Turn Around, Bright Eyes…

Total eclipse, February 20, 2008.  And by happy 80’s cheese ballad coincidence, it’s a total eclipse of the heart — the star in the top part of the image is Regulus, the “heart” of the constellation Leo, the lion.  (The point of light in the lower left is Saturn.)

Given that I’m a Leo, it must be an astrological ill omen to have Bonnie Tyler involved in all this.  Perhaps I will sacrifice several mix tapes on the altar to ward off any evil junior high flashbacks.



This is truly ultra-geek.

But an awesome shot none-the-less.

“But” an awesome shot? So you’re implying ultra-geekiness doesn’t automatically result in AWESOMENESS?!

3, the word “but” is used as sort of a transitional phrase here with none of those implications.

And what of “none-the-less”? I think you just got BUSTED, wordsmith! Somewhere in the bowels of your mind, ultra-geek is incompatible with pure awesomenessitude. But we likes u none-the-less.

This is a triumph. I’m making a note here: GREAT SUCCESS. It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.

We do what we must because we can…
