I am tired and cranky and not emotionally capable of dealing with the fact that last night's House of Anubis isn't online yet. Did it even air? What if it didn't air? What if the rest of the season just lingers in the nether forever and ever? Even amazon says that the episode is unavailable. Life is so horrible sometimes.

Fucking finally. That was awful.

"House of Cunning." I see no way this episode can live up to seven hours of refreshing the stupid page. )

So, acient Egyptian religion funtimes. From wikipedia:
Ammit (also spelled Ammut or Ahemait) was a female demon in ancient Egyptian religion with a body that was part lion, hippopotamus and crocodile—the three largest "man-eating" animals known to ancient Egyptians. A funerary deity, her titles included "Devourer of the Dead," "Eater of Hearts," and "Great of Death."
Ammit lived near the scales of justice in Duat, the Egyptian underworld. In the Hall of Two Truths, Anubis weighed the heart of a person against the feather of Ma'at, the goddess of truth, which was depicted as an ostrich feather (the feather was often pictured in Ma'at's headdress). If the heart was judged to be not pure, Ammit would devour it, and the person undergoing judgement was not allowed to continue their voyage towards Osiris and immortality. Once Ammit swallowed the heart, the soul was believed to become restless forever; this was called "to die a second time."

Back to the show. )
