I finished reading Pride and Prejudice today. Then I watched the movie. Sometimes they quote Jane Austen directly, other times they cut out immense parts of the book for lack of time. And still other times they add in scenes simply for romantic interest. My favourite scene is the very last one for sure. And it's not even in the book.

Feeling sick must go hand in hand with feeling unattractive.
I am utterly exhausted and wanting very much to feel better.
I had to cancel plans today that were a long time coming just because of this stupid cold.
