From the "SPAAAACE" column, we have the following item.

The document package that has eaten the last few weeks of my life (including last weekend and incidentally, today, which is my birthday) has gone off to ESA. If it were printed out, the paper used would weigh more than the instrument we're going to build for the spacecraft. BUT HEY We're goin' to JUPITER!...in about eight years.

Now I get to go be fed by my lovely generous friends and possibly have a very small glass of wine. Happy Birthday To Me!

From the "Children Being Embarrassingly Honest" column, we have the following item.

The toddler & I were waiting at the train platform when a man on a bicycle steamed up. It was pretty chilly out so I mean that literally. Humuhumu turned, pointed at him & said, "Hot, Mama. Hot man. Hot. HOT!" Er. I mean what do you say? "She means that in the thermal sense?" Perhaps not.

"She means that in the thermal sense?"

Same went for a lot of people on the train platform. Poor red-faced cyclist...

Thank you! I have decided that celebrations shall continue this week, as I haven't had (and won't get) a full day to myself. So I'm taking bits here and there, meals and such. :)

Yes! Next up is finishing presentation for next week. And after that, the second document package delivery (late October). And THEN relax (for a bit). :)

Over here, in the Radiation Safety Group, it's always a good idea to ask "She means that in the thermal sense?"

Happy birthday!

Thank you, I did. It was stressful at first and then a great relief to have a nice relaxing meal with friends. :)

Thank you! I'm still celebrating (because I haven't got a whole day to take for myself this week) so it's not belated in my book. ;)
