Boycott the state immediately! Madness... Wildly OT, but have you seen or read Austenland? It's a riot.

I bought the book, it looked like perfect beach reading... on the Lake Michigan shore.

(Take that, heathenish Michiganders!)



Film looks good too. I sense a JA binge night coming soon...
Just ordered them on Amazon! They must be wondering why there's such an increase in sales tonight

That should make it dead simple: wear a PETA t-shirt, vegan docs and book a table at Roots.

Difficult indeed.
Especially as she will want to vomit each time that you wish to be a little closer, when you've animal remains on your tongue.

Fish and chips (let's admit it)
Never been a huge fan of chips, but did share a plate of the best I've had for many a year this time last week, in a taverna right on the sand at Schinias Beach, Marathonas.

So what do Michiganders hate most?

Pride and Prejudice.


Also last week, I had cause to recite this quote you will be familiar with...

For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?

Flippin' heck, Curley. Because I didn't want to gum the thread up with reviews of a book written by and for Austen obsessives. Damned if you don't, damned if you do...

admit it, you got shares and want us all to buy the movie just to find out it is crap.
You could start a separate thread and just upload the movie on it. How about that?

I really couldn't care less whether you like it or not: I think it's highly entertaining and an affectionate take on the genre. Why make such an issue about such a light-hearted thing? Such a strange reaction to something you find bewilderingly trivial. How about you come and play with the rest of us rather than taking swipes from the sidelines, eh?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Wow, curley - what have you done.

I yawned through the flick when it came out and I quite liked all Austen's novels she published. Maybe this should have been through a pm, hahahahah...to curley. Flipping heck, people blow a fuse for nuttin'. FWP.

I ain't got a clue, MC. (I'd have one explanation but that would seriously put me in the bad books).
Yep, I'm all for PM's now

So back to first world problem: I got stuck on EF for too long this morning.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

FFS, Rufus, would you just stop writing posts.. stop making suggestions, asking for things, giving advice or having an opinion.

This is a forum after all, and not what we do..

I am not going to join in with the passive aggressive claptrap or the idiotic nit-picking, will just take you out and give you a good old thrashing instead..

Get a grip!

Why should I ? The comment I replied to was public and I'm betting it was in an attempt to belittle and squash. Badly done. I've said it before: passive aggressive bollocks will get you nowhere fast with me.

This isn't an Austen novel btw, it's by Hale. But you knew that of course... See? Passive aggressive. Not pleasant.

Enjoy your day, ladies. Sincerely. Get the hooks out, both literally and metaphorically. Crocheting/knitting is good for the soul.
