The Lady tries very hard to be a lady. She often finds it very difficult to succeed in this respect, her excuse often being that she grew up on a farm for the first 19 years of her life before moving downtown to pursue convenient transportation. She lives with the Gentleman and the Feline on the Pacific coast of Canada. She loves shows like Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire and wishes she could own their extensive wardrobe of dresses and hats.
Although she was raised on a fully functioning farm, the Lady was exposed at an early age to the performing and visual arts, literature, and to weekly Sunday drives that usually ended with an ice cream cone. The Lady’s parents always supported her love of the arts and didn’t try to stop her when she got involved in community theatre, and for a short time threatened to pursue stage and production management as a career. She decided against it however, and is now pursuing a substantially less glamorous career in history.
How things used to be done is much of the driving force behind the Lady’s contribution to a project like Peas and Queues. So much been forgotten over time in favour of new manufacturing processes and an emphasis on leisurely pursuits that include sitting in front of a screen for extended periods of time. The Lady’s “back-to-(modern)-basics” approach encourages simplicity, healthfulness and respect for all she interacts with without sacrificing good taste, and good manners.
