Mythic Monday is both late and a repeat…because I’m buried in boxes.

This one, originally published last fall here: Mythic Monday: Brownie seems apropos for the unpacking extravaganza.

And then there were assholes making snarky superior comments about how Robin Williams is going to hell for committing suicide,… Continue reading Mythic Monday (Sort of): Yggdrasill – If You Can Pronounce It, You May Be A Viking
