If there were any justice in this world I’d be putting Elven braids in my and my husband’s hair to go see Desolation of Smaug but instead I’m on my couch getting a lot better acquainted with this flu. I’m done. Someone just take me to Mirkwood please.
People keep asking what I want for Yule and I have to think of a list of material things so I don’t blurt out a list of all the stuff I want miraculously fixed. That list goes something like:
*to not have to deal with a trauma anniversary every december for the rest of my life
*for my cat not to…
woah, I think those two last is a bit unrealistic, don’t you? :o
Maybe the littlest bit! Heh, you made me smile, so thank you.
First and foremost of the Aesir, Odin is the god of poetry, wisdom, war, and death. He hung for nine days, pierced by his own spear, on Yggdrasil, the world tree. Here he learned nine powerful songs and eighteen runes. He sacrificed one eye for a single drink from the well of wisdom. His hall in Asgard is Valaskjalf (“shelf of the slain”), where his throne Hlidskjalf is located. From this throne, he observes all that happens in the nine worlds. The tidings are brought to him by his two ravens, Huginn and Muninn (“thought” and “memory”). He also presides over Valhalla, where the Einherjar (dead warriors) fight, feast, and await Ragnarok.
