My mom loves to tell the story of how she was sitting in the lounge of the senior center with friends from her building and they were bitching about how their sons would come over, tell them they should get a part-time job, and then turn on the TV to watch football. Mom says "My son doesn't want me to work anymore so I can enjoy my retirement, and he comes over to watch Jane Austen movies with me. I win."

Quiet Starbucks conversation. Suddenly the big burly guy in the corner at his laptop bursts out with a loud belly laugh. This entry is why.

Thanks!

Give your mom a hug from me. She does, indeed, win.

Hooray for Jane Austen. Always saves the day and wins favor.

Here from [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes, and I have to say you have a total win situation there. So are there bunfights about who provides the nommies for the viewing sessions?

She usually hosts, so it's her call. I bring the Beefeaters and the blue-cheese-stuffed olives for the Martinis.
