one of my coworkers is staying home tom'w to cook indian food for a small army of ppl for the festival of ganesh, the elephant-headed hindu god. my sister-in-law, who spent a year of high school in india, says that ganesh is the god of education, knowledge, and wisdom, so he looks after teachers -- which makes me predisposed to like him. he's not an ass-kicker like, say, shiva. i found out he's also the _destroyer of obstacles_. all in all, a pretty good deity to have in your corner.
