Moose on Mars

Massive SQUEEEE followed by massive Oh Crap!

So, I just got this email:
Dear Sharon Snyder,

Congratulations, your registration to attend the STS-132 Tweetup on May 13-14 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida has been selected! The two-day event will provide you with the opportunity to speak with shuttle technicians, engineers, astronauts, and managers and to view the launch of space shuttle Atlantis to the International Space Station that is targeted for 2:19 p.m. EDT, May 14. The Tweetup will also include a "meet and greet" session for participants to mingle with fellow Tweeps and the team behind the tweets from @NASA.

To complete your registration, you must:

1. Respond to this e-mail no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT April 23rd to confirm your intent to participate. Registration indicates:
a. You intend to travel to NASA's Kennedy Space Center and attend the two-day event in person. You are responsible for your own expenses for travel, lodging, local transportation, food and other amenities. You are also responsible for your transportation to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
b. You plan to attend activities during both days. Check-in is required May 13 to receive your badge, which will provide you access to the Kennedy Space Center both days. If you do not check in May 13, you will forfeit your Tweetup registration for the remainder of the event. You must plan to attend all planned activities if you want to participate.
c. You have in your possession at all times a valid U.S. driver’s license or government-issued passport that matches the name provided on the registration. Those without proper identification will not be admitted.
d. You acknowledge that you are at least 18 years old.

OMG!! So Freaking Awesome!!!

Until I realize that the check-in May 13th part won't work.

We're currently flying in at 11pm on the 13th. To make it I would have to also take May 13th off work, and change my plane ticket. *sigh* I will check at work tomorrow to see if getting the extra day off work is possible. If it is I will have to see how much it is to change my plane ticket. I'm guessing it would be more than the $56 we save by not having to buy me a causeway ticket though.
When I signed up I never even thought that the two days would be the 13-14th rather than the 14-15th. D'oh! Looking back at the original info it does say May 13-14, but I was so focused on the fact that were already planning to be there launch day that it didn't occur to me that we're not getting there until late on the 13th. Argh. Moose will be so disappointed. :(
