Friday, April 17



Well... I totally missed yesterday, from an LJ perspective.
The flu has receded (fingers crossed), but the world of "things to do" has just doubled and tripled. :(
I had hopes that we would get suz's car back yesterday... but that didn't happen. So I drove her in again today and again... we wait for a call from the mech.

Last night... (fun) I popped Ed in the car and drove with him and my telescope out to the middle of BFE ... a farmers house in the country near our neck-of-the-woods. This was arranged by Ed's teacher who knows this particular farmer...
Farmer dude has a little "observatory". It's cute... it's a cliche looking little cabana... like a 10 x 10 room with a shingled, standard-looking roof... except the whole roof "slides forward on rails opening up the 10 x 10 room. :) He has a 10 or 12 inch scope in there and it's awesome. Via the parents of the 12 - 14 kids that came, there was a row of telescopes (the 4 inch variety) in the yard. We "educated" for a while about constellations, finding the north star and told "star" stories. We looked at Saturn, Orion's nebula, some star clusters and a couple of deep-sky objects. We were home by 10. :)

I would like to thank Lady Gag-ah for making me smile so often...
Every time I hear that song...(poker face) I marvel at how clear it is that she's saying "fuck her face" on the second part of the chorus.
Local radio guys interviewed her a little while ago and asked her straight up... hahaha... she did not deny... not even close.
"It is what it is man..." (direct quote).
Lady Gaggggggg... "ouch... fuck man... stop it..." gagagagag.... "gah! arrrrggg" cough, choke... spit... "sto... " slap... scratch..." Ga.

LOL....

Amazing Race XIV Update!!

Amazing Race – Finally! Hobbits



Mai Thai Trannies



And they're off... bwahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! To Bangkok, Thailand… which apparently translates into “Tranny’s a’plenty”. They’re getting down towards the end-game and Cap’t Giant-Mittens is having a little fun with our globe trotters. In fact… this could actually be called “The Amazing Hobbit Torture Race”.
