Listen, give Kim & Kris some credit … their marriage did last longer than the reign of the Lady Jane Grey, who sat on the throne for little over a week in the summer of 1553. #thingsthatDIDNOTlastlongerthanKimsmarriage
So ur prim minster and yur doin sum shit wen the phone rigns. U anser it n the vioce is “wut r u doing wit defcits?” U tell ur girl n she say “Clement Attlee is ded” …
It is evident that Henry VI’s delicate constitution, along with his protracted struggles with mental illness, made him ill-suited for the drawn-out & turbulant dynastic struggles that occured during his life & reign … Indeed, armed controversies fought over differing views on horticulture often demand the finest, bravest, & most calculated minds of an epoch.
Meet the newly-crowned Miss USA, Alyssa Campanella of the great state of California (I was just there), who is a “huge history buff/geek”. How big?
"I watch Game of Thrones. I watch Camelot. I know those are fantasy … But I also watch The Tudors."
This is where I would get super judgy except I watched the fuck Game of Thrones & The Tudors, &, I mean, I run a blog called “Fuck Yeah History of Britain” where I spend the majority of the time making fun of medieval obesity, the plague, & so forth … So, yeah, no judgments here … Which, by the way, has nothing to do with the fact that she’s smoking hot.
"In cricket, a googly is a type of delivery bowled by a right-arm leg spin bowler. It is occasionally referred to as a Bosie (or Bosey), an eponym in honour of its inventor Bernard Bosanquet."
I have no F’ing clue what any of that means.
He’s got a point. CHILI’s > TGIFriday’s …
The Elizabethan Religious Settlement brought a sense of stability to England, albeit an uneasy one; the process formally & permanently established the monarch as the Supreme Governor of the Church or England & introduced the Book of Common Prayer as the authoritative liturgical guide for believers over the objections of English Catholics and the Papacy. Unfortunately, passing the various legislative acts that brought the settlement into existence (whilst, at the same, time foiling various plots on her life & demolishing Spain in decisive naval battles) forced Queen Elizabeth I to ignore her OKCupid page for basically her entire reign … which is a shame because this handsome chap “winked” at her all the time.
Fact: Soulja Boy does not roll with a Peregrine Falcon;
Fact: James I & IV did;
Ergo: All … the girls … are on … James, damn …
… for nary a fuck was, on that day, given.
King James II of England & VII of Scotland’s dedication to absolute monarchy & Roman Catholicism, & his Pro-French positions led ultimately to the untenability of his reign. With James becoming increasingly at odds with Parliament, the nobility, & the common people, a cohort of nobles requested that his nephew & son-in-law, William of Orange (in the Netherlands), a Protestant, invade England. What followed - & we’re talking around 1689, by the way - was termed the “Glorious Revolution”, where the Catholic James fled England, abdicated his throne, & William of Orange, now William III, & his wife, Mary (James’ Protestant daughter) jointly claimed the throne … James did, eventually, start giving a fuck, though, by the time he launched his failed Jacobite invasion in Ireland in 1690 (culminating in the Battle of the Boyne), fucks came to be less important than popular opinion & a superior fighting force.
That’s why Mrs. Whit—ahem, I mean, Catherine of Aragon, was so desperate to get her hands on those Holbein sketches … Visages of the King and Anne Bolyen in flagrante delicto, remember?!
hayleekitties asked: !!!! you are back!
