Fundraising Ends: Thank You All

I think everybody who kicked in to the drive should have received an e-mail from me, but I want to say this to everybody everybody anyway, because it’s important: Thank you all for supporting this blog. It means a lot to know that what we’re doing here matters to you.

Thanks to you we’re going to be able to do some good things this year. You rock the house. Have a speech, best shouted drunkenly to the tops of skyscrapers in an unfamiliar city but not bad at all here either:

  1. Thanks to you A and the whole fab team here!!! Oh, that scene brought back memories of my “smitten by teh Branagh” days…back when he and Em’ were a couple and I thought they were wicked awesome together. Then, once he dabbled w/HBC on “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” and his ego was out of control (though still talented), I lost ‘it’ for him. Emma is still my fave female performer and I just LOVE that she is married to Greg Wise now – they are adorable. It’s nice to know that romance still exists in real life.
    KB back in the day was my dreamboat (well, my Brit one, John Cusack will always be my homeboy!).
    Hugs and keep up the great work!!!

  2. Geez, Elspeth, we must have been separated at birth. I still can’t watch Helena in Howard’s End without feeling cranky. And I feel similarly about Penelope Cruz. (Not that Tom or Kenneth (Ken, honey, Wild Wild West? *Srsly*?) are worth pining for, but Nicole and Emma deserved better from both their husbands and their husbands’ costars.)
    BTW, have you read Emma’s Sense and Sensibility screenplay and diaries? There’s a really hysterical letter in there from Imogen Stubbs writing as Lucy Steele. Totally, utterly dead-on.

  3. BuggyQ, I have that, but I haven’t read it in some time. I have “Thompson” in my geneological history – so I am hoping that means Em’s my kinswoman of some degree. I could imagine chilling w/her and laughing my rear off. And you know Hugh Laurie or her mom Phyllida Law or her sis would drop in and just make it almost a trip to hospital to stop the pain from laughing so hard and breathing so little! The wit, the humor, the talent – I want to be there! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I once saw an interview w/Em’ and her honey Greg was just off-camera and they clicked over to him and he was just giving her “the gaze” like she’s the best thing ever in the world… Now, mind you they were already married, having dated for a few years and having had Gaia – and to see him still giving her that wonderful ‘regard’, it just made me delightfully jealous. ๐Ÿ™‚ He was such a good “bad” guy as Willoughby, but he must be an awesome real life good guy to win Em’s heart! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish them both the best.
    But I have to admit, watching “Much Ado About Nothing” STILL makes me swoon. Her Beatrice to Ken’s Benedict is just a treat. Should I ever find the right guy…that would be a cool theme (costume-wise) for the wedding. (though, right now, should I find the right guy…we are biffing to the JP straightaway!!!)
    Ah…now I want to go read something intelligent and witty…
    (I highly recommend PG Wodehouse if anyone is interested…a hoot!)

  4. The thing about Ken that always struck me was that I would probably love the idea of being in love with him much more than the reality–and I suspect that’s what happened to Emma, too. Best quote evah from Much Ado, from Ken, “Love me…? WHY?” Ahem.
    But yes, Ken in the beard, in that uniform, totally swoonworthy. That movie is lovingly known among my friends as “The Movie of Cute Men”–I mean, Denzel, Ken, Keanu (even if he can’t act his way out of a paper bag), Robert Sean Leonard (saw him in person in Our Town with Gemma Redgrave in London on Thanksgiving Day, 1991–mmmmmmmmm. I still think of him over turkey), hell, even the extras were cute. Can you imagine being on set for that? Sigh…
    And I love your theme wedding idea! Good luck finding the right guy. Just remember, the good ones are worth the wait. ๐Ÿ˜‰
