The future

So today I was sitting in the office, working late because my boss emailed me in the middle of this afternoon asking for a report that has to be finished by Monday *sigh* And I got stuck on phrasing and procrastinated by glancing at my friends page, and caught compilerbitch's post that there was about to be a major press announcement from NASA. So I watched it, live video from the American space research people right there on my desk at work... announcing that they've found organics on Mars!!!!

Then I was squeeing about it to hatam_soferet by IM, and she quickly made me an icon to celebrate. I have been thinking for a while that I need an icon for joy and celebration, and I think this fits very well. And I came home and fed my over-excited inner 8-year-old burgers and macaroni and ketchup, and now I'm posting to my blog to share the squee with all of you. Tomorrow I shall download the original paper from an electronic library I have access to at work, just for the sake of being a distant witness to history.

I like being grownup in the future.
