My chatterbox is on strike, so here is Lydia’s complete Plotz:

“Pinched by her satin dance slippers and the life they represent, the firey and warm unjustly exiled Marquise Marie-Madeleine-Andalusie-Pompidou of Upper-Midwest-Southern-Cologne must come to terms with her new place in exile society, grieve the loss of her talented fink of a husband, and find out why there are kittens living in her writing desk. “

Pretty great, huh?
