    I've only had the two jobs, unless you count 'keeping house' for my Dad, and spending a summer looking after my sister when she went to peices following a (temporary) break-up with her fiance. The most fun I had that summer was watching her flatten the poor sod with one punch.

    Anyway, jobs:
    • Assistant Countryside Ranger with East Yorkshire County Council - Summer job cutting grass, cleaning ponds/small lakes, clearing paths, resisting the urge to throw children in said lakes during environmental education.
    • EngD with Surrey County Council and Surrey University - So far lots of reading on civil engineering/road construction and decision analysis.

    Ah, the Faire. A tribite to the age of the plunging neckline. I went a couple weeks ago. I loved all the women in bikinis made from mail. Makes me wish I lived back then.
