It’s been a while since I have done one of these, so please welcome the gentleman vampire back to my blog this week, Gentle Reader.
As always Lord Akeldama may not give you the answer you wish, he always gives the question the answer it deserves.
(If you asked him a question over the past few months and do not see the answer, it is always possible he has answered it before or it’s still in the hopper.)
If I were to give a vampire tea, what tea would be most appropriate and enjoyable for my guests?
Beautiful, young nubile individuals with those lovely blue veins very close to the surface. And bodybuilder athletic types. Those arms, you know my dearest morning glory?
Oh tea? No no no, water is much better. Perhaps some juice. Keep the hydration and blood sugar levels up. Tea is for friends, juice is for pets.
How high a heel can a man wear in daytime vs nighttime ?
Is this a trick question, snugglepuss?
How can one be fashionable while suffering from a terrible headache? The movies suggest this is possible so I thought you’d know if it was or a deceitful fiction.
Velvet couches, cooling cloths and those slippers with the feathers over the toe. Oh and those filmy kimono robes with more feathers on the sleeves.
I remind you, dearest petunia bud, that ladies of quality do not suffer they languish.
What IS the proper way to pronounce your name?
Ak – elle – dah – ma
Any advice for Ladies who are not in a relationship and want to meet new people (maybe their own Lord Macon) but are not ready for spending time and money on dating online, or having a false interest in sports.
There is no better social engagement than dancing. And you know, my dearest waltzing petal, a man who can dance has… rhythm.
You have experience raising a daughter. What advice do you have for a single father of twin girls about to enter their teen years?
Have a ready supply of chocolate and handkerchiefs on your person at all times. Be fair and firm and fashionable. If you do not want them to like it, like it yourself with vigor.
BTW please ask Lord A what are his favourite ladies’ designers? Also if he prefers Freddie Mercury or Adam Ant?
I have a soft spot for Worth, of course. And there is so much nostalgia for me wrapped up in the designs of Madame Vionnet. Pun intended, my grecian goddess.
Freddie Mercury of course, the name alone is superior.

I tried Kilogram’s Breakfast tea blend recently. A little too brisk for me, more like Irish breakfast, heavy on the Darjeeling or maybe Keemun. I tend to prefer a Assam and Ceylon blend.
