  1. Brava!! Loved this — but I am sure I would have to “block” Mr E… (or is the new facebook term, “drop”?) 8)!!


  2. This is hilarious. I love the snide PS: “so delightfully concerned with my future conjugal happiness.” I can’t wait to see when his relationship status changes to “engaged.” Austen makes sure that Mr. Elton gets what he deserves. I just wrote a post comparing Emma’s interfering ways to a girl who doesn’t like her best friend’s fiance…told her to mind her own business, or she’ll do more harm than good. It’s amazing how relevant many of the Austen characters still are today….
