Topics I never get tired of talking about

 So what topics do I never get tired of talking about? This was an interesting one, because frankly I'm not much of a talker in public, so it's not always easy to get me onto a topic I'll open up on.

The first is probably tattoos.

My friends are fairly evenly split on tattoos - I have eight of them, all easily covered, and half my friends disapprove while the others think they're great. Personally, I find tattoos addictive. As soon as we're fully out of lockdown I have at least three more planned. They'll all be fairly small, though - I have a back piece which took four and a half hours and I refuse to do that again.

The second - Richard III and Henry VIII.


I am a closet Ricardian and have also always been fascinated by Henry VIII. I recently read a book about the possibility of Henry having a Kell positive blood type, which would explain his own illnesses and his inability to father living children - a great theory, even though we'll never be able to test it.

Then we have my favourite music.


I love rock, particularly The Darkness and Queen. I'm deeply missing being able to see live music at the moment, but then aren't we all? These two bands in particular have a great way of filling the stage and exciting the crowd, which may sound obvious but the extremely dull Motley Crue gig I once went to would suggest it isn't.

And last of all - horror films.

I subscribe to the streaming service Shudder which is full of great horror films and, needless to say, has been very helpful during lockdown. If you like horror at all I strongly recommend it. Just having the three "Hell House LLC" films has made it worth the subscription in my book.

So what do you never get tired of talking about?

  3. History is such an interesting topic.

    I've heard good things about Shudder. I haven't been as interested in horror since this pandemic began, but I want to check that service out once things calm down here in the real world. :)

  5. "A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse!" Have you watched the White Queen, White Princess and Spanish Princess yet? A marvelous retelling of the War of the Roses. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2020/09/wc-090920.html

  7. I love history! And I love talking about tattoos! I don't have any tattoos, but my aunt has (at last count) 33! I think. She's got a lot. I love how each tattoo has a story or a meaning.

  8. I’m a Ricardian too, since I read The Sunne in Splendour (Sharon Penman) would recommend if you like Phillipa Gregory!
