I just HAD to blog about one of the geekiest things I’ve seen (this week). Boy…I wish I had one :-). It turns out Eisenbrauns is offering a mug that has the story of ‘Ilu’s drinking party in Ugaritic cuneiform with a helpful translation on the other side (for those not sufficiently adept at reading such texts in cuneiform). If anyone gets me for a secret pal this year for Christmas…only $15 will snag this beauty…hint-hint. I can taste the rootbeer floats now….“wtštn…cd šbc.”

If you will be at SBL or ASOR, we are giving them away with $150.00 purchase…James
James,If I was going to be there I would CERTAINLY be picking one up :-). I'm hoping to still get one anyways. This year SBL was not to be for me…though perhaps next year. Thanks for letting me (and my readers know though).
