In the beginning, 
there was Pride & Prejudice, 
the 1995 BBC/A&E version. 
It aired first in the land of the English 
and other European countries, 
then crossed the ocean to be seen by North Americans 
and later, Australians and Japanese. 
And Firth spoke, 
and while he spoke seldom in this version, 
his melifluous tones and dark, penetrating looks 
struck deep into the 
hearts and souls of women 
all 'round the world.
 
And these women went to their e-mail 
and to the internet to seek out all they 
could find about this man they called Firth. 
A notable few of these women had actually 
noticed him before, 
frolicing in medieval France, 
 then frolicing with a French woman 
in 18th century France, 
killing Peter O'Toole, dying, and then frolicing 
with a dead French woman (in a 20th century purgatory), 
being a socialist in 1930s England 
and frolicing with no one 
(while pretending not to like cricket), 
restoring Catholic wall murals in 1919 Yorkshire 
while wearing a mustache 
and wishing he could frolic with the 
vicar's un-French wife(but not). 
 But most had not noticed this brown haired, 
brown eyed, brown-mole-on-his-neck young man who has 
great thighs gained by significant equestrian experience 
(as we were soon to see)! 
It was not until Darcy appeared, with his dark 
curls and wet shirt, that hundreds of women 
found each other during their search for the true 
meaning of Firth 
(and the real color of his hair and eyes). 
These women shared many things in common - 
brilliance, introspection, keen 
observance, wit, beauty, 
and most importantly, 
a lusty passion for Colin 
that has lasted through many weeks and 
knows no bounds. 
 
And then came unto us Robin, 
the Beautiful Musician from Canada, 
who joined these women together 
into a Colin-y named 
by Rai. Robin became our Queen 
and Rai her jester and 
the rest her loyal subjects. 
To ensure that the important work 
of the Colin-y was accomplished, Robin 
appointed The Royal Census Taker, 
Archivist, Polltaker, Digester, Picture Taker, 
Caterer, and in keeping with 
current trends, a Webmeister. 
Soon into this land of Firth and honey 
came dozens more, and we gave them quite 
a rib_bing. Their wit and sensitivity 
soons wins them places in the Colin-y. 
 Our Queen tests the worthiness of all subject wanna-be's
and it is up to the potential Friend of Firth to find her 
email and beg permission to join. May you be found worthy! 
 Thus spake ZaraFirthstra...
