My work on the Tree Gown has been neglected much of November because of something that came up. In late October a friend alerted me to a program being run by our local library system for the month of November commemorating the bicentennial Pride & Prejudice’s first publication. There were events scattered throughout the month (that I didn’t make it to), culminating in Regency Ball the evening of November 30th! There is also a dance workshop happening for it earlier the same day. I signed up for both! The Ball is being held at City Hall. The building dates from the 1840s, but I’m willing to let that slide ;o)
My birthday is at the end of September. The 29th, to be exact, which is apparently the same as Jerry Lee Lewis and Madeline Kahn. I don’t care too much about the former, but am a little tickled about the latter as Madeline Kahn is/was one of my favourite actresses.
Seriously, no one beats Madeline Kahn
