bring on the valium 'n' veuve, please.
Yo, so I was checking out who's been checking out this site and WHOA, SWEET JESUS, someone from nasa.gov has visited. (Fret not, I don't know who you random cybersurfers are, I just know the domain from whence you interweb surf). So, nasa.gov person, if you ever return, I'd like you to know that I am still entertaining dreams of being an astronaut, despite my limited differential calculus skills. I would also really like to be the first performer on the moon, if you can hook that one up. I am a very awesome lip syncer, fyi.
In the meantime -- greatest news story of the day:
Police Chase Blues Brother Impersonator
CRYSTAL, Minn. Oct. 12, 2004 — Police responding to a call of a convulsing Elvis Presley impersonator soon found themselves in a high-speed chase of another faux celebrity a man dressed as one of the Blues Brothers.
Crystal Police Capt. Dave Oyaas said the bizarre string of events began when officers were called to a veterans hall Monday morning to find a man dressed as Elvis Presley apparently in convulsions.
When the officers approached, Oyaas said the man suddenly jumped up and yelled, "Viva Las Vegas!" before singing show tunes.
At about the same time, two women said another man at the veterans hall dressed as John Belushi's character in "The Blues Brothers" had stolen their car and driven to a nearby airport.
The man led police on a high-speed chase around the airport before officers forced him to stop and arrested him.
"It's one of those things that you stop and scratch your head, and you think that 'Am I seeing what I think I'm seeing?'" Oyaas said.
Oyaas said charges pending against the men could include isorderly conduct, fleeing police and drunken driving.
The men had been drinking together at the VFW before police arrived. Blood tests will show how much, but Oyaas said, "I would venture to say quite a bit."
