Watching from afar

Nic and I just watched Discovery STS 133 launch on a really short window (2 seconds left). What a fantastic piece of technology, what a fantastic view of the launch and what an amazing process involved to get the bird into space.

I'm totally gutted that we didn't get to see it launch from the causeway - I'll be mounting the tickets and putting them up on the wall somewhere, as that's our only link to how close we came to watching it live.

Good luck to you, Discovery crew.

LoL has sucked me in, somewhat. Halfway to 30 now, enjoying playing a game competitively again. SC2 just freaks me out too much to play properly competitively - at least with LoL there's other folks to rely on to carry the game.

Gabe is so close to walking properly - he keeps taking a couple of steps then dropping to the floor. What a lazy boy.
