It’s hard to figure out how to begin on my thesis when I have no idea how to start. I believe the first step is to go grab my phone and the phone number for E3 and start asking for locations of Natterer’s Bats. If that doesn’t work, I start asking Bevan to go bash some heads for me. Maybe he’ll throw nesting Terns at people. Vicious birds with pointy beaks, I’m avoiding them!!
Right now I have papers to write for that annoying field trip course to the land of vicious biting bugs and tasty foodages. I miss Arneside food, but not Arneside/Roudsea Wood bugs.
Speaking of bugs, cicadas are out back home. I hope everyone is having a great time with them. I kind of miss them, kind of don’t. I was home 4 years ago for them and seeing that many all over EVERYTHING just makes my skin crawl. They give you an idea of what the world would be like if bugs/insects finally decided to just take over the world. *shudder*
This week I will possibly learn how to drive on the “wrong side” of the road. . . we’ll see how that works out. Grant will help me keep to the left so I don’t go around a rotary the wrong way or forget which lane does what, etc. Driving skills FTW!
In 1 week and 3 days Grant and I are heading down to Canterbury to see his mom and brother. This should be a VERY interesting trip. I hope I remember things about Canterbury and Dover and the trains. . . I hope we find good food. We’re staying at the same guest house my dad and I were at 2 years ago. FREAKY! I’m excited though. The weather was stunning in February of 2006, I can only hope that June of 2008 will prove just as nice.
But before that nice weekend trip: I NEED TO START MY BAT SURVEYS!!! *whimper*
