A Post with Credits to the Saturn V and the Perseid Meteor Shower

I'm afraid my life has been slightly boring lately. Not that I'm bored...nope...quite on the contrary my friends. I have been bustin' my hump moving my crap from the small-one-bedroom-Saturn-V-facing-apartment to the large-oh-my-gosh-does-this-house-ever-end-in-the-shadow-of-the-Saturn-V house. It is quite a pain. And double pain for the BF who not only gets to help me move said crap, but also gets to endure my verbal crappage regarding the fine art of object placement within said, new dwelling. Poor guy.

I'm really not sure where I am even going with this post, except that I can't wait to finish up the move and get back to more important blog subjects...you know...like space and stuff ;-)

But in the meantime you will get a quick reminder about the Perseid Meteor Shower tonight (it was also last night...but I was too pooped to check it out). Check your local forecast for the best viewing times...here in Huntsville the peak is expected to occur from about 11pm to 5am with up to 80 meteors per hour! This reminds me of that time I made my BFF Liz stay up all night just to watch the solar eclipse on our 12 inch dorm-room T.V. I'm pretty sure she thought I was crazy. So....go be crazy, watch some meteors tonight, and call in sick to work tomorrow...I'm just saying ;-)
