Hatshepsut, Pharaoh of Egypt from 1503 B.C.E. to 1482 B.C.E., is described in a compelling Newsweek International article, which announces this exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. (The wikipedia entry on Hatshepsut makes for fascinating reading, too.)
A brief, objective listing of facts: Boston, World Series Champions 2004; Chicago White Sox, in 2005; insect-guided munitions will soon be in production; and now, Windows running on Apple machines! And you require additional signs of an impending apocalypse?
On Monday, Ragnell posted "Fan-What?" at The Written World, in which she examined the term fan- boy/girl. The post and the comments are well worth consulting, and they taught me something about the categorization of some of my own interests and tastes in comics.
Well, I'm off to confront the rest of an adventure-stuffed day, one of which will be my eager purchase of a copy of Spider-Girl #97.
So, this is Melchior del Darién signing off for now, proud to say that I've been fangirling online here since October 2005.
