On The 10 Minutes Away Pie

@anachronistique Good for you, I feel like Middlemarch + Candy Crush is the perfect intellectual balance. I couldn't get through Middlemarch. Come to think of it, I'm not really doing that well with Candy Crush either...

On "What's the Worst Thing That's Woken You Up in the Dead of Night?"

High school me at 3:30 a.m.: "Dad...? Chloe [my parents' calico cat] has a mouse in my room".

Dad: "Go back to sleep, she'll kill it eventually".

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Robert Redford, Golden Boy

@PistolPackinMama My high school boyfriend looked just like Robert Redford. This is, of course, not a coincidence.

Serious note: I often think about how if it weren't for Robert Redford and his pioneering development of the Sundance Institute, people like me (geographically, economically) would seldom have access to truly wonderful independent films. He changed the game!

Now I'm not really the "celebrity crush" type... but this here is the exception.

I always said that if I ever wind up with a chestnut gelding, I'm going to name him Sundance.

Robert Redford movie marathon tonight at my place, all are welcome. We will start with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and conclude with The Milagro Beanfield War, his directorial greatest.

On Daisy, You're a Drip, Dear: Detestable Literary Characters Who Are Not Technically Villains

@City_Dater Yeah, at first I didn't really think too much of her casual drug use, but then she couldn't go to sleep without morphine.

Random thoughts:

Why is the fact that Anna Karenina is (quite possibly) a serious morphine addict never discussed?

Amy March is my girl. Population: 1

Ashley Wilkes is THE. WORST. PERIOD.
