So you know how I have all this borderline-obsessive adoration for the Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow? MULTIPY THAT BY ROUGHLY A BILLION, because I'm reading his autobiography. OH MY DAYYYYS. He went to uni in Liverpool and got kicked out for staging a sit-in! He did his VSO bit in Uganda! He met the Pope! I'm going to have such an epic reading list after I'm finished with this, because I know SO EFFING LITTLE about all the conflicts he mentions. IGNORANT SOPHIE IS IGNORANT. But yes! LOVE THAT MAN. Also he was friends with Decca, my favourite Mitford, so.

Bookwise, I'm also massively enjoying Summerland by Michael Chabon. I love Chabon anyway (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is in my Top 10, no question), but this book! It makes me want to have kids JUST SO I WOULD BE ABLE TO READ IT TO THEM. There's a werefox! I JUST LOVE BOOKS AN AWFUL LOT. I also enjoy cheap thrills, so I'm devouring all the Jennifer Crusie I can get my hands on. You guys, I'm going to be so sad when my degree is over and I won't legitimately be able to fill my days with delightful romantic fiction and eat chocolate in the bath!

Not much to say about Robin Hood, other than that, once again, I rather liked it! Tuck continues to AWESOME about all over the place; Allan got lots of lines (nose!) and was delightful; Much continues to break my heart; Edmund was, randomly, Charlie from Spooks: Code 9! I wanted him to stayyyy - The Gang needs a pretty young thing now we are sadly sans Will.

GIP! Ohh, Olivia "Goddess" Williams, you are so very lovely.

How are you? ♥

Didn't you think Edmund looked so much like Patrick Wolf in some places? I DID :D And Tuck really does OWN. AND WE GET ISABELLA NEXT WEEK WHO WILL HOPEFULLY BURY KATE IN A DITCH SOMEWHERE.

Oooh, he did, rather! Now you've got me yearning for an outlaw singsong! I BET TUCK HAS MUSICAL GIFTS SOMEWHERE IN HIS ARSENAL OF TALENTS. I AM EXCITED FOR ISABELLA AND HER CHEEKBONES.

Decca ftw!

Enjoyed Robin Hood as well last night, even if it was a bit grim for them. Still, I am looking forward to the return of Rarmitage next week, and I don't even really like Guy all that much. (Speaking of Guy, I figured out that the Guy in Robin of Sherwood looks EXACTLY like the head of my department and it scares me a little.)

I'm 50/50 right now. It is amazing and gorgeous outside and I had a lovely walk earlier. Except now I'm inside with a headache and only a page and a half into my four to six page paper. I just don't caaaaaare, it's only 8% of my grade.

I am slightly disappointed that he seems to have started grooming himself again; HOW WILL WE KNOW HE IS GRIEVING IF RARRMITAGE DOESN'T HAVE TO KEEP TOSSING HIS GREASY HAIR OUT OF HIS FACE? (Hee! That sounds... distracting XD)

UGH, SCHOOL. I'm in exactly the same mood; I can't motivate myself as much as I should because I would have to fuck up pretty badly at this point to not get the degree I'm probably going to get. Meh.

I've been meaning to read Kavalier & Clay for a while now! Summerland looks interesting too, and a werefox makes it all the more appealing. Yay books!

Kavalier & Clay is AMAZING. Comics! War! Comics! Also, I cried LIKE A BABY when I finished it, ach.

Sophie, I fear I am as alone as an alone thing in not minding Kate too much! In fact, I may rather like her. I think this is maybe a reaction to the dislike fandom seems to have taken to her. NO ONE COULD HAVE HAIR AS GOOD AS MARIAN'S, COME ON NOW. :( I feel like maybe I need a YAY KATE icon? Aaaaaanyway.

You're not ignorant! You just don't know eeeeverything. Which is normal. To know everything would be somewhat freakish and I'm not sure I would be able to be your friend. Well, maybe. ;)

You guys, I'm going to be so sad when my degree is over and I won't legitimately be able to fill my days with delightful romantic fiction and eat chocolate in the bath!
Nah, you totes will still be able to. You'll just have to fit it round a job, is all. (Does 'delightful romantic fiction' include Truly Madly Viking? BECAUSE IT SHOULD.)

I don't hate her! I'm quite enjoying her integration into the group, even if I am rather bummed that OF COURSE the show has gone HOMG LOVE TRIANGE and OF COURSE she will probably end up fancying POTATOFACE BOBBIN anyway. I DO MISS MARIAN'S LOCKS, THOUGH. And I am excited for Guy's sister (Isabella?) next week. LET US HOPE SHE WILL BRING THE FIERCE. AND ALSO THAT I DON'T END UP SHIPPING HER WITH GUY.

Charlotte, I CAME THIS CLOSE to buying TMV the other day when I was doing a book binge, but it didn't make the cut when I had to factor postage into the equation. ONE DAY. ONE DAY I WILL ALLOW IT TO ROCK ME.

Yay for Kate-appreciating! I am quite happy with her fancying Bobbin. That pairs Guy all-the-more with Marian, to be honest. The thing with RA is that he does tend to have chemistry with just about everyone. (I wrote everything by mistake there first. Oops?) So while I really really hope there isn't, I won't be surprised if there is a faint flicker. I REALLY HOPE NOT THOUGH. Either way please, PLEASE fandom, no Giscest. PLEASE.

No way! HEE. One day, YOU SHOULD. Maybe when you get to NZ I can lend it to you then...or send it to you!

So it SHOULD. These are Vikings and rippling pectorals and randy she-whales we are talking about here!
