Anne of the Island, Anne with an ‘e’

Remember, when way back in January, I was noodling around with the idea of some Anne-inspired posts? Well, nine months later, this is the first post devoted entirely to Anne of Green Gables. She's made appearances in other posts, but this is the first one that's all Anne. I know, I know, this is supposedly a…

One Year

So. This blog, my little corner of the internet, has been around for a year. I know, it doesn't sound like much, but one year ago, while suffering from a particularly bad bout of insomnia, I started this little blog. And here's a confession: many, many of my posts have been written at some insanely…

A Most Excellent Essay

Hello, Gentle Reader, as the ever-quotable Miss Manners would say. This post is going to be really short--just a link, really. I am subscribed to the Jane Austen Centre's newsletter, and ever so regularly, a bunch of random, Jane Austen-related news pops into my inbox. Along with a bunch of advertisements for their gift shop,…

My Weekend

Hello dears! Happy Monday! I hope the transition to the new week was a pleasant one, and that you didn't realize, upon waking at 6:30, that the car was low on gas and you might need to take the 6:45 train to get to your 8:00 math class. Usually, I don't hop onto the "oh,…

Back to (Home) School

I don't know about you, but where I'm from, homeschoolers' summer vacation is a depressing thing.

I, for instance, have…

The Old Foreign Movie Post

Hmm. I may need to rethink that title. But it describes the subject of this post very well, and describes my current inability to think up good titles. At this point, you may be thinking: "What on Earth is Miss Eliza doing? Foreign Films? I thought this was a Jane Austen blog!" I apologize, dear…

The Four Fictional Characters Tag

So...I got tagged for the Four Fictional Characters Tag (thanks, Rae!) The Rules: Link back to the person who tagged you List four fictional characters (use pictures if you want! They can be from movies or books) and, if you like, describe what they're like and why you believe they relate to you Tag a…

Homeschooler, Part V

This is most likely the last post of my Homeschooling series. Yes, I'm sad, but I'm also excited to get back to the world of Jane Austen. I've had ideas stewing... In all fairness, I shouldn't act as if this were the end of everything, because it isn't. I will publish other Homeschooling posts, and…
