Oh, it's February already?  OK, time for an update. 

China did exactly what I thought they would, they tried to blame it all on the US, then got all angry about other stuff, like Taiwan and the Dalai Lama.  Nice to see the Party is still the Party.  The wheels grind slowly.

In happier news, I'm off to Florida this Friday to watch a space shuttle launch!  This means I won't be throwing my usual Super Bowl party, but never fear all you rabid football fans out there, other arrangements have been made.....  I, meanwhile, will be watching the big game from the awesomest sports bar [livejournal.com profile] jet_der_hund and I can find in Orlando (assuming the launch goes up on Sunday...otherwise we'll be in the awesomest sports bar in Kennedy Space Center since we have to be on site at 1030 the night before the launch).  About the launch.... this is something I've wanted to see since I was old enough to know what the space shuttle is.  I'm fully expecting I won't be able to sleep on Thursday night before my flight.  If there is anything left in this world that will make me into a little kid again, this is it.  Well, a little kid with a really big camera and several lenses... I have no idea how to photograph this thing, it's going to be a night launch essentially, and I don't know anything near enough about night photography for my liking.   Jet is, I think, bringing a Nikon with a Long Lens, so I'm hoping that he'll be so busy with that that I'll be able to use his Canon white lens? Pretty please? With a cherry on top? =^_^=
