When the river runs red

There actually is a Goddess of Menstruation in Egypt.
WOW.

Sekhmet was created by Ra to kill off the humans who were conspiring against him. After almost wiping out mankind, Ra bade her to stop but she could not as her bloodlust was unquenchable. Ra then tricked her into drinking from the Nile by turning in Red. As she gulped down water from the Blood red river, he turned it into beer which intoxicated her and sent her into a deep sleep. When she woke up, she had no recollection of what had happen. She became a benevolent goddess then.

I still cant get over the fact that she is a goddess of periods. I wonder if pms counts. Hahaha..

Therapeutic Ramblings
A dash of Disney, a sprinkle of pop punk, lashings of sweet treats, a pinch of superheroes, bundles of laughter and a tinge of crankyness.
All wrapped up in a pretty package that resembles the Cookie Monster.
Also self proclaimed Princess of Le Cupcake Kingdom

To finally figure out what I'm meant to do. To travel the world. To eat anything without gaining ungodly amounts of weight. To get my happily ever after. :)
