eBook Recommendation: Bitch in a Bonnet

Standard

If you have ever read a Jane Austen novel, you need to go to Amazon and pick up Bitch In a Bonnet. It’s 99 cents and worth every single damn penny and more. You probably spent more than that for a soda to go with your lunch.

In it, the author shows us how misunderstood Jane Austen has become. She’s perceived as being a dewy-eyed, marriage minded romance author when truly, she was a brilliant satirist and social commentator.

If you don’t find yourself grinning and then laughing out loud while reading Bitch In a Bonnet, there is something wrong with you.

Here’s an except from the review of Pride and Prejudice. This is right after Darcy finds Elizabeth visiting Pemberly and has asked if he can bring his sister to meet her.

Lizzy naturally expects that Darcy will bring Georgiana to call the day after the girl returns to Pemberly; but in fact they show up the morning before that, which pretty much means Darcy must have allowed her about ninety seconds to drop her bags and splash some water on her face before hustling her off to Lambton. It’s as though he fears Lizzy might change her mind and hop a freight train out of town before he can get the two women together.

Birdemic

Check out the badass Christmas present Jess and Aaron gave me! We are watching this fabulously awful movie now and have been defending ourselves with the hangers and guns. The toilet paper? You need to watch the movie to know about that.

Go to Netflix. Watch Birdemic. Try to do it with snarky people if you can manage it.

Crossing Guard

Standard

The crossing guard at my intersection has been gone all week. There was a cop there today, wearing the crossing guard vest.

I wonder what happened to the crossing guard.

I wonder what the cop was thinking as he stood there, waiting for 8 AM and kids.

I wonder why I notice things like missing crossing guards.

Unexpected

Standard

I spent my evening in a completely unexpected manner.

While many aspects were quite shitty, I did enjoy the two and a half hours spent just chatting and teasing with my mom and my sister.
