After completing the novel Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, I need to be excused. I shall indulge in watching Pride & Prejudice as my husband is off saving babies for the night.
Never fear, though. I am not a Jane Austen addict. I can exists for months on end without opening one of her six novels. I do not pine for Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.
I am also not a purist, as I enjoyed the darker, more Bronte-esque version starring Kiera Knightley. I am to blame for introducing my mother-in-law to the world of Austen. That was self-defense. I needed something besides sewing to discuss with her.
Should I be writing? Yes. Have I completed anything since the house was officially on the market and my sole focus has been to occupy the children outside (mosquitoes and all) so that the house remains in "ready to show" condition? Ten, maybe twelve, paragraphs.
I indulge in the land of Austen tonight. What about you? What movie, activity, or book is your indulgence when other things could be done?
