    that I think is the contents of your book
    I think you may be right. I'm not too sure as I have yet to really read past the preface of the book.

One day we might even get all the way through it! HaHa

    and Claude, MoonRaven is using an original of some form in that thread too, you could ask her about it, and I think she posted some info somewhere about it.
    I have a copy of the poetic edda I found at a used book store way back when I just need to find it. I'll also have to look into this thread you speak of. ^__^

    There is also an old Havamal thread, but it's so long, and some of the formatting is poor cos its from before the crash. When we finish the Voluspa, I expect we will start the Havamal, and do it again.

    RIP

    I have never been across the way
    Seen the desert and the birds
    You cut your hair short
    Like a shush to an insult
    The world had been yelling
    Since the day you were born
    Revolting with anger
    While it smiled like it was cute
    That everything was shit.
