Howdy em hotep --

I can only recount one tale I've told from my days in (Navy) Boot Camp.

I was praying over the food (I had about three minutes to eat, but always prayed).  I was thinking, "okay, this isn't great food.  It's Boot Camp food.  But it's okay food.  I'm sure that God is okay with this food." (And since I was praying to Yinepu, that's Who I had in mind).  I distinctly "heard", in my head, a wry voice say dryly, "God prefers steak."

I almost laughed out loud, which might have gotten me in trouble, but it was a bright moment in an otherwise difficult day.

Em hotep, Bezenwepwy --

Thanks bunches for the pointer -- I'll go check that out.  I appreciate the help!

Edited to add: and sure enough, there they are!

Last edit: If I'm not mistaken (from what Wikipedia says about the temples at Kom Ombo), this does date from the Ptolemaic age; now I'd be curious to see if there's anything earlier...

Howdy em hotep --

I'm wondering if any of the House's linguists (or interested guests) might have access to a list of hieroglyphs that include a symbol for shears.  Many online pages state that scissors were invented in Ancient Egypt, but I find no references in my (admittedly very limited) library, and the best online reference shows a pair of Roman shears from 2nd Century CE Anatolia.  There don't seem to be any likely candidates in the Gardiner sign list (other than glyphs for swords or knives), so I'm wondering if any has list of more uncommon signs that have something on it, or if perhaps some of the scholars studying the New Kingdom inscriptions might have something in your collections.  Thanks in advance!

I won't lecture you overmuch, Phoenix. I, too, am very glad you are alive, but I will say this, next time when you are going to do any sort of emenagoguic herbal nudge to your reproductive system, make sure you have a knowlegeable herbalist supervising you.

Agreed.  I'm not directing this at you, Phoenix, but it always amazes me when people say they don't trust Western Medicine or allopathic physicians, but then are willing to ingest whatever the salesperson at GNC tells them to.  Physicians have 4 years of medical school and then at least 3 years of residency.  You don't even have to have any sort of degree to get a job working retail at GNC.

But I also have to say boo on your doc for not telling you specifically how much you should take.  Telling you a vague "take more than it says on the bottle" is just a recipe for disaster.

I'm glad you're okay.  

+1 on all fronts.  Amazing that a doctor didn't give you specific information -- someone who's gone through medical school and residency should know better.  It's a lesson for all of us: anytime someone gives us vague medication information, ask for absolute specifics in clear, written instructions from someone with some education. And herbs == medication.  Scary!  I am so glad you're okay!
