Adventures in Space with Monster Fish

4:21:00 AM

Sometimes being awake all night has its advantages. Today is one of those times. I'm getting to watch the launch of the Discovery space shuttle. Sure, I've seen video playback of shuttle launches before, but I'm watching a satellite feed of it actually happen. As a matter of fact, I'm about to go record it for my show.

Now that record has been pushed and the volume turned up loud enough so I can hear when they fire up the engines, on to the blogging. I really don't have anything to talk about. I've been thinking about things I want to write about but the Discovery launch threw that off this morning. I'm not complaining though. I'm actually pretty excited about getting to watch it as it's happening.

I've always had a fascination with space. In fact, when I was younger I wanted to be an astronaut. That was back before I figured out I'm horrible at math and science. But when I was in fifth grade, our class took an overnight trip to Space Camp in Huntsville. And then when I was in 7th grade we went to the Coca-Cola Space Center in Columbus, Ga. Both of those trips were awesome.

In other news, check this out:
I went to the beach this weekend with the boyfriend and we went to Bass Pro Shop while we were there. They had a saltwater tank so we stopped to look at the monster fish. That's the biggest one. It was literally as big as me and probably could have eaten me.

  2. You know what, when I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut too. But only because the planets are so beautiful when I see them on TV and books and stuff. And I wanted to take a picture of saturn. You know, to have something to show off to my childhood friends. ;D

  3. Not so big on space and shit. Heights scare me, so people who are dumb enough to rocket into space don't impress me. They terrify me. :(
