I am so so so so so so excited! And I have a whole hour which must pass away before the lovely event can begin to take place. I'm going to a Jane Austen Christmas Ball!!! Oh, oh, oh, oh! At 2 or 2:30, we shall take ourselves to a friend's house to get ready, and then at 4, the ball! I don't know why I'm so excited… but I am!!! Perhaps because I just read Pride and Prejudice (fastest I've ever read it; only a week!). Or maybe because I started Persuasion, or perhaps because I am wearing a lovely dark red dress. Or maybe I'm just a hopeless romantic, as my mother says. And balls are romantic (and that is Anne-of-Green-Gables-romantic, not meet-kiss-get-married-romantic). For whatever reason, I am extremely bouncy and have way too much energy (and way too many butterflies in my stomach).
Fare thee well, sweet comrades!
Oh, and Happy New Year!

Spill your thoughts. Observe common courtesy. You'll make me happy.
