About

Or the ego page. I am 63 and live in Birmingham UK

The most important facts about me as far as this blog is concerned (some of which have changed since I started it in 2009) are…

  1. I am an anarcho-socialist.
  2. I am an atheist.
  3. I am a depressive. I have suffered from depression since the mid-80’s and been unable to work since 1996; from that year until around 2003 were the worst years.
  4. I am a Women’s Football Fan – specifically Birmingham City Women.
  5. I love Americana/Country music.
  6. I am a lazy, skittering person but I do try to educate myself: my attempts at this always demonstrate to me the depths of my own ignorance and the utterly pathetic state of the education I have received – not merely the given state of education in a capitalist system but the especial insularity and dullness of the British educational system in particular.
  7. I like the poets Byron and Crabbe.

    Hello! Always glad to meet a fellow women’s football fan.

    From the blog title, I take it you also like the poet Pope? You no doubt know that in his day a ‘toyshop’ was not a vendor of children’s toys but was more akin to a modern-day gift shop.

    Best wishes!
