the gentleman of milton

To the people out there who knew of the existence of North & South and had not insisted on my watching it years and years ago: You are no longer my friends. To hold this from me! Hmph.

Now I’m conflicted. Darcy or Thornton?? I mean, I thought Colin Firth did an amazing job with the smoldering glances and tortured pining. Richard Armitage can give him a run for his money and then some.

Maybe you should decide: The mini-series (with french subtitles)! Only click if you have four hours to spend. You’ll never get away!

As a complete aside, my most amusing story of the day: after I had gotten sign out that there were “no overnight events” with a particular patient, I discovered that the patient had had a minor procedure with some major complications, requiring emergent surgery and intubation where patient subsequently coded and required CPR to restore heart rates. He stabilized after that and as everything happened before 7 or so (I had left the hospital sick some hours before) I guess, technically, “no overnight events” was accurate. Boy, was it a shock, though!

  • I hope I still count as a friend, since I have spent YEARS telling EVERYBODY, quite vehemently, to see this! Glad you finally did!

    And hey, if you decide Thornton > Darcy, you can buy the t-shirt 😉

    There’s always a version to one’s honesty, isn’t there? “No Overnight Events” means one thing to one person, and something very different to another. Complications is a very subjective word, too. Crazy.

    I’ll have to watch North and South. I have bookmarked it for future use! Don’t hate me–I have never seen it either!
