So, Amy and I were chatting on Facebook this evening. I'm in the purple, she's in the green. It is altered just a tad because it was not written for the purpose of being shown to you guys. ;) (I'm leaving "yezzzz" in there though, because that's just What I Do.) And I'm also not hiding the fact that we're just a little bit awful sometimes. A little bit.
Harper Lee died. :(
She wrote To Kill a Mockingbird, in case you forgot that.
No, I knew that. :P
I'm actually pretty good with author names attached to books they wrote.
That's why it was "in case" and not "fyi" :P
The first several times I heard of Harper Lee, I thought she was a dude.
It was easier to get published in those days if people thought you were a dude.
Sad but true.
(It's her middle name.)
Which is why I think Jane Austen was AWESOME.
She just said "a Lady".
Like, that is all you need to know.
I wuv her.
I wish to remain anonymous, but I DON'T need to pretend I am a man, Thank You Very Much.
No one could have believed that a man would have written as well as she did anyway. :P
Except there were some stupid people that thought the opposite. They argued that a woman could not possibly have written it.
(Men did, of course. Say that.
The women were probably like, BOO YEAH, A LADY.)
I like her brother though. He probably heard these people and were like UM YES IT WAS A LADY, IT'S MY SISTER, AND SHE IS WAY SMARTER THAN YOU OBVIOUSLY*
OH LOOK, PEOPLE READ HER BOOKS
DO YOU EVEN HAVE ANY BOOKS PUBLISHED
I DON'T THINK SO
SO SHUT YOUR STUPID FACE
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW TO READ
I THOUGHT NOT
GO BACK TO WALLOWING IN THE PIGSTY
WITH THE PIGS
I want to write a fanfic scene. :P
And blog it.
Maybe I will.
Or we can just copy this whole conversation and I can put it on my blog.
I will capitalize everything for you.
...PLEASE CAN I PUT IT ON MY BLOG
PLEASE IT'S HILARIOUS
*The main reason Jane Austen started becoming known, despite being anonymous, was because of the Proud Brother about whom I am speaking here, who just couldn't keep it to himself. ;)
