For those who somehow missed it, I trotted up north to appear on the Sword & laser video cast recently. It was a blast. Even if you aren't interested in seeing me prattle on, I highly recommend scrubbing through to the end to see the white board cartoon on the subjected of the Parasol Protectorate series. It is adorable!
I have a blog about the outfit over on Retro Rack.

Quote of the Day:
"A parasol boasts more virtues than the eminently practical one of shading the eyes from the impertinent rays of the sun. It gives an air of smartness to the summer girl."
~ Parasol quote from a 1909 newspaper
