"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

"Celebrated Passages are Quoted"

Heidi's favorite quotes


"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

Beware the Zombie Chickens!

Oh my goodness! This year has just been leaps and bounds in the Internet 2.0 world for me. Only last week I was writing my first guest blogger post. And this week I was given a blog award! (By someone I've never even met!)
The Zombie Chicken Award was given to me by StephanieD at Misfit Salon.
"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken-- excellence, grace, and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all."

Thus, I am proud to present this award to 5 blogging friends and their blogs which I thoroughly and greatly enjoy reading--even if I were under attack by said Zombie Chickens!

MBC at Slanted (which is on hiatus as she travels abroad, so you can see her abroad edition)
Mona at Mona's Musings (another on hiatus as she worked on greatness over the summer)
SaraLyn at The Brambler
and

Wonderful women, and wonderful blogs. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Wow! I made your zombie chicken list. Thanks! I'm very flattered as the others are much better writers than I am. And much more interesting. :) You just felt sorry for me, huh? :)

I did not feel sorry for you. I love you blog! I love how you always post positive things. I know how that can be hard for me personally. I also find them honest and interesting.

Heidi, I can honestly say I am surprised! I've never gotten a zombie chicken award before:) Although I do prefer chicken over beef any day...Thanks so much for thinking of me!!!

Wow!! My first blog award!! Thanks! As soon as some of this hospital craziness has calmed down, I'll blog about it.
Love you!

Thanks, Heidi, for saying my blogs are honest and always positive. That means a lot. I once read a person's comment on someone's negative blog thanking her for being honest as opposed to all those others who tried to hide the truth behind fluff blah, blah, blah.... And you're so nice to find them interesting. What a great friend you are!!!
