Balancing Act


The idea of just hanging out in a space station scares the shit out of me. The closest I have ever come was riding a Greyhound bus through Texas in the middle of the night, dark with points of light in the distance. The only part I'd be interested in would be the weightlessness.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind being weightless either.

Don't show this one to Tay, she will want them both to be her boyfriend.

If Taylor gets one, I get the other.
I know what you mean about the Greyhound. My "space experience" is limited to laying on my back in a field out at the co-op and flipping the switch in my mind to make up down and down up and feeling like I was going to fall off the earth into the great black nothingness of sky. It made my heart freak out.

I hate/love that. It's best on the beach.
