Question: So, why did you call the last few posts "England’s Dreaming" when in fact a significant chunk of British folklore originated in Scotland, Wales and Ireland?
Answer: I didn’t think the Celtic nations would mind.
Q: Are you insane?
A: If you’d actually read the posts you’d know the answer to that already.
Q: Seriously, why did you choose that title?
A: Because I’ve always liked the phrase and I’d like to celebrate a fine purveyor of dairy products.
Q: So, is there anything you think you missed over the England’s Dreaming posts?
A: Robin Hood.
Q: And the anti-globalisation agenda?
A: Ooo, good one!
Q: And you missed the phrase "The pen is mightier than the sword" in the Excalibur post, didn’t you?
A: Yeah, and that could have lead into a discussion of story-telling traditions.
Q: Do you know anything about story-telling traditions?
A: Do comics count?
Q: I’m asking the questions here.
A: Fair point.
Q: Are you going to do any more of these posts?
A: Probably, just need to clear some head space so I can look at Robin Hood, local legends and some obscure stuff that I sort of half know about.
Q: So have you enjoyed writing this stuff?
A: Yeah. That’s what I like about blogging, the free-wheeling stream-of-consciousness stuff. You don’t get to do that when you’re writing TPS reports.
Q: So was there anything else you missed?
A: Um. No.
Q: Are you sure?
A: There’s a reason for that. I forgot how to spell Jehovah in Hebrew.
Q: With an I.
A: Thank you.
