A New Addition to the Caledon Library

I am in receipt of an advanced copy of the newest edition of etiquette references for the Caledon Library. This particular selection will be housed in the Caledon Library Special Collections Branch in Tanglewood. I am sure this will come in handy for all those late night occasions, so please be sure to ask you nearest Reference Librarian to pull this one from the stacks for you.



Following is an excerpt from the contents page as was provided to me by the editor:

Colonel Somme's Caledon Compendium of Correct Behavior for All
Occasions: Chapter 14: What to Say to a Naked Duchess.
Section a: When Raving
1. In Caledon
2. Outside Caledon
Section b: When covered in mud
Section c: Aboard ship or in a dirigible


Happy researching Caledon!

I need to get a copy of this immediately! *grins* Looks like it will make for great (and entertaining reading)!

Chapter 14, section b: "Towel, Your Grace?"

I hope to contribute the O'Toole Appendix...

I am *so* pleased that all of our diligent efforts on the Caledon social sub genre "The Naughty Duchess Rave" have been so lovingly detailed here. I greatly appreciate the editing by Col. Somme, and recommend the following addition:

Chapter 14 - d: When engaging in Socratic dialog during the Duchess Sandwich
1.) At a Rez Day Party
2.) At all other parties

I believe the Rules for Socratic Dialogue are being covered in the Appendix by Colonel O'Toole.

I might also suggest another chapter:

Chapter 13 - How to Address a Nearly Naked Duchess
a - When in Her Corset and Stockings
1.) At a Ball-Turned-Rave
2.) In Her Boudoir
b - When in Her Caledon Panties and Bra
1.) At a Rave
2.) In a Sandwich
3.) Swimming in the Loch

Its a good thing I don't read this blog, or I should actually have to write this manual.

Her Grace, Eva Bellambi said...

Don't read my blog, eh, Colonel Somme? Now is that any way for one of Loch Avie's Own to respond?? Hrumph!

*smiling*

Actually, this was sent to me by our respected librarians, and I assumed that you were writing this chapter for us anyway. Hmmmm. And I was so looking forward to your thoughts on the matter.
