Medieval Dances - The Egg Dance
The Egg dance was one of the earliest Saxon Medieval dances and, like the Carole, was performed during a period of festivity namely the Easter-tide festivities. The  egg dance was derived from a traditional Easter game, in the egg dance eggs were laid on the ground or floor and the goal was to dance among them damaging as few eggs as possible.

My new favorite thing.

Drinks are not consent. Flirting is not consent. Relationship status is not consent. Time of night is not consent. Previous sexual acts are not consent. Consent to A is not consent to B, C, D, E… Consent now is not consent later. A coerced yes is not consent. Previous partners is not consent. A lack of a “no” is not consent. An inebriated yes is not consent. In short: only (fully concious) consent is consent. And what is that? A passionate yes, every step of the way!

Clear?

Batman Returns…
His books to the library!
Happy Friday from your friends at the CPL!

I wonder if his alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, sits on his local library board..

I like rare books and I cannot lie
All you other patrons can’t deny
When a girl walks in with an Elzevir Press and a provenance request you get

I like em big
And bound
In vellum or leather brown

I wonder if anyone ever looks at me while I’m doing something and thinks I’m pretty. Because I do that all the time to people.
