  17. When this popped up in my email, I was dying—unfortunately the comment expression that didn’t go through. I hope I got that worked out. Anyway.
    I LOVE this, they’re accurate and hilarious. How on earth did you find some of those? XD
    My favorites are Pride and Prejudice, PotO, Les Misrables, Medea (I love me a well done John Mulaney reference), The Great Gatsby, and the Scarlet Pimpernel. All in all, great, hilarious post :D

    1. Haha! Thank you for trying again. ;)

      Aaaahh, thanks! These are all just from Pinterest! Sometimes random things will pop up on my feed and I'll go, "That's just random enough to potentially be useful in some future blog post." So now I save a lot of them, haha. ;)

      (John Mulaney is awesome.) Thank you!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :D

I've gotten really bad about replying in a timely manner, but it's always my intention to do so eventually. (Even though it doesn't always happen. ;))
