We can’t believe we’ve never posted anything Austen-related before on this site… what were we thinking? After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that any woman with a heart must be in want of the Complete Jane Austen Collection. ($34) Watch these stunning BBC productions with your girlfriends and a large table of tea, cucumber sandwiches, scones with clotted cream & jam, tea cakes, and oh yes, a jumbo-sized box of Kleenex. In our experience, though, you won’t want straight men anywhere near the vicinity of the TV: when men come too close, they feel compelled to squeal “Oh, Mister Darcy!” and mock faint, in turn compelling us to kick the living shit out of them (daintily).
