I've just been crossing the sea in a 12th century ship with a cabin and a window. How cool is that to be so ahead of the technology! Now I am sitting in bed getting very worried that my three times a night husband might be forming too close an attachment to one of his male ministers.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Oh, that's pretty. What time (and book) are you in?

I'm still in Russia too. It's about 1809 now.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
