i feel like there is a major and a minor arcana in terms of relationships, romantic and not.

interesting thought: going to the mall is considered a fairly dumb/vacuous/valley girl thing to do, but the idea of the greecian agora (classic consultant: am i using the right word?) for shopping/social interaction is seen of as pretty nifty keen/something that most people i know would do if given the opportunity to go back in the day. soso, as 'going to the mall' is kind of culturally construed for shopping and people prowling, and the agora is seen as somewhat of the same, except with the addition of discussion, perhaps, where does the mallsRlame, but ancient greece is gr8 argument come from?
re: discussion, do we really have faith in ancient people have distinguished, enlightened, truth-seeking conversations all the time, or is it more likely they were just taking about who looked best in their togas?
this is inarticulate/dumb sounding, duh. but the thought is ill-formed/silly, though still curious.

also, this is the only song i listen to anymore:

roflrofl, <3


  1. The political assemblies were also located in grecian agoras, and sometimes philosophical schools. The agora originally was solely a political space; commerce was only an after-thought. Temples were often in/around the agora as well. Somewhat different from malls, eh?

  2. *sigh* guess so.
    and here i thought i'd come upon something kind of cool/insightful/harshly critiquing of our generation. bummer :-P
