The Reverend Something or Other

I've seen you about in any number of threads, so I thought perhaps I'd finally intro myself. smiley - smiley

Anywhere except the hootoo, I'm known as Nick. And what there is of me is pretty generally covered in my PS bit.

Also from there, the Friends listing, you'll probably note that we have a number of friends in common as well.

Anyway, "hi" from here, where-ever that may be, ....

smiley - biggrin Hi from here to there.

“Occasionally find myself less correct than I’d like to be”

smiley - biggrin Comes from frequently being assumed the "master technician" shortly after arriving in any new shop while military. For some reason, even the bosses always quickly assumed me always right, and so I could never disappoint them, eh?

From a few passing thread-references, I take it you are also involved in some form of theatre? Oz, nearly-believeably chain-mail, etc?

Certainly not! After all if you’ve managed to create an air of knowledge and authority there’s no point in disillusioning any boss that comes to you for help. smiley - laugh

Not quite theatre, just an annual Son et Lumier style historical production. It’s great fun, and gives me the chance to run around hitting blokes with swords which is fun; and there’s the free firework display every night the production is on. It makes for a hectic couple of months, but I’ve made some great friends whilst I’ve been involved. I’ve done four of them now, in different sites around Chepstow.

It does indeed sound like fun, especially if you enjoy the opportunity to poke, prod and beat chaps with swords. smiley - evilgrin I have a friend who is very avidly into war re-enactments here in Canada and a few of the northern states. Late 1800's, heavy serge french uniforms, muzzle-loading flint-locks, the works. He absolutely glows after a week-end of that.

I am quite familiar with a village of Chepstow, but being in Ontario, it's almost likely not the same one, eh? smiley - laugh

Does your friend own a nice big hat with a plumed feather in it? smiley - bigeyes I've always fancied owning one of those.

smiley - erm No, it's not the same one. I bet it doesn't have it's own Norman castle at any rate. smiley - rofl Home in near Chepstow, south Wales.

The Reverend Something or Other

smiley - erm I don't recall the exact cut of the uniforms, but I do think I would recall a flourishing plume. smiley - laugh

And our Chepstow doesn't have a castle, but there is the fat old pig-farmer, Norman. Does he count? smiley - silly

Mmm, it’s rather a notable feature. I’ve always likes the cut of the Caviler (and slightly later) plumed hats – very dashing.

smiley - laugh Well, it might, but does he speak ‘yokel’?

Trust me, nearly everyone I knew growing up were yokels, uh-yup, uh-huh...

How's life with you, lady? Still annoyingly slow?

Ohh things are rattling along ok here atm. My other half has come into work with me today so with the company time is passing slightly faster than usual for an August day. I'm having a few days off next week as well, which will give me chance for a bit of a break before the students return.

How're things with you? Good weekend and all I trust.

The Reverend Something or Other

Spent far more money that we should have, and then stayed generally lazy all week-end. So yup, a pretty nice one at that. And with clear, cooler weather, it was a real treat.

So, what's your other half do for a living? Or is it one of those national secret type of thingies? smiley - sillysmiley - biggrin

Cool weather - there's a loverly thought. It's horribly muggy down here atm.

He's about to start work as a Chemistry teacher in September.

The Reverend Something or Other

Ahhh, one of my favorite subjects in school. Along with physics and any of the advanced maths. Maybe that's why I settled into electronics so readily. Never could wrap my head around languages or history/ geography stuff. Names, dates, never would stick, and yet I recall every numerical formula I ever met. smiley - weird

smiley - yikes NOOOOO!!!! Another mad smiley - scientist running about the place. I really can't understand the attraction, formulae are there to confuse and irritate people, they don't actually mean anything to normal people!!

On the other hand an exciting history lesson helps us understand where we are today, how we got there, and provides us with warnings about the future. Much more sensible. smiley - tongueout

To each their own tastes, eh? It's just something about the esoteric that has always fascinated me. Well, until I met girls, then ... smiley - drool

Then you had to stop doing maths and start on the more waffly subjects....?

Post 17

The Reverend Something or Other

Oh I don't know. There can be a lot of math's involved in appreciating shapes, curves and other interesting geometric bits. smiley - evilgrin

smiley - laugh And I suppose the science lessons came in useful for appreciating the finer points of skin tone and black eyes. smiley - winkeye

And the easing of facial stings, bruises, etc. Science can be helpful. smiley - laugh

Mmm, some of them were a lot of fun but I didn't enjoy the equations or disections for that matter.
