Encyclopedia Entry of the Moment
LOVE If you really love someone, you want to know what they ate for lunch or dinner without you. Hi, sweetie, how was your day, what did you have for lunch? Or if your mate was out of town on business: How was your trip, did the meeting go well, what did you do for dinner? Jason will stumble home in the wee hours from a bachelor party, and as he crawls into bed I'll pry myself from sleep long enough to mumble, how was the party, how was the restaurant beforehand? The meal that has no bearing on the relationship appear to be breakfast. I can love you and not know that when you were in Cincinnati last Wednesday you had yogurt and a bagel.
--Amy Krouse Rosenthal, from Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life.
Panorama of the Moment
A Quicktime VR panorama of the last men on the moon from the Apollo 17 mission. It's so sad that the space age was the 60s and 70s and we've been marking time ever since.
