So what are you doing? I'm putting my telescope on the sidewalk and probably not blinding the kiddos.

Seriously though the kiddos that were under-whelmed with the impact of Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter in '94 will be back for this.

If I can get shed of space planners and project managers by the calculated hour, I'll be camping in a lovely spot in Orygun that is just underneath, if you will, totallity at about 10:30 in the morning. Taking the Celestron and the Canon along with appropriate filters. Oh, and bacon. About 2 pounds of pepper bacon. And Scotch. And this thermos.

And that's all I need...

I'm picking out a thermos for you
No ordinary thermos will do

And so on.

How much do you want to bet that the space planner/project manager 'manages' to fuck this one up for me?

300 Quatloos that the space planner fucks my plans to witness the only total eclipse I ever had a chance to see!

Yep. Unbeatable combination. And if I shoot enough photos, maybe one will actually be in focus...

Thank you sir.

They did it to me, so now everyone must suffer, thermos or no thermos. :twisted:

Stoopid Anecdote Warning: I gave six months notice I was going to the First Annual World Skydiving Convention (Quincy, IL, 1986) and the "planners" said no problem. Two weeks before the convention, they ask me to stay and finish the project that had gone way over schedule due to stuff beyond my control. I offered that if they could reschedule the convention, I would stay. They said, you might not have a job when you get back. I said OK, and they asked how long are you going to be gone. I said two to four weeks. They said call us when you get back. I was gone five weeks, including a visit to the World's Fair in Vancouver (Expo 86). Eight thousand miles on my DeLorean, which in hindsight turned out to be a very comfortable car for cross country. I called them when I got back and two weeks later I was back on the payroll. Seems they needed the very special skills I have.

BWAHAHAHA... Love it. However, if you have (had) a DeLorean, you could afford to off the payroll for an extended period.

I continue to work for that day.

It should be fairly (amazing, awesome naa...) interesting even there. Hell I'm about 100 miles (convert to metric like it fucking matters) south of the center line. Even still if it works I shall see the darkest eek-lips of my life.

If not there will be a hurried transport of astronomical devices into the house.

I fully expect rain.

Who me a pessimist?

Yeah, well hell I'm not expecting something so dramatic. Just a light drizzle.

Oh and maybe a tornado or two.
