Myth and match -

"The Vestales"
digital collage by Mick Mather
"O Vesta, if I have always brought pure hands
to your secret services,

make it so now that with this sieve
I shall be able to draw water from the Tiber
and bring it to Your temple"
- Tuccia in Valerius Maximus

Triplets, you demand, sire?

One is not enough, not two for you.

Thy temple is well watered.

(hmm, not exactly great poetry, but I had to try some!)

I hope they give you a thumbs up...slightly well fed virgins, I say.

I can just see it now on NBC - "Biggest Loser - Vestal Virgin Edition" or on ABC - "Dancing with the Vestal Virgins."

Reality, baby.

Wake me up when the show comes on ... right after the rerun of "The Brady Girls Get Married" TV Movie of the Week I bet.
