Pessimistic Optimism

Life as I see it… sort of.

Paris Hilton, the Space Shuttle and Harry Potter

Let’s get the least important stuff out of the way first, Paris Hilton’s in jail.

As for the space shuttle, Atlantis, it’s return has been delayed because of a problem with the Russian part of the international space station or so they say.  I guess if you’re going to blame a space station problem on someone, the Russians are as good a scapegoat as anyone.  I’m actually not sure what the problem is or if it’s delayed because of it or the rumor that NASA rented out Kennedy Space Center for the next month to J.K.Rowling for her Deathly Hollows catch and release program.  I think someone said she’s going to set books free by tossing them out of one of the unused shuttles, like Enterprise or Endeavour, while circumnavigating the globe.  If you happen to be one of the lucky people who catches one of these freebies, maybe she’ll visit you in the hospital and sign it, if she has time and you promise not to sue her for being responsible for a seven hundred page missile raining down on you. 

Before you spend all your waking hours staring into the sky take into account that none of this has neither been confirmed nor denied as of this posting.  For some reason I couldn’t find a listing for JK Rowling in the phone book to check my facts and NASA wasn’t in there either.

The posts have been few and far between as of late because of my kids and the great weather in Western New York.  For some reason they expect me to take them outside all the time and that cuts heavily into my writing.  I’ll try to spread my joy more often soon, but I’m not making any promises.

  1. WHY DOES THIS WORLD GET SO WRAPPED UP IN Paris Hilton and celebrity gossip, reporting as accurately as possible and yet, portrays the real things going on in the world with less factual information and disregard of the good things people do in the world. What the heck has Paris Hilton done for this world? Why is it that when I turn on the news over here, I hear Paris Hilton this, Linsay Lohen that, Britney Spears etc etc…its disgusting.
    ok, I’m off my soap box. Thanks for posting, I really do love seeing what you’re up to. The family is an inspiration to me. Miss ya!

  3. A.W,
    The soap box suits you well, you should do it more often.


    Sorry for the delayed response from me.
