Compliments

Mr DarcyMy wife gave me a very profound compliment the other day when she said that I reminded her of Mr Darcy from Pride and Predjudice. We had just been drinking lots of red wine and watching Bridget Jones' Diary, so I expect she had Colin Firth in mind. Or maybe Laurence Olivier? I'm chuffed either way - even if he is an epitome of the dominant patriarchal male.

In response I would just like to say that my wife, especially with her current hair colour and cut, reminds me of Servalan from Blake's Seven. This is about the highest compliment that I can give.

Sheesh. You're brave. My wife would hunt me down and drive a stake through my heart if I called her Servalan. That or let her android minions drain my blood serum for food.
