When you're not stuck in gridlock, that is. Watch our time-swapping heroines Courtney and Jane, one from today's world and the other from Jane Austen's England, talk about the pros and cons of cars and carriages and the joys of not being in the carpool lane--in either century.

      In Jane Austen's time,what did one do for exercise and sports? Hunt? Walk? Even more important, what did everyone talk about without ESPN in the house. War? Proficiency in swordfighting?

    • Clothes Make the Many
      0.0
      "In Jane Austen's time, there was no such thing as casual Friday. No t-shirts, jeans, or--heaven forbid--bare arms. In fact, not only did a gentleman wear a real shirt, he always wore over it a coat with tails and a neckcloth, especially in the presence of a lady. Can you imagine what one of those ladies would think of men's casual looks today? ""Everyone looks like farmers and workmen,"" says Jane, our time-traveling heroine from 1813 England. As for Courtney, who has taken Jane's place in Regency England, she's loving the Mr. Darcy fashion vibe.

      Flattery will get you everywhere. Especially when it comes to the male ego. But do men really want to hear only praise?

      What would a lady from Jane Austen's time think of what we in the modern world politely refer to as a 'breast augmentation'? More important, what do we think about it? Have we lost our senses, or are we just lucky to be living in an age of medical miracles? Watch time-swapping heroines Courtney and Jane come to terms with the idea of an extreme makeover.

    • A Good Wedding
      A Good Wedding
      Episode 15
      0.0
      Is a good wedding synonymous with sumptuous food, a five-star venue, and 250 guests? Or is a good wedding a small affair in which the promise of lifelong commitment takes center stage? Is one overblown and the other one shabby? 21st-century Courtney and 19th-century Jane definitely do not agree. Ah. If only it were as simple today as it was in Jane Austen's time.moreless

      Episode 14
      0.0
      Is 35 the perfect age to get married? Or is a 35-year-old woman long past her sell-by date? To 19th-century Jane, who has awoken in Courtney's 21st-century life, a single woman in her 30's might as well throw in the tea towel. Bad news for 32-year-old Courtney, who has landed in Jane's life in 1813 England. It's one thing to read about such things in Jane Austen novels, but quite another to be living them. Except that aren't we already living them in our marriage-mad modern world?moreless

      "It's bad enough to be stranded in Regency England while another woman takes over your life. Even worse that she's wearing your wedding dress. The one you hid in the back of your closet. The one from the wedding that never took place. Watch our time-swapping heroines clash over what it means to be dressed in white. Ah. If only it were as simple today as it was in Jane Austen's time.moreless
    • Love, Money & Pemberley
      Is it for love or wealth that we pick our partners? Maybe it's best to have both. A dowry is highly desirable, unless of course you find Darcy and Pemberley House.
    • The 200 Year Old Virgin
      Imagine the shock you'd feel if you were a sheltered lady from 1813 England who woke up one morning in twenty-first-century Los Angeles. In another woman's body. A woman named Courtney Stone. Who is, like you, unmarried. But who is not, like you, a virgin. For Jane Mansfield, who is that lady from 1813 England, discovering that you are suddenly "a ruined woman" is far more shocking than fast-forwarding two hundred years into the future. Far more bewildering than landing in a world illuminated by electric lights, overrun by speeding horseless carriages, and stuffed full of too much information from a multiplicity of electronic devices undreamt of in Regency England. And even more unnerving than being a ruined woman is the fact that it isn't unusual. Not one bit.moreless

      Ever wonder how you could have missed the signs (let's face it; the billboards) that screamed "He's just not that into you"? Which of the following, for example, would be your first clue? a. He spends almost your whole first date on his cellphone. b. He doesn't pick up the check. c. He never changes his Facebook status to say he's in a relationship with you. d. He moves away and joins a regiment. Answer (d) may not be typical for the twenty-first-century, but it did happen to a friend of Jane's. In 1813 England.moreless

      "Wouldn't it be great if there were a foolproof decoder of male behavior, a dog-meter, if you will, that tells us if he's for real? Or, as Jane Mansfield, one of the heroines of SEX AND THE AUSTEN GIRL would put it, is there anything that indicates his intentions are honorable? ""If a man shows interest at, say, a ball,"" says Jane, ""if he asks for your hand--particularly if it's more than twice in a night--then he is indicating that he has developed certain feelings towards you. And one can be sure that his intentions are honorable."" Ah. If only it were as simple today as it was in Jane Austen's time.moreless
    • Regency Dream Date
      0.0
      "Courtney's twenty-first-century ideas of sealing the deal on date one (if there's chemistry, of course) don't exactly work in 1813 England, the world of Jane Austen, where Courtney has taken over Jane's very genteel and sedate life. As for Jane, a single virgin living under her parents' watchful eyes, the freewheeling, unchaperoned ways of twenty-first-century Los Angeles are a major shock.moreless

      Say you're a woman who knows what she wants. And sees no reason to wait for it. Especially when the clock is ticking. Like Courtney Stone. Avid reader of relationship self-help literature and master of what she calls her "system."
    • Concealer and Mascara
      0.0
      Who knew that a lady wasn't allowed to wear make-up in Regency Englad, unless she didn't mind being considered a 'Painted' Lady ... Jane praises the advantages of modern cosmetics, while Courtney enjoys being pempered by her Regency staff: "I feel so much more atractive here." Nothing however beats the pleasures of Concealer and Mascara, one thing they can both agree upon.moreless

      "Everyone stinks", reports Courtney from 1813. "When I fantasized about Mr. Darcy and Pride and Prejudice, I just never imagined all the smells." Jane, however, recently transplanted from 1813 England into Courtney's life in 2010 L.A., has another opinion: "I like men to smell natural." Would you be willing to give up your daily shower in exchange for an up-close-and-personal look (and sniff) at Mr. Darcy? Read more in the blog.moreless

      Jane finds women in 2010 Los Angeles way too thin: In her time thin implied poverty - who'd want to be mistaken for a poor girl, Regency or 2010!
