I am...

...Anne Elliot?

In honor of The Complete Jane Austen on PBS' series "Masterpiece" (which starts tomorrow, by the way, and I am soooo excited about it) I took this quiz that I found on the Ravelry's Austentatious Fiber Artists Forum.

I am Anne Elliot!

Take the Quiz here!

As it happens, Persuasion is the first of Jane Austen's novels that will be broadcast in the series. I absolutely love the 1995 version of Persuasion starring Ciaran Hinds and Amanda Root, but that's not the one they will be broadcasting. I can't imagine anyone other than Ciaran Hinds as Wentworth, but I'm trying to keep an open mind. Hey, even a poor adaptation of a Jane Austen work is much better than an excellent adaptation of anyone else's work.

So tune in to your local PBS station on Sunday evenings, starting tomorrow, and revel in all things Austen!

Hmmm, if I am Anne Elliot, at least I get Captain Wentworth, right? Come on, Captain.....I'm waiting!

I started to watch it, and then a friend of mine called with a crisis and I missed the entire last half. Darn! But if it were P&P, NOTHING would take me away from Mr. Darcy!

I am Elinor Dashwood. I'm not sure I could live with Edward Farrars. I would be tempted to try to shake some spirit into him. Come on! Stand up and make a decision, Eddie-boy!

Why does this all sound vaguely familar???

Your sister, "D"
