most of us probably don't take UFOs too seriously.. in Roswell they definitely do..
we didn't actually stay for the parade since it wasn't until 9 pm but we got into the UFO museum before the hordes of people arrived & I got a bunch of free stuff at the airfield where several planes were on display..
just to give you an idea of how much the town revolves around the promotion of these theories, here are a few pics..
a poster at the space-themed McDonalds (there was no way around the glare) a local cafe near the UFO museum (I did get shots of each panel along the building so sooner or later they'll be on my website) and a rather humorous display inside the museum
if I'm still around next year I want to stay for the parade since the strangest clothing additions I noticed outside the community theatre presentation were alien-shaped sunglasses & alien antennae.. those aren't so great for pictures..
somewhere in between Elkhart General Hospital & the New Mexico Brain Institute the MRI films of my brain have gone missing. UPS has a name that no one at NMBI recognizes & a delivery date of June 12th. Tomorrow I will have proof of delivery in my hands & be on my way to the NMBI to try and discover where my brain is. Otherwise I have to pay around $100 for EGH to make new films. How annoying.
got back from Carlsbad today.. saw the caverns but not the bats due to two supercells & much lightning in close proximity to the site.. saw the living gardens & the flume & tested my new digicam.. some aspects I'm thrilled with, like the macro ability compared to my old camera, other aspects not so much..
but alythe, I took this picture for you.. also took some for beowulfalive but the tarantula just wouldn't stand still, so those are really out of focus.. :P
but yeah, had fun.. got sunburned (of course).. would like to go back when there are fewer people infesting the caverns...
Soooo.. Dr. Nykkit was absolutely correct, in addition to everything bumbling around in my head, I have hypo-thyroidism. Which means I have to try & get up earlier so my pill can absorb before I eat. At least half an hour before I eat, and I hate mornings. But, it means that I should be able to take off some weight & maybe my hair will get some of its thickness back & hopefully I'll generally feel better all around. Wheee..
there are so many things to say about this weekend, so many emotions.. some amazing, some painful.. but I think it all turned out okay, or at least I hope it will
the newly-weds are perfect together.. I only hope I can be so lucky someday
27 people for Pirates III, can anything beat that? maybe trying to swing with the nykkit or meeting the baby for the first time.. or holding a priest's collar & wondering what my expression looked like since everyone else broke out in hysterics..
I slow danced with a woman, four men & a baby in the middle.. whoever took the picture must post it somewhere & then let me know where it is please.. :)
I keep learning more about myself.. maybe this whole mental issue will make it possible for me to find a way to stop screwing up my life & actually make something of it.. I just hope it won't be too late
to all of my friends who made it: I love you dearly & thank you for all the love you've shown me.. for those of you who didn't make it, I wish you had & I love you too
to those who don't really know me that well but were there for me too, especially R & J, thank you.. if someone who knows what that refers to could let me know how to contact them, I would appreciate it..
to my optimism (who will likely never read this) you know how I feel so I will do my best not to keep repeating myself.. & yes, I do know how you feel, at least I think I do.. & I understand.. just remember, I am me.. I am changing.. I am volatile at times.. and you balance me.. it's the hedgehog's dilemma.. the closer you are, the more it hurts, the more frightening it is to open up
there is so much more.. so much.. I just can't put it into words
I will say this though.. I never ever thought I would regret having to leave MN
