Hurray! I’m almost done my final term in Archaeology.  I’ve finished my last presentation, i just have two papers, and 3 finals left.

This term has been pretty heavy on theory, but I’ve gotten my hand plenty dirty in Paleoethnobotany class – i wish i had more time in that class.

Anyway, back at it … reading about middle range theory and ethnoarchaeological theory … blah blah blah … i just want to play in the dirt.

Jacob Cass has reviewed a new font book.  Personally I love Jacob Cass’ work, and I enjoy his blog – even thought I might not always agree with him, but that’s what makes us human i guess, opinions and stuff.  Anyway … this is a link to his review.

New Fancy Nancy

Yes! you guessed it … a new Fancy Nancy. After working in a book store for a few years you understand and appreciate kids books more and more! The Fancy Nancy series is one of my FAVs. Fancy Nancy, has remained on the New York Times picture book list for ninety-eight weeks, it teaches manners without compromising on wit. I brought almost all of them for my little niece – there’s a lot of them, I don’t want to overwhelm her. I love these books and I want more a more kids to read them!

This is a little about the plot:
“Nancy is tremendously excited about her new babysitter coming over. She has their whole evening planned out, from playing with Marabelle to dressing up in fancy ensembles. But things don’t turn out quite as Nancy had planned!”

It is going to make projects so smooth!  Man – oh – man … i wish I could play around with it.  Even for personal stuff – like planning my wedding – it would make organizing and getting ideas – shit … i can’t wait.  I wish I could get an invite, but it’s only for ‘real industy’ people just yet … ah well.

Here are some screen shots to get you wanting more.

Well … isn’t it funny – how when things are bad … they just get worse. I just got laid off. Weird … I loved my job … i Loved the company; but maybe this is a blessing – now I can move to Ireland with Naomi, buy that hotel in Florence and be an Anthropologist in Brazil … hmmmm … I wonder what I’ll do first ….

It’s funny how everything I do – I do it wrong … and whatever I say it’s taken the wrong way.
I need to cry – but it’s like the tears are stuck somewhere inside me.
