Leonids

November 18th, 2001 § Three comments

My roommate and I went up Page Mill Road last night to see the Leonids. The turnout was amazing. Cars lined the road all the way up to the top of the mountain.

And the meteor shower was spectacular. The meteors came in waves; there would be none at all for a few minutes, and suddenly three would pierce the night all at once. I spent about an hour watching meteors and imagining an indulgent god, tossing fireworks from the heavens for the amusement of his children.

    It was pretty spectacular wasn’t it? I drove up Sand Hill Road and experienced the same thing as you – cars lining the road all the way up the hill!
    I really liked the North Eastern sky – the shooting stars there were a beautiful green!

    Fuck me sideways, pinchy is back! I’ve awaited this day for over a year. And despite you never replying to my mails, Williams, I made you a special Thanksgiving greeting (see attached url).

    That’s truly touching, Rodkin (although not, mercifully, in any way that involves my “special area”).

What’s this?
