In the presence of Sunshine.

I've got Sunshine and she's got me. Sometimes, I write, but not nearly enough. Sometimes, I'm smart, but not nearly enough. Always, I am here for you.

I just finished Packing for Mars by Mary Roach and it was wonderful, entertaining, and educational. She covers a wide number of topics on space travel from food and hygiene, to sex and “elimination” (if you know what I mean). Packing for Mars was interesting the whole way through and I highly recommend it.

Also, for those of you who watched Felix Baumgartner’s space jump today, Mary Roach interviews him in this book and she goes into a lot of the dangers that are associated with a jump like this. Very interesting stuff.
