Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.
Oh, that Mr. Crosbie is a douchebag. He needs a comeuppance in the worst sort of way.
Also, Trollope uses this expression:
“Psha, mamma; pray don’t go on in that Goody Twoshoes sort of way.”
I had no idea that the expression "Goody Twoshoes" was as old as all that.
And, he named one of his characters "Major Fiasco," which made me laugh out loud.
