Looks like I’ll be taking at least part of Jay’s advice: I put furniture up for sale on Craigslist last night, in order to lighten the load, and try to ship everything else UPS. So I have to get to work on this right away. Of course, there’ll still be some Curiosities links at the bottom of this post. But filling in for me today is the late Leo Tolstoy.
Thanks, Steve. It’s a great honor to be posting for you here today on Biddle’s World. So here’s a very condensed version of my classic novel Anna Karenina:
Everything was in confusion in the Oblonskys’ house. The wife had discovered that the husband was carrying on an intrigue with a French girl, who had been a governess in their family, and she had announced to her husband that she could not go on living in the same house with him. This position of affairs had now lasted three days, and not only the husband and wife themselves, but all the members of their family and household, were painfully conscious of it. Every person in the house felt that there was no sense in their living together, and that the stray people brought together by chance in any inn had more in common with one another than they, the members of the family and household of the Oblonskys. The wife did not leave her own room, the husband had not been at home for three days. The children ran wild all over the house; the English governess quarreled with the housekeeper, and wrote to a friend asking her to look out for a new situation for her; the man-cook had walked off the day before just at dinner-time; the kitchen-maid and the coachman had given warning.
Then everybody got run over by a truck.
