Καλώς Ορίσατε 2017

New year, new look here – after almost four years (eek!) – I thought I might change it up just a bit.  My last blog theme – Titan – fit the classical mold, and the new one – Quintus – is aptly classical as well.

What will the new year bring for Ancient Armitage?  Hard to say for sure, but coming attractions will definitely include an in depth study of Kallipygos, with both ancient and Armitage exemplars.  If rumors of an Armitage connection to a coming adaptation of the Sophoclean Oedipus cycle are true, I’ll definitely weigh in on that too.  I’d also like to revive some features like the “Kalos” and Virtutes Romanae posts this year.  Lots of room to explore!

I’ve recently been dabbling with some new culinary fun – Vietnamese summer rolls, spicy peanut sauce and…caramel corn (what can I say, I have eclectic tastes!)  I expect there’ll be a least a few food related posts.  Not to mention that I have one child preparing to graduate from high school while the other teeters on the edge of tweendom – life is a carnival (good thing there’s caramel corn!!)  

All that and more, coming soon – I hope you’ll read along 🙂

    Really like the new theme – still classically beautiful!
    PS: Misread the post title as “Kalos Opiate” and was wondering whether you were going to write about drugs 🤣

      I quite like it…just a bit more color.

      Drugs? Could be…didn’t we read something at Olympia about the shame incurred for using performance enhancers?

    I could really use some spicy peanut sauce – your posts for 2017 are sounding very interesting! Happy New Year!

      I latched onto it at a Vietnamese place my bestie in Milwaukee introduced me too, but I don’t get down there often enough so I’ve been experimenting at home with some pretty good results! I’ll post the recipe soon.

      Hi Katie70 – good to hear from you. You are so right…2017 seemed a lifetime away, and there are days when I still see him as a tiny bobble head covered in ice cream – now he’s nearly grown!

    Lookin’ good!
    You should come here to The Netherlands – peanut sauce is quite big here, it is even totally normal to eat peanut sauce with your French Fries! Asian food in general is popular here (influenced by the Dutch history with Indonesia), you might like it… 🙂
    Happy New Year to you!
