Do you think Laura Carmichael is sick of people being like, “you’re SO MUCH BETTER LOOKING THAN LADY EDITH IN REAL LIFE?!!!!!!” all the time? As I’ve said here before, it’s better than the alternative, but it might be a little tiresome. That said, maybe she should just stop reading this now, if she’s sick of hearing it:

I think she looks great, and very non-Lady Edith (which is a compliment; Heather and I recently decided that saying, “she’s such a Lady Edith” is basically the meanest thing you can say about a person), although I think the blue eyeshadow might have been a step too far. It’s the Lady Edith Step. (I might also have worn dark hose. Am I turning into Zooey Deschanel? There are worse fates.)

It goes without saying, I hope, that I am very excited about the return of Downton next month. We need to work on a new drinking game for the new season. Like, “if the Pig Farmer falls for Lady Edith, drink your entire cocktail. If they find the Gutenberg Bible, DRINK THE WHOLE BOTTLE.” (NO SPOILERS.)
