Oh, for all your bluster, i sincerely hope you wouldn't do away with Elizabeth I, one of the great monarchs of all time from any perspective.

Plus, the note sports a quote from a "Pride and Prejudice" character about how she loves to read -- except it's from the villainnette, who's only pretending to like books to try to lure Mr. Darcy away from Elizabeth.
This is a tragedy. Fitting, i suppose, that it's a tragedy, but a tragedy nonetheless. No wonder the Scots want independence.

Spoiler: notes
gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

Here's a link for general help info on finding amazon goodies through the astore.:

As the old woman said when she peed in the sea, "Every little bit helps."
