Many many thanks! I’ve missed the history jokes and Napoleonic paintings floating through this sea of blue :)
[writes paper] this doesnt make any sense [prints it] [doesn’t proofread] [hands it in for a grade]
do you ever read too many napoleonic/regency era books in a row and feel like you’re caught in a georgette heyer typhoon
corinthians and rakes and young blades. faro and ratafia. old boney and old hookey. muslin dresses (potentially dampened). driving in hyde park and partying at vauxhall. a WALTZ??? how SCANDALOUS. gaming hells. ADCs being swag and cynical. collar points!!! and extravagantly-tied cravats!!!!! the duchess of richmond’s ball. WATERLOOOOO [strikes breast]. PRINCESS CHARLOTTTTE [strikes breast]. debasing yourself to lady jersey for vouchers to almack’s. white’s and brooks’s. HIGHWAYMEN. crossed letters and hiding a coin under the seal when you can’t cross your lines anymore and you feel bad. SHOE ROSES. debating the elgin marbles. defending mary wollstonecraft vociferously. somewhere in the background caro lamb is being ridiculous and outré and byron is lounging against a wall being snide about some widow he fucked in venice.

You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to.
Hit shuffle on your iPod, phone, iTunes, whatever it is you listen to music on and then write down the first 20 songs that come up. No skipping!
