I am the very model of a Hellenist individual
My festivals are derived entirely from Burkert et al
I'm quite adept at reconstructing Hellenismos theory from what I have read
From Walter Otto, Jane Harrison, and everything Kerenyi has ever said

Many Hellenists I have emailed and in person have met
And all of their Hellenic wisdom I understand and jokes I of course do get
I've even told fluffy bunnies to go fly a kite
From Robert Graves to Bulfinch I've told them to go and get it right

I keep all of the other recons on their toes
I quote page and chapter from Walter Burkert and watch as their confusion grows!
I even keep quotes memorized from Karl Kerenyi
Even though the idea of Hades and Dionysos being the same doesn't agree with me

I know all of the names and traits of the gods, nature spirits, even Furies,
Then to impress them all I can recite a book from W.K.C. Gutherie
I have just about every book on Hellenismos imaginable
Including Old Stones, New Temples written by Drew Campbell

You see from all reconstructionist festival and ritual
I am the very model of a Hellenist individual!

Transcript for those who can't see the image:

Female pagan says to the male pagan: "Could you please keep the music down when I'm meditating...'s weird when Mariah Carey's voice comes from Apollo's mouth."

[11:04] Pythia777: I don't know either. Go fish?
[11:04] NecessaryTrout: Your losing me what are you talking about what don't you know
[11:05] Pythia777: A trout. Is it not the highest form of existence? I do not know.

So last night I dreamt of the World's Fluffiest Pagan. It was actually quite funny and made fun of itself as it went along.

Ready? Here goes.

Name: Lady Rainbow Brite Moonsparkle

Motto: "What would Isis-Hecate-Kali-Morrigan-Brigid-Inanna-Sekhmet-Diana-Athena-Yemaya do?"

Totem: Unicorn. In fact this is where she got her name! She had a vision while meditating of a brillant unicorn with a rainbow colored mane and sparkles all over him that reminded her of moonbeams!!! She was so spiritually inspired by this vision she became "Lady Rainbow Brite Moonsparkle".

Pet peeve: Being confused with an 80s cartoon character.

Favorite handmade charm: a big rainbow pin with a thunderbolt and storm cloud hanging from each end to remind her of Zeus, her special pal who's fun to be with!

I seriously, really, truly dreamt this and woke up laughing my ass off.
