Well it's a good theory anyway...

Yeah, behind on reading again. I have a pretty good excuse this time though. Space shuttle! w00t!

Every day in Florida was just so full that I didn't have the time or energy to read the internets or post on the internets. My LJ reading is now at skip=400. I shall be doing much skimming. Sorry, y'all. I know all your posts are full of little pearls of wisdom & nuggets of awesome, but I just don't have time to catch up.

So anyway. Florida = awesome. There was some bad w/the trip (don't even get me started on the @$$^# car rental place! or Delta!) but it was mostly full of all kinds of win.

The launch was about as perfect as can be. But you know what? I've seen video. It was loud. I don't remember that!!!!! I was so transfixed watching it that I have absolutely no recollection of the sound. How weird is that? And I was even expecting the noise. But no, complete silence in my memory of the launch. Freaking weird.

Now I want to go to the last two launches. :)

I got to swim in the ocean for the first time and loved it. I also got to see an alligator! Actually, I saw THREE of them! No pics though. The one that would have been an awesome pic, it probably would have been a bad idea to park & get out of my car. Not to mention that they didn't want us making any detours while driving in the KSC restricted space. Silly security rules!

So yeah, I took some pictures. I've got some of them up on Flickr, but no shuttle ones yet. I'm going to process the ones of her on the pad for the RSS retraction tonight. Don't know if I'll get to the launch tonight though.

That is truly fascinating about the noise...maybe it was just so loud it couldn't register in your brain?

My best guess is that it was actually because of my ADD & the hyper-focus I get from it sometimes. If I'm doing something else and Rick starts talking to me it doesn't register that he's talking at first and when it does, I usually missed the beginning of what he said.
