20ish Questions

Yay! Yesterday I reached 100 followers!

*breaks out in an Egyptian happy dance*

I'm pretty darn thrilled there's 100 people interested in my ramblings on ancient Egypt and writing. I had a post planned for today, but I'm going to save it for later (code for I want to do more research before I post factual inaccuracies Zahi Hawass* will call me on after HATSHEPSUT is published and he reads my blog archives) and do a little round of 20 Questions. Or really however many questions you all want to post.

So here's your golden opportunity to ask me anything your heart desires. Then next week I'll do my best to answer them.

Have a super fantabulous weekend!

-------------------------


*Hawass is only the super coolest Egyptologist on the face of the planet. One day he's going to give me a private tour of Hatshepsut and Senenmut's tombs. He just doesn't know it yet.

Oooh, Q & A's! Love 'em.

Let's see. My question is: If you could personally interview any author, alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Gary Corby said...

Congratulations Stephanie!

You have a once only opportunity to ask the real Hatsepshut 3 questions. What are they?

Matthew Delman said...

w00t to 100 followers!

Q&A ... hmm ...

What is your favorite ancient Egyptian food?

Katie Ganshert said...

What got you interested in Egypt in the first place?

Congrats on the 100 followers!

Guinevere said...

Congrats on the 100 followers!

When did you start writing and why?

Why did you start a blog?

Sara Tribble said...

Alright! 100 Followers is awesome!

If you could go back in time to see Egypt in its glory--would you? And what would you wanna do first?

Dreamstate said...

Well done! And why wouldn't 100 people be interested in Hatshepsut? She's ubercool.

My questions: you follow a zillion blogs. How do you have the time to get through them all and still post, teach, write and have a family?

And have you always lived in Alaska?

Amalia T. said...

Congratulations!!!!!

uhmmm...question... let me think.

Who are your next favorite historical people, after Egypt? and why?

Bane of Anubis said...

Best part of Alaska? Worst part?

L. T. Host said...

Congrats! :D

This may be easy, but I'm going to request you take out anything to do with Hattie and give me your second-favorite response:

If you had a time machine and could only go one place in time for an hour, where, when, and why would you go?

V. S said...

I love Q&A's!!

When you first wrote your novel did you outline the first draft or did you just write with no outline?

Dominique said...

Very important question: What exactly does an Egyptian Happy Dance look like?

Jemi Fraser said...

Congrats on the 100! That's awesome :)

There are so many good questions above - I'll just wish you a happy weekend!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Ooooo, Gary's question is so cool, I think I'll just expand it. If you could ask the real Senenmut a question, what would it be?
Congrats!

I got to go to one of his talks in Lake Tahoe Nevada a couple of years ago.

Mr Hawass has definetly improved the layman's view of Egyptology. The most memorable moment of his talk was when he told us, his audience, how he was the one to find Tutankhamon's penis! It was under the boy king in the sand tray where he now lies! How 'bout that for a claim to fame?

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Hawass in Lake Tahoe Nevada. He gave a very interesting talk about himself and all of his discoveries, highlighted by the fact that King Tutankhamon's private member** was missing for a number of years and he found it under the teenage king!

**Funny, I tried posting this comment earlier but I guess when I named which private member Tut was missing the "management" thought it was a tad bit too provocative! Geesh... it's just a mummified p**is! *smile*
