While I did not get eaten by sharks, there was a bit of disappearing. Sorry about that, and will catch up on replies as soon as I can.

I managed to finish out the month o' Spooks at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van mostly by autoposting. Fun, but exhausting!

In the meantime: the beginning of July. Wow. Never a dull moment, that's for sure.

When things get crazy around here, the grocery shopping turns into a sort of blitzkreig. I distinctly remember cruising the through the produce department at high speed and wondering what any melon could do to deserve the name Athena melon. Despite the haze of fatigue, I must have snagged one, because it was in my cart at the checkout! Despite the intriguing name, sadly, no Greek goddesses sprung out of it when cut. It looked like a big cantaloupe, and lo and behold, it was. But tasty.

LOL about the melon. (Well, it would have made for good fic, but probably an inconvenience in rl; there is always trouble when random gods turn up in unexpected places in modern life). I hope things calm down a bit soon, for you!

Yes, it would have been very inconvenient, especially if some of the other Greek gods turned up and had a throwdown. It's always trouble when Athena, Aphrodite and Hera start arguing about who makes the best quiche ...

Thanks for the good thoughts. It's a good kind of busy, but I'll also be happier when things are calmer!

I'd like to think it was someone creative, but they probably just threw a dart at a dictionary!

I do have to say that this was by far the best melon I have ever eaten. Not that I normally keep a list.

I love that image. LOL Sometimes I think that's how our students get named. Their parents throw a dart out in to the world and just use whatever it hits.
