Today is Miss Jane Austen's 236th birthday celebration. To celebrate, I wanted to share a link with you. Several "Austen-esque" authors collaborated to write a story of how all Miss Austen's heroes, and a couple of the "villains," got together to discuss what to get their esteemed author for her birthday.

I found it laugh out loud funny, but perhaps you need to be familiar with all of Miss Austen's works (and maybe a few of the "sequels") to really appreciate it.
Happy Birthday Jane. Thank you for giving us your wonderful stories, and your wit and wisdom. I have spent many a happy hour lost in your written world.
Then there is the matter of your movie adaptations. Thank you for this:
I think I will celebrate by watching one of these movies this afternoon instead of doing something productive.
