So I did what any responsible adult would do when they have pages and pages of things to do.
I watched Gone With the Wind. All 4 hours of it. I even watched the intermission. No joke. Did you know Gone With the Wind had an intermission? Well it does, and it's the most romantic intermission I've ever watched. I didn't even get up to go to the bathroom.
Gone With the Wind is not the same as I remember it to be 25 years ago. Scarlett O'hara is a stupid stupid woman now. She's got sass, sure, and she's beautiful. But she's a brat with a capital RAT.
I used to feel sorry for her--poor thing in love with Ashley Wilkes all those years.
Now I just think she's as dumb as a doorknob. How can she not see that Rhett Butler is a total stud muffin.
And that Ashley Wilkes is a wimp. Her big toe could boss him around.
Sure he's noble and he's nice, yada yada, but COME ON, ASHLEY! Grow a spine, dude! Why would you give a tamn about that spoiled, selfish Miss Scarlett when you've got Melanie?
What a class act. (My sister is named after her and rightly so.)
Ain't that just like life? You're dangling like a diva around the neck of your gift horse and all you can do is look it in the mouth.
(Stupid, stupid woman!)
