Emma (2009): "My Face When"

Due to the popularity of my post Pride and Prejudice: "My Face When" (my most popular post with over 200 pageviews) I decided to do a similar thing with facial expressions from Emma 2009. This post will not be nearly as long or as funny and probably not as popular, but hopefully it will be fun to read. Shall we begin? Let's.

Really. You surprise me. 
 My face when I have to act interested in what my friend is saying when I'm really not.

 My face when I defend homeschool to a public-schooler.

My face when I go in public and there are so many people. #homeschooler
(By the way, about hashtags...did you know I once had a whole discussion online with a fellow homeschooler about homeschoolers using hashtags? I used a bunch and then put #arehomeschoolersevenallowedtousehashtags? and we, two homeschoolers, proceeded to have a conversation in hashtags to prove that we are, indeed, allowed to do so. Sorry, totally random side-note, and if anyone thought I was at all normal before, you're welcome for removing that false idea from your mind. #homeschooler)

Related to the previous, 
my face when I go somewhere and see someone I don't like when I didn't expect to see them there.

My face when I say goodbye to my friends after church camp or youth conference.

My face when I see someone attribute a P&P'05 quote to Jane Austen.
Can you see that "-Jane Austen" down there?

 (This is just a continued reaction to the above.)

My face when I want to interrupt someone whom I know is wrong, and they just keep talking.

My face when I ask someone for the third time if they're sure they're all right and if they really don't need my help.

My face when I'm doing something in a room by myself and someone comes in.

My face when I'm bored and I would love to think of a blog post idea but it's simply too hot to think.

My face when I'm trying to convince my sibling(s) of something and I am forced to pull out the "Mom says!"

My face when I'm trying to read Dickens or Gaskell when I have more exciting books to read. 

Actually just my face when it's raining. I love rain in summer when I can get wet and it's still warm.

My face when I see more of the atrocious grammar that is too common on the internet. 

My face when I'm with my friend at some event and her crush walks in and I look at my friend.

My face when someone says something that's not true but it's close enough to the truth that I can't correct them without everyone saying "that's what they said!"
(Wow, very specific, Rae.)
My face when someone says they love Jane Austen.

My face when someone says they don't like Jane Austen.

"Please don't even go there."
My face when someone starts to talk about something I know will turn into a heated discussion.

When I'm sitting in a boring meeting or conversation and I either keep looking at the clock to see if the meeting is over yet or I keep looking for something else to entertain me throughout the tedium.

My face when one of my siblings says something they shouldn't in public.

And now, to finish, here is a lovely exhibition of some wonderful facial expressions in this wonderful movie.
This scene--!!!

Well, I hope that was somewhat entertaining. :) I hope you're having a lovely day!


  1. This was totally entertaining, Rae! I LOVE these sorts of posts!! Gaaahh! Where to start? So many of these were spot on!

    Your look when you want to interrupt someone and they just keep talking!!! Haha. Perfect. And when you're in a room by yourself and someone comes in. Love that one! :D Oh goodness! There's so many. "Mom says!" Hahaha. That's awesome. And the one about correcting someone when what they said was just slightly inaccurate. Heehee. Harriet totally has the right expression for that! I also really like the look you give your siblings when they say something in public that they shouldn't say. Yeah...I think I just liked this whole post!! ;)

    Oh my! Attributing THAT quote to Jane Austen? That's AWFUL! Just sayin'.

    This was a lovely post, Rae! I enjoyed it very much!! :D

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed this!! Thanks for your lovely comment!

  2. Love this!!! EW ABOUT THE 'bewitched' quote. JUST LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT IT. :-P

    1. FOR REAL. WHY. Uggggghhh. Well, you saw what my face looks like. ;)

  3. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I loved this post! :) Okay. :D Storytime: that not-actually-Jane quote reminded me of something equally awful/hilarious: I was cruising around on Pinterest (as one does) and I came across a cute little quote. The person who had written the caption on the pin wrote something like "wôW ohHhh i just LØVÊÉĒ MR DAAAARRRCCYYY WOOWO hekeHJIijGFU" and All That. But here was the quote: "'Your modesty, so far from doing you any disservice, rather adds to your other perfections . . . Almost as soon as I entered the house I singled you out as the companion of my future life.' -Mr Darcy"
    Yep. That's right. They were freaking out . . . over how "sweet" and "cute" a quote from MR COLLINS was. I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry! 😂 But I'm pretty sure my face looked like yours when you saw the p&p '05 quote attributed to out Jane :) (and you know what else kind of bugs me? People spelling it as Jane Austin. I saw a picture that said "every time you spell it as 'Jane Austin', a single man in possession of a large fortune DIES." And that pretty much sums it up for me 😉)

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you like it!
      What the Wickham. That is...what the Wickham. Wow.
      SERIOUSLY!!!! Please, people, its Austen-with-an-E! It's like when I was reading some of Lynn Austin's books and when my family saw me reading, the FIRST thing every one of them said was, "Is she related to Jane Austen?" I explained so many times that their names aren't even spelled the same; no, they're not related!!!
      I've seen that too. Perfect. :)
      Thanks for your lovely long comment, Anna!
