7 a guide to strumpets of yore

If that happens, my new goal in life is to be The Girl Who Was Also There.

well yeah. i mean, there are pictures.

also, this is a book about prostitution and white slavery. is it maybe wrongish that its chapter titles (again, excepting 13) read like my ideal life?

and i SO want ermine.

Um, yeah, you left out that important bit of context, there.

At the very least, I thought perhaps it was a bad romance anthology, you know, like a forerunner of Harlequin or something.

but you have killed. The couch, remember?

oline said...

YES.

dear pirate, please write my biography. so the cover copy will read: "OLINE EATON: STRUMPET OF TODAY, the exciting latest by dOugO pirate riggs, author of EVIL MAN SMELLS BABY STABS SNOWMAN."

i bet sensei would arrange a panel to discuss the unexpectedness of that.
