OMIGOD! OMIGOD! THE BBC ADAPTED FINGERSMITH! OMG!11!!!!11!!!!
And they’ve got Imelda Stauton as Mrs. Sucksby! OMIGOD!!
And the chick who played Zena in the Tipping the Velvet miniseries as Sue Trinder!!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!1!!!!11!
(why no, I have no shame, thank you for noticing)
So, anyway, lots of shit has gone down, they didn’t want to let me graduate until I added another English course last minute (fucked over by electives! the bastards!), I switched my senior thesis topic last minute as well (I’m now talking about Victorian anxiety over feminine gender roles in Trollope’s The Eustace Diamonds, very fun. Really!), still haven’t found a job in Chicago, but I might have found an internship in the First Circle of Hell ::cough:: I mean Washington D.C., Promethea Book IV pissed me off (Attack of the Evil Dead Lesbian! I shit you not. Alan Moore’s a fucktard) and I got properly drunk for the first time last weekend and behaved in a very debauched manner with a cute Asian butch in a gay club in Nearby Somewhat Larger Town.
But the BBC adapted Fingersmith, the only book that rivals Tipping the Velvet in my affections, so I can die a happy, happy woman.
back to your regularly scheduled hiatus
