Was it worth it?

(Feedback says that posting earlier in the day was well-received, plus I passed out last night without posting, so … seize the consciousness while it hovers I suppose.) For absolutely no good reason at all my body decided it was going to become PLAGUE CENTRAL yesterday. Went to bed feeling fine, woke up around 2am feeling shitty, and every wake-up from that point on (and there were so very many) was worse. I spent all […]

Vostok

Banging out my post now since I’ll be occupied possibly until late tonight. As previously mentioned, Scott is pretty big into ham radios. Today he discovered that the International Space Station will be making assorted transmissions from Yuri Gagarin’s historic flight. We’ll apparently (theoretically) be able to start receiving them around 10pm or so. And thus tonight we’ll be huddling around a radio, much as I imagine they were 50 years ago. Not much to […]

I’m guessing no one will much care but me. I […]

The whole thing brought with it a feeling of melancholy (though to be fair with my mood of late, ripping a Kraft single when I open the cellophane also brings a feeling of melancholy). I think that retiring the shuttle is ultimately a good and necessary step for the advancement of space exploration, but Discovery, man. […]

January 29, 1986

This was a really good day. Slept in and had a morning cuddle with my guy, played with my puppy, went out to run some errands, had nummity Five Guys for lunch, did some more errandy things, nearly burned down my house, tried a new recipe that didn’t suck, played some more Rock Band Network, and still was able to feel relaxed and pretty well-rested. Even the near disaster with the dryer didn’t blip my […]
