Okay, I get it already! I know this LATE and not what you guys had in mind when you read the first part of this post but HEYY, I DID TELL YOU THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE LIKE THIS!
ANYWAYY…. I am very sorry for the delay but with everything going on, I completely forgot! Please forgive me and let’s start with my ramblings, shall we?
We left off when Mr. Tilney disappears without a word to Catherine. AND WE. DON’T. LIKE. IT! Isabella is already proving to be a *ahem* slut *ahem* but heyy, the SOPHISTICATED kind! Mind your language! ;p
”Well, my taste is different. I prefer light eyes, and as to complexion – do you know- I like a sallow better than any other. You must not betray me, if you should ever meet with one of your acquaintance answering that description.”
So, basically what Isabella is trying to say is, ‘‘Don’t you DARE take a fancy for any of MY future prospects!!”
You see, we gals tend to do that. Mark our territory with our besties and boy, do we squirt hate in large quantities should anyone ever, as Isabella very kindly puts it, BETRAY us. xD xD Dating surely is a maneuvering business.
ENTER James Morland, Catherine’s brother and Isabella’s brother’s bff. Now, there’s two things I remember about this scene. First, I HIGHLY DETEST JOHN THORPE and James is in luuuurrvvveeee with Isabella.
So, back to John Thorpe.
‘He was a stout young man of middling height, who, with a plan face and ungraceful form, seems fearful of being too handsome unless he wore the dress of a groom, and too much like a gentleman unless he were easy where he ought to be civil, and impudent where he might be allowed to be easy.’
HAHAHAHA!!! Oh, John, honey, it’ll be alright! Not everyone can afford to be handsome. We have to leave some space for people like you, you red-faced, big-nostrilled horse-shit!
Oh and in addition to his ”America’s Next Top Model” worthy physique, he is SOOOOOOO boring that the first time he meets Catherine, he talks about – wait for it – HORSES! xD
O-K-A-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y It’s been a whole 2.5 pages and he’s still on the topic of his own ‘diamond-shitting’ horse and carriage! FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, WE GET IT ALREADY!
HEAR, YE! HEAR, YE! John Thorpe is ONE OF US, apparently! He JUST reviewed Camilia by Francis Burney in a very few sentences. Talk about detailing! xD sO, Catherine tells him, when asked, that she hasn’t read the book and he says,
‘You had no loss I assure you, it is the horridest nonsense you can imagine; there is nothing in the world in it but an old man’s playing at see-saw and learning Latin; upon my soul there is not.’
NO, John. Your FACE is the HORRIDEST NONSENSE!! (I am sorry but I just hate him. xD)
DA DA DI DA…DA DA DA DI DA…DU DU DUUUU…DI DI DA DU DOOO….
I am so very sorry but I went on with my reading and DID NOT record my bull thoughts any futher xD!! It was just…. Mr. Tilney was back WITH his sister AND his father. SCARY MAN!!! And it all got too exciting. *said in a whiny voice*
I AM SORRRY.. But HEY, now YOU go read the book and COME BACK (you better!) and discuss it with me!
