, but I have children to raise, garden porn to study, a toilet to clean and a wedding to attend this weekend. I must tend to Jan tonight, finish laundry and make lunch. My dear Mr. Darcy, '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.' You are wholly admirable and desirable, incomparable to any other storybook hero ever devised.

  10. Now I'm thinking you should start another blog--wherein all you do is upload photos of Mr. Darcy and ask us which we like better.

    Brilliance.

    I'll be your #1 fan.

  11. We never really say goodbye...

    I just love that quote - love takes one over before one notices, doesn't it?

  12. I couldn't resist: pulled "Me and Mr. Darcy" out of my book bin for a reread.
