Just read Wild Women: Crusaders, Curmudgeons and Completely Corsetless Ladies in the Otherwise Virtuous Victorian Era, by Autumn Stephens. It's basically short biographies of 100+ women during the Victorian era who didn't really fit in with the Victorian ideal. Some famous. Some not so famous. The biographies are too short to make this any more than bubblegum reading, but the author helpfully provides a bibliography that has what appears to be one good book on each of her heroines.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
