THE MUMMY RETURNS: King Tut is coming back to Chicago's Field Museum in 2006 as part of a U.S. tour starting next year. I saw the first exhibit in 1977, but this time I hope to answer questions left hanging, like "How'd he get so funky?" and "Did he do the Monkey?"

NINTENDO is getting into the movie business. I don't know why, since there's much more money in video games.

THE HOLY GRAIL: What is your quest? British codebreakers join the search, but is the Grail elusive or an illusion?

Then again, my book is only read by other crazy people.

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Two of the Texas strip club murders, on videotape and phone conversations between Florida teacher Debra LaFave and the 14-year-old student with whom she allegedly had sex, on audiotape.

SONY IS HARASSING BLOGGER JASON KOTTKE for posting audio and text of Ken Jennings finally losing on Jeopardy. Fortunately, it has not come to a lawsuit... yet. Perhaps clearer minds will prevail.

THE ALGONQUIN HOTEL is trying to bring back the Round Table, but ten thousand dollars for a martini seems a little pricey.

REMEMBER THAT MISSING STOCKPILE OF HIGH EXPLOSIVES IN IRAQ? The Independent, hardly a right-wing paper, may have a partial answer to where they went... and when.

FANS MOCK PLASTIC SURGERY: Liz Hurley seems to have developed "trout pout." Nicollette Sheridan is pitching a skin care product, though many think her face is not kept in a jar by the door.

THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION "is a disaster waiting to happen, according to one NASA flight controller.

BEHIND THE BURKA: a pictorial on The Women of Afghanistan.

ANN ALTHOUSE was a member of the Who fan club before their first album was released in the United States; now, not so much.

CAMERA PHONES will soon have lenses made from a couple of drops of oil and water.

JASON GIAMBI: Credit where it's due -- the S.F. Chronicle broke the story of his grand jury admission that he was on the juice in 2003.

But wait, I am of Korean decent and I am getting old, and use email a lot both at work and at home. Plus I work in the Information Technology field. Go figure.
