Anti-Depressants

The writing on here has been a bit erratic recently, as I'm travelling. Great excuse.
...
I was in the kitchen [where every woman ought to be], doing dishes [a woman's primary purpose in life], when my Mum walked in. There was mischief brewing, I could tell.
"I want you to take some medicine while I'm away." She said.
"When you're feeling blue and missing us, you need to take some medicine that I'll give you, okay?"
I realised [with some alarm] that she must be about to give me a package of anti-depressants, or some such medicine.
Instead, she placed a Toblerone...
and a box of Turkish Delight, on the kitchen bench.

..because she knew I LOVE Turkish Delight. I would have asked for it if I'd been Edmund. Thankfully, the box mum gave me looks extremely non-magical; although eating it will undoubtedly heighten my craving for TD, it shouldn't give me the kind of addiction Ed suffered from.
In other words, I won't need to betray my brothers to get more.
My eyes lit up. Love you Mum!

- Lydie

Oh dear. Lydie. You haven't posted anything. Most dreadfully sad. Although I can understand why, what with traveling an Turkish Delight.


The poster for Mansfield Park says that it is a comedy... That can't be right, can it? From your post, I think you agree with me. Unless it is vastly different from what I remember it.

Ellie: I've been pretty bad with my 100 days. There'll be a post tonight though! I don't know why the poster said it MP was a comedy. Mansfield Park's anything but a comedy, although of course it's sprinkled with Austen's inevitable wit. Even the movie isn't exactly funny.

No, but I haven't seen that particular movie. Talking about Jane Austen movies, have you seen the new Emma with Romola Garai?
