Weekly News

Welcome back to a weekly news feature run by a non-weepy, relatively-normal person this week. I have partially recovered from taking my only son to college and dropping him off.

*Sniff*

The news is a good distraction. This first story is equally intriguing and macabre. Ultimately, I love how beautiful that dress looks as a result.

Um … crappy is absolute the correct word.

Dude. (Do you like my surfer moment? I had a very Bill and Ted moment when I saw the article. :)) This is so close in terms of space distance. I love astronomy!

That’ll do it for me this week. I get to see my son on Sunday, so I’ll be even better next week. See you in seven.

    I don’t really understand the whole salt bride thing, and how can they link snow and sugar to death’s embrace? The pic of the statues underwater is cool, but no one will see them there… The explosions!! Holy CRAP!! Cool planet info! I hope Thanksgiving comes soon so you get to see your boy again. Are you skyping once a week or something in the meantime?

      I don’t understand how they relate sugar or salt to death, but the result is beautiful. Holy crap is right. 🙂 I’m texting him daily, and we have gone up twice to take things for him. Separate, but not as much as kiddos who left town for college.

  2. An earth-like planet and that close to us? That’s an incredible find.

    How many times have you called your son since dropping him off?
