Embarrassing admission #857

From this week's Entertainment Weekly TV section:

Sunday 3.30 9-10:30 PM PBS
Sense and Sensibility

Sad-but-true fact about me: There's a street in Los Angeles called Willoughby Ave. and whenever I drive down it, I say "Oh, Willoughby!" loudly in an English accent.


Ahem. Jennifer Armstrong at Entertainment Weekly, you are not alone, sister.

I'm a tad saner... I say it in my own head, and then vow to NEVER settle for Colonel Brandon. Join us for Jane Austen Porn Club night anytime!




Which Jane Austen Character Are You?




You're Mariane Dashwood from Sense & Sensibility! You are the romantic youngster, also found in Jane Austen's work as Catherine of Northanger Abbey and possibly Georgiana Darcy of Pride and Prejudice. You wander through life like Red Riding Hood in the forest, picking wildflowers and humming a happy song... and you can't see the wolf right in front of you! Ruled by heart and not by head, you are best advised to to learn a little caution, before you are forced into a better acquaintance with the ways of the world.
Take this quiz!

LOL I always say "Willoughby!" there too!

I've never said it aloud; but I do think it almost every time. And for a year I lived off of Willoughby Street! So imagine my distress.

Most of my friends are testing as Eliza Bennetts (me too).
