Episode Thirty-seven: Unfair! Protest!

Today, Chapters 15, 16 AND 17!

Today I have some fun silkworm links, some pretty pics of the Pysanky eggs by Jen (who is very, very, very prolific while listening), some pics of intersting historical spindles, and some lip from Julie!

Tee hee!

Julie absolutely rightfully called me on the carpet for my anti-governess bias, so here's my rec. Go listen to the last episode, last chapter, with a different ear (that would be at roughly 47 minutes into episode 36). Then keep listening to today's chapters. Yeah...Julie has a point. I'll also let you in on some things Ol' Henry himself had to say about the book.

I may also share some of ELOISE in Paris (okay, NEXT week...) and remind you that really, truly, I loathe being a single Mom.

¿Donde esta mi esposo?

And some helpful info from Jen:
pysanky (piz·ahnk·yeh) is the name of those Ukrainian/polish eggs. singular = pysanka
Kiska (pl = K is the name of the stylus thingie.

She also says:
if you like Weird Al, you might be interested in The Apologetix. they are a
Christian parody group that does Christian remakes of pop songs just like
Weird Al.

Oh! And don't forget to visit Ms Stitchy McYarnPants!

Found! Philosophy Podcasts! This is the one I spoke of. This one may even be a little better.


  1. Yeeks! I just listened to the latest episode and can I just mention that I was down in the big, empty, dark basement doing laundry? It was all I could do to refrain from scuttling up the stairs; I kept picturing Miss Jessel stepping through the door and STARING at me.

    I have no interesting or witty commentary on the story; I'm too busy trying to stay in well-lit places.


  2. HA!
    I had the same problem RECORDING this week's episode! EEK!

    p.s. maybe we should start listening to this all together in a big, well-lit room.


and then you said...
