Good morning. *sniffle, snuffle, snork* No, I’m not still cathetic over last night’s episode of Downtown Abbey. (Although … )
I actually wasn’t feeling great when I got home from Corporate World last night, and unfortunately the trend seems to be continuing today, so I’m making this post a short one. I just wanted to update you all on my progress in the Not Just Jane Project. Sort of.
You see, once I got settled into the pocket-sized place last night, I tried to put on a socially appropriate smile and spend some time with Ms. Emma Woodhouse, I really did. But I have to admit that when I traded my grownup clothes for pajama pants, I also passed over Ms. Woodhouse in favour of the company of the Dashwood sisters. Yes, I put down “Emma” and picked up “Sense and Sensibility” instead. I know – I am being fickle with my literary affections. Jane would be scandalized.
But I have fond memories of the film adaption starring Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet, and I thought some time with the unpretentious
Dashwood sisters would better suit my mood. (And also that they’d be less likely to comment on the aforementioned pajama pants). And I was right – I read a lovely few chapters before drifting off to sleep on a cloud of Tylenol Cold and Flu medicine.
All of which is a long (and antihistamine-laced; sorry) way of saying that the bookshelf will be a bit out of order around here for a while. But I feel better already. And I’ll see you back here tomorrow for a (possibly medically-enhanced) Wordful Wednesday!
