An Interpretive Friday

Seen in xanath's journal:

Isis
Indeed, you are 79% erudite, 66% sensual, 33% martial, and 29% saturnine.
This Egyptian
supreme Goddess is certainly the most influential deity on subsequent
cultures. She was the ideal figure of womanhood, usually compared with
the Greek Goddess Demeter or her Roman version, Ceres.


Isis was one element of a Holy Trinity, the remaining two figures being her brother and husband Osiris and their heroic son Horus. She was the Goddess of Magic for her brilliance, as well as the Goddess of Love because of her tenacious devotion.


She is often shown with wings, curving to caress coffins and sarcophagi
of many a king. In certain papyri she is shown with her falcon wing
headdress, covering her ears. One of her sacred symbols is the sistrum,
a musical instrument that was believed to ward off evil spirits. Isis'
sistrum was carved bearing the image of a cat and was representative of
the Moon.


Isis was the High Priestess and an omnipotent magician as well as the only being ever to discover the secret name of Ra.
She invariably carries the ankh, the symbol for eternal life. Her name
is, by the rules of numerology, adding up to the number “2” and she
just so happens to be depicted on the tarot card “Key 2 – The High
Priestess”.

Movie: Mark and I saw The Interpreter this evening. It was an absorbing film, very intelligently written. Sean Penn actually convinced me his character was real! I thought Nicole Kidman did a superb job, and I spent a good part of the movie theorizing as to what the real assassination plot was.

My character David Young guessed wrong. *snicker*

For me, the most profound part of this movie was when Kidman's character describes how justice is carried out in the villages of the fictional African country she comes from. I wish I could remember one very beautiful quote from that scene. I found that part very moving.

Interestingly, Kidman in this movie looks a lot like an Imperial Secrets NPC of mine, Lady Maroise d'Mordaut. It was rather neat watching her--her accent was perfect for my NPC--and wondering who I could cast as her husband Alarique.

As for upcoming movies, I do want to see Kidman again in Bewitched. They've come up with a very fun way to do the remake.

We had dinner at Napoli's, and I ate a 10-inch pizza with my favorite toppings--hamburger, green olives, onions, and pineapple. Delicious! For once, the chef didn't get my order wrong.

Reading List: Latest book to add to my reading list is: Deficit of Decency by Zell Miller.

Work: I spent today organizing the brochures that I am responsible for keeping track of and re-odering when they run low. They were in a real mess, since my predecessor in this job was promoted several months ago. It was nice to get that done.

Maybe I'll clean my living room next.

Uh-huh. "Dream on...Dream on..."

Braille: Practice in Braille grade two continues, and I think I am learning it well. Being able to use the version of it that I invented helps immensely, because I can practice it all day without need of a slate and stylus.

Current Mood: goodgood

I took it and scored Isis too. Weird.

Kris--Oh, neat!

I didn't expect to score quite so high on 'erudite,' but then, I do consistently score as Ravenclaw in all of the 'get Sorted' quizzes, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

I was wondering if Hecate would be one of the choices.

I wonder if Madame Pele (Hawaiian goddess of volcanos) is there anywhere....
