In short, he’s a selfish dick: Mr. Rochester and the romantic hero

“And it doesn’t hurt that Mr. Rochester is, for my money, the sexiest guy in literature.”
—April Lindner, “Author’s Note,” Jane.

Jane meets this guy who loves her for who she is, who doesn’t demand that she change her behavior or her manners. He says that she is his “second self.” And then she finds out that he’s been dishonest with her from the very beginning—she realizes that he has shared almost nothing of himself.

Rochester is that guy you meet in college, who shares all your interests and just gets you. And then you find out that he has a girlfriend back home; instead of owning up to this deception, he talks about how “she doesn’t get him like you do” and “he can’t leave her right now” but he is still “definitely interested in a relationship.”

In short, he’s a selfish dick.

Summer is coming and if you have long hair like me, that means you might be looking for a more creative way than a ponytail or messy bun to get it all up and off your shoulders.  Who better to turn to for ideas than the Leia Organa and Padme Amidala?  While their hairdos are intended for people with far more hair than most of us, they serve as great starting points and inspiration.

Check out for the complete and simple tutorial for Princess Leia’s Return of the Jedi hairdo while she’s on Endor.

I did these two weekends ago for the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi! Super easy tutorial by Bria, even though I messed up the big back bun:
