    Someone ought to write it. It could be the new definitive Miss Manners-esque book.

    And Rachael, you don't look like a dork. If anything, I'M the dork for even thinking it up.

    Well, there is a ton of stuff LIKE that title out, already. For instance:

    Mental Hygiene: Classroom Films 1945-1970
    by Ken Smith

    Pink Think: Becoming a Woman in Many Uneasy Lessons
    by Lynn Peril
    (I LOVE THIS ONE ^)

    The Chap Manifesto: Revolutionary Etiquette for the Modern Gentleman
    by Gustav Temple, Vic Darkwood

    The Hatless Man: An Anthology of Odd and Forgotten Manners
    by Sarah Kortum, Ronald Searle (Illustrator), Ronald Seale (Illustrator

    Advice from the Attic: Perilous Pearls of Wisdom on Beauty, Charm and Etiquette
    by Monica Dale

    Now, granted, some of these are distinctly turn of the century, but some are specifically post-war. If you read Pink Think, you get to read how to nip communism in the bud (I'll give you a hint, it involves turning you little baby daughter into the world's perfect housewife, so she continue on to preserve the american family life).

    I love late fall, that's when all my favorite authors seem to have books out.

    I'm waiting for the new Laurell K. Hamilton (preferably from the Anita Blake series, but the Meredith series is okay too), crossing my fingers that Carol O'Connell will reappear with a book from the Mallory series, Joan Hess' new Maggody book, the new Patricia Cornwell (I don't want to read it, since she's gotten so horrible at writing, but I sort of have to, having read all the others)...um, I know there are some new ones just out I have yet to buy, from Linda Fairstein, Kathy Reichs and Alex Kava and there should be a new Sue Grafton coming out soon too.

    Happy fall!
    I didn't spend all that time playing Dungeons and Dragons and not learn a little something about courage.
