Just so you know, I’ve accomplished nothing (nothing!) from my list of things to do today. I can’t shake this nasty cold and thus here I sit, wrapped in my blankie, sniffling and coughing. Achoo!
I’ve spent a good portion of this day watching Horatio Hornblower on DVD. It stars Ioan Gruffudd (from Amazing Grace) as well as many other fine actors. I adore the realism of life on the British ships during the Napoleonic Wars, the cunning of young Hornblower and the attention to historic detail. There’s nothing like a British naval battle when you’re stuck on the sofa with the sniffles.
Don’t forget to enter the Clocky Contest which ends Friday, June 13, 2008.
