An immigrant you know and love who’s unafraid to step in, he’s constantly confusin’, confoundin’ the British henchmen…

Quick Q – what are you doing in August?  Oh, interesting, cancel it.  Because the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C. (yes, there is one) is going to have an exhibit called “Will and Jane: Shakespeare, Austen, and the Cult of Celebrity.”  I know this sounds made up, like someone just opened my head and pulled these things out of my fangirl brain, but it’s a real thing, and I think it sounds amazing.

Do I need to sweeten the pot to get you to fly to what is, in August, essentially a swamp, with 90 degree temperatures with 100% humidity?  Okay, here you go… the shirt (THE SHIRT) that Colin Firth wore to jump into the lake at Pemberley, thereby ruining me for the rest of my life, will be on display.  You’re welcome.  Get packing.
