Keep posting your first exposures to romance in the post below. I love reading everyone’s stories. But moving on…
Guilty Pleasures, come on, we all have them. Whatâ€™s yours? Is it chocolate? Okay, if you are female and breathing that one is a given? Shoes or shopping in general?? What is it?
My guilty pleasure is watching period drama films. I love them! In fact, my sister comes over every Tuesday for a weekly dose of handsome, dashing men in cravats. The place that has really keyed me in on several period drama miniseries is YouTube. There is a real community of movie goers on there who love these types of films and they share their love through their videos. I canâ€™t tell you how many great conversations Iâ€™ve had with these ladies and how many DVDs Iâ€™ve purchased due to their creative undertaking.
I often wonder why I love the Period Drama so much. Iâ€™m sure it stems from my love for classic literature, history and romance. And darn it those lovely British men in cravats are just too beguiling. I did mention the cravats, didnâ€™t I?? 😉 Iâ€™d have to say my favorite â€˜recentâ€™ films in this genre would be Pride & Prejudice (2005), Persuasion (2007), North & South (2004) and Becoming Jane (2007). I could watch those ones over and over.
I just had to add a picture here of my favorite literary hero, Captain Wentworth, played here my the wonderful Rupert Penry Jones or as we refer to him over at YouTubeâ€”RPJ.
So, now Iâ€™ve shared. Letâ€™s hear some of your guilty pleasures. And if you too enjoy the Period Drama, please tell what your favorites are. Okay time for a tea and biscotti break. My dh just bought me a huge box of chocolate biscotti the other day. Gotta love the man.
