This is Sparta Rubbish Day

So, I am still online gaming up a storm. I am now fully accepting of what this says about me. It says I am a giant, pasty nerd and I have no social life because I have two children and two jobs and 25 villages to run. That embarrassing admission out the way, I can now tell you that I am a Spartan. Yes, people. I am a Spartan.

I do not, however, leave small children out in the cold night to die or beat young boys to within an inch of their lives. (Both kids were home today – school holidays – and survived a Spartan strut in the street with me.) It does mean that I have a new clan in my war game. We mean business. In that spray-painted on abs kind of way.

Please note the unmolested small children ignoring their mad mother with as much determination as the rubbish guys.

But later this morning, the children are going to granny’s for the night. And as I said to my charming husband 23thorns, tonight, TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL!

Not really. We are going to the local Greek. Or should we perhaps go Turkish?

About tracyloveshistory

I have an inordinate fondness for a long time ago. I write about history and my family's place in it; clothes, shoes, war, memory, loss and whatever else takes my fancy. I wear red lipstick every second day and I dress up. A lot. Photograph by the extraordinary Ben Skinner at Arwen Garnentry.

  2. Hahhaahhaha. We’ve seen 300 probably 300 times. Love the shoes, and the shield, but you sooo need a proper sword!!

  3. Bwahahaha. I was addicted to a little collect-villages-the-empire-way until some super gamer waited until I’d amassed a small nation and sacked the lot of them. Meanie. Still, it cured me of my online gaming addiction one time!
