Ezri, too funny!
Well, the (Clash of the Titans') Kraken is from Greek mythology as much as I'm a polar bear.But Anyway.

Yeah, and the Djnn's are from Arabian myths and they looked like Ring Wraiths
and since it's obvious I like Deep Space Nine - Ezri Dax ends up with Dr. Bashir at the end of the series
Alexander Siggid (my he's grown up so fine, and has had some great roles lately - very sexy in Syriana and getting great reviews in Cairo Time).
well.he showed up all pretty (with one line) as Hermes and I said a little too loud - Dr. Bashir!!!!
luckily it was an afternoon show, so there were about 4 people and us at the show.

I love John Wyndham books - The Scent of New Mown Hay one of my faves, the Chyrsalids - great ending - The Children of St. Paul made me gag, no book has ever done that, I loved it.
The Kraken Wakes
The Kraken Wakes is an apocalyptic science fiction novel by John Wyndham, originally published by Michael Joseph in the UK in 1953 and first published in the US in the same year by Ballantine Books under the title Out of the Deeps as a mass market paperback.
The title is a reference to Alfred Tennyson's sonnet The Kraken, which describes a Scandinavian sea monster.
Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
Sounds like the elder god The C'thulu
