Hey guys,

Firstly I had a look at the new exhibition called Millenia showing at the Hellenic Museum it is very exciting. I get so excited over the littlest things!! But this is pretty epic, mainly because no one knew it existed up until now, and all I did to find it was to google "Ancient Greek Museums Melbourne" and it came up...I am now very glad that I did! Also excited because the girls and I are going go to Laser Skirmish at Crown, now that's exciting!!!!!!

This post I would like to dedicate to Euripides' play Hippolytus. It won first prize and is based on Theseus' son Hippolytus and his wife Phaedra, Hippolytus' step mother. The play is situated in Troezen at Theseus's palace. The play is one of my favourites, because of the multi-layered and complex themes and relationships that take place. For example the hubris of Hippolytus in angering Aphrodite and not worshipping her, but also the fact that Phaedra is not essentially ashamed of her actions but her thoughts. The ability of self control is also a dominant factor.

Here are some extremely funny cartoons, these make my day!!

That's all.
