Pharaoh’s Unusual Feminine Appearance Suggests Two Gene Defects Physorg.com

To be honest, I probably stopped caring about this around about the same time that I worked out that no matter how many accurate spells to guard you in your passage into the afterlife The Book of the Dead contained you were still going to be eaten by a crocodile if your heart wasn’t in balance against that feather.

Somehow I can’t seem to quite concentrate on anything at the current time which would be why I’ve been channelling my efforts into domestic tasks this week. It’s not quite reached the level that it did once when a friend rang me at two in the morning only to find that I’d been up scrubbing the shower but I suspect that things are getting pretty close.
