Rec of the Week:
I would like to recommend that people take a peek at [personal profile] the_comfortable_courtesan, a rather wonderful journal by [personal profile] oursin which purports to be a journal kept by a courtesan in the early nineteenth century. It is highly amusing and beautifully written and observed, as well as (so far!) being updated every day.
