the week past  
Saturday was my, um, many-eth wedding anniversary. I got lovely flowers and gave him a POP of the 60's Batman, He just moved into a new office building and they're being super restrictive about what people can have, including his Batman poster, so now at least he can have a little one in his desk. Plus, I have a zillion POP figs, and it seems only fair that he have at least one!

Sunday we went to the big Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit which is one of the largest collection to travel outside Israel and came with a bunch of other artifacts. Really amazing to be there and see the pieces in person. I'd only seen one before. There were some interesting other artifacts traveling with it, including some things from Masada.

Plus the CA science center had a new model of the wing where the Endeavour will be housed and they're starting to build it at the end of the year. They're getting the last external fuel tank to put on display with it all in upright 'launch' configuration with stairs (and a slide to come down if you want!) around to the t
top. It's going to be amaaazing when that's done.

Writing is going all right for marvel-bang, though I've reached a point where I'm not quite sure how to get to the next point -- the outline basically says "shit goes down and it ends up like this". gee thanks, me, for filling all that in.

Congrats on the anniversary! The exhibition sounds really interesting. I find the whole story and literary discovery of The Dead Sea Scrolls deeply fascinating. A university not far from me has discovered pages from the Koran, dating to just 40 years after the Prophet's death. I'm looking forward to going and seeing those with a similar interest.

ohthat sounds cool, too. I love looking at manuscripts that people wrote a long time ago. It feels different to see them, versus just their things. I appreciate knowing someone else touched it, but something about the writing is more immediate I think.
