Anyway, first, I have a few things from rogueclassicism:
-A Foxtrot comic on the Odyssey. I've actually been listening to The Lord of the Rings on CD lately for class (I've read it a few times already), and it's really a different perspective. It's quite enjoyable, but as usual, it always makes me hungry! Those hobbits sure enjoy their food!
-I can't remember if I mentioned it originally, but there was an Amarna Princess that they've found to be a fake.
-There is also follow up on the suspended Latin teacher. Thankfully, she's been reinstated. Suspending over Pompeiian graffiti is just ludicrous.
-Also a bit on a miniseries called Pompeii.
-And, apparently, HBO's Rome is not doing so well in Italy. This surprises me, because I've had quite a few hits from Italy on this blog with searches concerning Rome. But I guess they're hardly representative of the majority.
Speaking of hits, according to sitemeter (which I haven't been using as much as blogpatrol, but which seems to record more hits), I had my 10000th hit just after my previous post! Blogpatrol, however, is still a bit behind.
And since I'm always collecting bad jokes and amusing comics, here are a few:
-From the LiveJournal Classics community: So like Xenophon, goes into the coffeshop, right, and the Barista says to him, "What can I get for you, sir?" and Xenophon goes, "The latte! The latte!"
and: So Julius Caeser walks into a bar, and says "I'd like a martinus." The bartender says, "Oh, you want a martini." Caeser says angrily, "If I wanted a double, I would have told you."
-From the LiveJournal English majors community: a comic on dissertations. There are a few other amusing things posted on that community right now, actually.
Also, I was watching Stargate SG-1 this weekend, and I realized I've been watching the show on and off since about middle school. Daniel Jackson has always been my favourite character. You sometimes forget (particularly, if you haven't watched the original movie recently), but he was an Egyptology professor (with a good mix of Classics--when they get it right--and other mythology/language). It's really no wonder I decided to go into Classics and still pursue (not really academically) my interests in Egyptology and other mythology. I mean, besides the fact that I was also a Xena addict... Yes, even then I was aware of how completely inaccurate these shows are!
And lastly, don't forget this week is BUY A FRIEND A BOOK WEEK! Wohoo!
