Conversation chez Cacciaguida: dark v. nice

ELINOR: I saw a Jane Austen site where there was a poll going on: Bingley vs. Darcy. Can you imagine?

CACCIAGUIDA: Heh. Like that would be a hard choice.

ELINOR: I know. Who wouldn't want to spend an hour with Bingley?





CACCIAGUIDA: So, which dialect of Martian did they speak back in your village near the polar ice cap?
