wtfomgbbq - sux0rz

 Oh, my GOD.  

The pain in my arms (upper arms, today, right above the elbows, on both sides) is severely interfering with my ability to concentrate, which is a bitch, since I need to read numbers off lists and check for missing forms.  I can't take the day off since I was sick Monday, and am going to be off two days for the Plimoth trip (I don't work Fridays, thank heavens).  Plus my boss wants to meet with me to find out what I've been doing for the past month and a half.

(Note to self:  Do not say "working on stuff on the Internet", since updating your web site and working on your shop is not actually part of your job duties.)

I'll be back posting next Tuesday, hopefully with pictures (if Bob doesn't forget and take the camera to the farm, in which case, I'll steal all of pinkleader's pictures). 

Excuse me; I have to go back to earning a living now.  Have a couple of LOLaurels on me (I may have done the first one before, I don't remember - but you have to have pity on me, because I'm in pain):

Talk to Baroness Eithni of Jararvellir (Northshield), OL. She received her Laurel in research, and 7th cent. Pictish is her area of study. Ask her about her research from when she entered (and won) the Golden Needle challenge with her team (Intermediate Level... from before she was a Laurel) a couple years back. She's also visited all the Pictish stones you can get to by yourself, and photographed them. She's pretty damn awesome. (though I could be biased)

Of course, then you wouldn't have all the fun of finding the research yourself...

Re: "What sucking sound?"
I've actually been in contact with her. I told here what I was doing, what I've read and what books are in progress. She basically said that I was already looking at/reading/researching the places she would have pointed me to and finished with "I don't know what else I could do for you, but please do contact me with any questions or if you feel you would like guidance or feedback in any way." So, I'm guessing that I've ventured into realms not previously explored - as I'm finding by the lack of archaeological evidence or reports on textiles from the area and time period. Dr. Elizabeth Barber warned me of this problem. Oh well.

Anyone have a source for Soay wool?
