Girls' night

Last week Betsy invited a bunch of friends to the Cookie house to watch Pride and Prejudice. Some of them even watched the entire 300 minutes of the BBC's 1995 retelling of the classic Jane Austen novel.

The latest unwelcomed visitor to the Cookie house was one of the easiest to remove--I simply opened a window.
