    I've seen more hot bartender guys than hot pharmacists. Then again, most of them were gayer than a Pride and Prejudice Christmas.
    Alcohol tends to taste better than meds, though. 4-0-1

    I've just found my new favorite phrase. Seriously, is there a straight man alive who liked Pride and Prejudice? (trick question, any man that says they liked it is not straight by default.)

    Does it count that I pretended to like it to make my wife(I think she was still just my girlfriend at the time) happy? I have claimed to like a lot of crap in order to improve my chances of getting some sex.

    This is acceptable, encouraged, and the only appropriate use of Jane Austin.

    I've actually never read any Austen. I've read several by the Brontes, but never anything by Jane Austen. Come to think of it, my "forced high school classics"(e.g. Scarlet Letter, Pride and Prejudice, etc.) section is pretty meager. I think the only common "High school classics" I read was the Iliad in middle school and Romeo and Juliet as a freshman. Sophomore year was Beloved, Cry the Beloved Country, and Othello. Junior year was Hamlet, Wuthering Heights, and Tartuffe. Senior year was the Oresteia, Rape of the Lock, and Candide.
    Then again, I completely skipped English II and went to English III as a sophomore. I think English II is where so many of the regular "forced high school classics" are.
    I have an entire shelf of classics that I've read most of, just never was forced to read them for school. Hell, I read Jane Eyre in 5th or 6th Grade..

    Nice. The best critique of Jane Eyre I ever read was something like, "A great book if it were 200 pages shorter." It is one reason English teachers and I never got along. A book is not a great work of literature just because 98% of teenagers hate it. Sometimes they are just not that good.

    As an English major, I had to read quite a bit of Austen. I didn't like most of it.

    I missed a lot of the "classics" that NK just referenced, actually. I figure I'm not really missing out. But I have been known to enjoy Jane Eyre.

    Jane Eyre was not bad, just too long. Though that is my complaint about much of the writing of that time. And it is not length I am against, just unnecessary length.

    I'm a Stephen King fan, so length, even extraneous length, doesn't bug me. (That's what she said.) It's authors that spend 5 pages describing the fucking flower the protagonist is hold that bug me. (*coughJeanAuelcough*) I have a handful of books where I've read maybe a third of it and finished, because I skimmed past the unnecessary exposition. I really don't need 3 pages describing the guy's shirt or his ex's hair.
