Domina Marcella and I discuss heraldry, Gulf Wars, and a list of things to do with a courtesan once you’ve found them!
A lovely opportunity to enjoy the company of another Roman sex worker, Meretrix Domina Marcella comes to visit me this afternoon and enjoys the hospitality of my atria. We discuss some of our favorite things: war, classes, heraldry, parties, Tom Hiddleston. What do you think, lovelies? Should we be @-ing these real world hotties when they get mentioned in our salons?
Not a lot to write in this salon’s notes.
Common questions about heraldry in the SCA, answered by our heralds.
The wonderful poem Marcella reads is Catullus’ Carmen 16, sometimes called “Paedicabo ego vos et irrumabo”. Learn more about it in this article talking about how it’s sheer vulgarity kept it from being translated when people were too prude. Just another instance of sexual repression getting in the way of progress and knowledge.
