Dreamy sigh

Ok, folks, I feel like we have a ton to talk about, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise and all things Scientology;
  • The health care law decision and the Supreme Court;
  • My new closet (genius!); and
  • About a million other things.

All of that is going to have to wait, though, because I have breaking news. Because I sent Aaron to one of those wacky Iowa casinos for the night (a fathers’ day present), I treated myself to a People magazine. Being a single parent is hard and I figured I deserved a treat. I really bought it because the issue promises to tell me what really happened in the Tom & Katie story, but before I got to that, I came across a mini-interview with Mr. Darcy himself, Colin Firth. Firth was asked about his favorite authors and he rattled off a short list I quickly skimmed (Faulkner, Cheever, blah blah). But then I see the glorious Jane Austen’s name in bold. What’s this? I thought. Mr. Darcy tells People magazine,

I’d never read Jane Austen before I [played Mr. Darcy] inĀ Pride and Prejudice; she was a revelation. I went through every book and wished there were more.

Ah, amen. So. Do. I.
