Wimsey rec

azdak observed the following line in Sayers’ Unnatural Death, in which Lord Peter Wimsey prevails upon Charles Parker to stay for dinner by telling him,

"Bunter does a wonderful bloody steak and there are new peas and potatoes and genuine English grass. Gerald sent it up from Denver specially. You can't buy it."

Some discussion about etymology and the relative merits of white and green asparagus later, she has written Wimsey and I. Go on, you know you want to.

On another note entirely, it seems that my vestigal German is even more vestigal than I thought.
