Have I Recruited Anyone?

Still sick and I'm sure we'll come back to that cause I can whine with the best of them.


Have I recruited anyone to watch the BBC movie North and South? Cause like, there's a crusade and stuff going on and I'm not feeling like I'm pulling my weight!

Now, I know I can get a few girlfriends to watch the movie but they aren't bloggers. Okay, 'know' might be a strong word but I think a few of them would love it.

Okay, point time.

Last night after enjoying the Youtube flick up at Kristie's and Katie(bab)'s OH! On that note - Hi, Katie(babs)!! Kristie told me so many wonderful things about you when she was down for a visit and I never got around to saying hi and that I love your posts also! I may have missed where you guys had explained why the two of you decided to blog together.

Just in case others missed it - basically Kristie 'Crusader Extraordinaire' felt that there were books that needed a voice She didn't read them BUT a great person she talked with at AAR did and voila - a happy union.

And now we two people helping us spend our money ;)

Uh, oh. I lost my point. Seriously I had one when I started but I think I lost my footing and with the cold meds and sleeping pills starting to kick in well, it was bound to happen.


Oh! I wanna be a crusader! (yes, that came out very whiny)

Here's why, after watching the video over at Kristie and Katie's I needed to watch the final scene from the movie again. I watched it twice. Then I noticed they had the extended version of the proposal scene so I then watched that. I figured I knew the different points I re-watched the final version in the film.

On that note, why in the world would they have cut out that bit of dialogue!? What, they couldn't cut something else, they had to cut words that helped to understand the heroine's point of view?

Anyways, after watching her cut him to the quick I had to watch the final scene once again.

So, just in case there are a few here that saw the post and thought 'whoop-de-doo' North and South with Patrick Swayze I just have to say IT'S NOT THAT NORTH AND SOUTH!!

It's North and South, a movie based on Elizabeth Gaskell's book by the same name, and is about the industrialization of England and how the classes had to learn to exist with one another.

And a wonderful love story to boot.

So, dude, seriously, let me know if I have inspired you to watch the movie?

Cause I'm a crusader dammit.

Shut up.

Ooops, I had to get up to get something and Bob caught me stumbling in the hall - sleeping pills have kicked in and I have to go to bed now.

So I stole this one from Kristie but I'm hoping she won't mind.

Cause I'm sick.

You know the extended proposal scene is one thing I haven't watched yet.

Damn...I was supposed to be going to bed now! Watching it now should help me dream of Richard though shouldn't it!

I'm off to Youtube!

Katie(babs) said...

*WAVES AT CINDY* aw shucks. Thanks a bunch. Kristie has been so kind to me, I am just her backup.
You Tube is so evil, Richard videos galore from North and South, Robin Hood and the Vicar of Dibley scenes! (Kissing with no tongues!!)
We need more Crusaders to take over the world!

I'm sold already, and like Marg said, it's a total time-suck.

I got Kwana hooked, too.

Megan Frampton said...

I tagged you for a meme, too.

Kwana said...

You would have had me but like she said, Megan already snagged me. I'm been ruind for the next hero by Mr. Thornton.

Kwana said...

Oh and I'm so lost that as per Megan's suggestion I got the Robin Hood audio book from the libray today read by RA. I'm a mess.

I'm sorry you've been sick lately and I haven't been visiting you. :( You sound kinda like you've been on the Nyquil and man, that stuff makes me loopy. *ahem* not to imply that you're loopy or anything :)

I have N&S on my queue at Blockbuster online and I think it's up next. I just have to watch and return the one I have now which has been sitting around for over a week. So I'll probably be watching it by the end of the month hopefully. I'm trying to get back into blogging after the vacation.

I hope you feel better soon.

Marg said...

Kwana, have you gone so far as to download the audios of the kids stories that he reads?

Kristie (J) said...

Ahhh - Cindy-San - you are being a very good Crusader. I've had a couple of friends watch it so far - one has seen the whole thing and one just the first DVD - which means I'll have to watch the third and fourth episodes - again! A real hardship I tell you!
And I love having Katie as a partner - not only because she shares the Richard love *g*
I'm starting to feel better now - slowly - but now I have that cough - the one that wakes one up in the middle of the night. I want to be ALL better though.
