05:51 pm - Voyage to the Planet Eris
I looked up from the hammock and saw the crescent of the waxing moon still very visible in the bright blue sky overhead. Watching the moon above me, I had a sudden sense of my place amid the mysterious inner workings of the universal clock. As I rocked in my hammock, the earth was spinning like a giant gyroscope as it orbited the sun. Out there beyond the blue, the distant invisible planets and the Milky Way moved with us.

It never seemed so grand and mysterious in a classroom. Maybe teachers ought to approach astronomy from a hammock on a deserted beach as well as from the lenses of giant telescopes. The earlier in life we know we are part of something magical and mysterious, the better off we are.
-A Salty Piece of Land, p. 433
Eris' mother now has her own heavenly body. I can't wait until Eris herself does. I'd totally lead *that* expedition. . .

You know, not to insinuate that Eris' body isn't already heavenly. Because, like, it totally is.

She's a hottie.

Have you ever seen Eye of the Beholder with Ewan McGregor and Ashley Judd? The main character's name is Joanna Eris. I watched it the other day and was like...OMG...Eris. And then the movie made much more sense. I recommend that you watch it.

I'm totally renting that when I get ahold of The Man Who Would Be King!

The Man Who Would Be King!
Sean Connery at one of his all time greats!

And your right about the hottie-ness!

A Pollux on all of you confusing names!

Yeah, but it's Nix, not Nyx (so as not to be confused with some asteroid by the name of Nyx). But if Nyx is night, then wouldn't all the stars (and asteroids, or "star"-oids) be part of Nyx? Nix on all of it -- I'm sooooo confused!
