Getting the RL complaining/exhaustion out of the way first: The family spent five hours in A&E last night after my mother had an alarming series of seizures. She also apparently has a kidney infection. She's still in hospital.
This makes this the fourth weekend in two months where shit didn't stop happening
. If we weren't in A&E here, we were in A&E the next county over, or we were in my Granddad's one-month-anniversary mass wherein my mother promptly had a seizure, or we were at my granddad's effing funeral
. It's getting to the point where I go into work Monday morning and my colleagues are afraid to ask how my weekend went, because chances are good I spent it in bloody hospital
. Or, you know, at a funeral. And the month before that, we were visiting granddad in hospital. We practically have reserved effing parking at the hospital car park.
*crumples* Swear to any and all gods you care to name, there is very little I wouldn't give right now not to have to see that place again for ... well, years preferably, but even more than a week at a time would be nice. The county ambulance crews practically know our address by heart. We keep making jokes about frequent flier miles, but honestly if I have to see that bloody car park one more bloody time ...
Argh! Okay. Shutting up now, complaining done. *scrubs hands through hair* If anyone was wondering why I've been largely incommunicado the past while, ah, I hope that clears things up a little -_-;
Now. Moving swiftly on, and for something completely different - I'm watching OUAT of a Monday morning before I go to work. It's probably been one of the few consistent routines I've managed the past few weeks, and it's probably been doing more to keep me afloat than a TV show of such questionable quality should. *smiles crookedly*
And finally, to finish up with some random mythology, I recently came across this tumblr post
showing the table of contents for what looks like a very tongue-in-cheek book on mythology. I recognise an alarming amount of the stories examined, I think -_-; "Odin Gets Construction Discounts With Bestiality", yes. "King Midas is: GOLDFINGER". "Abraham is Totally Cool with Stabbing his Kid in the Face", yup. Some I don't recognise off-hand, though, and now I'm curious. "Killer-of-Enemies and the International House of Vaginas"? Native American mythology sounds fascinating -_-; "Eshu Elegba Is Probably The Last Dude You Want Approving Your Friendship"? And it's been a while for Greek mythology, is "Friends Don't Let Friends Bang Cows" referring to Zeus and Io, or was there some other cow-related greek myths that I'm forgetting? (Lets be honest, there probably was. I'm guessing Zeus, though, because he was definitely your go-to guy for bestiality in greek myth).
In short? Mythology is where the original crack fic was born. *nods nods* And contained an awful lot of bestiality, for some reason ...
