Self Control or Spaced Out?

I'm not going to blame this on anyone in particular, especially a certain someone whose name starts with "D", but as you all know, I haven't spent very much time with Google Earth recently -- no really, I still haven't finished checking out the rest of Easter Island and certainly you understand that such a thing is a clear demonstration of the epitome of self control? haha

Well, because of D's tip, I had to check out Google Earth's Sky enhancement and found this video at google:

Okay, fine. I'm busy, I'm not going to download Google Earth v4.2(beta) today. (said I to myself). uh-huh

umm... and I need to work on the backlog of emails and other stuff I have.

Then I check out my own igoogle.com page (this link will go to your own igoogle page) where I incidently uh... happen to have a google gadget for Google Earth, and I saw an intriguing small picture of something to do with astronomy, so I clicked on it and OH BOY, my copy of Google Earth phoned home and updated itself pronto! (wink wink wink, I may have had to agree with something and click, but I don't remember!) Then Google Earth opened up with it's renewed interface with little WMAP images scattered around the globe.

Okay, I do still have some semblance of self-control and didn't click any links. Just shut down Google Earth with a sigh. "I'll get back to you later," I tell my eagerly responsive and newly updated Google Earth.

BTW, was too tired last night to stay up for the lunar eclipse. We usually have trouble seeing them from the yard due to all the oak trees in the neighborhood. Too late to go for a drive.

Why, I have no idea what you mean. Leading someone astray is the last thing I would ever do!

Or, consider it payback for that Tetris-clone you linked to. Grr.

As for the eclipse, it happened around sunrise here, and I didn't see it but my husband did on his way to work. Guess I'll have to wait for the next one!
