Apparently, Madonna's lapdog (sorry, husband) is making a gangster flick, and is taking his "spiritual advisor" into every meeting. Can you imagine. "Pastor, how should I film this man being shot in the knackers and then run over, before he is thrown in the river?"

Mary Sue Lives!

I had to join. I had to metaquote this gem from othercat.

Actually, the Sirens from the Oddyssey (misspelled) weren't part fish part girl, they were part bird part girl. "Sirens" didn't start getting equated with mermaids till much later. There's a some old pictures where they have wings *and* fishtails though.

/brief mythology dorkiness

Why anyone would claim to be a Bean Sidhe is sort of a mystery...it'd be like claiming to be Third Gabriel Ratchet from the Right in the Wild Hunt.

It may be mythology dorkiness that causes only me and similarly strange people to laugh, but I am now making an icon of the Third Gabriel Ratchet from the Right.

Talking to my folks the other day. Apparently my 4-year-old nephew went to a public restroom for the first time alone last week at vacation Bible school. He was so proud he was telling everyone who would listen, "I went all by myself---no adults, no other kids...just me and Jesus!"

Most drivers here are reckless idiots.

I have a rather foul mouth while driving.

That said, and having already dubbed approximately half the inhabitants of the city openings for fecal matter and doubting the legitimacy of their birth, if Mother will let me take the wheel on the freeway to my grandmother's today I will soon get to question the parentage of interstate travellers as well.

What fun. I'm going global, one moron at a time.
