isn’t it glorious?

literally.

Follow the Honorable Phryne (fry-nee) Fisher through the back alleys, shady markets, and jazz clubs of late 1920s Melbourne. A glamorous lady detective in a mostly male world, she goes about her work with a pearl-handled pistol and dagger-sharp wit, leaving a trail of male admirers in her wake. Essie Davis (Girl with a Pearl Earring) stars in the stylish series based on the best-selling novels by Australian writer Kerry Greenwood.

curiously enough, this series is not just available in Australia and New Zealand (which is another country all together, despite what ill-informed people sometimes assume, darlings, and we feel the pain of NZ when they Do) but it is available in Wisconsin (yes, America – the United States of – not Latin – which has nothing to do with amo, amas, amat or Virgil it seems – gosh)

our friends-from-brisbane, whimsy and juno (we’ve not met – but we adore their frills and furnishings) have an appreciation of Miss Fisher here

Right.

that. does. it.

we’re going to see if Mr. Amazon has it (after we make a Request for Materials from our learned colleagues at the Los Angeles County Library System, naturally).

how exciting.

the other thing that was not just exciting but also a Bit Scary was that we had our Author Photograph shot yesterday.

now we cannot show you until the 19th or nearby that date because it’s in the Lab and needs Approvals and so on and so forth.

but we can show you how who-we-are-in-RL looks with false eyelashes.

and the New Bob! (we haven’t had a real bobbed-hair-look for many a year) – here’s one we took just the other day after the haircut in Koreatown (Los Angeles, we didn’t go all the way to Seoul, but Terry Kim, our lovely stylist, did come From Seoul).

when the lovely photographer asked us “what look are you going for?” (because they ask those sort of things in Photography Shoots) we took a deep breath and said (after we said “thin” and giggled prettily – *sighs*):

mysterious………….and as if we Know Of (deep) Matters.

voila!

and secretly we wanted to look like Miss Fisher, of course.
