Breakfast in Bed: The Final Frontier

Ladies and gentleman, we’ve had a break through.  It all started Sunday morning when I found myself snuggled in bed with The Wedding Date for the third installment of the 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries. (Yes, we’re watching Jane Austen together.  It was part of the deal I made to watch Star Wars.) The only…

Easy Valentine’s Gifts for the Jane Austen Lover

Yesterday I wrote about my college boyfriend (who bought me the complete works of Jane Austen for Valentine’s Day) and my current beau, The Wedding Date (who bought me a Jane Austen necklace for Christmas instead). As noted, the complete works don’t make for a very good gift if your significant other already has the…

How to Blow the Curve: A Modern Man’s Guide to Romantic Gifts

Shortly before Valentine’s Day during my senior year of college, my boyfriend-at-the-time asked me to name my favorite author. “Jane Austen,” I replied.  Wasn’t that obvious? Evidently not, because on Valentine’s Day he presented with the complete works on Jane Austen, all bound together in a single hardcover volume. When I didn’t immediately burst into…

The Voice of Reason… or Something

I guess the point I was trying to make is that anyone in a position …

Persuasion

Persuasion.  We’ve all felt it.  In fact, there’s an entire Jane Austen novel on the subject, entitled (not surprisingly) “Persuasion.”  It wasn’t one of her best, as evidenced by the fact that it’s not been turned into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Keira Knightly or Kate Winslett (in fact, it took me four tries to make…

Love, or a Literary Exercise?

Thank God my data plan now supports unlimited texting.  Date #7 and I exchanged 82 messages yesterday.  Eighty two!  Granted, he was sitting on a plane at the time so he was presumably bored and subsequently grateful to receive 50 text messages from Yours Truly, even if the majority of these were written with the…
