642 Things to Write About: An Astronaut’s Perfect Day

Captain’s Log

Star date: 20152001

Today was by far and away the most interesting day I’ve had since I’ve been on this space station. Space is truly a glutton’s dream.  This afternoon, I snapped up a dozen Skittles floating past me.  This morning, I swallowed globs of Tang that were floating around.  Willa Wonka doesn’t have anything on this place.

But my favorite past-time has been drawing on Earth.  Using a small window in our lounge area, I grabbed a dry erase marker and drew faces on Earth’s continent.  One time I made South Africa look like George W. Bush. Today, I gave the United States utters and made her look like a cow.

After that, I did somersaults in the air for about twenty minutes, stopping after I got dizzy.  Vomiting on the space shuttle is generally frowned upon.  Besides, the rest of the crew still hasn’t forgiving me for the New Year’s Eve fiasco.  I wish I could tell you what happened.  I’m not sure. I know I had a lot to drink but I guess I blacked out.  I woke up the next morning, dehydrated with a headache the size of the solar system and I was covered in bruises.  Let that be a lesson for everyone: never drink and float around the space shuttle.  You never know what you might bump into.  I don’t.  I can’t remember.
