What Football Team Do I Support?

Apparently, if you like to watch football (soccer, to you Transatlantic people), you have 'a team.' A club you'll support no matter what. A club you buy merch for, cheer when they win crucial games, and cry when they get relegated. So, what team do I support? Well, I support Portsmouth. I spent a year… Continue reading What Football Team Do I Support?

I Made Medieval Pottage!*

*Okay, so, not really. It contains potato, which was only brought to Britain in the 1580s. But pottage was still being eaten by that point, so I'm sure somebody made something similar, at some point? I did it because I wanted to cheat. See, traditional pottage (so-called because it was cooked in a pot) was… Continue reading I Made Medieval Pottage!*

To officially acquire one, you have to have one presented to you… Continue reading Make Yourself a Coat of Arms

I recently discovered that 'sex positivity' exists. When I googled it, it was like a light turned on in my head,… Continue reading Sex Positivity (Possibly Sensitive)

Our Alphabet Sucks, We Need A New One

This post is meant to be taken in jest! The English language is a mess, isn't it? It's all mixed up, made up of words from all different languages. Sometimes the same letters in the same order don't make the same sound, to the despair of second-language learners. The Americans knew it was a mess… Continue reading Our Alphabet Sucks, We Need A New One
