Stuck in the pages....


Today at work i was all over the place.
I should be turning left, i turn right.
My arms should be up, they are down.

And why?

Because although i was there in body,
my mind was still immersed in the pages of the novel i'm reading.
I couldnt disconnect and bring myself back to the real world.

I was dreaming of Lord Orville
and hoping that Sir Willoughby will not come
between the future happiness of Evelina and Lord Orville.


If you like a good Jane Austen style book
i'm highly recommending Evelina by Fanny Burney.
and since it was written long before Austen came on the scene
i like to imagne that she read it and it became the inspiration for future Mr. Darcy's.

But gotta go....
only a few pages left....

So Exciting!
