I have a pair of down at the heels berks that I wear in the basement, though I wish the basement was clean enough that I didn't have to. Took a load of laundry down yesterday, returning left my berks at the head of the stairs, went to put stuff in dryer and... right berk was missing. Gone. Not there. Not anywhere near. Luckily I have a newer pair and luckily it was the right sandal that was missing, because the left one of my new pair doesn't stay on my foot. But I do wonder where it went to.

I'd watch Bridgerton and its not!regency perioding only because I've wanted black aristocrats ever since seeing Neverwhere and being pissed that the Marquis de Carabas wasn't a real marquis. Espeially since there's no reason he shouldn't be: London Under has its own aristocracy, Londinium was always a melting pot, nothing says its aristos must be lily-white. At least give us the Chevalier de Saint-Georges without nasty Napoleon getting in the way. But I gather it's a streaming service? and I don't stream, and the books are different, and have 1800 holds for 35 copies etc etc. Besides being too not!regency even for me, judging by a previewed first chapter of book 1. Pity. It's a nice idea.
