Having now been to Egypt, I find myself extrememly interested in Egyptian stuff. There was a new show on the Discovery Channel this past Sunday (airing another million times, I'm sure, for those of you with TiVo) about the new tomb that they just opened in June in the Valley of the Kings.
Their theory is that it's the tomb of King Tut's mom. Someone took great pains to "erase" the names off of the artifacts, so it's not for sure. But that's what they speculate, anyway.
That said, on the show, they were opening this one sarcophagus, and were hoping to find a mummy inside. Instead they found pillows. But they were so excited about the pillows. One woman even exclaimed "Ooooh! Ancient Egyptian Pillows!" That nearly made me snarf the milk I was drinking. Hilarious. And wouldn't you know it, there's an Ancient Egyptian Pillows (well, all linens, actually) SPECIALIST! How do you get that job? Hi, I'm Carmen, and I majored in ancient Egyptian pillows. I'm the EXPERT on ancient Egyptian pillows. Go on. Ask me ANYTHING!
