  1. F*ck me, you girls can be funny sometime!

    You are right, that sh*t just doesn’t add up.

    I was cracking up so hard over this post, my wife in the next room (who is constantly giving me sh*t for my love affair with this blog. She just doesn’t get what it is like to love period costume) heard me, and asked what was up. I replied that I was “Just busy being amused over a French-ish Ikea add with apples, poncy men, and more than a few unfortunate bigginses”, and she didn’t know what to think.

    As for ‘why is the woman asleep in bed?’ ASLEEP? Are you mad, she was being serviced by the footman, [or possibly the kitchenmaid, couldn’t tell] and what time are you supposed to do that then? Hmmm?
    Keep ’em coming missus, I need more of this.
