The odd thing is, I feel…for the first time, really, I understand what it is to be happy. It’s just that I know that I won’t be.”

Who else here watches Mr. Selfridge?  Catching the first season (even though I’m not a fan of Piven) and I’ve got to say…it’s quite exciting for something from approximately the same time period.

ETA:  Aaaaaaand this episode (don’t know which one it is) just reminded me why kids effing suck.

Posts like these always scare the shit out of me because of my fear of  the day her memorial will come about.

Better quality version of this pic.

I was just thinking about this picture this morning and how much I love it. Also, eyebrow.

I like that the last two make it look like her arm is four feet long.

I just wanted to day something, for my followers (140, how splendid).

In general, I think you are the nicest fandom I’ve ever come across.  Downton people are good people, and I thank you for existing.

Unfortunately, my ex spoiled Downton Abbey for me.  To what extent that remains to be seen, but her mere existence—as long as she walks this earth, to steal from Matthew—spoils it for me.  She was supposed to be my Anna to my Bates (literally with the age gap thing, though she identifies with Sybil—which she is really, really, really FAR from Sybil and is more like Edith, if she is to be a Crawley Sister), but she ended up being worse than O’Brien (much, much worse).

Thus explains my lack of posts/good humor for the show and this blog.  I do apologize for that.

Perhaps one day I can reconcile my feelings, but as it stands, I’ve shied away from the fandom/anything to do with the show because it just reminds me of the scheming, backstabbing, lying little bitch whore I was involved with.  And that’s a shame, since I was the one who got her into the show to begin with.
