Bumbling Bookworm

Stumble-scooting.

Law student, Canadian, Tolkienite, Sherlockian, history buff and generally clueless.

More than mildly in love with Karl Urban and Jeremy Renner. I'm sure they're thrilled.

So pro at procrastination.

I was sitting in a high school midterm 27 years ago today when a kid in my class leaned over and whispered, “the Space Shuttle blew up.”  I couldn’t believe what he was saying, he’d heard it on his walkman radio.  I was stuck in my exam and I had no way to figure out what was happening.  We had early dismissal that day and I went straight home.  I sat down in front of the TV for the next 8 hours flipping between Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, and Peter Jennings trying to find out how is happened.  I saw the shuttle blow up over and over and over, it was surreal.
