Ulysses - More of the Same

Well, you get my general gist - time to leave the social media alone for a while and get to grips with this thing.

Done with 'Nausicaa' for now - moving on to 'Circe' now and have to write legitimate argument for that, too.  The main frame is gutted out, just need to furnish it with actual text.  All this catholic guilt!!!!  The plus side is that I posted on the Uni forum that 'Ulysses' is a little-known ancient Greek word for 'Agony'.  Two replied - one said she was glad that she wasn't the only one doing Ulysses, the other said that she is 1,100 words in and totally sleep deprived.  Oh and she is on day 5.  Our own little epics :-)

I have just read through 'Circe' more thoroughly.  I normally pride myself on being open-minded and relatively modern in outlook - all I can say is WTF??? I mean - seriously???  Why am I having such a reaction to it? I can understand why it was banned...but so much of it is so confusing.  So many things going on.  For those not familiar with the text, a summary is HERE.  I truly do not mean to be twee about it - I just find the whole thing disconcerting.

Saying that, I think I am done for the night. Toe feels like it has exploded and I need to sort out my extenuating circumstance form.
