The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Eeeewwww.... Shades of boarding school (which was NOTHING like Hogwarts - just warts). The very thought of bread and butter pudding makes me feel nauseated.

Other things I can't eat/look at because of boarding school; Anything curried with Keens curry powder. Sandwiches. Anything made with leeks in it. Anything made with almond essence. Sausages. Corn not on the cob. Donuts. (shudder) Rice pudding... Junket. Flummery. Blancmange. 

And before you think I am a grown-up whiny rich kid - I grew up in the outback where schools were few and far between and when you turned 10 you were packed off the boarding school (airfares subsidised by the government.)

Yeah. Even with the best of intentions, bread pudding sounds horrible. And during the circumstances of war, what was acceptable fare back then, looks like the stuff I'd make from the few things on my cupboard when I am bereft from food in my house. I'd been forced in the past due to dire financial circumstance to "get inventive" with wheat flour, cinnamon and sugar. I've discovered (I think) all of the possible permutations you can get from boiling or baking doughs, slurries or gruel (the three possible states of wheat) with varying proportions of flour to water.

Ah , but think of all the good that came out of it ...
- you learned early on how to be independant, after being left alone in the school for days on end
- you learned how to shut up and sit down
- you learned how to survive hostile situations in which no adult either cared what what going on, nor was willing to intervene as child mobs flung
    the latest human sacrice into the river
- you learned early how to survive with school/office politics

-you learned how to walk home (several hundreds of klicks) after missing the bus (plane) and LIVED!

see, that's what makes Outback Aussies tough....
that and brumbies.
and the scrub bulls.
and the crocs.

aw hell, maybe we should all  just go out to Uluru, hook up with the locals and learn about balance, the dreamtime, and the songs.
that'll make a human outa ya!

Yeah, no crocs where we lived, but every year there was a centipede competition - we won with a 32 inch one and that record was never broken.  Grin

As for boarding school - I don't know anyone who was at boarding school who ever sent their children to boarding school (including me). And it was the adult supervision that was truely horrible at boarding school - never the kids.
