LUNAR ECLIPSE this Saturday. Who's coming? Anyone? Please? I really want someone to come. The people from work who said they'd come are all scheduled to work because there is a Jeff Foxworthy show at the Bass Hall (I'm LAUGHING so hard at them, HAHAHAHAHAHA, Jeff Foxworthy), so right now it's just me. Yeah, that's not gonna work.

Since Andrew is working, I'm looking at Jess and AnnE and Megan and Aaron. In fact, I'm staring threateningly at you. So is my killer kitty.

Hey, remember this essay? The one I made up when I was really tired? The 3 pages of pure bull, comparing Plato's allegory of the cave to fractals??

I got 47/50.

Remember when I accidentally slept all day and wrote a paper for history while half asleep?
Got a 97.

HOW? Man, I don't know if I should be proud of this or not, but I seem to be very very good at bs-ing essays while brain dead. I suppose it's from much practice in Glaser's class, but still, that was two years ago and I've had a terrible Comp I class since then. I am very confused by this, but I suppose I'll just accept it and hope it keeps happening :-)

Oh, and for those of you who live in places that are not here, find out about the upcoming lunar eclipse here. I expect everyone go at least try to see it. Your only real excuse is bad weather, and since I know at least the general areas you guys live in I can check your excuses with weather.com ^_~

Oh, and fauxbad, I'm finally listening to your cd. It really confused me at first, but it earns a thumbs up. FYI.

Oh, and Mason is sick. Poor little guy, he has an ear infection. He's still an amazingly easy baby to sit for, though. He was a little fussy at some points, but I just took him outside and he calmed right down, and both times that I put him down for naps he went right out, like flipping a switch. Between the two naps he was kinda cranky, but before and after the naps he was quite pleasant, I played with him and whatnot, and MAN do I love the little guy. He's such a cutie. I need to take pictures of him, so you can all see how adorable he is :-)

First off, I'M A NERD, I'm making this big thing in excel to keep track of my grades... cross-linked sheets to keep up with my GPA at all times, I insert a grade on, say, a test and *bam* it changes the grade for the class and my GPA on the first sheet. Each class has it's own tab, and it's own calculations based on how the prof does it... weighted averages in astronomy, a point system in history, straight averaging in philosophy... this is what I do when I'm bored, people, imagine if I was trying to be productive with something like this. Gah.

More proof of nerdiness: I keep wanting to go buy the Fables yearly thing, but in my head I call it the "Fables Annular"... Then I stop and think "hmmmmmmm, what's wrong with that, something is wrong with that..." and then I go "OH! ANNUAL. Not annular." Then I realized that I am such a nerd that my various nerdings are getting mixed up. That's bad. Funny, but bad.

Oh, and I saw the Killdares 4 times today. MAN, they put on such a great show. Roy Fletcher is back as guitarist, and he's such a friendly guy, he remembered me from last year! Everyone should go to the State Fair to see them. I want to go again. Who will go with me? If no one volunteers, I'm kidnapping one of you. You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.

Also, November 8. Lunar Eclipse. Telescope, stars, planets, etc... I've already asked for the night off from work, and I've got one person who says he'll come... who else? Also, does anyone have any suggestions for *where* I could go that'd be nice and dark? My current idea is to just pull over on 35, north of the "metromess" as our prof so lovingly calls it. Any better ideas? (HINT: This is totally your CHANCE to suggest a place near to your place of dwelling, so as to make it more convenient for YOU TO COME.) It's going to happen fairly early in the evening, as the sun sets in the west it'll be rising mid-eclipse in the east. The really pretty part will begin at about 7 (remember it's after daylight savings ends) and go to about 7:30, but the umbra and penumbra will still be there to watch go away. If we're fast while the moon is eclipsed, we'll get a great view of the Pleiades, and of Andromeda (A WHOLE OTHER GALAXY, HOW CAN THAT NOT EXCITE YOU??????). Mars will of course still be visible, and we can take a peek at it, and at about 10 Saturn will rise, so if we feel like hanging out we can look at it (the penumbra will still be visible, so if we want to watch the entire eclipse (like nerds) we'll be there anyways). IF the northern horizon is clear, we can try to peek at the binary star (Mizar) in the big dipper, otherwise it'll set and not rise again till after 1 am. If you guys want, we can take moon maps and look at the craters of the moon, and we can look at the nebulae in Orion's belt. I'll try to get some good binoculars before then, too, so that while I'm fiddling with pointing the telescope you can look at the sky/moon/nebulae/galaxies.

Oh, and thinking is dangerous.

Oh, and I need to write a paper for history. Bah.

Oh, and take the rope from around your neck, take the blindfold from your eyes, take the rope from around your neck and take the blindfold from your eyes and you'll never be surprised when they tell you that they love you while they're eating you alive... I *heart* the Killdares (YES, I know it's technically a Levellers song, but the Killdares do a great cover of it!) :-)

I want to go out someplace dark on November 8th and look at the sky. Not only is there a total lunar eclipse, but Saturn and Mars will be above the horizion, and Andromeda will be visible. Yeah, the planets and Andromeda will be visible other nights, but the 8th will have the lunar eclipse, so I wanna go out that night. It's a Saturday night, and I really want some people to go with me. It's more fun that way. I want to take my telescope and I want to get some binoculars before then, so we can see Saturn's rings and hopefully be able to tell that Andromeda is a galaxy (I'm really excited about that!), and I'd also like to point my telescope at the Pleiades to get a look at them, and at the nebula in Orion's belt. Please someone come with me, I really don't want to go alone. It'll be beautiful, I promise, especially with the lunar eclipse. If we can find a sufficiently dark place, then wow, cuase it'll be nice and chilly so it'll be stunning.

Yes.

Ok, so now I'm going to bed. This was quite possibly the craziest weekend ever. I'll write down everything I did sometime tomorrow, but I am soooooo tired right now. I have had two big caramel macchiatos tonight, and the caffine did nothing for me. My eyes are squinty.

G'night.

I'm going to go look at the Harvest Moon now.

For those of you who don't know, this Wednesday's full moon will be the Harvest Moon. Mars will also be very close to the moon. Check it out, Mars is still really bright so it'll be a sight worth at least glancing at.

I can't believe 5 pillows fit up my nose.. or maybe that's just what it feels like. Bleh. AnnE, it is totally all your fault I HATE YOU. Note the lack of linkage to her lj, cause that's how I caught it, via her lj. Yes.

In the meantime, I'm going to down some more medicine and go to bed. Gnight!

I'm so excited! I just can't hide it!

Ok, anyways, my school is hosting a Mars-watching Star Party Thursday night... which means I get to look at Mars through better telescopes than mine, and hopefull I'll be able to take mine up there and have them show me how to use it correctly... YAY! When my astronomy prof announced it today, I was so excited I was bouncing through the rest of class. I was going to ask about it, cause I figured they would, and I'm really glad I don't work Thursday. Yay yay yay yay!!!

Anyone wanna come?
