From the Guardian:

"Stephen Hawking, science's brightest star, dies aged 76. The physicist and author of A Brief History of Time has died at his home in Cambridge. His children said: ‘We will miss him for ever’"

I'll miss him forever too. He was one of the mentors of my youth, one bright star in my personal constellation, the one who reconciled me to the wheelchair and inspired the creation of Hagane no, Dino and Saurus.

I'm sad.


Common typo + a thousand words' worth. :D

GNU Terry Pratchett

Two years ago I - we - lost a friend met in the mindscape of books, lost the friendly spirited and most assuredly NOT one-way discussions about life, the universe and, most importantly, human beings and their personhood. I - we - still miss him.

Never forget those who do their duty as citizens, people of the (world-wide) polis.

Castleridge and drama

I like this even if it's a bit too dramatic for me :D

And, speaking of drama, my parody of Romeo and Juliet is glaring at me. *sigh* I have to get back in the rhythm to twist or rewrite pentameters and I don't hve time now. Story of my life. Wonder why no-one seems to realise that Juliet is the "Top/Dom" in their relationship, prolly patriarchal idiocy. Oh Will how I love thee! Thee and my Jane are the best at this, i. e. at slipping revolutionary things under the reader's/public's radar.

And Equinox

Oxford Castle and a bit of rest. Time to write.

Winter Solstice

In Cumbria, lovely photo, this.

Armistice Day

Armistice Day

Grey rainy sky and silence. Remembrance. HATE each and every war.

Long live Arakawa sensei

Remember the third of October 1911

not as poignant as the 25th of May, of course, but I lovelovelove FMA

AND Silver Spoon so very very much.

And always: GNU Terry Pratchett

Late, but too busy to be on time.

I'll never stop loving you, Sir Pterry. (mayherestinpeace) [mayherestinpeas]

Moved again. This is my tiny terrace. :D


Who's Who

Regard this photo. Reconstruction of two species of Homo. Which one is the Neanderthal - I know I know, not arsed to write the proper name, we all know what I'm talking about, don't we? ^_- ) and which one is the Sapiens?

I absolutely LOVE the work done with them.
Vertical mud, incessant rain, earthquakes! Wonderful ways to test my SUV wheelchair to almost destruction on digs, yet I am happy. MPH!
Moved again. All best dig sites are vertical and/or muddy. Vertical mud is my new challenge. Am not lamenting, am actually bragging. XD

Rain bloody fucking rain and even my tractor/wheelchair gets bogged and I can't be on dig. GRRRR! Trying to read a new author, but everyone seems to be so very sodding PROLIX and dead boring and all mental-wanker nowadays so, being all reactionary in literature old-lady-like, am rereading Aphra Behn and finally relaxing a bit. Wanna be on dig, though, Art tells me they found some very interesting things. :(

Been on a fanfic-reading binge, just not to obsess abut our next project and GAAAH! Altough there's a surprisingly high number of well written stories - I mean good characterisation, style, pace, imagery etc. - you can erase the sex scene(s) in 99% of them without affecting the story, plot, style, PACE, chara etc. It's just stuck in without any other sense or reason than to garner readers by porn. Am so bored by porn. *sigh*

Things are never easy for me, but al long last... vacation time!

Time to read all the books I didn't have the time to read before and get back online just to pass the time. Huzzah!


Work on digs almost finished. Will be home in a couple of days, or weeks - still unsure - when I'l finally start doing the deskwork collating data and writing articles and such.

Me and my tank of a wheelchair-for-work (rough terrain being too much for me poor knees) are fine, if tired; Art is thriving; Art's family can DIAF; my family is fine. Also, maybe it's finally stopped raining. *hopes*

See you.

What's up with LJ now!?

Anyway too busy arguing with old superannuated academics about Art's site to be online much. Yesterday had a long long LONG yelling match with a bastard entrenched in XIX century theories about the ancient world and came back exhausted. Still am. Grr.
