Speaking of birthdays this is my second to last "pic a day" until my 44th birthday. This is day 43 so here I am from last year at age 43. I really like this picture of me. I attempted to cut my hair (well shave it) and I had the wrong guard on the clippers and managed to cut it shorter then it's ever been but it was a happy mistake and I think I looked pretty good almost bald. One more day and this picture project will be over.
Today I watched the seventh episode of Outlander, titled "The Wedding"
Marriage to a Scot seems to be the only legal wayout to save Claire from falling into the paws of Black Jack Randall. And Jamie accepts to become her husband
and protect her. Claire is overwhelmed by circumstances that are
forcing her into becoming an adulteress and a bigamist. The hasty
marriage takes place and, in order to be legal, it must be consummated
|Claire's Wedding Dress|
I loved the interaction between Jamie and Claire, the sex scenes were nicely done and not gratuitous. This was pretty much like the previous episode where you had two actors talking back and forth but like with last weeks episode this one worked just as well. And I have to say Claire's wedding dress was GORGEOUS!!!
Next week will be the mid season finale and then we have to wait until April of 2015 for the other half of season one... UGH!!
Downton Abbey season five has started and I watched episode one. Here's a brief synopsis: The general Election of 1924 brings a Labour government into power, to the consternation of Robert and Carson, though many of the staff are pleased to have a prime minister from the working class. A village delegation, building a war memorial to local dead, requests Carson, not Robert, to head its committee and the class-bound butler feels awkward, ensuring the earl is made a patron. Tim Drewe tells Lady Edith he knows that Marigold, the daughter he and his wife have adopted, is her child whilst Lady Mary receives another proposal from Tony Gillingham. Violet organizes a lunch party to match Isobel with Lord Merton though Isobel resists and at Robert and Cora's anniversary supports Sarah Bunting and Tom's that the war was futile. Robert immediately takes a dislike to Sarah. Barrow continues to pressurize Baxter to disclose damning information on John Bates but, encouraged by the adoring Molesley, she tells Cora her secret, that she was imprisoned for theft from an employer, so the plan backfires on Barrow. However he becomes a hero for rescuing the unhappy Edith, who has accidentally started a fire in her bedroom. Subsequent evacuation leads to the discovery of young footman Jimmy, nude in bed with his former employer, saucy guest Lady Anstruther, prompting Robert to call for the boy's dismissal.
