Today the bodies of those Malaysians lost in MH17 are being brought home, and the Malaysian people are wearing black as a sign of solidarity and mourning. I am forever grateful that I didn’t lose anyone on that flight, but I so easily could have; I will be wearing black, too. There will also be a moment of silence some time between 10.45 and 11.30.

Well. Now. I’d love to say it was something pithy and sensible. But instead I’m going to quote translated medieval Icelandic Poetry at you.

The Coward thinks to live forever if he keep himself from strife; Time will not respect his truce, though the spears may spare his life.

Or translated from flowery, don’t let fear keep you from living as well as you can.

3. A secret you haven’t told many people.

It’s taken me a few years to realise my first romantic relationship wasn’t the one I thought it was.

8. List of concerts you’ve attended.

  • Turisas, 3 Nov 2011 in Glasgow
  • Within Temptation, some time in April 2014 in Glasgow
  • Chris Columbus, some time in 2012 in Manila

23. Ever been cheated on?

Complicated.

Number 2 if you will.

2. Drunken story. GO.

Where do I start?

Do you want the story where my first boyfriend accidentally gave me a black eye because we got drunk and had a lightsaber fight with glow sticks? Totally not his fault, by the way. I didn’t notice I had a black eye for most of the next day because I had to run, hungover, to my first class, so spent ages wondering why people were staring at me.

Or what about the time polkadotsandvideogames sent a-vinlander-skald-and-bearsark to walk me home because I was drunk, there had been blizzards, and she thought I was going to fall over and sleep in a snow drift? He had one job! I still managed to fall in a snow drift, and he laughed. (Ps: I’m pretty certain he’s the anon here, by the way.)

Or the time that I made up dance moves to Never Gonna Give You Up, along with my boss, who had only been my boss for a month? It was the work night out last Christmas. In the same trip I also punched a guy who grabbed my arse, and excused myself from the club before someone said anything, and the bouncer just looked impressed. I also tipped my cab driver a couple of quid because - and I quote - “is that a sunroof? That’s a nice sunroof. All cabs should have sunroofs. I like your sunroof. I bet you hear this a lot but your sunroof is so big”.

Or the time that I went out for a friend’s birthday along with wittedknitch and she kept coming to look for me because she thought I’d passed out on the toilet, because we both thought the world was blurry, or tasted funny, or something like that.

Most witches don’t believe in gods. They know that the gods exists, of course. They even deal with them occasionally. But they don’t believe in them. They know them too well. It would be like believing in the postman.

This book totally gets my vision of Apollon as the Theoi “prodigal son” and I love it

It just referred to Hermes as “the roguish latecomer”

ὁμιλία καὶ ὕπνος μόνοι δείκνυνται οὖσα θνητός.

-translation by classicsenthusiast

"Sex and sleep alone make me conscious that I am mortal."

requested by @ereshkegal

(FYI this is actually a “quote” misleadingly attributed to Alexander the Great, which stems from this section of Plutarch, wherein he states that:

ἔλεγε δὲ μάλιστα συνιέναι θνητὸς ὢν ἐκ τοῦ καθεύδειν καὶ συνουσιάζειν.”

or: “he said that he is most conscious of his mortality when sleeping or having intercourse.”)
