The Bronte Sisters Rocked!

Dear bloggie friends - we all know that in order to be published the Bronte Sisters (Charlotte, Emily and Anne) had to use male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell to be precise.

But did we also know that they doubled up as the Brontesaurus and er.. well kicked proverbial outdated Victorian attitudes' derriere?

We do now!


Charlie says: No need for violence. I take the zen approach. Any moment now and the door will open to many wondrous possibilities. Any. Moment. Now.

Have a world is your oyster Friday everyone!

Awww Charlie you look good in your chair.
The Brontes were talented and a little nutz. My kind of people!

Kea said...

"Pudding not included."

ROTLF!!!

That was absolutely priceless. Where on earth do you find these things????

Tell Charlie I've been trying his approach for my whole life and it's seldom worked. ;-)

Jacqueline said...

I hope your entry for the writing contest is coming along nicely Jenn...Charlie looks very regal waiting for the door to open to possibilities!...Happy Friday friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Hi, dear Jennifer. I just read through your last four posts. I missed them because the past four days have been traumatic and I haven't been into blogs, including my own. I just love everything you've posted. Those tea pots especially make me want to drink proper English tea!! And Charlie is always a charmer.

Any moment now the door WILL open.

Happy Friday to you!!

Brian said...

I did not know that! But I do know that Charlie is right, keep an eye on the door!!!

Theresa Milstein said...

I hate when action figures don't come with pudding!

That was too funny. It's a lot easier to be a writer now. Of course, I'm unagented and unpublished, but I don't think it's because I'm a woman. Probably.

Charlie is so patient.

I hope you both have a good weekend. I'll miss your posts (and Charlie's tail) this week!

OMG! I am dying! LOL! Who thinks of this sh1t!?! Love the lace on the brontesaurus...I've gotta watch this again.
The cats concur...you MAY be spending too much time on the web...

KarenMcG said...

Any.Moment.Now! is right. Great shot, Charley.

And thanks for your input today at Kittens 'n Things about the hot outdoors and our furry friends.

Here's to keeping them all cool and safe.

Take care.

Good philosophy, Charlie!

Charlie looks lovely today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Susan Fields said...

I didn't know that about the Bronte sisters - wow! :)

I like Charlie's zen approach, very cool, Charlie!

The Chair Speaks said...

Such a handsome profile, Charlie!

SF said...

Hello Old Kitty - I want one of those dolls!
However, I sadly suspect it was merely a send-up. How disappointing!

Hi Charlie & Jenn (funny how human names seem to go after the "furry ones"...)

Charlie !!! You are such a positive guy er.. meow I mean.

Happy Friday!
(Today is Buddha's day! Wesak, to be exact. Be blessed!!)

Love, Lucky & Bin

Happy Friday!

Marg said...

That was totally hysterical. I don't know how you find all this stuff. And Charlie is doing his job by sitting by the door. What a good boy and good job Charlie.
Hope you have a super Fri. and a good week end too.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Jayne said...

Aw I love Charlie!

The world is your oyster is a curious saying, isn't it? I like its meaning but don't actually like oysters... so for me it would be the world is your chocolate, which doesn't quite sound the same thing. Maybe the world is my moon stone? :)

Sammy and Andy said...

Hi, Charlie, we are very happy to meet you!!! Andy sent off your badge this morning and wanted to drop by and personally welcome you as a "Cow Kitty". We're looking forward to getting to know y'all better. :)

laughingwolf said...

Kat_RN said...

That was silly. Charlie is wise as well as handsome.
Have a great weekend.
Kat

Talli Roland said...

Dear Lord! Where on earth do you find these things, Old Kitty? I bow down to you and your amazing ability to find the cool and the quirky!

Milton said...

Muttie saw this video earlier and loved it! She even showed it to her 'usually unimpressed, cynical' English teacher partner and even he was impressed. It's a good one, non?

O.K.,
What a clever video! Actually, I wasn't that aware of that 3rd Bronte sister's work.

Love how the Brontesaurus had a nice lace collar & cuffs!

Tell Charlie he has a perfect profile. :)

Ginger Jasper said...

Hello, I came to say thanks for visiting me.. You are a lovely kitty and I will pop over again.. Hugs GJ xx

Guinevere said...

I love the Bronte action figure video! Brilliant. Thanks for sharing. :)

My cat also does the door stare. But at least then I have forwarning, as opposed to the times she lays low and then streaks through my feet!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This video was hysterical Old Kitty! I'm glad to catch up with you this afternoon.... I missed you and Charlie!
