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

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

any attempt to turn it into a python loveathon

AIBU to shave the slavegirl so we can eat our feast off her without fear of those annoying wiries getting stuck in our teeth?

Whats the funniest thing you've ever overheard at the Forum?

Handholding please! DS wants to go off and invade Britain but he's my PFB sad

I've found a shopping tablet!!

Keema - that would have to be Quis custodiet ipos custodes?. Not that funny in itself you'd think but one of the inbred lunatic that's currently running the place Tiberius' henchmen heard him and hauled him off to the Circus. DH was there and said it was a brilliant show, five types of wild animal and the disgraced senator with a single spear - we Romans really are the best in the Ancient World when it comes to putting on and inventive show. envy grin

MyndAndMist Sun 26-Aug-12 22:53:23

AIBU to take a night off for the Bacchanalia and leave DH at home with the kids?

Oh gods, my typing has gone to pot. That should have been a 'too' in the Satyricon post and an 'an' in the last one. blush blush

Can I blame the unwatered wine from my first post? [hopeful]

Is an amphora of wine a night too much?

I need to fit out dh with some new tunics. Which weavers are best? Any discount codes?

Can anybody suggest a family chariot that will accomodate three cradles across the back?

saggy Wouldn't go to Gaul, the sky might fall on your head, by Toutatis.

AIBU for not letting my DS use these new public toilets? He can't go with all those people watching and they keep borrowing his sponge on a stick.

Also, my DH keeps going to Egypt on 'business' but I think he's got some bint there pregnant. What should I do? Apparently she has a very nice nose.

Discipuli, pictoram spectate.

Also, is anyone else sick of all the Graffiti in Pompeii? It's disgusting, who will think of the children?

Still, on the plus side I won Heliogabalus' lottery the other day. On the down side, the prize was a dead dog.

MadBusLady Sun 26-Aug-12 23:01:27

AIBU to park my sedan in a Vestal Virgins only parking space?

localcrackpot Sun 26-Aug-12 23:04:53

There has to be more to life than spinning wool, right?

I quite fancy nipping down to watch the wrestling, but DH says it's no place for a woman... Seem to be plenty of women loitering outside though?

Cara filia me mordet. Nonne irrationalis fuissim clamare eaque excitare?

MadBusLady Sun 26-Aug-12 23:05:51

This old matron TUTTED at me in the macellum today when I gave DS a stuffed lark to eat while I did the shopping! I was going to keep the beak and pay for it at the end!

Lilymaid Sun 26-Aug-12 23:07:38

Property - we are thinking of moving to Pompei? DH has an offer of a good job in an inn there. Are the schools good? Any drawbacks or reasons why property should be so reasonable in the Bay of Napoli?

Northernlurkerisonholiday Sun 26-Aug-12 23:08:49

Dh wants me to dress like a slave girl. Would this be a dealbreaker for you?

CrispyCod Sun 26-Aug-12 23:09:44

Another lion has escaped the Coliseum again........

Sunnytimescoming Sun 26-Aug-12 23:09:55

feed that Essex lion some Christians

Sunnytimescoming Sun 26-Aug-12 23:10:21

xpost Crispy!

AIBU to be pissed off about this?

My DH Augustus and I decided to throw an orgy for DD's birthday last week. We sent out 40 or so handmaidens bearing invite scrolls - only about 5 citizens bothered to reply and on the day only one old man, a eunuch and a donkey actually turned up.

We'd hired a triclinium especially - plus some gladiators for entertaining the guests between 'courses'. The whole affair cost us a fair few denarii and the gladiators are refusing to leave the peristylium until they get paid.

Next year I just won't bother - we'll probably just take DD down to the Colosseum to watch a few Christians getting dispatched.

AIBU to think this is rude behaviour?

Wearing my judgey Toga but I saw a woman hand her child a Greggs Dormouse Roll and a FruitFlagon at the forum today!
