Overheard in the office...

Me: "Last night I dreamed I had a motorcycle again... In Manderley."


The dialogue can go all literary geeky in no seconds flat here at Roseholme Cottage.

Vandalay Industries?

George's fake company for the unemployment fraud scheme?

I think she is referencing some castle where my family is from (Cornwall). My ancestors never had motorcycles (or castle). We had fishing boats though.

yeah, i know that tam is a new-world girl capable of myriad old-world flights of fancy gleaned from the awesome library 'tween her ears...

My sister and I demand "dork dollars" when either of us says something particularly nerdy. We're also trying to work out a scoring system for Scrabble that awards extra points for esoterica. (No luck so far.)

On the Moto' to Mandalay where the flying-fishes play and the sun comes up like a howitzer out of China 'cross the bay... Nevermore.

You want to watch out for that. One moment's lost concentration and you are up Frenchman's Creek without a paddle.
