    Of course you can!! We Historians must stick together!!

    (Although, of course, it is a shame you aren't a pure Historian, if we're getting back to the idea of superior subjects :p: )

    (Jokes)
    I'm a HPol-ist as it were, which means I've got on foot in the History camp, and the other in the PPE camp, which in theory should make me superior to a "pure historian" (are they a race now?) :p: .

    But I couldn't give history up, so it made sense to do HPol rather than PPE.

    Welcome to the musical, dahling!

    Of course there is a race of pure historians. Like how musicians can be divided up into serious and non-serious musicians... You can guess which category I fall into... :ninja:

    Indeed there is, but we're very welcoming to all members of our wonderfully dysfunctional family. :grouphugs:

    Not all of us are covert musical prodigies, however. :no: I could make brownies for rehearsals maybe?

    I'm also pretty good at powerpoint presentations and convincing people I know what I'm talking about, so if you need those skills I'm your girl. Oh and I'm quite good at painting flowers and trees so if you need scenery...just don't ask me to paint people/animals or buildings.

    You're in charge of making our funding pitch to Teebs and his shady, Dragon's Den-esque cabal of PPEists, then. I tried, but "More popular than an Ed Wood film, less offensive than Springtime with Hitler" proved unconvincing

    A very inbred, odd race. I guess you're an offshoot, rather like a second cousin. :nods: (You're a Hippo! How cool is that?)

    And this musical is really taking off, isn't it? So, to keep in with our set painter who can do trees and flowers, we need to set it in a forest or a shrubbery. (*Feels Monty Python moment coming on....*)

    Hippo is cool, I am the hippo of Mansfield College (but where shall they put me, the college is so small, I doubt they could take a hippo).

    Yay for historians, we are cool people. :cool:

    Deal. I won a science competion where I had to do a presentation answering the question "Are human-animal chimeras the unacceptable face of science?" My answer was no, that scientists being allowed to do what they want without proper oversight was. I said this to a room full of scientists.......awkward. I think my sheer guts impressed them.

    Ni! Ni! Ni!

    Oh my goodness, what an awesome subject choice... how historically accurate was it?! :p:

    (I love the witch scene, on being found to be lighter than a duck: "it's a fair cop" :p: )

    Yay! :hugs:

    Being a covert musical prodigy is by no means a necessity. There's singing, acting and dancing, set design, prop making.

    I do like brownies though... :ninja:

    Oooh, powerpoints! That would def be required for funding purposes, plus to persuade the Woostarites to let us stage it there instead of doing the traditional summer opera. I got the impression they weren't too keen on my idea of doing 'West Side Story'...

    I concluded the costumes were quite good concidering it was set in the middle ages but that there were clear problems...but that it didn't matteras it was a comedy. So basically I concluded by saying that the whole essay was pointless, I still got an A* though.
