Millennial pink. I’m interested by the fact this topic has had more than one article written about it, but I’m confused about how most of the examples here are distinctly different shades of pink, which seems to undercut the entire thesis. Or maybe I care too much about colors. Which is far more likely.
"Ridiculous numbers of men, it seems, still didn't know how to type throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, or at least performed a kind of deliberate secretarial incompetence when it came to the basic mechanics of writing and transcription.” How many male authors’ wives typed their manuscripts.
One thing I’ll never turn down is a good historical mystery series. Or a bad historical mystery series, for that matter. It’s my favorite light reading habit. If you have similar tastes, might I point you in the direction of the Captain Lacey Regency mysteries series. Look past the covers of ladies in ball gowns and superimposed fancy script. These are some highly entertaining novels with well-formed characters, centered around the type of man that might result if you took Philip Marlowe and smashed him through the Napoleonic Wars into Regency England. Their digital editions are also inexpensive (and the first one is free on most platforms), so load up your ereader of choice and go for it.
That’s all for today. Thank you for reading.
Hold tight. We're headed out. Don't worry, you're coming with.
