I *heart* Colin Powell

Some will say that Colin Powell is giving Barack Obama his vote simply because he is African-American. Watch this video and tell me that General Powell hasn’t given his endorsement a serious amount of thought.

I wasn’t all that excited to watch this movie, and I can’t tell you why. I mean, I don’t know why, not that I can’t tell you why, like it’s a secret. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched a movie set in the 1800’s, and I guess it just didn’t light my fire. Anyway, it turned out to be a pretty good movie.

It’s based on the true story of what happened to Jane Austen when she was a 20-year-old aspiring writer. She falls in love with an insufferable womanizer at the same time that a wealthy young heir offers to marry her, even though she does not love him. For those of you that have read Austen’s novels, you will recognize a common theme here. I won’t spoil the ending for you…you’ll have to watch the movie for yourself.

It’s worth a rental, and is especially fun for women. My husband refused to watch it with me.

Enjoy!
