Remember the Cosmopolitan Lady’s Book in The Masque of the Black Tulip, where Henrietta, Charlotte and Penelope read up on Ten Tricks to a Flirtier Fan?

Look what my friend Chantelle just sent me:

Yes, it’s 18th Century Cosmo! You know Henrietta would so have a subscription….

    Oh my! “Slender ankles”, what I wouldn’t do for some of those~ Seriously! A girl has to start somewhere.

    That’s just fantastic! Bet Hen is jealous that you get to keep it and she doesn’t!

    Wow! This is ingenious! Chantelle is brilliant! I can so see Hen reading this!

    Since Jane’s comment got spammed out, I’m reposting it for her:

    “Oh, I want to read the articles! In fact, it would be even more fun to write some of the articles. Hm. Is there any way to make this happen, perhaps as a virtual magazine?”

    Great idea, no?

    Oooh yes, that would be such fun!!!!

    You’re right Lauren, it was a pity that the comment got spammed out. Do you think maybe your spam filter is jealous that we have so much fun and decided to crash the party? 🙂

    Heh, could there be a section titled “Heard on the balcony…”?
