Monday's addiction

Jane Lizzie Lizzie&CharlotteIt is... the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, a very funny and completely contemporary adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that is familiar and new at the same time, and makes wonderfully innovative and interactive use of social media. You start watching the YouTube vlog episodes, and following the various characters' social media accounts and conversations (for example, this is Lizzie's Tumblr), and reading the behind-the-scenes insights and, before you know it, a whole hour has gone by and all the things you'd planned to do have been left undone and the most pressing discovery to your world is that KITTY IS A CAT.

My dear friend Brandi Bernoskie (also from Not Your Average Ordinary) introduced me to Lizzie's world last week, and I have been hooked ever since.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday. We have a public holiday here but I am working. Boo.

(ps. If you want to start from the beginning do it from here so you can get all the social media interactions between episodes, in order.)
