Look! A new galaxy! Isn't it pretty?
Its name is Messier81, and it's a distant (heh) relative of former Edmonton Oilers hockey player Mark Messier.
Last night I fell asleep at 8:30 p.m. Which I needed to do, because I felt like hell. Today I am going Christmas shopping with my mommy, so I'm starting the day with a good breakfast - two Eggo Nutri-Grain waffles, between which lies a thin schmear of natural peanut butter and sliced bananas, topped with a drizzle of butter-lite maple syrup.
Oh, and this story brings new meaning to the phrase "holiday spirit."

"Holiday Spirit?" Oh please. How could anyone believe in such supernatural nonsense? That "spirit" is obviously Messier81. It got its picture in the paper and developed a liking for publicity, that's all. Stupid fame whore galaxy.
It's pretty indeed. I'm such a dork for space stuff.
I get to go shopping with my mommy today too...except I call her Mother and I'm not as excited about it as you are.
My holiday spirit is kinda fizzled out.
I didn't realize it ever burnt bright enough to reach a fizzle state ;)
Every now and again it shimmers briefly.
Tsy, I'm a dork for space stuff as well. I'm the person who wakes up at 2 a.m. just to get a good view of the Leonid meteor shower. And it was worth it.
