I win at gas. I might actually get this framed, seeing as how it's probably the last time I'll ever see gas under $3.00/gal. :-)

Expect gas prices to get even lower. You can't rise prices when there is a collapsing economy :?

Speaking of failing economies, I am moving in with Ed over in Australia. See ya'! :D

Well I don't need a depression to blame America for all my troubles... Ow, my toe! Damn you, Arkansas! Lousy coursework... Michigan!

I wouldn't call myself anti-American in a serious way, but one does have to wonder where a decade of mis-management of the world's only remaining Western superpower has got the world to... And the damn Californian kids with their stereotypes: I was talking to a kid from LA who kept trying to tell me that I subsist on tea, crumpets and roast beef, but she really did fulfil every Californian rich-kid stereotype imaginable: lives in Beverly Hills, does nothing but shop, eats goji berries... She wanted to go to "Eng-g-g-l-a-a-nd" to buy "a Burberry coat a day", and to drink tea... I told her to fly in via Luton Airport, in the charming village of Luton, where the people are friendly, and you can go out and talk to the hooded youths, who will happily help you get to any place in this delightful neighbourhood...

before in the Rants[/url],":2p0hrs3m]Rant:


On the up-side, some good things should just be around the corner. That corner which is fastly approaching and only one week away.

That day arrived yesterday. I am once again archaeologing* in Bolsterstone again, this time excavating the site of an old smithy which was abandoned in 1947 and eventually demolished in 1958.

I could only join yesterday due to college commitments, however during the past week it has been active, what was once thought a building of only one construction phase - i.e. built all in one job-lot - is actually turning out to be three phases at the least. Thus far, the earliest datable evidence found (clay pipes and unique sherds** of local pottery) places construction at around the 18th Century. Give or take without proper scientific analysis as of yet.

It's marvellous to be digging again.

I won't mention photographs because I'm yet to upload the ones from the last Bolsterstone dig and the Brodsworth excursion.

*yes, this term is a fabricated affixation.

**no, this is not a typo. Archaeologically speaking, there is a difference between 'sherd' and 'shard', with the former taking precedence when describing broken pieces of pot and suchlike.

I think we all know which grade I'd get for that . . . F :D

Anyway, I learnt a very important thing in school today:

Email sent to Zurich Financial Services - now all I have to wait for is the reply, that is if I get one. :(

Still, at least I managed to torture my IT Teacher again, he says I've got "problems". :lol::lol:

This is just one of the four I told him in a 50 minute period:

Do you mean the forum was offline, again?

I'm messing about with the good old under - rated Windows Movie Maker to make an "extended piece." In other words, I'm merging, mixing, fading one single track on a time line to get a longer version. :)

My brother's marching band got Gold at Regionals! This means they're going on to Semi-State- the band's first time out of regionals in Decades!



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.
