The Ellie Bellie Meme

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as Ellen White from the blog Ellie Bellie Blog. She states that she has been "dragged into this new cult of memeing". She does not explain what blogger "dragged her". But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing.

Cheers to all us thieves!

Happy Birthday, Zel! May you have many more birthdays to come. Bantug wala ka play ug OWM. The babysit thing - dili sila makasabut ana? ok pa diay freedom diha no. China pa ka..dugay na ka dili ka blog. Mao dili na accessible all freehosted blogs nowadays because people write what they observe. They even read your emails if you are on the list. :D

Anyway, i played Sun stealing on tusday. better late than never eh.

the wedding abobot photos are now posted too in my Joys in life blog.

See ya around. :)
Hazel said…
Arlene, of course they understand babysit. but who is "sila" and what "on the list" are you talking about? it sounds like fire and brimstone condemnation, lol! i don't care about not being able to blog in china. that's why i'm not there :D

"people write what they observe" that's common knowledge and the hell they do. and our freedom in Thailand? rest assured we take care of it very well, although i'm sure there are loads about it that you don't know so it's safe and better for you or anyone to steer clear of it particularly if we're not talking about expert opinion or whatever that would impress authorities :D

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.
