So, anti, when are you going to explain your intriguing name to us?
Eventful, yes–the unusual (not necessarily biggest) event of the Vigil was my being able to appreciate the bedrock of the Church so fully and not be troubled by the things I usually complain about (which, as noted, were not all that much in evidence anyway, so I can’t claim any great degree of resignation).
i read that ancient jews considered the pagan gods and goddesses to be demonic entities. now i have been for quite some time suspicious about those gods and goddesses. i had doubts that they didn’t really exist. i didn’t think all the myths were real, but to me it seemed something was really going on. and so when i read about that, i thought, hey, that makes sense. (i’m not saying i totally believe it’s true, but i certainly think it’s possible.)
i sometimes pretend that if i don’t screw up, i’d be one of those who’ll kick little demon butts back to where they belong.(emphasis on the pretend.)
(big huge emphasis!)
and why aphrodite?
i don’t like them all, but–goddess of love indeed! gimme a break.
i’ve actually written a bit about how it would happen. hehe… in one i did it with roses. now i’m thinking about doing it using her own precious golden apples. hah!
That’s great. For some reason I had an inkling it might be something along those lines. I have the same suspicion about some of those pagan deities–suspect that there is a mixture of fancy and scary fact in the myths.
