Signal boosting 😀
At time of writing, we are just shy of 80% of our original goal of five-thousand dollars. While those of us behind this fundraiser received some words of scorn and contempt from a select few, the community’s response was almost entirely positive and solidly on the same page. Collectively, we condemned those that would murder in the name of their pettiness and their hatred, we reminded ourselves about the truth honor of Heathen spirituality, and we put politics aside in the name of respect and frith towards the families of those who were struck down.
There is nothing wrong with what we have done thus far, but I would love to see us finish what we started and complete our original goal. Not in the name of Heathens United, nor in the name of any national organization. Not in the name…

This is a very good compilation of the issues at the core of the #YesAllWomen tag.
Ok, yesterday was the camp for my son’s Beaver scouts. We couldn’t camp out because of reasons, but we went for the day and had a pretty good time. That was until we had to leave of course.
Here is a high quality artistic rendition of what happened.
As you can see, I got into a fender bender with Dude car. My car has like his paint on it, and MAYBE a scratch. I cracked his bumper. 😦 I still have my N on my license so I’m all like ERMAHGERD I AM TOAST when my husband finds out.
Well I emailed him and told him what happened, along with this nice artistic rendition of the events.
I had a day long panic attack because I didn’t know how pissed he was at me, and all the bad scenarios were going through my head, and yes I was about to just give up driving all together. I couldn’t even bring myself to look at my car today.
That got solved. Suddenly, my newly touched up tattoo started getting warm, painful, and ooky. I’m like “Great, probably because I didn’t clean it often yesterday…” and I went to look for the polysporin. Nope…I’m like “CRAP I must have left it in the car…crap…” So I *had* to go and get the stuff out of the car… Odin 1 My paranoid self: 0 After that wonderful feat, a coupon for a free Blizzard from DQ just showed up on my desk. Expired tomorrow.
I sigh heavily and am like “I’m being rewarded with ice cream?”
“Only if you go drive to get it…time’s ticking..”
So after supper I went and got this:
because I’m a sucker for ice cream…as much as The One who dangled the carrot in front of my face, so to speak.
See, when I run into something really big and bad, such as FAILURE, or an accident or something, I have a habit of just giving the fuck up. Going NOPE NOPE NOPE NOT DOING IT FUCK THAT. I mean I was about to cancel my insurance, cut my license up and just go FUCK THIS.
Like I did when I was 16 and I hit a rock with my mom’s car. Caused a shitton of damage, was a decent sized rock, jutting out of the ground….I didn’t get behind the wheel again after that, until I was 33 years old.
The day before my road test, I put the car into the ditch. Three wheels in the air, (Car was still upright) had to get a farmer to tow us out with his tractor. I misjudged the distance off to the right.
My husband still made me take the road test.
Last night, I misjudged my distance to the right, again. I thought I had enough room, but I didn’t, and I dinged buddy’s car.
So, when I got home after getting the Blizzard that Loki dangled in front of my nose enticingly, this fell across my Tumblr Dash
OK OK I GET IT….
Still don’t think I should be on the road but hey, I can only learn from this and get better, I hope.
I’m not trying to be shady, I really am not. I have them pasworded for a reason. Now, if I know you on Facebook (or if I talk regularly to you on Tumblr or Twitter) or in real life, I can give you the passwords if you really want to read them. If I don’t know you, I won’t give them to you.
I just keep certain things close to my chest for specific reasons. Please understand.
This is the best blog post ever explaining the core differences between Lokean and “Mainstream Heathenry” (note the quotes) I love this post. ❤
Reblogging so I can come back to this and read it at length once my kids go to bed. So much good brain food and lore here.
I have been working on this little translation project since last fall, after I finished reading the wonderful book that is Yvonne S. Bonnetain’s Loki: Beweger der Geschichten (engl. roughly Loki: Mover of Stories), which is available as a kindle e-book through amazon.com here. Of course, I immediately went into all my facebook groups and told everybody how much I enjoyed reading that work; a work that was originally submitted as a PhD thesis and then revised and re-published in a more readily available form.
Problem: a lot of people don’t read German. So, predictably (in retrospect), I was asked to summarise it. Given that its original format is a 450 page tome of a dissertation, and given that its subject is Loki, it follows quite naturally that I was just a little overtaxed. A wee bit. So instead, I offered to translate the summary chapter of the book…
