Well, if that ain't the truth...

Magnet #871 - Well-behaved women

For realz.

I bought this magnet mainly because I was feeling pretty reckless, figuring that the stuff that I'd recently gotten off my chest had landed me in hot water, and unable to do a thing about it. I even had a whole magnetpost in my head to write about it.

Of course, the gleam in this chickie's eyes is kind of scary, and I'm pretty sure that wild-eyed look is exactly what was on my face, in between the sniffles. But, upon reflection of a couple of weeks, I'm able to see things a little clearer. Not different, really, but clearer. And that's a good thing.

But, I'm using this magnet for today, because I'm halfway through Season 2 of The Tudors and I gotta say, that Anne Boleyn? Man, she was not well behaved. Not. At. All.

Yes, I'm on Season 2. I'm mainlining like crazy, thank goodness for Netflix Instant Watch. And it's not even like it's the best show ever. While I'm enjoying all the costumes and the history and seeing historic United Kingdom, the storyline is very little repetitive - Catherine/Anne, divorce, divorce, divorce, I want a son, secret marriage, I'm the head of the church, sign the oath, sign the oath, sign the oath, off with his head, off with his head, etc.

Maybe that will all change once Anne loses her head. It's hard for me to figure out how the seasons are arc'd - there's only four seasons, but there were six wives, and I don't even think we've met Jane Seymour yet, unless I've missed her.

But for now, I'm loving the Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Henry Cavill, Callum Blue, and Jeremy Northam, though I'm sad to have lost the Duke of Gloucester, William Compton and even Wolsey.

And the chick playing Anne's cute, too. Just enough innocence mixed with devious smirkety-smirkedness to know for sure she's constantly up to something.

Talk about making history.
Pin It!
