This blog has been... well... quiet of late. Period drama reviews are scarcer than scarce things. Posts about literary characters... say what? We don't even remember those. Whoever writes this blog has been flying in and out like a tornado in a trailer park. "Hi toys! Bye toys!" (Apparently she's been watching too many Pixar movies.)
So where's Miss Dashwood these days if she's not here?
She's catching up on emails and phone calls with friends.
She's reading Pride and Prejudice out loud to her second-youngest sister.
She's teaching an American history class every week (and has had it up to here with the Stamp Act. Do not mention the Stamp Act to her at this time.).
She's babysitting a squirming bundle of adorableness every week for six hours at a time.
She's finishing her senior year of high school.
She's writing fiction in her spare time.
She's reveling in the delights of Our Mutual Friend with her sister the Anne-girl.
She's studying for her driver's permit.
She's helping her friend Melody run the P&P95Forever Club.
She's working on a bunch of blog posts in draft. Heh. Well, sometimes.
She's sewing like mad. Well, when she has time. Which isn't that often. But she does it whenever she can. Because she's finally launched her own business. She's on Etsy--not with much, as yet, but there nonetheless. Here.
Is she a has-been around here?
Absolutely not. North and South will be reviewed on here. Very soon. As will Ivanhoe and Our Mutual Friend and all four seasons of Jeeves and Wooster. And Les Mis (the brick). And she'll be spouting off presently about why Jo March and Laurie Laurence should not have gotten married, and why the ending of Little Women is just as it should be.
For now, though, she's just popping in to tell you she isn't dead. To thank you for being patient, for sticking with her, for leaving comments and being the lovely followers and friends that you are. (And for putting up with her pointless use of the third person in this post). And to direct you to this post by a friend of hers, a post which she is absolutely on-her-honor NOT copy-catting right here and now. No. Never. Don't even imagine it.
