Recommended for: Onto Wanda
Read in January, 2010

** spoiler alert ** When Uppityhood was in Flower: 470-1650, or so.

Poring over the PMS-like accounts of the time, historians often marvel at the hair-trigger medieval temper, the violent behaviour, and the physical abuse of those days. And the men were evn worse!

Little sketches of some seriously interesting historical personagellas. This fun book had me going off to research nearly every one more fully, so in itself it's great but by extension, a great learning curve and side-splitter.

Misfit I'm wondering what EC and Susan H. would make of this book.


Bettie☯ Hello there Misfit - Funnily enough, I was thinking that you would really love the European bits in here. One of the perks for me is that it covers chick's behaviour around the globe...oh! those Mayan Maids.

Hayes Don't know how I could possibly resist this one!

Love the dancing marmot (or whatever it is!)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Looks like the gopher from Caddyshack.

Great movie.
