Is it as frenetic as Madagascar? I wanted to strangle those animals - LOL!

Just re-watched Queen of the Damned. It is truly scary how much Stuart Townsend looks like Kiera Knightley. Thank goodness he didn't stay as Aragorn in Lord of the Rings, for which part he was originally cast!

I think ST is prettier than KK! I can't imagine why they cast him as the original Aragorn though, he's way too young. Thank goodness they saw sense in time to recast!

I've been watching the first four hours of The Thorn Birds mini-series on the Lifetime cable channel. Meggie and Ralph and all that dusty passion! Sort of the Bella and Edward for the 80's?

I loved The Thornbirds, both the book and the series. I always thought it was a pity about Richard Chamberlain, a waste of a handsome man for us ladies! He made a brilliant Ralph de Bricassart (sp?).

Oh yes, he was the Mr Darcy (Firth version) of the time wasn't he? ;)

Haven't read the book though.
