Jane Austen -- Yardmaster

ABC Wednesday theme: Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a Life Change

Jane Austen, Action Doll, sighed.

"That Lydia," Jane mumbled. "She never puts the ladder away.  If only I could fire her and Wickham. They are horrible workers."

"Perhaps I could get myself transferred from this rail yard," Jane thought. "Hmmm, I wonder. . . ."

Jane Austen -- Not a Villain

ABC Wednesday theme: Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a Life Change

"Thank goodness! The world knows I am not a villain!" exclaimed Jane Austen, Live Action Doll. She stood on the courthouse steps, tired and verily relieved that this whole nightmare of incarceration was over.

"While in prison, I met women who chose to be villains. Career criminals, mind you. Some where in their past, they lost hope and faith in humanity." Jane shook her head. "They are very sad, miserable people. I cannot help but feel sorry for them. But, I do not excuse them for the horrible decisions they make to victimize others."

"If dear Tom Lefroy, had not been my lawyer, who knows what would have happened to me," said Jane. "Thank goodness, my undercover role has not been undermined. Onward and upward!"

Jane Austen -- Smokejumper

ABC Wednesday theme: Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a Life Change

"Helping fight wildfires is part of my duties as a park ranger," said Jane Austen, Action Doll. "Being trained as an aerobatic pilot, I thought I'd be able to handle being a smoke jumper. Hence, when an opportunity became available, I signed up."

"Fighting fires in the remote areas is very frightening. That's a good thing, I believe. At least for myself. It keeps me from doing disingenuous bravado things that could lead to injury or death of my teammates or myself."

Jane Austen -- Quantum Leaper

ABC Wednesday theme: Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a Life Change

"Now what!" exclaimed Jane Austen, Action Doll, looking at her reflection in the mirror.

It's February, 1967. It's the Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco. Arrmac, the future husband of Su-sieee! Mac,  takes one last look at himself in the bathroom mirror. He wants to make sure he looks good before he lines up with his high school marching band.

If all goes well, Quantum Leaper Jane as young Arrmac, the Trombonist, shall avoid colliding into the behind of a policeman's horse as the band marches along the parade route.

Note: Unfamiliar with the term Quantum Leap?  It was the late 1980s/early 1990s TV sci-fi show in which physicist Sam Beckett, played by Scott Bakula, is time traveling. He arrives at a place through someone else's body.

Jane Austen -- Oxymoron Phrase Analyst

ABC Wednesday theme: Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a Life Change

"Oh, my," said Jane Austen, Action Doll. "This job is definitely not for me."

"I like the idea of a silent scream in my rock garden, or taking a mud bath as I consider an impossible solution for a story. I love the image of a group falling into a 'deafening silence' after hearing the 'idle gossip.'"

Jane Austen -- Jellyfish Expert

My ABC Wednesday theme: Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a Life Change

"Are not these jellyfish simply darling?" asked Jane Austen, Action Doll, of her audience. Some nodded in agreement, while others looked doubtful.

"We only began calling these lovely things "jellyfish" in 1796, but they have been around for at least 500 million years.  Some of my colleagues believe that they are as old as the dinosaurs, possibly older. Imagine that," said Jane, the Jellyfish Expert.

Jane Austen -- Industrial Inspector


"Industrial inspector is merely another name for quality assurance inspector," says Jane Austen, Action Doll. "I shall not be one for long. All this climbing in long dresses is rather cumbersome. Not to say quite dangerous. However, this job is better than the alternative—an ichthyologist. Imagine me with icky fish. No thank you."

Jane Austen -- Hula Dancer

My ABC Wednesday theme: Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a Life Change
"As you know by now, I am not shy about trying different forms of dancing," said Jane Austen, Action Doll. "Exotic dancing was well and good, but after awhile I found no joy in it. Hula dancing of the Sandwich Islands is more to my liking. I do love wearing the fragrant flowers."
