Musings

  • I watched the SpaceX launch today, and I’ll be honest: I haven’t been this excited about a rocket launch since Challenger.  Good on Mister Musk and his team for making space fun again.
  • Yeah, launching a red convertible into solar orbit might seem like a frivolous thing to do, but you have to admit that it has style
  • I wonder how long the thing will be up there before it goes from ‘Wow, what a technological wonder’ to ‘Don’t touch it!  That’s a historical landmark!’ to ‘Will someone please do something about this navigation hazard?’
  • The latest book went off to the alpha readers today.  Hopefully, it’ll be ready to go by the end of March.
  • I started alpha reading a friend’s book that I’ve been neglecting while I finished up my own project.  Someday, I hope to write half as well as my friends.
  • Speaking of good writers, LawDog has a sample chapter from his first audiobook up.  I’ll admit it.  I read the blogposts, have a hard copy of the book, and I was still happy to spend an Audible credit to get this.  It’ll be a great book to listen to during drives.
  • I’m pretty sure that the next few months at work are not going to well and truly suck, but I am also sure that they won’t go as smooth as glass.  It’s trying to figure out at which end of that spectrum my life will be that’s giving me fits.

    You say “the end of March” like it isn’t forty nine weeks in dog weeks!
    I will be standing outside of the Kindle store with my electronic nose pressed against the electronic glass.
    “Is it there yet? Is it there yet? Is it there yet?”

  2. Yep, and the convertible is playing music too! THAT should confuse the hell out of the aliens… 😀

    • Elon Musk doesn’t have a hair on his ass if it’s not playing “Space Oddity” at least once in a while.
