the guys down in houston pretended the wake-up transmission had a snooze button three times this morning. i unstrapped myself from the bunk at 0600 and drank my goop breakfast from a tube. did another couple tube things and shaved for the day. saw my tenth sunrise through the portal - might get to take a walk outside later on. did some neat science experiments after chatting with school kids down below. gotta say, exercising up here is nothing like flapping around a swimming pool. more goop for lunch! time for that walk: suit - check, tether - check, cyanide pill - check! when i get back, there'll be time for computer maintenance on the 386 and more goop for dinner. Strap into the bunk at 2000 and hope to dream about deep sea submarining or spelunking. good night/dawn/night/dawn/night...zzzzz.
