It's the last 23 minutes that are the longest.
 
2019-06-11 09:05:42 PM  
Yes.  Those last 23 minutes.

I see what you did there.

Well, 23+6 for you!

Gotta get set up.  In a hotel again.  Sold my Dad's house today.  Of course there is no sci chan.

Whoa. New Horizon's arrival at Pluto was five years ago?!

"Asteroid the size of a football field has a chance of hitting the earth this year."

That's it?! That's all you're going to say?

Ah, I bet that is a relief of sorts. Selling the house, I mean.

Yes, no more taxes, grass cutting, utilities and maintenance, but no more house in my old town, and less reason to visit relatives, plus it felt funny to see other people moving in.  One less problem, down to 98 now.

I want to find out what that mass on the moon is.  That thing that is five times the size of Hawaii.

The nickel/iron core of the thing that caused the crater.

So, I have reignited an old interest of mine: Fountain pens.

It might now be an obsession.

I recently got a Pilot Falcon, soft extra fine. After a week or so, I wish I could see what the fine is like.

I also have some much cheaper Lamy's, which are nice.

I'm reading and watching tons of reviews of various pens as, of course, I need another.

I recently tried it again with a cheap Lamy Safari from gouletpens.com.  it works well, but seems a little scratchy.

Anything good happening on the Sci Chan show?

Found the whole "asteroid possibly hitting earth this year:"

https://www.space.com/asteroid-could-​h​it-earth-in-september-2019.html

Currently a 1-in-7000 chance of impact in September.

Time to open this 24.6 oz Stella!

Better than the chance of winning the lottery.  Time to start selling survivalist grub to those who bet on us getting hit.

They should make drink bubbles that don't pop until you chew them.

That seems like the thing.  The popping bobas could be filled with some sort of 'edible' with a good flavor, that keeps its contents fresh and potent until chewed.

I got caught up in an episode of Sherlock and didn't notice the time. The sun just went down a few minutes ago. Threw off my circadian rhythms.

Ooh! A Saturnian garbage ring. That might be pretty from faraway.

Didn't we used to call it "space junk" instead of "debris"?
 
2019-06-11 10:48:15 PM  
I'm watching National Treasure, or something like that.  The guy with the high voice on Mysteries of the Abandoned would almost be better.

I'm in a downtown hotel and was asleep until the church bells rang 9:00.  Color me surprised and thankful.

Is that where they sent the nucular waste instead of Yucca Mountain.  Hey, we might need that stuff someday.

Maybe the general term is "space junk," but when you're talking about a known, specific piece it may be "debris." Or, more likely, the script writer got a thesaurus for the previous holiday season.

I'd never buy a house next to a church. God-botherers tend to be loud. Big bells, singing, etc.

Reminds me of Medieval Days.  I expect to see farm animals marched through the streets, and jugglers.  But it is a nice thing, imho, I didn't know this was still done.

If I were going to change my gender, I'd definitely change my name to something more exotic.

Shelita Buffay is my drag name.
