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.

I don't know, I log on pretty rarely, so I usually miss things that might be going on, but what kinds of problems have you been having.

And hey, it's nice to hear from you again, even if you are kind of tired.

It keeps getting stuck so I can't post or can't check here and I don't get notifications... except that once in a blue moon it does work. Like now. :P

Sorry am so disappearing, but we're arguing a double thesis and when I say arguing I don't mean 'civilly in a serene academic atmosphere', but 'yelling like the offspring of banshees and fishmongers in the midst of a bloody battle'. So, after each session of what should have been simple preliminary planning, I'm left limp and unable to think, let alone talk or post.

BUT! We will prevail, see if we don't.

I hope you're doing splendidly and things go amazingly well. HUGE HUGZ

I'm doing well enough, I suppose; going to have my wisdom teeth extracted soon, so not looking forward to that so much.

Good luck with your thesis, I hope things get more simple for you in the future.

Oh, poor you. On a hopeful note, sometimes wisdom teeth come out easily enough, it depends on the roots. And the dentist, of course. I really hope you got the right kind of roots and dentist.

As for thesis, it's still in the planning stages. Art made a wonderful discovery in his dig and I want to use that, but Italian academics are a bnch of illiterate bastards to a man - and yeh, all men. BLEGH - so I've decided to bring my offerings back home where at least I know people will listen to me.

Thanks for your wishes and for talking to me. I know quite well I disappear quite rudely and far too often to deserve attention.

Well, the good news is that my wisdom teeth came out nice and easy, and I've recovered quite well since then. The more good news is that I've gotten more chapters of my Teknoman story Flesh and Blood up since we last talked.

The bad news is that I haven't heard from you in a long time, and I'm starting to worry a bit. Are you doing okay?

Good news are GOOD! Happy for you and happy for me re: your fic.

Sorry for disappearance, am devoured alive by RL things. The good news ( ^_- ) is that my marriage is wonderful - din't really expect that - and my doctorate thesis has been accepted and, apparently, is eagerly awaited. Prehistoric (and pre-sapiens) commerce and communication plus a smattering of migration patterns.

The bad news is that it's a TON of work and Italian academes are a bunch of illiterate, antiquated arseholes which means hours of screaming and fighting.

Also I can't really go half-naked as was my wont when it's really hot because my body is a tapestry of scars and I can't bare them to the sun for another two years at least... and it's all HOTSUNHOTHOTHOT and no shade in the dig. WAAAH!

I can't wait to have a little bit of time for reading non-study-related things which will happen in a couple of weeks or so. I'll alternate books and fics - YOURS - lollying on my comfy chair and it'll be HEAVEN!

P.S. Hello from Art. :-D

I'm glad to hear that life's going so well for you, and that your marriage is working out better than you expected. I look forward to hearing - well, reading - what you think of my latest works. I've already started work on the sequel to Meeting Places, and I have some chapters of that posted as well. :D

Tell Art hi for me. ;D

How've things been going for you lately? I don't hear from you much.
