oaths and imprecations

Bluestocking oaths are colourful but not unladylike.  The bluestocking tends to utter such imprecations as "Cripes!", "Jiminy!", "Bobbins" and frequently to use colourful Shakespearian language (probably due to a misspent youth in the theatre).

Of course the more dashing set among the bluestockings simply let rip like navvies, or like Father Jack (Feck! Arse! Girls!  I love my brick! and so on.)
