a matter of some "mythological" concern
Oh, what an interesting ad idea: What can the Old Gods tell us about 'no child left behind'?

The best part, of course, is that they include, er, a deity still worshipped by millions of people. You know, as a living part of the world's third largest religion.

As part of the play-at-home version, note that Susan Traiman is listed as the contact for these "myth" things -- her work number is given as 202-872-1260. I think it might be useful to let her know about Ganesh. The wrath of Ganesh upon the business roundtable!

Tales from the English Room
*waves* Hello to the lot of you, and you'll notice that I have braved the multiple exclamation marks in the name of this community for the sake of D'aulaires. That is dedication, say I. ^^

I took a class in Greeks this year; we read Oedipus Rex, and the various Greek gods came up. I started spouting about Poseidon and Athena and Hades and their relationships and so on and so forth, leaving great gaps of history out because I assumed everyone knew the story of Athena's birth, for example. Turns out not everyone did; a good majority of the class knew no Greek myths.

Bar only one or two, all of the people who were familiar with the classics?

Got their knowledge from D'aulaire's as a kid.

And, by the way, thought Hermes was a stone fox.

Current Mood: d'aulaires!

Ok starting this off
I'm not up to posting a full memory tonight, but I will ask this question:

Did the illustrations of Loki make anyone else drool slightly. Or were my thirteen-year-old hormones just more than a little pathetic that day?

Current Mood: curious
