Well, Cayman planned a Nerdfest tonight, because there is a meteor shower. I drove out to Carroll to mett folks, only to find out we were turning right around and going to Ceasar's Creek. We had to wait for it to get dark, then the clouds to go away... we could only see bits of the sky at a time. We say Perseus, Casseopeia (sp?), Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Draco, Cygnus... and a lot more. It was me, Pat, Cayman, Jonathan, Carolyn, Lisa, Rachel (class of 04), and Jacob. Fun times. Very nerdy. Jonathan had one of those high-class laser pointers that reflects off the air particles so you can point at stuff in the sky. Around 12:30 a storm that had gone around us rolled over us, so we got out before it started to rain. We had a list of "top ten things said late at night" but we only got a few down, and I can only remember the first three:
1) "Um, you're stroking me." Jacob to Pat, because Pat was using Jacob as a footrest.
2) "Not in MY mouth!" Me, talking about how the aftertaste of Sun Chips is NOT good to me.
3)"Jacob, you're just furniture." Lisa, because mostly everyone used Jacob as a pillow.
We spent most of the night eating/drinking pop while laying out on blankets and kind of watching the sky while we talked. We took a few chances to check out an astronomy club's telescopes. We talked about band and carroll a little, but mostly it was the college kids talked about drinking, partying, etc. while Pat filed all that away in his brain for college, while Jacob and I just kind of sat there going, "Um... I'll take your word for all that."
All in all, a nerdy and exciting night! =^n.n^=
And it looks like I'm NOT going to King's Island afterall tomorrow. Darn.
