Well, this episode certainly takes a turn. Advertisements
This week, we’re going to go back to Greece and a tale that has some familiar elements if you’ve been reading these posts for a while.
Welcome back to Mythology Monday! Today, I’m going to talk about yet another Norse myth. This one involves Thor crossdressing in a bid to get his stolen hammer back. To be fair, I’ve seen dudes crossdress for less.
You may have noticed that I’ve changed the tiers on my Patreon a little bit. I wasn’t particularly fond of the $5 tier, since nothing in it seemed all that great. With that, I decided to make post suggestions open to all patrons (well, all readers of the blog, really, but patrons get shot up to the front of the list). I also decided to offer a tangible reward for the second tier. Basically, that reward is that I will knit or crochet an item and send it to patrons who give $10/post or more. These would be smaller items, such as a hat, scarf, wrist warmers, or washcloths. Bigger items, such as blankets, would be a bit prohibitive in both cost of materials and shipping, unless it’s a small blanket for a baby or pet.
I’m thinking that this change makes things a little bit clearer, and would offer supporters a more tangible reward for their support.
Most people know what the Minotaur is: giant half-man half-bull creature, lived in a labyrinth, was eventually killed by Theseus. That’s not the story I want to talk about today, however. No, I want to talk about how the Minotaur came to be in the first place.
Strap in, folks, ‘cause this is gonna be a trip.
Welcome back to Mythology Mondays! Today I shall relate the tale of the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet, or how beer saved the world.
