You might have noticed from my blog so far that my biggest interests are comics, sci-fi, movies and feminism. As my blog continues you will see that two of my greatest interests are Archaeology/Classics/Ancient History and Burlesque/Cabaret.
As a bit of background – In 2005 I took my Masters in Greek Archaeology and History, specialising in Prehistoric Greece, Crete and the Cyclades, and Classical Sparta. In 2010 I started performing as a burlesque performer and since 2011 have produced my own shows including co-producing an annual Festival in my home town.
Although I have eclectic tastes and interests I’m always pleased when they overlap. In fact it quite delights me! You will see coming soon on this blog such things as relating Classical Greek sculpture to modern gender thoughts, in which it would also be impossible not to mention the idea of Super Heroes! This is the kind of thing I mean.
The last couple of days the Hubster and I have been in London and yesterday took (possibly my millionth) trip to the British Museum. A place so full of things I love that I am in awe of the fact that every time I go there I see something new!! The something new I saw this time elicited an interesting reaction. Let me explain now that in my ramblings as a feminist and burlesque performer I have been known to be outspoken on body hair. My article entitled Bush Confidence on CoochieCrunch (a burlesque site for which I regularly write), is one of their enduringly popular posts.
That should hopefully put you in the picture to understand what I am about to tell you.
That yesterday at the British Museum, I rather loudly and excitedly proclaimed, on seeing this beautiful piece with her beautiful piece – “Cycladic MINGE!!!”. Sorry (not sorry).
