Saturday 9: Hot Fun in the Summertime


1. Is summer your favorite season? Why? ~ yes, it is when I forget work and have so much fun with people outside work

2. Do you exercise more in the summer because you wear less clothing?
~ I eat and sleep more in the summer with all the parties I go to. My form of exercise is walking with all the sightseeing I do

3. Do you enjoy tanning or are you more concerned about the dangers of basking in the sun? ~ more concerned about dangers of basking in the sun

4. You are on the beach when a waiter appears for your drink order. What do you ask for? ~ an ice-cold fruit
punch

5. Do you camp in the summertime? ~ I used to. Once I was about to camp with other tourists in a national park, but the crown prince was spending the night there too, and we were asked to 'behave.' Great place, not so great timing.

6. What was your favorite summer vacation as a kid? ~ being a farm princess every summer to a grandfather who spoiled me rotten; gave me a pinkish, pregnant buffalo for a pet

7. Do you enjoy sleeping outdoors? ~ when it's with people I like, yes

8. Do you throw a summer barbecue every year? ~ not every year, but when I'm home it's 'eat all you can' for family and friends

9. Have you ever been to a nude beach? If yes, what did you think? ~ no; but if I ever get to one, I'm sure I will learn something

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
