Wilde things

It occurred to me, after a recent conversation with a friend, that not everybody will necessarily appreciate the staggering wit behind my little tagline about “something sensational to read on the net”. Since it’s been on the site for a little over four years, I should perhaps explain it for those of you feeling left out.

The character Gwendolen in Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest pulls out her diary at one point in the play in order to check something, and comments:

So there you have it.

And now, a topic for dinner-party conversation:
Which fictional character’s blog would you most like to read?
