So I'm stuck here with a sleeping sick baby on my shoulder, that means it's time for content-free blog content!

From a conversation between me and elocinnuala this morning:

You know you live in a pagan household when:

There are ritual athames everywhere, which are frequently used to open packages.
The fairies get a more thought-out breakfast than you do
There are more god images around than photographs of your family
You have (at least) one bookshelf devoted to divination tools
Your living room is decorated to match the elemental quarters

Anyone care to add to the list?

Visitors are known to say "my, that's a nice, um...altar you have there".
The Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormon missionaries mysteriously never noticed your home.
The cats get their own altar.
Your spice cabinet makes cooks jealous.

Instead of pictures ...
you have sharp pointy things on your walls.

That "time of the month" is viewed as a prime chance to collect "supplies." =)

There are two or more clocks in the house, each with a different time set

I thought that was just a sign that you were in a house...or an office...or anywhere where every friggin appliance comes with its own clock.

When people say "bless-you", they are qualified.

Children say things like "Jesus? Who is that?"

Hollywood movies with scary occult themes are kept with comedy.

Several completely different "Book of Shaddows", each hand written.

Several remarkably simular "dream journals", each by a different author who does not allow anyone else to read it.

Having your own altar is a higher priority than having your own desk.

Your housemates leave your kitchen knives alone, because they understand that they are your magickal tools.

You can "name that incense" within 10 seconds of walking through the door.

You don't give your children all of their birthday presents at the bowling alley in front of the classmates because their parents might get upset about the athame and incense.

You wonder how best to give your children enough background in Bible stories so that they will understand their high school and college literature class assignments without confusing the hell out of them.

You have to talk to your kids about not making snide remarks about Christians.

You get to explain to your kid's kindergarten teacher what he meant when he built a "rainbow wand, just like my dad's" out of legos in class.

You get to have a talk with the people at the daycare about why they shouldn't scold your child for saying that you are a witch.

The day care and kindergarten teachers marvel at how well your child draws stars.

You notice a new crayon drawing of a pentagram taped to the ceiling over your child's bunk bed and ask them what they are warding against.

I love that one!
