|06:10 am - John McCain is a hack of a blacksmith|
I had a dream last night that John McCain was a blacksmith, that his incredibly hot-but-too-young-for-me daughter (who I made up for this dream, apparently) was managing his shop, and that she was selling iron ouroboros rings for $10 each. I bought ten.
Then I found out that he didn't make them, and they were on sale for $5, and I decided that he was a hack of a blacksmith.
His daughter indicated that the plural of "ouroboros" was "ouroborosi," but I wrote on my check that it was "ouroboroses."

I didn't ever think that I would need the plural form of ouroboros for use in a sentence.
In other news...I always thought the Neverending Story's Orin is a blatant makeover of the Ouroboros symbol. Two versus one, you see.
Has anyone read the book? Was there anything about the Orin that seemed significant to the concept of the Ouroboros. I've only seen the movie. hmph.
