Hey, it was the 1st thing I thought of TOO!

Then, I started trying to remember who the others were, according to mythology. Charon, I remember, is the ferryman of the dead...but I had to look Ceres up, as well as Xena.

Ceres is an old Italian goddess of agriculture, grain, and the love a mother bears for her child.
(Encyclopedia Mythica)

Xena had no mythological or folktale connotation. So, popular culture just scored a Planet!

Wasn't there a post a while ago where Ragnar made fun of ladies in tall leather boots? :-?

Fortunately Xena can make anything look good. =P~

Na. Thats not TOO bad. We should consider ourselves luck its not called bloody "Ronald Mc Donald", or bloody "Britney" or something.

At least "Xena" sounds mythological...sort of.

They're going to rename Xena, so I heard. So we don't have to worry about having a princess warrior planet. :-)
Hey look... I got a new icon....

Oh, I'm Chuck Norris , and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing,
And hang around in bars.

Oh, I'm Chuck Norris , and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

I chop down trees, I wear high heels,
Suspenders and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie
Just like my dear papa.

Ragnar, that's totally unfair to spring on us Canadians without warning. We all know that song is about our Lumberjacks...

That's just mean without the warning....
