Bertie the Beau Wants to Know

Greetings, O Riskers and Regents!

The estimable authoress Cara King has agreed to let me post in her place today; and she made the offer out of the generous goodness of her heart, and not because she is at the moment rather busy picking up the one-thousand and five hundred pieces of the jig saw puzzle which somehow all landed on the floor.

I, you see, have some more questions about life in this century:

1) Why do you call postage stamps “stamps” when no one ever stamps them?

2) If a CD contains secret music hidden in its depths, what does an AB hold? Or an EF?

3) Why do so many women nowadays admire Mr. Daniel Craig? The man is quite ugly. Indeed, he looks like a prize-fighter. Pray tell, gentle ladies — what is the attraction he holds for so many of you?

4) Why do people find penguins cute, but turkeys comical?

5) If restaurants really wish to impress their patrons, why do they not replace their “oven-baked chicken” with a “frying-pan baked chicken”? Now that would be a dish worth talking about.

6) Am I white and nerdy? (I saw Mr. Yankovic’s musical audio-video production yesterday, and I have been pondering this question ever since. What exactly does “nerdy” mean, anyway?)

If anyone can answer any of these questions, I would be ever so grateful.

As ever, I remain,

Bertram St. James, Exquisite….at your service

About Elena Greene

Elena Greene grew up reading anything she could lay her hands on, including her mother's Georgette Heyer novels. She also enjoyed writing but decided to pursue a more practical career in software engineering. Fate intervened when she was sent on a three year international assignment to England, where she was inspired to start writing romances set in the Regency. Her books have won the National Readers' Choice Award, the Desert Rose Golden Quill and the Colorado Romance Writers' Award of Excellence. Her Super Regency, LADY DEARING'S MASQUERADE, won RT Book Club's award for Best Regency Romance of 2005 and made the Kindle Top 100 list in 2011. When not writing, Elena enjoys swimming, cooking, meditation, playing the piano, volunteer work and craft projects. She lives in upstate New York with her two daughters and more yarn, wire and beads than she would like to admit.
