SS Saturday

My SIF, Fin, tagged SS for this post.

The rules are:

Either (1) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos OR (2) post 10 facts about yourself with no photos, OR (3) post a childhood picture of yourself."

We opt for the second option:

1. SS is an archaeologist. She has always wanted to be one since she was a little girl. Now that she is one, she is thoroughly enjoying it.
2. Despite the fact that she prefers the cold to the heat, she has worked in hot places – from the desert in Iran to the steamy jungle of Cambodia.
Here she is, jumping across the moat of Angkor Thom. Do you think she could clear it without getting wet?

3. Like kitties, she is a night person, preferring to stay up working and doing things at night and sleep in the morning. This is not to say she can’t get up at 4.30am for a 5 am start when she is working in the field.
4. She likes music and does play some instruments, badly. I scamp when she starts playing.
5. She reads in a few languages but can only speak a couple fluently. Not that it bothers her too much. Her philosophy is: I know what I am talking about, it’s their problem if they don’t. However, wherever she goes the locals don’t seem to mind and quite appreciate her effort, except the French.
6. She can’t sew – she was asked to chose Latin instead of needlework when she was at school because she only finished one piece of work in the whole year. The only reason she didn’t fail was that that piece won a prize in the show.
7. She is untidy and lives in a relative mess where she said she could find her things. When everything is put away, she can’t find them.

Please considered yourself tagged if you want to play. It's good to hear about the typists behind the blogs.

BTW, this is our 300th post!

That is a very interesting occupation that SS has. Our mum is a night person too. She never goes to bed before 1.30am.
Concats on 300 posts.

Concats to the 300th post!
It's wonderful that SS has had a dream since she was a child and it has come true. Yay! Does she specialise in a special period? She could pop over and look around for Roman stuff in Cologne. BTW, our neighbour is an archeologist too.
P.S.: It's 2:07am, so we guess mom qualifies as a night person too.

We think it's cool that SS is an archeologist. This has been so wonderful to find out about the humans behind the cats! I'm making my mom do something about this next week.

Oh SS that was great! And 300 Posts! Wow that is awesome!!

It's so great that SS knew what she wanted to be and made it happen. It took Mom a long time to figure out.

Forever Foster said...

Happy 300th post! It sounds like SS has a wonderful career. What exciting places she has been!

Our mum is also a night person. It's easier to think when the world is quieter.

The Island Cats said...

Your SS has a cool job! She gets to visit the most interesting places! Our mom is doing this meme today too!

Congrats on your 300th post!

The Kitty Krew said...

Ohh, those were neat! Being an archaeologist is one of those "how cool is that" kind of things, our Mommy thinks. And that's funny about the one sewing piece winning an award.

Congrats on 300 posts!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew
