creative n destructive, Cyclops were the true masters of the Smith. volcanoes were believed to be the aftermath of their underground work. these giants, with one round eye in the center of their foreheads, consider humans as food. they had given Zeus the thunder n lightning as a sign of gratitude when he released them from the underworld. Polyphemus (son of Poseidon n Thoosa) was the most popular cyclops. in the Odyssey, he fought Odysseus whom came out victorious by blinding Polyphemus.

Your Blog Should Be Purple
You're an expressive, offbeat blogger who tends to write about anything and everything. You tend to set blogging trends, and you're the most likely to write your own meme or survey. You are a bit distant though. Your blog is all about you - not what anyone else has to say.

the first star appeared in the poorly lit sky. proudly it shone upon the duo, indulged completely in their embrace. draped tightly in each others arms, everything seemed to paused underneath its warming glow, compassionately allowing them to linger. a moment powerful enough to overwrite all the unspoken.

leaping past the negativity, evading just seconds too late resulted in slamming hard face-down onto the hard cold, concrete path. focusing excessively on the bad, certain culture especially, tend to keep the good in the dark n repetitively brought up the bad. adapting the encouraging culture from the western, complimenting n acknowledging could be so much more powerfully motivating.

every once in a while, she would cry herself to sleep for some reason. staining the pillow, sobbing n aching under the blanket, straining to hug herself. she would crave for the attention she never had the guts to request. as much as she wanted to scrub away the pain, she hung on, striving to count every blessing. n when the world stopped spinning, she would out of habit picking at words, forming in rearranging them countless times in her head, until it tire her out n pull her under.

though it will be pleasant to roll in that feeling, indulged for the rest of the night, he concluded it was time to back down n face a little reality. he concentrated in earning respects, smiling n chatting twice as needed. when the crowd finally eased out of the room, he stood absolutely still, catching himself staring back from the mirror hung at the far side of the wall. eyes narrowed with intensity, he shook himself out of it n walked further down the hall, shoulder slumped in response to the thought of the icy cold night waiting just outside the double-door.

they cannot accept long distance relationship. they enjoyed lively environments. if they were to have a partner but not being with each other everyday, they find the relationship meaningless n boring. they may not worry about a third person in their partner's life, since they are more prone to leave first.

Minotaur (offspring of Cretan Bull n Pasiphae) was a fearful man-eating beast with a head n tail of bull on a body of man.
Minos fought with his brothers for the right to rule. he prayed to Poseidon to send him a white bull as a sign of approval. he was to sacrifice the bull in honor of Poseidon but kept it instead. to punish Minos, Poseidon caused Pasiphae (Minos' wife) to fall in love with the bull (the Cretan Bull) n the offspring was born. he grew n became ferocious. Minos locked him in a gigantic labyrinth. every year, 7 youths n maidens were fed to him. it lasted for 9 years, until Theseus, who fell in love with Minos' daughter (Ariadne), went into the labyrinth, solved the maze n slayed the sleeping Minotaur.

squeaking faintly n twitching difficultly on its back, it was desperately trying to flip over n be freed. muted suddenly as if it drifted on, but only to move frantically again moments later. repeated movements initiated, survival instinct taken complete control over its tiny body, fighting back through will.

what a world this is, it is wonderful n it is scary. each day is a surprise itself. being the last person in the world to block his place in the sun, bracing herself, she flashed him a knowing smile. but it didn't escape his quick attention that the smile was slightly ambiguous. she received plenty of admiring looks, perched at the table in the middle of the room, staring straight at him from across the half-filled room, hands clasped weakly in front of her. she went into a state of unnerving suspension - eyes opened but not seeing, body unmoving, her expression blank.

Anubis was a man with the head of a jackal. unlike a real jackal, his head was black, representing his position as the god of the dead. Anubis protected the dead n bring them to the afterlife, a patron of mummification. based on the Egyptians, the reason for Anubis being half a jackal was because dogs n jackals often hunted at the edges of the desert, especially the cemeteries where the dead were buried.

they were spirits that survived n gained power through musics played by humans, coexisted with the them through contracts. to save their world from the evil humans (n their contracted spirits), they had to increase their level to gain victory. the plot of the anime was simple, the way they fought through musics, though could be more impressive, was unique enough to catch attention.

more popular than the Greek's sphinx, Egypt's Sphinx was a zoomorphic figure, a lion or lioness with a human head. occasionally with the head of a hawk or ram. the role of sphinx was as temple guardians, placed with royal tombs or temples. it quickly became traditional n many pharaohs had their heads carved on the guardian statues, showing closeness with the powerful Sekhmet (the warrior goddess of Egypt in lioness form).

a sudden change of environment might be taunting n unsettling, but refreshing n tranquilizing concurrently. a short getaway one could only yearn for, falling straight onto a perfect path n timing. though the comeback doubled its blow, it wasn't strong enough to not anticipate further!

shoved through thick n thin together for coon's age. this time, he wanted to cut him lose. too much disappointments n worries in his life, he simply wasn't willing to undertake anymore. unnecessarily distracted, he weighted the possibilities. swinging between guilt n delight, he pondered more than he absolutely had to. it was like being caught up in a frenzy, partly out of sheer delight, partly anger, n partly out of fear.

Hercules n Iolaus put an end to the hydra by by burning the stump of each head as soon as it was cut off. when the last head was left, they tore it off, avoiding the poisonous blood.

speeding down the racing track, wildly, fiercely. anxiousness turned furry, intensity transformed into strength, vision blurred, ramming with brute force. as the shadows gotten longer, jaw set n determined to ward off the approaching aura - so dark, so distorted, having slim chance to deflect. "evil will never find peace; it may triumph, but it will never find peace."

their adventure continued from the First Season. the duo traveled through towns heading north, closer to her hometown. their relationship blossomed as they depended on each other to earn maximized profits. a slow moving anime with lots of business terminology. most of the time, it made no sense to me, but it didn't reduce the fun that i was having watching them!

the Sphinx was most familiar from ancient Egypt, but showed up in Greek myth, in the story of Oedipus. the demon of destruction n bad luck, Sphinx (daughter of Typhon n Echidna) had a head n chest of a woman, the body of a lion, the wings of an eagle, n a serpent headed tail. she would asked passersby to solve riddles. if failed, she devoured them. she told Oedipus the answer, to make him love her. he left without thanking her. it destroyed her n she doesn't re-appear in Greek mythology anymore.
