So it probably shouldn’t surprise you that I’ve got the TV set on the news channel in expectation of the shuttle’s launch this morning in 9 minutes from the time of this post. I dunno, I think I blame Star Trek for the fact I have an interest, even if it’s a passing one, in the US’s space program. Hopefully, the thing actually gets off the ground today… I’ve made a point to watch it this morning, which is a far cry from Friday’s launch when, had it actually gone according to plan, I wouldn’t have been home and so would have ended up missing it. Okay, they’re doing the kinda pre-launch interview, so I think I’ll go flake out and sort of pay attention to this here. Geekdom is awesome.
