Happy New Year! and The King's Speech

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful beginning to 2011.

I just thought I'd do an update. I added blog buttons to Elegance of Fashion, which you can find here or at the top of the page at the little tab that says Blog Buttons. There are only a few so far, but I will be adding more and some in a little longer size (so it's like a mini banner). Keep an eye out for new blog buttons; they are in the making!

On another note, today I went and saw...

The King's Speech!

My mom and I went to the theater this afternoon to see it. We both enjoyed it! Pride and Prejudice fans might be interested in seeing it: it features both Colin Firth (who was Mr. Darcy) and Jennifer Ehle (who was Elizabeth Bennet). And, briefly, also seen from Pride and Prejudice in The King's Speech was David Bamber (Mr. Collins). I didn't recognize him until my mom pointed it out to me. He was in there for about two or three minutes. Fans of Emma and Cranford will recognize Michael Gambon (Mr. Woodhouse in Emma, Mr. Holbrook in Cranford); he was in there for a couple of scenes. The King's Speech is rated R for language (there is heavy language in two scenes, but not so much in the rest of the movie). I think I'll review this movie for my weekly review, so keep an eye out for the review of this movie.

That's it for the update. Again, I wish you a Happy New Year!


  1. I've heard about this movie, but didn't realize it was out yet. I'll have to see what Mom thinks about our seeing it! Now I'll go check out the buttons...

  2. It was a good movie. The only things objectionable was a couple of scenes with heavy language (though the language is never aimed at anyone) and there is some talk about a scandal. Still, it was a good movie. I'm going to review it for the weekly review.

    I haven't put up new buttons yet. I'll try to get them out in a couple of days. I'm trying to come up with a couple of them so I can release them at once and instead of individually.

  3. The King's Speech is a film I really want to see! I can't wait for your review, that will be so interesting! I don't think it's in cinemas anywhere near me so I'll have to wait till it comes out on DVD.

  4. Miss Laurie,
    It was really good! On their Facebook page on Christmas, they said that they were supposed to be coming to more locations; they posted an article with that post ( that said, "it is set to expand to around 600 locations on Saturday, Dec. 25." I know I had to wait a while for it to come to a theater near me.
