People, THIS is exactly what you want for Christmas. . .


. . . A Pride and Prejudice board game!! The idea of the game is very simple: you pick a P&P couple, then move them around the countryside, answering questions about regency life as well as the book Pride and Prejudice itself. The whole aim of the game is to get to the church so that you can be 'married'! What fun! I want one. . . though with the current exchange rate, it will cost a fortune for me to buy one and have it shipped from America. . . Guess I'd better start saving! :D

BTW - did any of you know that it was Jane Austen's birthday yesterday? It would have been her 233rd birthday. Happy Birthday Jane! :-)

Some of you may have already seen this. I thought it was absolutely hilarious - Jane Austen + Facebook = Austenbook = hysterical fun. Do have a look at it!

Finally -- I had a good laugh over some of these, which I found at Jesi's blog. I just couldn't resist sharing them with you all. . .

Why, thankyou Miss Jen! I think your profile picture is very lovely, too! :-)

I agree with you - one of the great blessings of blogging is the opportunity to meet likeminded young Christian ladies (and guys, of course!) with passions and interests similar to my own.
