Geeky Ugaritic Mug

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...."wtš šbc."

  2. 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).


Your comments and questions are always appreciated. :-)
