    Actually I'm ummmmmmmmm..........well......sorta afraid of boats.

    Thanks Buzz for the compliment. I actually took about 20 minutes to figure out how to write that. The guy who works in the computer lab aked what I was doing that took so long. Hehe.

    Sandy, my family and I went on a helicopter tripand got about 65 minutes worth of footageof mountains, rainforests, ocean, beaches and whales. Not that the whales would be of any use. lol.

    I haven't een how good it i yet. But it was taken by a camea on the helicoer, not my dad o me. If I took it, it would be well bad. lol.

    Maybe I'll be ble to make the next shuttle launch. At least I won't have to worry about the spirit cough:buzz:cough.

    :D

    Well I gotta go to the pool get a tan and then go to a teen activity.

    Aloha

    I don't think I can make it.

    I'll try and ask my parents. Although I know what my mom will say.

    "Amanda you need sleep. And sleeping on the floor and on a bench in the airport on Friday night doesn't cut it."

    I wanna see the shuttle. That would be so cool considering my vision problem makes it almost impossible for me to do so where I live. Sometimes my sister will catch it in time to attempt to show me. lol.

    Over achiever eh Buzz? hehe

    Thanks for letting us know Katie.

    Mandy.
    Try and never get jetlag. It's a bad thing.

    Launch is now set for tomorrow (Monday, April 8) between 2 and 6pm. They should release the exact time this afternoon.

    Anyone who wants to come is still more than welcome to (it's public viewing, after all), but the odds are extremely slim (sorry, that should be "slim...to the extreme!") that I'll be at the viewing site. I have class immediately after work, and while I have skipped class to see launches before (shhhh.....) I have pesky finals coming up in two weeks which means I can't tomorrow.

    So anyway, come if you want, just don't look for the X-wing hat or Rebel pilot.

    More to come (as always).
    Everyone set their clocks ahead?

    A word of warning: Check the local news before you drive over there. Right now they are predicting a 40% chance of cancellation due to winds. In Viera Channel 13 has the 24-hour, continuous update. I'm not sure what the channels are in other areas. Skilled channel surfers should be able to find them without many problems.

    So out of curiosity, did anyone make it over for the launch today? It was just gorgeous, and loud too. Loud ones are the best. :)
