Conspiracy! I knew it! ;)

We seem to have a major eugenics problem. [...]

Are you insulting Rich's lineage? :shock:

In other news, my dad got bored today and made this:

th_DSCN1327.jpg

I would never have thought of that in a million years. You see, my dad is a good artist. Likes to draw using a pencil and stuff. Shame that he's just a mechanic :|

As for me, I suck at drawing. You should've seen what I got during my art class last year (If it wasn't mandatory for the first half of the year, I wouldn't have taken it...

Oh, and btw I just found my birthday thread sunken down in the overflow (I was busy that day and the day after, which was why I never responded. Heck, I didn't even know it was there by the time I got back to a computer..). For the sake of not bringing a ten day old thread back up to the surface, thanks for the birthday wishes :)

It's off-topic, my friend. That's the point. :-P

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

The Archaeology Project has finished now, all gone, done and dusted. Almost. It will be tomorrow, unfortunately I won't be able to attend the final day because of enrolment for my second year at college. It's not like I'm missing anything of great importance, we'd only be backfilling the remaining open trenches, and I've done enough of that before so nothing new to learn there.

In all, these past five weeks have been epic. Awesome. Epically awesome, even. I've learned so much, met new people of whom I'm now 'Facebooking' (I'm not much of a social networker to be honest), had a great laugh, and spent near enough all of my money, which in any other circumstance would be a heart-breaker.

Moreover, before this excursion, I was sitting on the fence between what course to take for further education - ultimately, my life. Now, though, my sights are solely set on archaeology. Now I finally have a drive in life.

In total I've taken around 600 images, comprising of both trench photos plus those of the places we visited on our days off. So trips to Bolsover Castle and Roche Abbey had me happy-snapping like a photographic maniac. However, that number has dwindled due to the removal of bad pictures or duplicates (a good practice is to snap at least two photos of the trench, and from the four main cardinal points of each trench - a colossal number of images at the end of it all). Speaking of mountainous figures, and returning back to the finance of the project, I've spent approximately £270: that be for travel costs to and fro the project base and Sheffield, camping charges, equipment, and the shed-loads of alcohol and bingo admission charges.

Life is not complete without bingo and beer.

For an excellent five weeks, I am not complaining. Joyous occasions. Also, as I'm back, alive and kicking, you can ask/PM/harass me all you want again.

Indeed?

Ryan of Sheffield, Archeologist. :ZoomToSelection: (< A nice emoticon for the occasion.)

I'm quite happy that you've enjoyed yourself so thoroughly. Good to have you back, though. :)

Hmm... Yeah, I realized, this is probably the most "off-topic" off-topic I´ve ever seen...

I find that funny coming from a user who joined yesterday, though I realize you could have been lurking for years.
