and you thought the classics were boring

“[Robert Louis] Stevenson died suddenly on December 3, 1894, not of the long-feared tuberculosis, but of a cerebral hemorrhage.  The kindly author of Jekyll and Hyde went down to the cellar to fetch a bottle of his favorite burgundy, uncorked it in the kitchen, abruptly called out to his wife, “What’s the matter with me?  What is this strangeness?  Has my face changed?” — and fell to the floor.”

One thought on “and you thought the classics were boring

  1. ed norton the Hot Priest

    I am so happy to hear that someone else is in love with ed norton. I thought he was hot as a teenage murderer in Primal Fear (disturbing yet true) and I actually rented Keeping the Faith last week and made Matt watch it with me and had to control myself because of the norton hotness.
    Random Fact: I ran into Ed Norton in the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in LA when he was dating Selma Hayek and he is very hot in person.
