The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

Lady Bracknell has fallen in love

Lady Bracknell has long prided herself on the ability, proper to one of her elevated position in society, to so far subjugate her emotional responses as to appear positively frosty in polite company.

However.....


The editor (who is currently enjoying a fortnight's well-deserved break from her other paid employment) has been searching the farthest reaches of the interwebnet again, and has discovered Panda Cam. San Diego Zoo has a population of Giant Pandas. A population which includes a quite exceptionally endearing cub, born on August 2nd of this year. Panda Cam delivers a live video feed from the panda enclosure.

Evidently, there are other 'animal cams' set up in the enclosures which house polar bears, elephants and apes. Lady Bracknell cares not for these other cams. Her whole being is intent on watching every movement of the panda cub. At this rate, she may never leave Bracknell Towers again....

They'll eat you out of house and home if you decide to buy one off E-bay mind. I hope you've got lots of bamboo in.

Lady Bracknell does not want a real live panda of her very own. Well, she does, but she knows it would be cruel to the panda to confine it to the immediate environs of Bracknell Towers.

But she will continue to watch Baby Panda's progress with interest.

But if your Ladyship never leaves Bracknell Towers again, what am I to do for employment?

Dude

PS I am too old and crotchety to take up gardening, and I can't cook.

I fear this will not do good things to Lady Bracknell's time management, but I feel obliged to report that the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington D.C. has one too. This little boy is a month older than our lass in San Diego...

Oh dear. So now Lady Bracknell will have to drag herself away from two panda cubs in order to keep her rendezvous with the delightful Becca....
