broken

I broke a bone in my right hand!

This is a nuisance, although it already feels better. i have to go to the hand dr this afternoon. i hope he will not make it feel worse.

i also had several cavities filled this morning.

it’s been some week. apparently mercury is in retrograde.

thank god georgette heyer was so prolific. i read Venetia last night — it’s the best one yet. here is why —

  • i really love venetia. she knows what she thinks and what she wants. i love that she’s so matter of fact. she gets who people are — like Audrey, who’s selfish but forthright, or Conway, who’s just selfish, or, of course, Dameral.
  • it was kind of a relief to have a somewhat tarnished hero for a change.
  • I particularly liked that Venetia solved the whole thing, overruling the butt-inskis.
  • i liked the message that even tarnished people were redeemable — that it was ok to live in a way that society found bad, and that there was more than one perfectly fine way to live. Also, that for people slightly smarter than the average bear, you might find yourself on the outside. That venetia did not have to live exactly by the rules.

  1. This is sorry news. Are you typing left handed? Foul weather here. Not summer at all. May have to find some Georgette Heyers. I’ve never read her.
