:lol: She could finish the book on her own, I am sure.

I think I'd read it


I have no idea if she has social media.


I saw an interview with Hugh Grant where he said Emma is not remotely sane. He said she has to measure the weight of food in her hands before eating it.

:look: Hmmmm. She would have been fun at one of Jane's dinners.

Jane would've written a strange character based on her.


I saw this video of Elizabeth being savage for 8 min and it made me laugh

That's just the way I ask about people: Who is the man with the quizzical brow? :D

LilMouse 04-17-2022 06:34 PM

:lol:
I wish we still spoke to people like Austen characters AND danced liked Austen characters.

Why? Maybe he was kidding.

If he was kidding, he did it so dead-pan that it came off as truth.

All of the Austen movies have great dances! I would like to learn them.

LilMouse 04-18-2022 06:35 PM

Would you ever go to England with a Jane Austen fan group?

BehrItAll 04-18-2022 07:56 PM

Sure!

They might even teach us the dances :woot:

IndyFan 04-19-2022 04:57 AM

That would be a great trip; I will have to see if they have Austen group tours.

LilMouse 04-19-2022 11:16 AM

They do have the Austen Book Club book narrated by Richard Armitage. I bet they learn dances in that.

Here's a good one:

Jane Austen Tour

Take your groups back to Georgian England... a civilised time of country dances , afternoon teas, small villages and grand houses.

HIGHLIGHTS
Jane's childhood home in Steventon.

Chawton, where she revised and decided to publish her most famous works and the museum of Austen memorabilia.

Winchester, where she died and is buried.
Bath and the famous Pump Room, Assembly Rooms and Jane Austen Centre.
Lyme Regis, which featured in Persuasion.
Picturesque Lacock, used as a location in Emma and Pride and Prejudice.
Chatsworth, potentially the inspiration for Pemberley, Darcy's family home and the location for Death Comes to Pemberley.
Sudbury and Haddon Halls, used as locations in Pride and Prejudice.
British Library to see her writing desk and manuscript.
