From yesterday's defamation suit transcriptions: the witness "found the said Richard Davies and Anne Lloyd in Davies house verie suspiciouslie together and heard the said Davies saie to the said Anne, let me see thy cunt and thou shall see my pillocke." Who knew? I suppose I could OED every risque word I can think of to discover it's origin once and for, but where's the spirit in that? I much prefer to learn via research, as I did a few years ago, that "fuckt" was used as early as 1615. These are important discoveries, you know?
[Perhaps most amusing of all: to find this juicy tidbit this morning, I opened my transcriptions document and did a "Find" for the word "cunt." I never figured I'd be doing that
in this project!]
And yet for all of that
awesomeness? Still really, really
want to be reading rahirah
offering from yesterday and angearia
's piece posted bright and early this morning. Go, now, friends! It's back to the film for me, so I have to put off fic reading for a bit, but at least I have something to look forward to when I'm done reading about early moderns who ought to have their mouths washed out with soap! ;)
