So today in Latin class we were reading a sample comparison essay of Fama and Iris. Allow me to quote this pretty great bit from it.

"Fama is covered with eyes, tongues, ears, and mouths. Iris can only be assumed to have a normal supply of these things."

BECAUSE THIS WON’T STOP HAPPENING IN THE PASSAGE WE’RE TRANSLATING. 
THANKS A LOT, VERGIL. THANKS A LOT.

Made this because this happens ALL THE TIME
WHY, VERGIL, WHY MUST YOU DO THIS
(Haven’t updated in a while since there’s no school and therefore no Aeneid translating! But we will be back to updating once school starts again!)

ANNNNNNNNNND, WE’RE BACK TO THE AENEID. 
Since we last left off, the Trojans have made themselves throughly comfortable in Dido’s kingdom, while she continues to creep on Aeneas. 
In the meantime, the goddesses Venus and Juno are arguing about who gets to take the Trojans as their own people (‘cause they’re important ‘cause they found Rome ‘cause apparently that’s totally hipster for Olympus).
The two then begin to plot how Aeneas and Dido will get trapped in a cave together, where they will have no choice but to fulfill Vergil’s fanservice standards (which is awfully similar to the friend-fiction Dido wrote the night before). Meanwhile, Juno is creating a storm to ensure that the two stay inside the cave until the fanservice actually occurs.
AND THEN THE TROJANS DISCOVER AMERICA.

Hang on, we’re just about to go back to the Aeneid.
But until then, why don’t you have some more sketches from Good Omens?
Do you want to read it yet? Do you?
Oh, and at the bottom, we have Nicholas Cage and the brilliant movie, Face/Off.

Okay, so this time there’s actually something relevant to the Latin language and Vergil. 
But only a bit. 
As you can (maybe) see, we have Crowley’s flying Bentley (from Good Omens) in the upper margin, followed by “the stars advising sleep.” 
Then in the Aeneid, Dido suddenly decides that she lieks Aeneas and instantaneously changes into “Pedo-Dido.” Santa-Dido later appears when she takes Aeneas’ son into her lap (presumably to ask him what he wants for Saturnalia that year).

AND NOW THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING RELATED TO THE AENEID. ONLY GOOD OMENS. DO YOU KNOW WHY, BOYS AND GIRLS?

Because your face.

OKAY THEN. My name is Katie, and this time I’ll be the one uploading the shnanigans for your viewing pleasure since I finally figured out how to work mah scanner.
IN THIS CORNER (more specifically, the right-hand margin), we have rantings about Toddlers and Tiaras as well as inspirational quotes from said show. IN THE OTHER CORNER, we have miscellaneous other rantings about lisps and characters with lisps. And at the bottom, there’s a note concerning our ardent yearning for Skyrim.
Oh yeah, and we actually have something related to the translation of that day in the middle. There was a city mentioned that sounded too close to “salami” for it not to be a simple coincidence.
