I think my next expedition interstate will be to the upcoming Tutankhamun exhibit at the Melbourne Museum and I will be timing the visit on weekdays to avoid the crowds (but it'll probably be crowded anyway because, hey, it's King Tut). I got to thinking about how it's been nearly 10 years since my high school trip to Egypt- not completely sure I'd ever go back (certainly not alone), but it'd be nice to see some of the pieces I saw in the Cairo's Antiquities Museum again.
In other news, I've become quite addicted to Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series of books. Saw quite a few when I was in Abbeys bookshop in Sydney and honestly wanted to buy all of them, but I restrained myself to 3 and will probably pick up the others cheaper from Fishpond or Amazon UK (who are now offering free super saver shipping to Australia, yay!).
My next semester of librarian study with CSU starts tomorrow- this semester I face the difficulties of metadata and how to do a group assignment through distance learning, ugh.
