Save those Goya capers as a “fun snack” for when you’re watching bloated corpses float by in the floodwaters.

@Megano! Right? That makes me see an upside to natural disaster!

I can’t tell whether or not I should be worried here in Montreal. On the one hand, the forecast doesn’t seem so bad (light rain and gusting winds between 30-45 km/hr). On the other, it’s Montreal and our crumbling infrastructure is just waiting for a good wind gust to knock out the power.

More importantly, what is that image from it is driving me mad that I can’t remember

@Kerry@twitter An early Pride and Prejudice? Sense and Sensibility? It’s setting off my Jane Austen radar.

@Kerry@twitter It’s Anne Hathaway & James McAvoy from the film Becoming Jane. So yes, there’s an Austen inspiration!
