Right, well, busy couple of days, but not especially interesting unless the tidyness of the second bedroom interests you...

Yesterday was quondam's party. Read her friends list for more information. I stayed sober and was in a bit of a funny mood - probably the warm weather...

Today was Homebase, a gentle run up and down some hills, Troy and Curry.

Troy was quite amusing in its own way. It taught me a number of things I missed from the Iliad (spoliers - as if you care about the story):
  • Cousin is a euphemism for fuckbuddy

  • Before togas there were crop-tops and kilts

  • There were no nice people in ancient times, just a population of anti-heroes

  • Orlando Bloom does better than I've seen him before, but is a long way off being a credible actor

  • If you want your name to be remembered then either hop around a lot driving weapons into peoples' shoulders, or have a big club and have cleaning products named after you

  • Agamemnon didn't infact star in the Orestia, he was stabbed by A WOMAN during the fall of Troy

  • Ithica is somewhere near Sheffield

Final verdict - amusing, diverting, and entirely different to the Sword & Sandals epics of the last generation - where good was good (and hated gun control) and bad was bad (and normally Roman).
