Getting down to the wire, here, with this #$%^&* trip. It's cost me way-y-y too much to be worth it.

So, of course, my computer's self-destructing and the clutch burned out of my car.

Oh, and you haven't LIVED until you've given CPR to someone who's obviously already long-passed..

From the WTF Files:

This morning, not one, but TWO ppl talking Merc/Gemini/Apollo with me. You never know.

a) Andy at work, whom I've always liked. Taurus on the edge of Gemini. He was helping me lug this gigantic laundry bag, and the conversation just..what..from his enormous collection of model trains, from all eras and memorabilia - the pictures! - and his experience actually driving them and being impressed (?) that I knew about Ravenglass, UK, lol - to his Civil War reenactment experience and battlefield ghosts of Gettysburg. We talked for half an hour, LOL - and then I said, "Well, MY area of expertise is early manned space - Mercury/Gemini/Apollo.." And he TRIED to 'quiz' me..asking about Wernher Von Braun and Project Paperclip and DERP, WHAT WAS THE TYPE OF ROCKET THE MERCURY PROGRAM USED, AND WHAT WAS ITS ORIGINAL PURPOSE (Atlas, and originally a missile, blah blah), Come now, Andy - ask me something HARD...LOL. So, then it went on to, 'Kids today know nothing of these guys, and all they did, and there's only one Mercury boy left, and and and..' Dang. You never know.

b) Random guy at the convenience store, re: my patches on my bag. O M G. Another half hour, ranging from the manned space program to Bob Lazar/Area 51 to stealth tech to Project Indoctrination. What.


Both said, "We should hang out." L O L

I'm such a guy. I love surprises like this. This shit NEVER happens to me.

This is so weird to me; so unexpected.

I'm actually happy, and it's such a long unfamiliar feeling.

Wednesday night, Pete - for the thousandth time in liEk thirty years - asked me to marry him, again.

It just popped out. I said, "Okay."

I blame the Orion Nebula.

So. Back to reality, tonight. At least, for one night.

Fell hard off the no-carb wagon, and I'm feelin' it. Yuck. SO not worth it.

Jaw-dropping gifts, this year - - in no particular order - -

But, also? I got some pretty good sleep :)

I was SO hoping for this - many thanks to CoF, of course, for filling my nerdy little heart with joy:

I especially like Robert's ending and pointing at Brian, who seems to be having a good time..maybe remembering his hair-band days with, 'Dare' (that's him, on the far right)..

Oh, Brian, Brian, Brian, honey; bless your little heart.

L O L.

Now, I won't pretend to know the song, here, or to even care who Fall Out Boy IS - but my daughter sent me this. Apparently, the school board at my kids' former high school banned the marching band from playing said song in their halftime show - - so, the band invited to do it WITH THEM at their concert :D - -

So. My return to work, tonight, coincides with this:

Apollo 11 returned to earth, forty-five years ago, today :)

As sad as they were that it was over, I'M SADDER. BELIEVE ME. And I'm sure that my return will be met with much less flag-waving and fewer cigars..

"Before anyone asks, no, sex in space is not part of our downtime. We're a small group of focused professionals working in a zero-gravity enclosed environment without a lot of privacy -- even if we wanted to, it would be challenging, to say the very least. As space travel becomes more common and sophisticated, it will probably happen, but it's not happening at the moment, so please don't write any fan fiction about me."

Also - Rock Lobster, LOL.

So. Yesterday was this: http://www.cineworld.co.uk/whatson/monty-python-live-mostly?cinema=27

AND IT WAS AMAZING. My brother and his girlfriend saw it, with me - and GOD, I needed a laugh..got a bit verklempt, in bits, couldn't help it...they were magnificent, and looked fantastic. My sole complaint was that it was too short, lol (though Mike Myers was entirely unnecessary..Brian Cox and Stephen Hawking, however, were..). The audience helped, too - we were all really into it :)

Rob managed to get a good snap of them, at the end:

Truly, Python FOREVER.



In other news - I just got asked out. On a date. And DRANK A BEER. AT THE LAUNDRAMAT!

Things have clearly gotten out of control.
