Nicki spent the day in Austenland this week. Lovely Australia has a day to celebrate all things Pemberley and she and her friend went all dressed up in their lovely Georgian gear.
I'm not sharing any of her private photos because I don't want her to cross the pond and hurt me, but where is this ode to literature in America?
Elle told me it was ComicCon for Austen nerds. Which is fine by me, and rendered Nicki non-plussed because we'd rather be Austen nerds than the alternative.
Oz is so much more committed to the arts than America. People who are surgeons by day may perform in the local theater at night. I think that makes them more well-rounded, and perhaps my English family went to the wrong shores. Or my Irish family. Somebody must have taken the wrong turn. How did I end up in Silicon Valley with the math nerds?
You will all be happy to know I'm making a big change that will enable me to get back to writing, and functioning as an arteest again. Granted, perhaps I will never be Austen, but I do have a little of her snark, and I am ready to get back to it! Okay, and just for fun...
