HAMLET: Never make known what you have seen tonight. HORATIO & MARCELLUS: My lord, we will not. HAMLET: Nay, but swear't. HORATIO: In faith, my lord, not I. MARCELLUS: Nor I, my lord, in faith. HAMLET: Upon my sword. HORATIO: We have sworn, my lord, already. HAMLET: Indeed, upon my sword, indeed. GHOST: Swear. HAMLET: Ah ha, boy, sayst thou so? Art thou there, truepenny?-- Come on. You hear this fellow in the cellarage. Consent to swear.
Born somewhere on the Venice-Simplon leg of the Orient Express, Truepenny has been pursuing her life's calling ever since, rendering porpentines fretful and poking moles with spoons. When not traipsing through the puckerbrush in search of wildlife to perturb, Ms. Truepenny collects ghosts in books, stories in publication, wordcounts, and Lioness jewelry. She is married, for those of you entertaining filthy thoughts, and Quite Respectable besides, so quit it.

Insofar as I have a policy about my "Friends" list--for which I much prefer the term Reading List--it's here. I keep my Reading List parsimoniously small because that's the only way I can manage LJ without having it eat my life.
