I'm participating in my first meme, to come up with ten things I love (like) starting with a letter chosen
by [livejournal.com profile] everytimeyougo

The letter chosen for me is R.  This was more difficult than I thought...

1. Romance novels (historical, paranormal, fantasy etc.) I'm a sucker for them (well written of course), been reading them since I was a teenager.

2. Renaissance; A fascinating period in history.

3. R rated movies, cause they're usually more fun.

4. Red meat (I am so not a vegetarian/vegan).

5. Roses (especially lavendar and tea roses).

6. Rakes and rogues

7. Respect

8. Rainy days (not for days on end, but every so often).

9. Raven hair

10. Reading

I'm with you on 5, 6 (!), 7, 10 and some varieties of 1. And not at all with you on 4, as I actually am a vegetarian!

Ideally, I would love to be a vegetarian. I'm just not sure if I could give up a good steak or cheeseburger. :) I'm weak.

Rainy days...sometimes you feel so cozy at home when it's so nasty outside :)

With you on number 1! Do you like period dramas?

I love period dramas! So far my favorite is Pride and Prejudice (the Colin Firth version). :)

I love that version, I am also a big fan of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. I think I've seen every adaptation of period drama out there. Have you seen the new Wuthering Heghts?

I haven't been able to see it. I think I might be able to watch it online though. Recently I've become sort of obsessed with Wuthering Heights because of Kate Bush's song of the same title, lol. It's so eerily beautiful I can't stop listening to it.

I just watched the video to the song. It's awesome! I couldn't understand a lot of the words though, does she sing about the actual novel?

Let me know if you find somewhere to watch it online, I wasn't able to find a download link yet.

Kate is singing as the ghost of Cathy in the song and how she's going back to Wuthering Heights and Heathcliff. Here are the lyrics.

Wuthering Heights lyrics

Someone on Youtube uploaded Wuthering Heights, although I don't know if it's the whole thing. Here's the link:

Wuthering Heights

It used to be available at the PBS site, but it is no longer available due to rights restrictions. :(
