Don't hate the diet, hate the writer. It's easy!

Continuing with the sales enticements:

14k gold plate earrings and sterling silver earrings for those with nickel-sensitive ears.
Nightcap pattern samples for you to look at (Reconstructing History will have them) and pre-order.
A small number of hats (Eadric's booth).
Dress rosettes.

But enough of the sales pitch - As you may know (or might not - I don't remember the last time I mentioned it), I collect old diet books - the more outrageous, the better. I also collect old medical textbooks, pre-1920s, and they often mention diet too, especially if they're textbooks on "female" things.

No, I don't know why I collect them. They just fascinate me with their authoritative air and complete wrongness about everything.

Let's go on a journey of discovery!Collapse )
