Iwas going to pack my minivan full of people and drive to Oklahoma City to see this movie:
BUT, a miracle occurred, and we didn’t have to! It came to Wichita. So, I took a whole group of people out to lunch (at a Mexican restaurant, because that’s what you eat before seeing a silly movie set in England):
And then we
infiltrated stormed (seriously: we were basically the only ones in the theater. What is it with Wichitans???) went to the theater and had a grand old time! (Seriously: the movie was HILARIOUS, and had everyone — from the teenagers on up — guffawing. A LOT.)
I also bought these books:
Rose Under Fire, because ELIZABETH WEIN. I mean, how could I not??
Deadly Heat (which came out today) (remember my guilty pleasures from last year?)
Dream Thieves (which also came out today) because I had to own it. And because I sent my ARC along to some fellow YAckers so they could gush about it, too.
I call that a good way to celebrate 41 years on this planet.

What a great celebration. You should totally share this post with Shannon Hale.
I totally missed that Austenland was out on film – now I want to go see it! Was it good? But I think I'll go home and buy Dream Thieves from Audible tonight, because I loved the first book so much on audio.
Happy Birthday! I hope I have the chance to see Austinland some day…
Jen — thanks! Maybe I will…
alibrarymama — thanks! You SHOULD go see it. Seriously. It's brilliantly funny. And Dream Theives is amazing.
Charlotte — Thanks! I hope so, too…. 😀
I've been blog stalking you for quite some time but had no idea we knew any of the same people! Brenda is one of my very best friends, ever! What a small world 🙂
Amy- thanks for delurking to tell me that. Brenda's a wonderful person, and I'm so glad I've gotten to know her. It is a small world!
