Eclipse=awesome

Despite 90% cloud cover, Mom and I sat out by the pool listening to the wind through the fan palms, and waited for the tiny breaks in the clouds that let us see this rare and wonderful event. It was pretty awesome.
Today is Yule, and with the eclipse it has bonus powers of renewal (and awesomeness). I hope that it will be a time of some real connection and rejuvenation for me. I will try to record my thoughts and activities here in a more organized fashion, so I can track my progress.

In conclusion:

Space! It's really big! \o/

Latin for fun and profit

LOL, the medieval story we got to translate in class was HILARIOUS: guy kills enemy, makes a cup out of enemy's skull, marries enemy's daughter, delights in giving daughter the cup and inviting her to have a drink with dear ole dad, daughter plots and kills the guy. Fun times with barbarians!
And now, guess what?

We're reading GEOFFREY OF MONMOUTH, you guys. A story about HENGIST.  LOLZ forever.

Ahem. Yeah, I can be serious.  Someday. There are tales of SPACE: IT'S REALLY BIG! \o/ plus cute baby elephants, the biker invasion of Galveston Island, airport delays with bonus beagle action, and an XTREME QUILT SHOW experience to be blogged, maybe.  Eventually.  Some of the photos are on Flickr already.

Seriously:
SPACE! IT'S REALLY BIG!! \o/ ♥ ♥

Symphony of Science and other neat things

Last night one of my old friends had a birthday party - it was a "Swango Dance Party" and there were some very impressive dancers. I met up with more old friends, mostly from high school, and met some new people. I may need to check out the dance scene here - not club dancing, but social dancing. Apparently there's a thriving tango and swing culture that I've just missed.

Here, Symphony of Science, just to put a smile on your face (And in case the embedding doesn't work, you can just go watch it on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Cd36WJ79z4:
