Jane Austen booksA couple of weeks ago my friend and I went to check out the Brooklyn Book Fair and guess what we saw? Yes, it was JASNA! Who? No Not Jasna the person! Wait, there’s a real person named Jasna? Wow that’s cool.  I think I’m going to name my first child or cat which ever comes first that ☺ But no, I meant JASNA as in The Jane Austen Society of North America!? Yes, hello!? Ah I cannot describe our happiness when we saw those fine ladies telling us all about the membership. We listened rather carefully until she mentioned the specific dues and then we got a little distracted. Ahhh Imagine the delight and shock had Mr. Darcy appeared from behind that table! We would certainly have fainted with joy ☺  But of course, the only thing we can afford at this point is the free sign up for the email list!  To show our love we quickly signed up as a potential JASNA member. I must say I signed that list in my not so very best writing, however the lovely lady in charge of the list told me that I had really nice hand writing.  Well, I did get an award in 5th grade for best writing you know.  Speaking of which, I just want to do a shout out to Mrs. Pace, my 5th grade teacher who taught us how to refine our cursive in fountain pen! You knew you were all grown up when you could write beautifully in ink. Mrs. Pace, I will never forget your pearl necklace, your black Cadillac and your thousands of cats.  I was a little scared of you but I’m not sure why, you sound really cool and I think you were a very special teacher indeed!

On another note, I’m currently reading “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” It’s a fun read so far. I love Austen and I love Zombies so it’s all quite awesome.

My tea for the moment:  I think Earl Grey either from Bigelow or Twining would be the perfect choice for such an occasion! Please raise your cup for JASNA! and oh yes Zombies!
