The future - Livre d'Or

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.

Still way too early to say we've definitely found signs of life, but very encouraging.

Squee! Yayfulness! "Life" on Mars! That is exciting indeed. (Not so) secretly, I'm a big pro-NASA space geek. Can't wait for more news to come out.

Gotta love life.

Strange how you get used to hearing words in certain contexts.

I've now got an image of Nasa finding a west-country farmer growing crops without using chemicals on mars in my head.

Which is a usage I will never be able to read again without thinking of the "food made from pure energy" bit in The Armageddon Rag.
