For those of you who are not sure, there is a distinct difference between pleasure and happiness. Pleasure exists in the here and now, for the most part. It consists of those little moments of bliss, such as winning the lottery, typing The End on your first manuscript, and going on a date that ends with many moments of pleasure over an extended period.
But these moments are transitional and do not in themselves constitute total happiness. They contribute to it, certainly, but happiness depends on more than just having a good time between the sheets or winning some cash.

History can be as dull as a October day in Leitrim and as dry as the Saharan landscape. But when all else fails, and stuff needs to be learned, add sex to the mixture and, Hell’s Bells, watch the application forms for history degrees arrive in the post or online.
It all started with HBO’s series Rome, if you ask me. A place where togas were optional rather than required attire. Then you had Henry VIII and The Tudors gallivanting their way around medieval England. Now with The Borgias along for the ride, maybe there’ll be an influx of new priests.
