...it'd slipped my mind to write about my wonderful experience on Sunday, meeting (again) with the Jane Austen Society of North America--Massachusetts.

The last time I'd attended a JASNA-Mass event, Margaret D and I were freshmen! Unfortunately, we got caught up in college life and never made it to another event. This all changed when I moved back. Having been successful in making JASNA a part of my life in LA, I knew I could do it here. So when I got an invite to celebrate The Good Lady's birthday on Sunday, I RSVPed promptly.

The celebration was lovely; they had readings of Jane Austen's letters from five different years, all around her birthday, and a lovely toast given by "Mrs. Bennet". We had champagne and birthday cake, and...

...THEY REMEMBERED ME AND MARGARET!! :D :D

I was given a hero's welcome, and taken back with enthusiastic hugs. :D It's been 9 years!!! Isn't that crazy?! I love Jane Austen readers. :D I'm back in the circle, and set up securely in the steering committee, which should be a wonderful fun non-science thing for me to do.

Anyhow...despite the rain, I woke up cheerful and energetic. I had an interesting result last night in lab, and I'm 90% done with my subgroup presentation.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JANE AUSTEN! (And [livejournal.com profile] rford!! Heh, I'll always remember your birthday)

And happy belated birthday, [livejournal.com profile] adventurat!!!
