Yeah - I surf way too much to only limit it to listing 13...

...and Nair does work... just don't leave it on too long cuz it'll burn you.. I had a friend in high school that left it on too long and burned herself a nice thick scab mustache.. it was horrible...

I go to Yahoo every day too. And I love Jane Austin novels, so I will have to check those out. Great TT. Happy Thursday!

MommyBa said...

I always find it great for people to be acknowledging the websites they frequently visit :)

Happy Thursday dear!

MamaLee said...

I surf a lot as well. And I frequent many that you do!

Happy TT!

I have to go read Michelle Malkin and Drudge every day too.

I love Jane Austen too!

Did you know that you can view some British versions of her novels (other writers too) on YouTube?

Do a search for the particular titles. Many people have created music videos with scenes from various movies, however, notice the clips that say part 1, part2, etc. I watched "Persuasion" a couple weeks ago in 10 minute installments. It was really good.

Thanks for the comment.
I'm a true down to earth Southern Belle tea drinker. Like my Lipton tea strong. I also drink green tea, English gray tea. As you can tell I love my tea. (lol)

I just started blogging a couple weeks ago, and I sure noticed an increase in the amount of time on the computer. I could spend more time but limit myself. I didn't have for things before, now it is worse. Good list for showing your true interests. I like Jane Austin also, but must say I haven't been doing a lot of reading.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy TT.

KTC sounds like a cool website. I do not knit but I know several folks who do, and two of them happen to be librarians. I will pass along the site.

I love Pride & Prejudice. I own the BBC mini-series and can't tell you how many times I've watched.

I scrolled down and saw there was a contest between Colin Firth and that other guy (hee hee) for the best Mr. Darcy. I'm glad to see Colin Firth won. I don't think I could have slept knowing that other guy won. LOL

Thanks for the visit!

Hello there! I just read your comment over on my TT :-)

Actually, I wasn't aware there was a Jane Austen blog; I'll have to go check it out now. Knit the Classics is an interesting idea, too.

As far as what I read, I think I'll save that for the next TT; it's quite a list!

Lady Jane, thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my TT! It's been a while since I've heard from you.

Some of your daily stops are mine as well. I'm going to check out "Popsugar"...during the "Lost" TV season, I usually check out the USA Today Pop Candy Blog when people comment about the most recent Lost episodes.

Lady Jane said...

Thank you all for visiting and leaving such great comments!

Misa Gracie, I am glad to know about Nair (but I will probably burn myself!).

MommyBa and MamaLee, I didn't really know what I wanted to do today for TT and almost forgot to do it, but then thought of the websites I frequent! There are more, of course. :)

Jam, those are great sites and I constantly recheck them for new things!

I adore Jane Austen and am always on the look-out for another JA site/blog.

I have seen some of the great JA videos on YouTube, but didn't know Persuasion was on there (it is my second favorite JA novel)!

Earl Grey is my absolute favorite, but I love all sorts of teas (though English teas in particular).

Knit the Classics is a lot of fun. Right now we are reading Jane Austen's Mansfield Park and next is a Bronte novel (by Anne). It is a lot of fun. I am glad you will pass it on, Chelsea!

Veronica, I was not surprised that Colin Firth won, but I do wish Matthew had! I think he was a great Mr. Darcy.

Cindy, nice to see you again! Have fun at Popsugar. It is a guilty indulgence! :)

Thank you all for visiting! Such great comments! I enjoyed reading them all and visiting your blogs! Thank you!

Some really good websites there that I'll have to go and have a look at.

Thanks for stopping by my TT yesterday.

I have a hard time making it to all the blogs I'd like to on a regular basis... I have a daily list and a second list that's more like, "when I get around to it".... I wish I could visit all of them every day.
