My page visits seem to have jumped quite a lot in the past day or so, which is very nice to see. Hi!
I'm reasonably certain a lot of that is thanks to Samurai Knitter who also blogs about knitting and science (her favorite flavor is botany) and history and other fun stuff in a lovely, snarky manner. Also, she has a cat named Sekhmet and a daughter likely to become a mad scientist in the near future, so really, staying on her good side before they (the cat and daughter) take over the world is probably a good idea.
One of my Egyptological buddies (in fact we started grad school together lo these many years ago) gave me the transliteration for "Suck it, old man" - snqy s i iAw. Glad to see all those years of hard work paid off. I genuinely appreciate him saving me the effort of trying to figure it out myself. I firmly maintain that the weird MRI spots on my brain are located directly over the Egyptian language storage centers. :P
I'm contemplating trying to do some treatments of Egyptian history in the same way as the Tut stuff on a semi-regular basis. I had a lot of fun writing these past posts without having to worry about appropriate tone and footnotes and crap. So, we'll see where that goes. Requests are welcome. As it is, I may well just start up with the Predynastic and work forward.
