Why can't the world stop for you...
and silence fill the shadows in my heart.

Why won't the stars cease to burn...
Cast the deeping dark a darker hue.
Please let the earth cease to turn,
So I can be alone, with my memory of you.

Translating Ovid's rendition of Theseus leaving Ariadne on Naxos. This is definitely my favorite letter we have translated so far... LOL POOR ARIADNE. Wakes up on beach in early morning in winter (she says something about there being rime everywhere) and she reaches out to snuggle Theseus but hes GONE! She's half asleep so she tries again but LO HE IS GONE! I probably like this one best because she is writing what she is doing so it's more of a story than an OMG I H8 U Y U LEAVE ME, ALL THIS STUFF ALREADY HAPPENED SO I'M JUST GONNA MONOLOGUE AT YOU KAY? Naw not Ariadne... not yet at least. She is much more sympathetic though than Dido, I think. Running now here now there, either place without order, calling THESEUS! And the curved rocks of the cliffs echo his name back at her for every time she calls him, willing to aid her in her misery. Those heartless crags!!! Ohhh she calls out to him to turn back... she calls to him from the top of a cliff she climbed with her bare hands. She says he forgot a member of his crew... but he left her apurpose. WOE! Oh gosh darn... she's jumping up and down waving her hands and shouting to give him a signal... this is definitely the saddest letter so far. Definitely. :C

That Theseus is a total dickweed! I mean srsly... there are better ways to let a girl down. Geez, I mean take her to Athens and set her up with your brother or your best friend or something. Don't freaking abandon her on an island!!! If that hobag hadn't done that, his dad wouldn't have killed himself. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET FOR ABANDONING LADYFOLKS ON ISLANDS!!! You get your dad committing suicide. That's right.

Sing me,muse, of a man and of strife. Who, cast from the shores of his noble ancestors to suffer the many unfortunate fates flung upon him by the relentless tides of destiny, was made to wander the earth for sixteen years. But whose wrath could cause such misfortunes, whose will offended would force such trials on a man so distinguished in his skill and unwavering in his nobility? T'was fierce Lindsay Lohan, much insulted by multiple arrests. Noble prince Eutychus turned her in on many occasions; and so, her fame now scorned by all, she turns her baleful gaze on the hero whose righteous anger caused her such shame and swears on the sky and the moon and the stars to aid her in her bloody work.

So it is that the Lohan-born seeks Aemilius, the king of the winds, who, sitting in his lofty halls on the mountain of Katahdin, keeps the winds- the vicious Boreas and raving Notus and swirling Eurus, and rushing Zephyrus- chained like wild beasts in the caverns and hollows of the vast belly of the mountain, which is heaped over them in a mass.
Unforgetting Lohan addressed Aemilius"COME AEMILIUS, HEED MY WORDS. SEND YOUR WINDS TO TOSS FOUL EUTYCHUS TO THE FAR REACHES OF THE KNOWN WORLD!"
Aemilius, no fool, who was hand selected to keep the winds, knows it would be a grave trespass to release the winds without the approval of his father, asks
"Oh queen, you would have me do that which I have been forbidden to think of. To give free rein to the winds would cause great destruction. But I am as always your humble servant, oh mistress of my master."
Vicious Lohan replies "Oh King of the winds, in return for your loyalty, I will give you the most attractive of my man-whores."
Those short speeches having been spoken, Aemilius heaves his staff from its resting place and strikes the mountain. The chains binding the winds break as a twig beneath a raging beast's hooves and they are set free upon the earth, whirling and consuming in a vortex. Notus and Eurus whirl across the land, rending trees from their earthy anchorage, whipping entire rivers from their beds and tossing them high into the air, causing them to fall down like a torrential downpour on the carefully cultivated fields of the farmers. Zephyrus and Boreas shear the leaves from the trees and the grass from the fields like a reaper's scythe at harvest, leaving not one ear standing high. It is this tumult that finds Eutychus, safely sleeping in his peaceful home, and tears him from his lands and his holdings. He whips and whirls in the air. He sees the fields fly past, now the mountains, now the seas, now foreign lands never before touched by a civil foot. Spinning and tossing violently, he wishes badly to have died a hero's death, serving his grand country with his valor, under his father's eyes, where so many other courageous souls perished. Having shouted his will to the stars, the winds cease, and he plummets to the ground.

Alone and lost on a foreign shore, Eutychus scouts his surroundings. Across a vast plain he spots a bridge, and seven deer grazing in a field, led by a massive buck with many-forked antlers. He despairs of the bow and arrows he does not posess, for a great hunger has overcome him. And so, he decides to press on, aware that there are greater forces at work than those of mere mortal status. He walks through the field and to the wooden bridge. Its massive braces and supports reach up several stories to the ether, almost close enough to the clouds that if they so wished, the astral bodies could be touched by a man standing at the very apex of the gargantuan structure. Eutychus takes a first step onto the bridge, and then he hears a crack like a whip carried aloft by a vaquero when he drives his cattle from the plains to the water, and he is faced by an enormous, hideous troll. Its face is wrinkled in an offset grin- the small eyes with great folds, not unlike those on the oldest of the elders in the village. The terrifying titan rears to its full height and thunders- its voice rumbling like a volcano before the ash and searing rock tumble down its sides.
"Problem, Greek?"

OK so as some of you might maybe sort of kind of know is that Kellogg's has been marketing all of the weird poptarts flavors- well, I decided to try a couple new ones, just for kicks. The ones I chose were blueberry muffin and apple strudel. WEEEELLLL let's just say they are indeed something of a departure from the normal poptarts... the filling inside the blueberry muffin poptart is reeeeeeeeally gooey- to the point it sort of dribbles out, which is kind of inconvenient if you like to eat your poptarts out of a pocket on your backpack like I do >.> but the taste is ok, just a bit too sugary, so I won't buy that kind again. However, the apple strudel I actually really like- I had to get over the taste of the poptart crust though, since it just tasted like nasty mass manufactured crust (which it is). The filling is nice and not goopy so it's perfect for my main method of public nomming, and also it actually tastes like apple filling! So yes, I quite enjoyed that new flavor.
