So I got one of those small rectangular things that people are always looking at and occasionally talking into as though there's a person on the other end. I like him. I gave him a green font.

I've been reading Austen because she is free, and wow! Pride and Prejudice is written entirely in dialogue! I did not know.

I don't know what any of the people look like, what they wear, what their houses look like, where they live, what the room looks like, what they are doing either between or while talking, or who is in the room. Sometimes I am not sure who is talking! Like with Fruits Basket, I must summon up my nebulous mental list of who might be nearby whatever formless place the speaker is at, and subtract anyone mentioned by name in the speech.

I'm sure this is simply because I'm not paying enough attention? Or perhaps this is why those actors always look vaguely uncomfortable to be physically present with visible characteristics in a definite location, sometimes even doing things, while declaiming the immortal words.

I like Darcy. He has good words. The hero lady has good words too. I hope they talk more soon.
