yesterday, my brand new slingshot 2009 planner told me that there is going to be a total eclipse of the sun on my birthday a mere 7 months from now! what better time than my birthday for my electricity powers to fully manifest. i think that 26 is a fine age for electrical power puberty.
i was a little disappointed to find out today that i won’t actually be able to see the totality of the eclipse, unless i want to go to china. not that i thought that, like in heroes, a solar eclipse is visible in full in every location on the globe simultaneously (and it is high noon in california and japan and new york at the same time). but i was entertaining the thought that as a gift, i would be able to see the eclipse from my roof.
