Interesting, interesting.

I also see that Sima Yi is not in the best of moods when sick.
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

Sima Yi is such a charmer....

Thanks plunged, that was intresting. I had expected a bigger biography but it was a nice read

First I've heard of that term of disparagement as "old freak", what is the literal translation for that I wonder? I too expected it to be a little longer, but I guess there's just not too much known about her which is somewhat surprising compared to other Late Wei ladies like Empress Guo, Zhong Hui's mother, and Xin Xianying.
