When I stepped off the plane at HSV last Sunday, I felt as if I had walked into a steamcloud. The first few days in Alabama were in the mid-90s, and walking outside was like being cloaked in a blanket of radiation and water vapor. Thankfully it rained yesterday so it was a much cooler 75, and today promises to be a lovely sunny 77 for the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) family picnic, which all the interns will be going to. They're making us all wear our red MSFC intern shirts, which say "FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION" on the back... *puzzlement*
|MSFC "World's Flattest Floor"|
Sometimes in the evenings we've had program-wide fun events. This week we had a spaghetti dinner one night, we went out to eat as a group last night, and there was a barbecue on Thursday. So those things are fun. Last night six of us hung out in my suite and played telephone pictionary, with mixed results. My favorite was when "A carton of spoiled milk is shunned by all the other food in the fridge" turned into "An angry strawberry and pizza glare at a flaming flashlight."
It's 9:05 AM and I need to eat before meeting for the MSFC picnic (which goes from 10 to 3). I echo Anna's plea that people post - reading this blog is how I deal with LMF-withdrawal over the summer.
