And say yes it's Jane Austen about about is quite Nolte. I'm Texas if he knows he laments that he would he can use of navigating her way through society and that quite militant way. Well she is in the funny thing is that Jane Austen route this when she was twenty via. And it wasn't published until after she died this thing now so what was it was there some kind of a not of course that you would there discussing this net. I like to feel that I was like I I spit I mean in in my intense the way I think because. Heated time pay for women was extremely constraining intensive that was not komen for the tipped to have an edge higher education it said he wasn't. Come into have a full fitting commander of that stuff and on to oversee Jane Austen being. A brilliant mind but in women I'm sure experience but do the frustration in times of the kind of premise is that she had to put sensation.

They use does tools not say Jesus on it height. She's been like kind of justice came in munitions. If he's if it picnic a perfect. I mean she's it's it's disputes that she's on some speed dial and cheese but to meaning what you're doing in the playing of our. Is making sure nobody gets the last word yes that you're going to make sure that this woman is going to and get what she wants. And yet she has a daughter to right. And since she wants to in that world decide what she should do it this way. Yet and I think she's not the kind of warm Fuzzy estimates hand me to let them.

She definitely was to secure had to have his fugitive and and even thinks it what can snuff because she asked me to. You know has time. This is also reunion of sorts review and Coley said right because he did last days of Disco as this illness it was and is with this rebounds to what was it did you most of it is that wasn't just warm they would send food into stance because I you know I think when we when we show. Nothing's disk and it is very much different here the timing. Nicki had a self amid an intimacy you taken it was fine and they need it to an incident but I think we need to know. Paris eyes of being in England. Canoes and Neil I had a baby sentiment surprisingly that or the stuff was going on think it wasn't you detecting heat and you know that. To there was this cut that by running to carry a few times management agency have that we have found themselves and it. How many seventeen and eighteen use place.
