"For a moment she wanted to hit him.  the blood was roaring through her ears: she felt herself quivering like a bell.  She'd supposed that he'd gone up to bed ages ago.  He must have been out here for --well, close on half an hour."

From the book The Paying Guest, Sarah Waters

Oh neat, Dear Irene. I've done enough damage on my own blog today so I'll post my Friday 56 here:

"Then, in 1798, less than six years after her wedding, Lady Williams was in an accident on the Isle of Wight, the scene of her whirlwind romance. She was driving her chaise when a runaway dray horse ran into it. She was thrown from the carriage and killed."

From 101 Things You Didn't Know About Jane Austen

Spring is nice to me. It is wonderful weather. I like it very much. I like it and I like it very much. The End.

I agree with the young child who wrote that. I'm tired of winter already, and it hasn't even officially begin. Sigh...
