Guess what I'm watching?

If you guessed "the 1995 BBC/A&E production of Pride & Prejudice - AGAIN!" then award yourself a gold star.

See, S is reading P&P for 12th-grade English class, and her teacher has exhorted the class to find and watch this production to assist them with their understanding of the novel. And poor S spent the 12-hours between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. today in earnest worship of the porcelain god, so she asked to spend the evening with me, and watching P&P, since she determined it wouldn't make her nauseated through crazy camera work or flashing lights or any such other sort of thing.

To borrow from Caroline Bingley, "I am all astonishment" that S is voluntarily watching an Austen film with me.
