In which I draft a post based entirely on this.
Fact: Sir LOLivier is tha serious hotnissss in this. Such excellent posture, so emotionally distant!
Fact: I once* visited a foreign city in which I had previously lived for eleven months and checked into my hotel but knew I was about to run out of reading material. Because it is GERMANY where it’s like this I knew the English-language bookstore near the Uni closed at six. I got on the U-Bahn at 5.40p, took it two stops, then miraculously knew in which direction I needed to platform-clog-sprint to land me almost at its front door.** I bought Rebecca and spent a delicious weekend roaming and reading and buying nice German things I could not afford back when I was a scholarship-receiving, student-loan-burdened Studentin.
Fact: I read Gone Girl for my job*** last year and could not stop reading it. I would literally set a timer and work two hours, then read another 50 pages. This went on for at least two and possibly three days.
Fact: Rosamund Pike was terrific in An Education.
Fact: Ben Affleck is a joke. The real tragedy? That his brother’s acting is so blatantly superior. Casey Affleck can make even a crap movie tolerable. And when the material’s good and he has to suffer under his tool@ss card-counter brother’s direction he still fails to phone it in, as his brother does every single time on cam.
Fact: One of the VERYFIRSTTHINGS I did between finals and WSU’s undergrad commencement was buy a copy of Jane Freaking Eyre. I remember how thrilling it was to think: From now on I can read whatever I want. For ever and ever! I still read Rebecca every few years because it’s just so perfect.
