Well. before we go any futher, there are a few things you should know about me. Firstly, I'm great at giving gifts, and as a result, it so happens that I have an entire city named after me - and not just any city - but the freaking cradle of western civilization. Which, of course, is as it should be. I had my eye on that little town for a long time, but then my stupid uncle (such a copycat) decides he wants to be the patron of the city's people, so he tried to bribe them by creating a great a spring of water; but of course, he's an idiot, so he makes it saltwater, which is his favorite thing, but what were those poor mortals supposed to do with that? I, on the other hand, gave them the gift that keeps on giving - the olive tree! With this one little twig that I planted in their midst, they received food, oil, wood, and shade. Plus, it's pretty. So here's one just for you. I've made these in the colors that those nice people, my adoring fans, were famous for using to create art that celebrated my wisdom and glory.

The other thing you should know is that it's just dumb to turn down my gifts. Remember that guy, Paris? I offered him wisdom and victory, but nooooo, he wants some hot model-type chick instead. So what happens? Ten years of war, everyone dying and starving - what a mess. And of course he ends up dead as a doornail. I had to laugh. So the moral of this story is you should just let me do the thinking for both of us, because I've been at this for a long time, and I'm really good at it. Take what I give you and you might just spawn a great civilization. Turn it down, and you'll probably end up with an arrow in your chest and your girlfriend gallavanting off with some other guy. Just a word to the wise.

So. In case you haven't figured it out already (and if not, what do I have to do? hit you over the head?), today I am speaking to you as Athena, also known as "Minerva", the Goddess of Wisdom and Victory, as well as Crafts, and many more things. And yes, this is a plug for today's Blogliner. I sort of figured I was best suited to be Athena, but then I took the Quizzilla's Which of the Greek Gods are You? and Paleothea's Which Greek Goddess are You?, and they both came up "Athena". Fun.
