Tell me again, why do I need one of these things?

It feels like forever since I posted and I don't want people to worry…

vecchio: hurty
It feels like forever since I posted and I don't want people to worry or anything.

If that sentence doesn't tell you, I am all anxious and twitchy today. Also, besides having a bad head and being woken up by a very appologetic postie was the girl-nest-door's lego delivery, I have had a headache and done f-all. I am feeling very isolated at the moment, not all that surprising since I haven't been on line and talking to anybody. *hugs commentees and sends them manatees in lieu*

What about some more awesome holiday stuff? (I went to Turkey, I came back with a lot of cheese)

*Lake Bafa; you can't even try to photograph it, it's so huge. Standing on the terrace of a road-side restaurant / rest stop / olive-product-selling operation, it was all around you. It was like looking into infinity, the mountains fading into the background in progressively lighter shades of blue. Possibly-a-comerants tried to fish as the entire sparrow population flocked down to the tables. They do not like apple. The first time, we were heading to Ephesus (the tip? start driving very early to avoid the rush... Ephesus is always packed, but that is not the point, stop and have breakfast). Breakfast was great (and Turkish) with toast, tomatoes,cucumber, fried eggs and the most awesome cheese on the planet; it's all crumbly and you can did your buttered toast in it. And all the apple tea you can drink. Apple tea is awesome.

*The second time we passed by (and confused the guys with the breakfast even more, they already had got recognised by bbd who sprouted pertinent comments about whatever they told him last time), we were on our way to Didyma and Prienne (sorry, many apologies, spelling not working today). The cotton fields were amazing, they just went on forever. Also, the_dosk learnt to be careful what you order, but ate it anyway.

*Okay, I'm leaving archaeological porn until I have pictures. The hill house at Ephesus has to be seen to believe and, well, lots of nice archaeology.
  • I shall be excited to see the pictures!
    • There is so much awesome. Painted wall plaster, huge chunks of archaeology, and some scarily large columns. That misses out a lot, but there's so much of it, it's not lining up in my head/mouth/fingers. I think I have an archaeology jam.


  • Head hurty Bs makes a PapaJoe frowny.

    Manatees make everything better.

    Beaker for YOU:


    • I was actually disappointed when things started going wrong!

      Beaker is so cute, and to the power six, yeah...

      Sad to see that the critics (Slater and Wardolf?) have discovered the internets.

      I quite like manatees, I had been hoping to swim tonight, but events seem to have conspired.


      • Statler and Waldorf seem to be watching everything from the LIBRARY tho.. which just makes me too happy.

        • Well, yes. I couldn't fix that in my head for a bit; it's for all those introductions... (I think)
  • I'm sorry you are not feeling well. I wish you felt great and were writing a lot instead. *is selfish and admits it*

    And I await archaeology porn with GREAT interest! I am so jealous, Turkey is just amazing, and I've never been. *sighhh*

    Feel better soon!

    • The headaches are pretty much their own person, something of a unwanted guest, and are kind of hard to unseat even with enough pharmacuticals to get a turtle stoned. (I have a proper specialist etc)

      The archaeology porn is just really worth it. That and covered in lizards, improvised game boards, and ottoman vandalism (pretty tulips with cartouches). It is BIG.

      I'll try with the feeling better, hopefully I am getting out tomorrow to play games with my own archaeologists.
  • That lake sounds amazing.

    it was all around you. It was like looking into infinity, the mountains fading into the background in progressively lighter shades of blue. Possibly-a-comerants tried to fish as the entire sparrow population flocked down to the tables

    That is a gorgeous description too, btw.
    • It's just huge, horizon skimming if the mountains didn't get in the way. You can drive past little islands with ruins only visited by birds. It's the feeling I can't convey, that loose and almost sleepy feeling as you drift weightless looking out to an inland sea.
