Enchantedly mine

Today we ripped off a blogger named Riona from the blog I Run Seattle. She states she got it from “the even-cooler-than-I-thought” Trish. 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. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

1. What's for breakfast?
Fried mackerel with white radish and red tomato garnish, steamed rice, toast with chicken spread, banana and DXN's Lingzhi coffee

2. Do you read a newspaper daily? 

3. What do you do when you can't sleep?
Lament the plight of uncited authors whose words are prominently used as shout outs on FB. How meticulous a job copying and pasting could be?

4. Say a word that sums up your mood.
Fae. (Hemlock Goblinglitter skewers Tinker Bell) 

5. Do you remember your dreams?
Just one or two. The rest haze out before I'm awake.

6. Name something from your dream last night. 
Gossamer wings. Flitter flutter Mary Cicely Barker.

7. Name a food that describes you.
Dragon fruit. A multitude of dots as multitudinous as zits and reasons to celebrate life. Relatively nocturnal too.

8. Today you are wearing:
A malong

9. What's in your pockets?
A malong has no pockets

10. Did you sing in the shower today?
I sang in the faces of my boys. Son begged me to stop. Poodle howled in great annoyance.

The Cranford theme song

12. Looking forward to the holidays?

13. Where do you want to be this instant?
Glenshee, Glen of the Fairies!

14. What's for lunch?
I'll get to that when I get to that

15. What's something you would like to do soon?
Drink tea and publish a coffee book

16. Reading anything now? What is it?
Northanger Abbey. Decrepit castles, a cricket-favoring tomboy far from nursing a dormouse or watering the rosebush, mysterious chests, a mother who did not die giving birth. Jane Austen grills Udolpho. Now I'm gonna google Ann Radcliffe.

17. What's for dinner?
Samok oi! (The fridge is full. Go help yourself)

18. A favorite part of the day is:
When I'm full and reading what I want to read

19. Are you happy?
I'm enchanted. Therefore I must be.

More or less 50

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.

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…
