Someone make that pond scene outfit

Violet Voltaire released a new jewelry set today called Angel. (She blogged about it over here!) It's gorgeous.

I also felt extremely lazy and didn't bother to put any clothes on my drow. This is because I taught about school shootings today, and my brain is still in overdrive about it. Did anyone else notice that it was important for the media to harp on the fact that last week's gunman wore all black and had tattoos? Clearly black + tattoos marks someone as EVIL. My students came to the conclusion that the media has to make us feel safe, and the easiest way to do it is to point out that you can tell the shooters by what they wear.

What does that say about us avatars in SL? Clearly that how we look is a direct reflection of who we are, right? Not.

Anyway, Pride and Prejudice is on PBS, and I'm dying a small fangirl death here. Second Life? School shootings? COLIN is on! POND SCENE! (You know -- THIS POND SCENE!)

excuse my whilst I mop up my drool. There are four magic words... Colin, Firth, Pond, and Scene. You just made my freakin' night. I'm so glad I own the DVD of that version. It's a must-have for any Jane Austen junkie.

*wipes mouth again... staring into the distance muttering something about a wet cravat contest*

That is my favorite movie because it the best adaptation of my favorite novel.... I'm sure that the fact that Colin is YUMMY has nothing to do with it! ;)

Isn't it the best 10000 hour long miniseries ever? It's so very faithful to the books <3

*laughing* -- Olivia, I'm addicted to that pond scene. It's so sexy with very little skin actually showing...
