Another bubble burst...

I've been reading a LOT lately, and much of it has centered on fiction set in England (or among English people) between about 1850 and 1920. I read the descriptions of the parties and such, and every once in awhile I think that it might have been fun to live back then.

Then I remember. I'm Irish. I would have been the parlormaid.

Crap.
