"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Anything You Can Do, I Can Do (Better?)

I'm such a "me, too" girl, it's pathetic.

The marvellous, talented, witty Adam Felber, son of the esteemed Edith, brother of frolicsome Susie, has posted a "lewd exhibition...of a post-pubescent female breast." In deliberate, one might even say flagrant violation of Internet anti-porn legislation.

Oooh, I used the "P" word. And now I can just hear my blog's hit-meter soaring!

In the course of my current scholarly and historical investigations, I've come across a pair of post-pubescent female breasts--not on the same female--that are worthy of display. In the interest of free speech and all that, I thought I'd share.




In bygone days, the attire and demeanor of the female portrait sitter were a none-too-subtle indication of her virtue, or lack thereof. As one might conclude from the looseness of their garments, these ladies had loose morals to match. The beauty in gold satin is a noblewoman of Charles II's court, notorious for her affairs. The dark-haired lady, an actress, became the mistress of Charles' cousin, a European prince.

I'm feeling terribly naughty. If the Feds come after me for this, I swear it's all Adam's fault.
