okay, i can't help it.  i've tried to stifle my
curiosity, but i have to ask -- who is Queen Marie of
Romania?  and does she have any kind of clear
connection somehow to Dorothy Parker?

because, there's this song by the Flash Girls [a duo
of which Emma Bull is half, and Neil Gaiman tends to
write some lyrics for] called "Me & Dorothy Parker"
which includes the line ("She" refers to Dorothy
"She said, 'Life is a glorious cycle of song, A medley
of extemporanew; And love is a thing that can never go
wrong; And I am Marie of Roumania.'"
and the Marie of Roumania part confuses me every
