Leonardo is all Over

Assignment... *insert Gordon Ramsey back hand slap* ...DONE!

However, as it's not due until Friday week I'm not going to send it off yet. There's a BBC4 program on tomorrow night called Inside the Medieval Mind, which may have a startling insight / useful bibliography-expanding quote that I could use. Perhaps something fresh will come to me as I stare out of train windows on Friday and Monday. It would be rather annoying to submit it and then have a moment of revalation. If nothing is revealed to me, then I'm happy to submit what I have and happily turn my back on him once and for all.

I'll have a couple of weeks then before Archaeology: The Science of Investiagtion starts (unless the books arrive early) and I can read some of those yummy Earth Sciencey books I have.

Is it 2009 yet?

I want to start S369. It's not that I dislike Leonardo himself, I just dislike the TMAs, my tutor, the conference, the fact that it isn't what I hoped it would be... I did spend a little time on the conferences today, hoping to glean some valuable insights for the TMA, but no. Just lots of people moaning the same complaints that I have. The ALs barely comment on the discussions. Bizarre when I think back to the Planets short course when they were all over the place, especially David "superstar" Rothery. Fuck the Arts.

Have decided not to bother with Ancient and Medieval Cities and today signed up to Archaeology: the Science of Investigation, which is a named course on the GeoScience degree. How bad can it be?

I have discovered OpenLearn though. That means I can look at part of SXR339s course text. Dodgy Arts course v Remnants of Archaean crust? No contest!

Suppose I should get the TMA done though. Meh.
