Just when you were getting all excited about Lord Byron’s return to the fray, I suddenly remembered there was someone we hadn’t seen for a while. So here she is. Lord B next time. Or perhaps the time after that. I’m just trying to keep you on your toes, you know.

However, all of this pales into insignificance besides the news that Mrs Darcy has received an endorsement from the stern academics of the Graham School of General Studies at the University of Chicago! How cool is that? Her bonnet is all a-flutter, I can tell you.

In other news (yes, there’s more), it seems that I am on the longlist for the excellent 50 Stories for Pakistan project. There are 54 on the list, which means that the four who get dropped are going to look awfully lonely. *crosses fingers and everything else*
