Jane Austen

Yay!

I’m going to see a play.

A real theatrical production called “Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley.”

Can you tell I’m excited?

It’s the “sequel” to “Pride and Prejudice” and is set in Victorian England.

Guess who I’m going with. . .

No, not Barbara or Michelle.

Or Tejas.

I’m going with my mom.

That’s right!

Because we both are Jane Austen fans and there’s nobody I want to see it more with than her.

Of course, knowing me as well as she does, my mom just had to ask –

“ARE YOU DRESSING UP?”

Ha!

She knows me TOO well.

Of course I would love to (and I scoped out Natasha’s Attic for costume ideas), but walking around downtown San Jose at night in Victorian clothing is not something I’m eager to experience.

So we’ll skip the costume.

But I will wear a nice dress!

Of course, no trip to downtown would be complete without a visit to Café Stritch and their live jazz music.

Woo hoo!

I’m seeing Jane Austen reimagined with my mom!

What could be better?
