Oo nga noh. DC, bakit 17? Alam mo bang lucky number ko yan :") Kinilig ako (HAHA ANG FEELER)

Sobrang di talaga ako excited dito. Halata noh? HAHA


Veronica | 734 comments Nice poster DC! Kaya lang, sa tingin mo, ma-enganyo kaya ang mga boys natin magbasa? Haha :D


Aldrin (fullybooked) | 223 comments Ang ganda ng poster! Mas meengganyo ako kung mas magiging kamukha pa ni Keira Knightley yung cover girl. Hehe.

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Bwahaha Aldrin!

Pwede rin kaya magka-Darcy version ng poster? Haha. Colin Firth, please? :D


message 14: by DC (new) - added it

DC (disguisedcyclone) | 437 comments Salamat sa lahat ng nag-like ng poster! Hahaha!

Maria at Ronnie, ayoko rin siyang masyadong girly na usapan. Okey naman na storyteller si Austen, bagaman may love sa usapan. Overall look on 1800s England siya (kaya ayoko rin ng masyadong lovey dovey na diskusyon - nang may mga isyung pwedeng namnamin) :)


Aldrin (fullybooked) | 223 comments Oo nga dapat may Darcy version din na parang GQ para fair. Haha. :p


message 16: by DC (new) - added it

DC (disguisedcyclone) | 437 comments Hmmm, alternate cover ba? Kaso may kasama xD

Alternate Cover: TFG F2F10

Check ko pa kung may Darcy lang :P

Monique (attymonique) | 2126 comments Wooot! Parang Mars vs. Venus ang dating ng alternative poster, haha! Nice one. ;)


Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments OMG parang Trese na colored version. Gandaaaaaa

Reev Robledo (reevrobledo) | 128 comments Btw, the invitations DC gave away during the F2F for P&P was truly a labor of love. Nice touch. You should post the pics here. :) Now we know who to ask for wedding invites and giveaways. :P

DC (disguisedcyclone) | 437 comments Hello! As I have mentioned in the first post, I will be placing forth activity ideas I have on this thread. (If you have activity ideas yourself, please let me know!)

Here's my first idea:

[ACTIVITY: GROUP SCREENING OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE]

Guys, what do you think of watching the 1995 BBC TV series and 2005 movie of Pride and Prejudice together? We could watch "together" an episode or two every Wed starting Oct 3 (that's my noted "day of rest" in the online discussion reading plan), then watch the rest during the days pre-F2F. We post a time (probably even have a chatroom up), and just comment galore while we watch "together". (Synchronized playing, ACTIVATE!) Maybe even have livestream or voice chat (although this seems more complicated).

OR, if the schedule's too tight, we could at least facilitate a group-watching of the 2005 movie on October 19, Friday night. Online movie group date! :D

Of course, I could already hear the ARRRRs of the pirates around, as I'm not sure it's easy to procure original copies of these. Your thoughts? :)


Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments Yoho yoho! I have digital copies of the BBC adaptation (DVD naman for 2005) if anyone needs :D I'm game!

What should I do to have one? :D
I'm so excited for all of these activities.


Biena (The Library Mistress) | 447 comments I'd love to go. I'd definitely get someone to go on duty for me this day. Please please. What do I do to get an invite?


message 40: by Mae (new) - rated it 3 stars

Mae (jamaeca) | 330 comments The group screening idea sounds great, DC! I'd definitely be up for that. :)

Aaron Vincent (aaronvincent) | 2053 comments Love the poster!

The BBC adaptation group screening sounds good. I'm willing to participate. (Alexa and I sorta do this during Doctor Who livestreams. It's fun pero gusto matry marami participant! hehe) Maybe we can do it via skype forum if everyone has a skype account. Can we schedule it at night? Maybe before or after dinnertime? (Seryoso, I love the idea.)


message 42: by Tina (new) - rated it 4 stars

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Google+ hangout? Haha if anyone is still there, anyway?

I love the idea btw. I'm on night shift next month, so I don't know if I can do any video conferences, but I can definitely Skype. Haha. Then we can post the logs here or something. :D


DC: I have the same wax seal thing, but of course, with the letter T. :D I can't bear to use it just yet. Hee. (And no reasons to use it, anyway)


Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments Biena, just show up on the venue and then say hi and hello. :)

Go ako diyan sa group screening. Now, where should I get a copy? FYI, don't suggest downloading anywhere because our dear discussion leader has an advocacy against pirates. :D


message 44: by Reev (new)

Reev Robledo (reevrobledo) | 128 comments If there was a venue where we could all watch together, okay ba yun sa inyo? Or do you guys prefer kanya kanyang nood na lang?


message 45: by Mae (new) - rated it 3 stars

Mae (jamaeca) | 330 comments Although it's a bit more distracting (since you have to keep one eye on the video and the other on the chat/forum), I think the simultaneous online viewing/chatroom idea that DC proposed might be more feasible. But then again if people are game naman, I guess fun din to actually get together and watch. Still, doing it online might encourage more people to participate and maybe even join the actual F2F later on. /2cents


Maria Ella (mariaellabetos) | 1351 comments aw. i'm on forever night shift. skype kaya? make it weekend. please? salamat nang marami.

makakatulong po kayo sa bampirang accountant promise. :)

Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments Or DC! If you know how to livestream it from your computer, pwede rin! I watch Doctor Who livestream every week and there's a chat room at the side (when the viewers don't watch it full screen) where people can talk and stuff. For people who don't want that, you can just click the option for full screen :>


Aaron Vincent (aaronvincent) | 2053 comments Siguro we can try week 1 muna with simultaneous viewing + skype forum. Wait lang, 6 55-minute episodes siya so pano hahatiin kung October 3 magstart? 2 episodes per week?
