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?
I haven't used Shudder. I would like to.ReplyDelete
It's well worth it. There's plenty there.Delete
I haven't heard a Queen song I didn't like. :-) #freddieforever The boy investigated Shudder and loves it, so thanks for the rec. :-) Great post!ReplyDelete
I've always loved Queen :) Shudder is a great service, I'm on it all the time.Delete
History is such an interesting topic.ReplyDelete
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. :)

Fascinating, Tanith! Enjoyed your post.ReplyDelete
"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.htmlReplyDelete
Not yet. I've read all the Philippa Gregory books though.Delete
Ooooh I didn't think of horror films! I could lose a whole day or two to watching shudder haha. Love your post! See mine at :https://pineenshrinedreviews.wordpress.com/2020/09/09/wwbc-4-topics-i-never-get-tired-of-talking-about-are-quite-taboo/ReplyDelete
So could I!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
I have eight, and could talk about them all day.Delete
I’m a Ricardian too, since I read The Sunne in Splendour (Sharon Penman) would recommend if you like Phillipa Gregory!ReplyDelete
I'll look that one up.Delete
