"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

Holiday Mad Libs

My nephew got a little book of Mad Libs for Christmas. We spent Christmas evening as a family giving him all sorts of words. Being 7, it was interesting to see his spelling of some of the words that only my family would come up with. But before I give you the hilarious renditions, I wanted to give you all a chance to participate yourselves.

There were 3 that we loved. So just post your words for 1, 2, or all of them. I'll post your Mad Lib versions and mine after the deadline. Being the holidays, I'm sure you are all pretty busy with your own families. So I'll give you, um, three days. Hey, I'd give you more, but judging by poll participation, I'm not counting on too much from this either! :-) Besides, whether or not you participate, you're going to love what our family came up with!

Did you have family give you some words, 'cause I got a hint of your husband in a couple of these answers. :-) I had some great laughs from your results. Can't wait to share them!
