Pictures of Pietra-Men and You-u-u

It's been a while since there was a picture, so I dug something up:
I believe it's called "Pietra di Palermo" and it's some ancient Egyptian thing they found in Italy. Or something. I took a picture of the explanation as well, if you're super curious or fell on my page because you're writing a paper on ancient Egyptian ruins in Sicily, just scroll down and you hit pay dirt without having to fly to Palermo yourself.

Thanks to the glass, you couldn't actually take a picture of it head-on unless you really just wanted a picture of you with a camera in front of your face. I was more liking the way I could get a pic. of MJ on the sly.

We were having a ball at that museum. I was learning how to use Andy's camera, it was pouring rain outside, it was our first official day in Sicily, and we were having many heart-to-hearts and just cracking each other up.

I have a video of her explaining a copy of the copy of a statue with Laocoon & his sons being killed by serpents, and I can totally see how she would have made a fantastic art history teacher...except for the bit where she sighs and then compares the artist to her son...you know, my X. She caught herself and I told her I'd erase that bit later, you know, when the compilation DVD was made, or something....

Which brings up some guilt. I told her I really would compile all of our pictures and simply haven't. Hi, it's coming up on a year since the trip...The idea of sitting in front of a computer actually working, when like I'm not getting paid? Well, yeah, not so hot on that when there are things like books to be read and stuff...

I am soooo lazy...

I like that picture!

When my grandma died (almost 20 years ago), I inherited her cookbooks and recipes. I told the family that I'd compile a cookbook. Do you think I did it? :)
