Tutankhamun, his mum and the curvy king

Why the ever so informal title for something I should be treating academically? 
Because this is a personal story, one of mother and son.

News broke today that King Tutankhamun's mother was the legendary beauty, Queen Nefertiti. Looking at the bust of the queen and the death mask of the king, both share decidedly good facial features with marked symmetry (a hallmark of goodlooking-ness).

Months of busyness

With my part-time job and part-time teaching and this and that, I have woefully neglected this delightful gem of a blog. No more! My new year's resolution may be over a month late, but it's never too late to get back to spamming the internets with my mindless musings.

What have I been up to?
Undergraduate teaching to wonderful first years.
An University internship
