if you do not love me I shall not be loved, if I do not love you I shall not love

terrified again
of not loving
of loving and not you
of being loved and not by you

My sister is visiting, and we did a love story marathon last night – one tearjerker (Ghost) and one romcom (Love Actually). I last saw Ghost years ago as a teenager, and I honestly thought I’d be more skeptical this time around (oh, please!) But nope, I still cried. This song … it’s too much, even shirtless!PatrickSwayze couldn’t distract me.

My favorite story in Love Actually is the Emma Thompson/Alan Rickman marriage, but Bill Nighy the dissolute yet somehow still charming rake is a very close second. My sister is aghast. “Bill Nighy?? He’s like, older than Dad!” Hah!

Random Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch doing impressions of Alan Rickman, David Tennant and Jonathan Ross (I’m guessing that’s the host?) His Alan Rickman is PERFECT!!

P&P, Sherlock Edition – Holmes and Watson as Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. Special appearance by Inspector Lestrade as Mr Collins. And Moriarty as Judi Dench.

“Did you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your circumstances?”
“From the first moment I met you, your arrogance made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever marry.”

Are you sure about that, John .. umm, I mean, Lizzie?
