Fathers Day with added Spacecraft Impact.
While waiting for SMART-1 updates, I thought I'd tell you about my day. Today is/was Fathers Day in Australia. I got to lounge in bed while the boys "assisted" my beloved Bettdeckrerschnappender Weisle in making muffins. You can see the image below, I'm using it as an illustration in my lecture on food additives and toxicity (seriously, just redid the slides). I also was presented with a Dr Who collectors set, part of which can be seen in the image above. It's a bit thought provoking that Smallest One can't name colours, but can say "Dr. Who".
Breakfast at the astrobloggers. It looks yummy (yes, that's a giant Preying Mantis either hugging or battling a monkey, the significance eluded me too).
The we went down to the foreshore and did some feral weed removal with dune care, retired home and the boys, Dr. Who and I watched SMART-1 crash into the Moon via the ESA webcam. The we watched Prehistoric Park on TV before I sent them to bed (Middle One wants a Microraptor as a pet), and checked on the crash reports.
Is it possible to have a better day?
Haha I got my Dad a Doctor Who DVD as well! Except it wasn't the complete set, just part of it. He spent the rest of the night out in the shed engrossed. At one point I walked out there in time to see a giant werewolf on the screen :)
