When I grow up, I want to be Michael Wood, Bill Bryson, or Stewie Griffin. When in doubt, quote or paraphrase Gore Vidal.
Interests: Exploring history through books and documentaries, especially ancient, medieval, ecclesiastical, British, and military history. I also enjoy mythopoeia and British television comedies and crime dramas. I like a bit of politics but maybe less so the older I get. Some elements of design, too, intrigue me, including heraldry, vexillology, and graphic design in general, especially typography and labels for beer, wine, and spirits. I'd oddly keen on cats but I like dogs, too. When I grow up, I want to be Melvyn Bragg or Bill Bryson (a fellow Hawkeye Anglophile). I use too many commas.
