do you know what i am tired of? the damn shuttle. CNN today. i've had a migraine in the works (i am just a delicate blossom when it comes to me and pressure shifts) and i spent a good portion of the morning on the sofa with coffee, migraine advil, and CNN.

but the whole time, the only thing covered were various aspects of the shuttle. how disorienting to see it take off, watch it go around, look at pictures, then go back in time and go into a detailed account of the takeoff... i hate horrible time shifts like that.

and i'm sure i was missing more than what they were feeding that little news ticker at the bottom. but by the time i would have checked, i was more than bored of the tv and my eyes were telling me:

kaylen, we do not want to hurt anymore and this is hurting us. hurting us both.

Spacecraft launches are always marked by endless delays and frustrating pauses. President Dwight Eisenhower was by no means the last person to holler, "Get those scientists away from that rocket and launch it!"

Ah, well. The important thing is to keep launching them.
