Jeremy Corbyn Style A-Z

An A-Z of Jeremy Corbyn's Political Style

Volume 50 of This Week In Fandom introduced me to 'Maylennials', the name given to fans of Theresa May, the UK's Conservative Prime Minister. The fandom mostly consists of fangirling the PM's fashion choices on Tumblr, Instagram, and blogs like Political Style. The latter is currently running a series on an A-Z of May's sartorial decisions, from jaunty hats to oversized accessories.

It inspired me to redress the balance and celebrate the real political style icon of our times: Jeremy Corbyn.

Friday Frivolity - Museums

Friday Frivolity

History has always been my passion - it stems right back to being a little kid and being amazed at the very idea there was a world before I was a part of it! This week #FridayFrivolity is celebrating International Museum Day, so I figured I'd dig up some of my favourite history songs. :D

Horrible Histories is the best!

Epic rap battles of history are always, well, epic.

The history of the Vikings set to soft rock. xD

Friday Frivolity - Food

Friday Frivolity

First things first, I want to apologise to everyone for being so flaky over the last few weeks. It feels like I've just got through the longest job interview in history! Last Thursday was local election day here in Wales and we spent the night at the count. (Well, I spent most of it in the toilets literally sick with nerves.) It was a long hard slog of campaigning but it paid off and all three seats in Pontnewydd went to Labour. :)

Anyway, now life is settling down again and I'm back with Friday Frivolity. This week's theme is food because May 11th is 'Eat What You Want Day'! I'm celebrating with some of my favourite food jingles...

McDonalds first arrived in the UK in the 1970s but it wasn't until the late 80s that it really started to threaten homegrown franchises like Wimpy Bar. With jingles like this one, it was always inevitable!

This jingle is a classic - even if I don't actually like Milky Bars!

The Chewitsaurus likes to chew it. Apparently.

You'll never put a better bit of butter on your knife.

Friday Frivolity - Rain

Friday Frivolity

I'm forever playing catch up with the linky the last few weeks - it's election season. I'm standing for re-election in the local council elections (two weeks to go!) and the Prime Minister has just announced a snap general election (six weeks to go!).

Rain is kind of summing up my mood every time I think of all the canvassing still to come...

Who wants to be foretold the weather? It is bad enough when it comes, without our having the misery of knowing about it beforehand

Friday Frivolity - Spiders

Friday Frivolity

This week's theme is my greatest fear - spiders! Man, I hate those creepy crawlies. Just the thought of them makes me feel ill, and look around the room to check there isn't one lurking... The only spider I'll give the time of day is Anansi and, even then, I try not to look at the illustrations!
