Born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia

So tomorrow we are off to see Tutankhamun (aka King Tut) in Chicago. I have wanted to see this exhibit the better part of my life, so this is a once in a lifetime (possibly) opportunity for me. I have a BFA in Art History, so this is my thing. I am so passionate about art. And Egypt holds such a lure for me. I cannot even describe the anticipation I have! So, now you’ll know where I am…hanging with the pharoah. And meanwhile…back at the pyramid…I am frantically stitching away on my exchange piece. I am over 50% finished with it, so that is a good thing. I should be able to finish it early next week, so that I can get it sent out by next weekend. And I have been productive with reading, as well. I finished The Matisse Stories on Monday night, and I finished my class book, Spiritual Economics, last night. So, I am free and clear to start The Time Traveler’s Wife. Hurrah! And for those who requested it, I now have a wishlist. There is a link to it on my sidebar (thanks to the hubby). Be warned, though, it is crazy long! Thanks to everyone for the compliments on my curtains, dang those were a pain in the ass to get right. But, they look good now. So, I’m off and should have adventures to share (with pics maybe!) when I get back. Have a great weekend! (And if you’re wondering about the crazy title of this post, that would be from Steve Martin’s song about King Tut…now I can’t get it out of my head.)

I am grateful for museums.

  1. Oooh do you live close to Chicago? I’m so jealous!

    Rosemary, born and raised in Chicago proper yet currently living in the middle of nowhere.

  2. Oh you lucky, lucky person! I would so love to see the Tutankhamun exhibition!! Ancient Egypt is totally my thing too! Can you feel the envy seeping through your monitor? LOL. Have fun, and I want a full report when you get back so I can live vicariously!

  3. I saw an Treasures of Egypt exhibit here late last year while it was in town and it was fabulous. Makes me want to make the trip to Chicago to see this one!

  4. You’ll love it! I’d love to see it too – I love ancient history 🙂

    And have you read the Amelia Peabody mysteries (Elizabeth Peters)?

  5. Thanks for the chuckle, Michelle! Unfortunately now I have Steve Martin stuck in my head…and I don’t think he’s going anywhere anytime soon. Ack! ;o) Have a great time in Chicago!

  6. Oh, Michelle, have a great time with the pharoah!! I’m sure no one would enjoy it more than you and you’ll tell us all about it when you return. 😀

  7. That reminds me that I really should go and see it – the exhibit is about 2 miles from where I live, and I still haven’t been as yet!
