The Landrification of the Gentry, News

I've just had a call from the solicitrix to inform me that I am now officially settled. "Settlement" is a solicitrixial term used to describe the sudden egress of monies from one's bank account into the bank account of the person from whom one is buying one's second-storey one-bedroom baronetcy; it does not describe the state of one's tum as one contemplates the heft of golden ducats one now owes to one's usurer at 8.75% per banannum.

Have had no luck coming up with names for my new joint. "Harlot's Rest" just doesn't have the right ring to it.

Congratulations!

And my first thought would be the suitably baronial Harlot Hall.

(Dull of mind at present because of the evil that is Nurofen in liquid capsule form, an evil I had avoided thus far).

Congratulations, oh landed one! Oh escaper of rental uncertainty. I see Senor Mortgage has been good to you.

I hope you find much comfort in the newly appointed Lexicon Lodge. Any chance of getting that Bile Beans sign on its side?

Harlot's Half-Half-Half-Half Acre?

Harlot's Pile, because it gives you permission not to vacuum. Unless you like that sort of thing, of course.

Casa Lexiconia

How about "Teddy"?

It's not punny, but it's a nice name. I think. I'm fond of "Dondaree" too.

Baronet's Bawd and lodging.

Now that it's settled, on with the wall papering unless you've spent the money again on useless items like food.

Resounding guffaws! (If I could bring myself to type "lol", I would; unfortunately, however, I cannot type "lol".)

Well, home sweet Harlot! Mazel Tov.
