I will pay you to look at my blog (watch for Sean Bean at the end of this)

I saw on the Market news yesterday that they are inventing a printer that will reproduce in 3D. It uses plastic jets inside instead of ink and can reproduce a solid form from an image. This is interesting, is it not? Hmmm... This may be a wonderful Christmas in 2011. I will take my little printer and steal off into the woods with my Mathew Mac dolls. Of course, there are those who would want something else. Something say a bit older, a bit more regal, a bit more colin...

It has not escaped my notice that I got back my lost follower - I am back to ten now so evidently the Firth pictures are doing the trick. Now that I am a Cancer sign instead of a Leo I must behave in a more civilized manner. Here are the new breakdowns:

Capricorn: January 20-February 16
Aquarius: February 16-March 11
Pisces: March 11-April 18
Aries: April 18-May 13
Taurus: May 13-June 21
Gemini: June 21-July 20
Cancer: July 20-August 10
Leo: August 10-September 16
Virgo: September 16-October 30
Libra: October 30-November 23
Scorpio: November 23-December 17
Sagittarius: December 17-January 20

I was going to go for 1 to 4 books in the Austen Prose Reading Challenge. I've never read a book about a fictional Jane Austen before so I may not like them. If any of you want to read with and give me your impressions I'll forward them on and then we can divvy up the gift if we get one. Plus I'll hve to consider putting you all on salary to read this blog.

And now for no apparent reason other than to look at him, a Youtube video of Sean Bean as Sharpe - a great series of books written by Bernard Cornwell recreated into a mediocre British TV series staring a gorgeous British man.

The theme was a great great song from the 1800's, an actual British Army song sung by John Tam - not so beautiful but a great folk singer. I wanted to use this song so badly for my video for Darcy and Fitzwilliam but then it would just be the Colonel's part and not Darcy, but I love this song. Absolutely love it. And isn't Sean Bean a treat and a half. He usually plays such heavies in films, then came The Lord of the Rings and he was Bromoseltzer or something. But before that he was my beloved Richard Sharpe! All my great loves are named Richard!

Well Firth is the man for me :) You really made me laugh with Bromoseltzer. Still chuckling here. In fact I think Boromir was Sean Bean's best part ever, but than I didn't see the Richard Sharpe movie. Will have to look that one up!

Thanks for the new Colin to ponder. I copied him to my screen. Thanks for sharing.

I'm having a hard time understanding how to do the S. Barron book read. Do I have to go through an author's blog to participate? Please dumb-down the sign-up for me. xo

Lucy, I can't dumb down the sign-up because I copied it verbatim. I don't understand it either. Just go there are post your opinions I guess. I'll ask some questions and report later.

Elsina, welcome. I remember you from the Jane Birthday go round. I'll have to find a lot of Colin for this place. Tomorrow I can have pictures of him winning his Golden Globe!

Oh and Sharpe was a series in England in the eighties. Last year they had two special movies on TV in Britain with Sharpe and his buddy the irishman in India and I think they are filming another. If you can find the old series it's worth watching just because he was so beautiful back in the day. But read the books too, they are much better.
