Walk Like an Egyptian
If you are not yet convinced I am the biggest nerd you have ever met, the deal is about to be sealed now and forever more.
I say this because I am squealing like an 10-year old girl at a boy-band concert over Discovery Channel’s The Lost Queen of Egypt. I may even be more excited than over the season opener of Lost. Well, yikes, it’s a toss up. If they both came on the same night I’d have to learn how to use the Picture in Picture on the tv. Or break off my right arm to give to Dish Network to pay for DVR. But anyway, that is not my plight this weekend- thank you Lord! He is so good to me!
Why am I so giddy? Why, oh why, do I dare you to call me after 8 p.m central tomorrow night? The Lost Queen in this program, Hatshepsut, is believed by some Christian/Archaeologist scholars to be Moses’ adopted mother. Yes, ma’am. The Pharaoh’s daughter of Exodus herself!
Don’t look for Zahi Hawass (Egypt’s Antiquities Minister) to tell you this because no self-respecting secular archaeologist will admit the Israelites ever lived in Egypt. However, I intend to watch this program with Christian ears and see if I can make sense of the timing of her reign and the Exodus…I’ve got my 18th Dynasty Chronology all printed and my notepad ready!
So if any of you are in the least bit interested, I’ll tell you all about the show and let you know if I indeed come away believing this was Moses’ mom…Because I’m all Genius like that (not) and I’m certain I can figure out in a biased, one-hour program what researchers have been scratching their heads over for centuries.
That nerd thing I told you about – are you convinced now?
I’ve seen you around bloggityville and have been curious. My man is a minister, too, so I thought I’d come check you out today.
Do you seriously know the name of Egypt’s Antiquities Minister? Or even that there is such a thing as an Antiqutities Minister?! Because yup, that might seal the deal on the nerd status. I’m not ready to make any decisions yet, though… I’m off to read more of your blog. :)
GIRL!!!!! Are you my time? Is it 8:00 pm GA time??
On Discovery Channel???
I CANNOT WAIT!!! I’ll join you in the spirit realm to discern through the spirit if this 1 hour biased program (they usually are always slanted one way) can keep us connecting dots! lol…Since I am so smart like that (jk).
Nerds UNITE!!! Glory to Him! lol
Well, it does sound a little nerdy, but if I had cable I’d probably be there with you so I guess I should say anything. :) Have fun!
Did I tell you I love nerds??? Well since I don’t have your infinite wisdom, can you come back and give us laymen a play by play???
I’ll be watching as well–if I can get my 4 year old to stop calling me from his bedroom every 10 minutes. :)
This is big news… my hubby will also be intrigued to watch and compare.
I have given you an award. Please visit to see what it is!!
Have a blessed Sunday!!
i am going to link to you if that is ok. gotta keep up with my AL siestas!
OK, you’ve got my curiousity up now, so I suppose I know what I’ll be watching tomorrow night! I’m glad you knew about it so that the rest of us could be in on the know, too!
definitely nerd material!!! (and since i’m a librarian, i DEFINITELY know a nerd when i see one!)
you go girl…
and get that Paul paper done too!
You are hardly a nerd in my book! Rather, a kindred spirit! I love biblical archaeology too and this looks like a very interesting program. (In the recent past, I posted an article on the discovery of Herod’s Tomb… a lead from the BAR.) Hot stuff! Hugs, e-Mom :~)
definitely not a nerd — I missed the show but am intrigued after reading your blog…hope you will fill us in with your thoughts on the show!
blessings to you! Jeanette
This is just a test. Couldn’t get my post to go through so trying this first before I retype it all.
Well wouldn’t you know it worked on the test. :0)
OK if your a nerd then I guess that makes me one too! I’ve had my satellite programmed for days in anticipation of this. Course I’ve been a bit giddy to begin with cause my POG girlies are releasing a NEW CD! Holy cow! I’m so excited I can barely breath! Seems I may be a bit more excited bout their release eh?? :0)
YEP! Nerds Unite!
I’m not convinced yet…but you DO make me laugh. lol
Nerd? NOT… I love this stuff… and admitting you are a nerd would be like well, admitting I was a nerd.. I’m not ready to go there…
take great notes, I like your perspective on things
I saw that commercial on Friday and thought, well now, doesn’t that look interesting?!
I’ve always loved all things Egyptian…(and who can beat the Bangles, right?!) Ha ha!
By the way, you are a nerd, but a lovable one!!!
How cool! How very very cool! Do keep us posted on your ideas!!! I’m heavily into archaeology (sp?) and OT studies, but it’s one of those things that is on my list of “things to do before I die.” It’s not something I’ve been able to pursue yet, at least in depth. So do, do keep us posted! I, for one, am all ears.
Your are one beautiful nerd, I love this as well but in good old SA we dont have this just yet maybe 2010, anyway just to say I AM FINE, Freaked out Insecure Neurotic Emotional. I have the mighty Fathers arms around me holding me firm. love you, love always me
