It is the long weekend, hurray! I am tempted by Love and Friendship, even though I am not convinced from the reviews so far that any of the reviewers have ever read Austen. I have never read Lady Susan either, but I have grasped the concept that Austen is not all about bonnets. Above all I am definitely, effinitely, going to do some writing.
Finally, in case there is anyone in the world who hasn't seen this story, I know that in future when I have a bad day I shall cheer myself up by taking a moment to think "On the plus side, a 3m python didn't emerge from the toilet and bite me on the penis." The gentleman in question is (a) doing well, and (b) plans to replace his squat toilet with a sitting one. Well you would, wouldn't you?
