Contact is one of my favorite movies. But it was actually more like a glider flight.
I actually just watched Contact recently--caught it on tv and could not stop watching. I really love the joining of science and faith in that film. I might check out the book someday when there's time.
The book is a little on the dry side... But it is Carl Sagan. I'd actually recommend one of his non-fiction books if you're into that stuff.
I like some of the things he says in "Pale Blue Dot"
I had a dream last night that I was walking by the house I spent my adolescence in(which is just a couple miles away from my current house). For some reason or another I stumbled as I approached the front door and inadvertently sort of "knocked" it. It opened immediately and a middle aged man greeted me warmly saying "Hey, come on in!" I replied, surprised, "You know who I am?", and he said "Sure, you used to live here!" and I said "How do you know that?" and he said "You wouldn't have knocked if you didn't!"(lol). So he promptly invited me in and I got to tour my old home, which had changed quite a bit in the meantime. For example, a jacuzzi had been installed in my former bedroom.
You should go back there and knock the door in real life to see what happens, then report back to us.
I seem to have those sorts of dreams a lot, about going to places from my childhood, whether they're real or not. Peter Pan complex. *nods and puffs thoughtfully on imaginary pipe*
While visiting my boyfriend, I had a dream that I had gotten on a bus to go home several days early and realized my mistake after it had already set off. I then spent the rest of the dream frantically trying to figure out how I could return and what I had to do until then. At some point I decided I would walk back, but I couldn't seem to leave the city I had ended up in.
I had a dream last night that I was at Comic Con at the Doctor Who panel. I got in line and asked Alex Kingston a question about the difference between shooting schedules and styles in American (ER) and British (Doctor Who) show.
Oh, and I don't remember much, but I had some dream about lasers....there were lasers.
I had a JCC themed dream on last evening. Somehow, I had left a hotel to infiltrate a secret libertarian cabal. They were meeting in a secret room that could only be accessed through the frozen food wall of a convenience store. In any case, once we arrived, they were showing a poorly done film by Magister Iacenorum that purported to show the evils of our present government and its socialist tendencies. Mostly, though, it just mocked the libertarians, in ways they were apparently not aware of. So I was very delighted this whole time, and giggling like a schoolgirl at its brazenness. At some point some of the others began to get grumpy about all of this, and wanted me to quiet down so they could enjoy the movie. Even, who I'd not previously realized was even present, then jumped to my defense and told them how immensely stupid they all were for believing as they did in the first place, in one of his grand historical/sociopolitical harangues. Then we all left.
This is just as realistic as my dream where Evan was grumpy for having to dress up and go to a night club.
What is with you people and dreaming up these crazy bizarro versions of me?
Lol everyone has nightmares about Evan.
Two dreams from last night:
1) I was hanging out with John Barrowman, chatting and walking around somewhere, when someone came up and asked him if he was gay. He was like "uh.. yes?" Then the person left. We just kind of were both like "what the hell kind of random question is that?!"
2) I was feeling sick, laying at home watching ER and taking my temperature. It kept fluctuating wildly from like 103 to ... 71.
1.) BARROWMAN!!!!!!! *shakes fist*
2.) I read that as "flatulating"
1.) I believe you mean:
2.) No.. not that. Also, I was drinking Irn Bru. I had a whole new case of it. I didn't realise that part was a dream until I went down to get some and there was only one left.
The only dream that I can remember from last night was that I was editing Wookieepedia and removing a bunch of fanon from an article. As I checked the article's history, I saw that the fanon had been there for some time and I wondered why no one noticed. Not only was it fanon, but the formatting was all screwed up and the main image was replaced with some clip-art of something that had something to do with a song of the likes I had never heard or seen yet. So, after I undo the damage, I go to warn the user who had made the edit, and I see that the user had been warned several times about the same stuff, but never once been blocked. So, I do the honors and go to block the user, only to wake up just as I was going to put in how long the block should last.
Perhaps I need a vacation...
There are a lot of nerds here, but judging from that dream, you might take home the trophy.
I dreamed of the Miami Airport.
