Classical Divinity Asks

(via question-meme. Some of these seem a bit ... tenuous in their connection between god and question, but eh; it's a nice batch of questions.)


Zeus: What is your favourite kind of weather?
Hera: What is the last book you read?
Poseidon: Where is your favorite place to go on a weekday afternoon when you have no plans or obligations?
Demeter: Are you spiritual or religious in any way? If so, how?
Athena: Would you rather be anxious and intelligent or carefree and simple?
Apollo: Name the last song you listened to?
Artemis: Do you believe it is vital to everyday life to know what is happening in the world around you?
Ares: Do you still remember arguments or upsets from over 5 years ago? Do they still bother you today?
Aphrodite: What did you love most about the place you grew up? What about it did you love the least?
Hephaestus: Do you have a favorite/most interesting Wikipedia page?
Hermes: What's the best nickname you've ever been called? & what's the worst?
Hestia: What is the weirdest scar you have and how did you get it?
Dionysus: If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
Hades: If you could find out the date of your death, would you want to know?
Heracles: What has been your biggest challenge in life so far?
Persephone: What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
Asclepius: What you ever lied about being ill to avoid school or work? If so, how elaborate have your stories been?
Eros: How did you meet your best friend?

  • Shakespeare!

    My parents started taking my sister and me to the state's official Shakespeare festival when I was around 12, and we've gone pretty much ever…

  • National celebrations

    Whee--don't you just love when you try to edit a poll question after the fact and then LJ eats the whole thing? I sure do. -_- Anyhow, my dear…

  • Cupcakes?

Oh, I like this, it's a bit different to the usual memes, even if the link between god and question is a bit tenuous!
D'oh, my brain was scrambled by the finale and I wondered where your answers were! I just went and answered them all on my one!

So, I'm going to go for Aphrodite, please :)
Aphrodite: What did you love most about the place you grew up? What about it did you love the least?
Probably the top thing I love is that I still live there. Here. Whatever. I love my room, with its skylight and slanted ceiling. I love the stream down the street, and the fact that we're a dead-end off a dead-end, so it's always quiet. When I was young I loved our pool; now that it's gone, I love the gardens and chicken-pen that have replaced it.

What don't I love? The mosquitoes. And the way our backyard floods for most of the spring, which makes it hard to garden back there.
Where you live sounds so peaceful and beautiful, I'm not surprised you still live there! Have you ever lived anywhere else? It's a shame about the mosquitoes and the flooding, that's always a drawback to living near water isn't it.
Well, it's actually a hazard of living on clay and having a yard that's partway down a long hill and shaped like a very shallow bowl. The stream I mentioned is too far away to affect our water levels at all--it's just that when it rains, we wind up playing drainage basin for all the yards uphill from ours.

I lived one town over until I was not quite seven--which is where my sister lives now, about 5 blocks down from our old house. It's all a bit more suburban than I'd probably pick now, but there's still enough trees and random fields for me to be happy here.

Poseidon: Where is your favorite place to go on a weekday afternoon when you have no plans or obligations?
Okay, so, I'm pretty lame, and the answer is "my bedroom". Or maybe our driveway, in the early spring when the sun warms it up but the air is still cold. Yeah, that's probably the best answer. (I'm such a homebody, it's ridiculous.)

Hephaestus: Do you have a favorite/most interesting Wikipedia page?
What an interesting question! I'm not exactly sure, since I tend to go there only when I'm looking up something specific, but the super-high-resolution art scans they have for Hieronymus Bosch are amazing.
