Just causeway

Nic managed to snag us causeway tickets for STS-133. If all the heavens align correctly, we are going to be treated to a view of the shuttle launching from around 6 miles away. Fingers crossed everything goes to plan!

The answer to life, the universe and everything

is 42.

Today, if one arbitrarily takes the Y/M/D digits as 101010 deserves to be known as Douglas Adams day, in my humble opinion.

and the question - well, that's the hard bit, isn't it?

I've been pondering this (for the majority of my life, as always) and I'm wondering if it's really as simple as ticking boxes on a list. For some people, it's travelling, food, company. For some people it's experience, music, adrenaline. For some it's solitude, peace, contemplation. Many things overlap, many things are mutually exclusive. Most people have different definitions of the things that go together to define their place in life, their destiny.

For me - adrenaline is high up there. Laddering in SC2 over the last month has been an experience like no other, although I'm not sure I actually enjoy it! Travelling is actually something I'm not hugely fond of, but arriving in new places is something I love. All things technological is definitely a defining part of the human experience for me, so watching the shuttle go up (fingers crossed) could well be one of my defining moments.

Next month is going to be cool as hell, that's for sure ;)
