Catch a falling star, my ass!

I am officially resigning from both the “Union of Dippy Astro Geeks” and the “I Can Take It, I’m From Maine Club,” since my first thought at 4:15am was: “Who the hell set the alarm that early?”

My second thought was: “I should go watch the Leonids.” Hey, I used to get up every morning for months at a time and try to start a car, in the dark, in the snow, at 20-below-zero. How bad could this be?

My third thought was drowned out by snoring.

    Speaking as another member of that masochistic organization of ICTI,IFM, I was actually wide awake at 5:30, which was mentioned as the best time to see the Leonids here in Massachusetts, but the soft, warm pillow-top on our new mattress was holding me down against my will.

    That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

    The response, Mr.Solonor, is that you can’t HACK it! 🙂

    Well I got up at 5:30 and went outside in the 20 degree darkness. Wimps!

    I have to say it was the second coolest thing I have ever seen in my life. The first was last year’s Leonid showers. Dude, you missed out on an amazing show.

    I admit it I am still a Mainah…AND a masochist…. I was up at 4 am watching the stahs…dang it was cold…..there was a few pretty ones…but I won’t do it again in this lifetime…considering the next one isn’t scheduled till 2099….I think I am safe…But the real question is…. Will Ooshka’s tail survive???
