    Y’all, srsly– I think we woulda been besties, or rivals. We clearly have the same celebrity crush! This saucy chick had a tattoo of a symbol of St. Michael the Archangel on her inner thigh. Though, maybe it was meant as something to defend her virtue?

    • Sounds like theory #2 to me. That is fascinating! Of all the symbols they could find on an Egyptian princess, St. Michael. In our messed up culture, people are going around sporting tattoos of Egyptian symbols for “stray cat” or “poop” or who knows what, but the actual Egyptians knew how to make a real statement. Neato.

    Today is the Feast Day of the Annunciation — “rejoice, most highly favored daughter!” Imagine being told that you would be the God-bearer, the Theotokos! Here is the Hail Mary from Roman Hurko, a Canadian-Ukrainian composer of sacred music:

    • Thanks for this, ZMike! I’ve been traveling and completely forgot. As I was reading your post and listening to the music, I glanced in the gulf oil spill photo above and the image of the woman jumped out at me. The Virgin of Petroleum? Maybe! LOL! She’s kinda beautiful, actually.
