Can you find me some sandals to go with this toga?

AIBU to think that my slaves don't need a day off?

Who is your favourite person in the Forum?

What else?

Book club topic: The Satyricon? A set of good dinner party ideas or bit 'try to hard'?

Dh and I want our first Winter festival as a married couple alone. AIBU not invite my DMother and DMiL, especially as they are the same person?

I have just been to see a villa that is a do-er upper. DH seems to think that we can live as it is, but I hate the mosaics in the grand hall and the lead pipe work needs replacing? Should I sell a couple of slaves and do the work first or live in it a while to see if the mosaics grow on me?

Is it me or do the Praetorian Guards get younger......

They are building an aqueduct next to my villa and some bloke called Offa is asking the council to construct a 'dyke'. Should D'us H'us complain or AIBU?

Dear MNHQ, have you thought of upgrading your slates to wax tablets? They smash less often and will enable techius to concentrate on other things.

So, DH and I were in the vomitarium the other day.....
