Saturday Trivia: Lifestyle

Interactive dinner parties (
A new interactive comedy mystery in Arizona: "The scene is set in 1925 Scotland at Castle MacLaird, where Lord MacLaird is hosting a dinner party to show off an ancient sarcophagus and mummy he has brought back from an expedition in Egypt. It was around the same time that two Englishmen, Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter, found King Tutankhamun's tomb. The mummy happens to be King Tut's long lost brother. Things, however, become less celebratory when an altercation occurs between the Lord and a guest, Nigel Carrington, over the ownership of the mummy. Carrington is found dead later, and the guests have to figure out the cause."

Pets forever:
"More and more options are available these days for pet owners who want to build memorials to their beloved animals after they die. Funeral homes that are exclusively for people's pets exist, and some companies specialize in building gravestones for pets when they're buried. One Utah company offers a method that probably hasn't entered the minds of most pet owners: mummification."
With a photograph infinitely more eerie than anything that the ancient Egyptians ever produced.

Interior Decorating: (
"With the popularity of The Quest for Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, can a surge in popularity for Egyptian-themed decor be far behind? While it may be a stretch to envision a large-scale pyramid or sarcophagus in our home design, adding an element of ancient Egypt may be the fix for a room lacking personality."
