This weekend my sister and I bought a closet in a second-hand shop. Today my mum an dad went to pick it up. At home I realised the shop assistants had forgotten to take out the items who had been on display in the closet.
Most of it was rubbish but one thing was a coffe pot, after some googling it turns out it’s an original Arne Jacobsen coffeepot worth some €250.
this is why i have trust issues
That moment in your childhood when you realize that Diagon Alley is just the word diagonally….
And the Mirror of Erised is just the word desire backwards.
Didn’t even realize. Does that mean Knockturn Alley is nocturnally (dark/night)?
Yes, and Grimmauld Place is a play on grim old place.
HOLY SHIT this moment came to me at 21 ok
Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virile. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.
Mythology Meme - [1/7] Norse Gods/Goddesses - Loki
Loki is the seductively handsome Norse god of fire and a trickster god. He is the son of two giants, Fárbauti and Laufey. His two brothers (in which were to be beside him in Ragnarok) are Býleistr and Helblindi. He is referred to as the blood-brother of Odin. Loki becomes harbinger of Ragnarok and the father of the three chaos monsters: Fenrir, Jörmungandr, and Hel. Loki’s mischief and intellect is not to be underestimated. (x)
"the raven" only its about macklemore. thanks for following my blog
once inside a thrift shop dreary, while i browsed there, weak and weary,
over many a quaint and curious greatcoat of forgotten bore—
while I nodded, puissance sapping, suddenly there came a yapping,
as of some one whitely rapping, rapping at my bargain store—
“‘tis some visitor,” i muttered, “rapping at my bargain store—
only this and macklemore.”
