There used to be a lot more words in the world. Now we're all about short, blunt sentences. So obvious. So boring.

Kim I LOVE Hardy.. I really do, he's like my Nora Roberts... I wanted to name our second daughter Tess, but then I felt bad it was a girl and let Maurice name her, so she is Marley Tess.


message 5: by J (new) - rated it 4 stars

J Marley Tess. Does she realize what a cool name she has?

I watched Under the Greenwood Tree again the other night and my mind's been pretty full of Thomas Hardy ever since.


message 6: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim Yes, she does. She's very hip.

Under the Greenwood Tree? Tell me more.


message 7: by J (new) - rated it 4 stars

J BBC or PBS? Whichever, it's beauteous. You may have to send Maurice from the room though when they wash their hands together. That hot.
