Lady 2: there isn't anything about me on goooogle, I mean, I must take it off if there is.....

It always seems to be a bit of a journey when Daisy goes to his farm, but of course that doesn't mean anything as the estate could be very wide spread. But there are other landowners in the area too.
Sorry for even bringing up the idea of Mr Mason being anything other than fatherly toward Daisy. I only mention it because I recently got back from visiting my 90-year-old cousin, a farmer, and a very sweet man but randy bugger who will go after anyone in a skirt. Age or family relationship is irrelavant. Not fair to layer that on to y'all, though, so my apologies!
There is such a thing as too much information,honest
I didn't get anything squicky from the Daisy/ William's father thing. He's just a kind old man who has lost his family, and Daisy is the closest thing to family he has left. Besides it has never been legal to marry one's father-in-law in the UK.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

There's a lot of Downton humour out there at the moment ... but this is my favourite so far. (And it's re: episode 5 so no spoilers here!)
If Downton Abbey happened entirely on Facebook
So much good funny here, but my faves:
"Tom Branson has posted a new photo in the album Sybil (the baby, not my dead wife)"
"Thomas has checked in to Jimmy Kent's knee."
"Mr Bates is attending the event Stocky Men Over 50 Walking Around and Around In Circles"

I adore "Life on Facebook" style posts. Slate.com used to do a White House one that was hilarious.
I've just watched tonight's 2-hour episode. So is there only one remaining?
I believe there is only one episode left, unfortunately. Having two hours tonight was great. Is it my imagination or is Lady Edith getting more attractive (noticed it first when she was meeting the magazine editor for the first time)? The biggest surprise for me tonight was Thomas giving Bates a cryptic message for O'Brien (about the soap). I'm surprised he'd kept that to himself once he figured out O'Brien was sticking the proverbial knife in him via Jimmy.
Maybe because it would have come out that he knew virtually since it happened but never said anything?

Thomas, you are not foul because you're gay.
However, the blackmail, petty theft, attempts to sabotage Bates, essentially wounding yourself to get out of the war after trying to get into a cushy non-combat position first, foray into black marketeering, and scheme to 'rescue' Isis after stealing her in the first place might make you want to reconsider other aspects of your life. (To say nothing of the way he treated William before the war, using Daisy to do it....yeah, I would say that being gay is about the one thing about you NOT foul.)
