Welcome to Pemberley, Kelly...but, so long as you post here on THIS BB, you must always remember the following passage: ;-)
"She was more disturbed by Mr. Knightley's not dancing than by anything else. THere he was among the standers-by, where he ought not to be; he ought to be dancing, not classing himself with the husbands and the fathers, and whist-players...so young as he looked! He could not have appeared to greater advantage perhaps anywhere, than where he had placed himself. His tall, firm, upright figure, among the bulky forms and stooping shoulders of the elderly men, was such as Emma felt must draw everybody's eyes; and, excepting her own partner (Frank), there was not one among the whole row of young men who could be compared with him..."
And by the way, I thought John Carson was kind of cute!
