As I’m sure you know, the current Cool Thing In The Sky is the Leonids meteor shower. Last night Cody and I joined Rachel and the Germans (they had been watching German Forrest Gump) and we stared into the depths of the universe. Actually, we mostly lay on the grass and said, “I think maybe I might perhaps have possibly seen one! Over there.” And we discussed the catastrophic possibility of the Big Dipper falling onto us from the heavens (threat level: orange! Be very afraid!). And the Germans whistled some opera for us. And a good time was had by all.

P.S. Frances, that falling star song will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Mwah hahaha!
