Friday afternoon: As I've said in another post, Pele announced her presence in my life.
Saturday morning: My clock was mysteriously right on time, all of a sudden.
Saturday evening: Loki leapt into my life. (I tried asking him to go away, but I think my efforts were counter-productive.)
Sunday morning: My clock was about an hour and a half late.
Sunday afternoon: I thought about changing the batteries, but decided against that course of action. So I simply reset the clock to the proper time.
This evening: It's still telling the proper time, and doesn't seem to need new batteries.
Make of this what you will. I know what I think. Ah - the joys that come of new deities jumping into one's life! I hope no more show up. If any do, I might begin having trouble keeping track of them! Not that I seem to have any say about whether new deities show up or not...
