If you follow any of my bloggity blogs you may have seen that I've been car shopping. After a month and a half of wheel-less-ness, I have bought a spaceship. Now you may be thinking, "Wow, Jenn. I thought you had a tight budget." And you're right. I was only willing to drop 500 bucks on my last vehicle. It lasted for two years and 35,000 miles. But this time around I wanted an upgrade. Big spender. A whole grand.
To the normal eye, my 93 Mercury station wagon may look like an old crappy car, perfect for big families or surfers looking for a roomy beach car. I am neither of those two things. And my space ship is not an old crappy car. In fact, the whole dashboard is digital. It has hidden lights under the hood and in secret compartments. And it went for its first blast off last night.
I decided to visit Saturn because it became the most attractive planet after Pluto was kicked off the team a couple years ago.
After floating around the planet for a bit I got bored and decided to do some loops around the nearby moons. After a run in with some Klingons (Heghlu'meH QaQ jajvam is what they said to me,) Han Solo and Chewbacca shot down the enemy space shuttle and I hitched my spaceship wagon to the back of E.T.'s bicycle. He dropped me off on the nearby moon, Enceladus. That's where I bumped into a couple groups of scientists.
"We found particles containing sodium salts on this planet!" the scientist to my right shouted. "There must be liquid water underneath!"
"Wow!" I exclaimed. "Time to whip out the alien promotional products and build some hotels on this moon."
"No. No. No," the scientist to my left said as he shook his head. "We found no sodium in our study. Without water there can be no life."
"What a bummer," I replied while handing E.T. ten bucks for the ride. "I was looking forward to turning this little plane t into the next Vegas. There's a free light show 24/7."
"Well fine lady, if our further research confirms that there is life sustaining water on Enceladus we will let you know." the scientist to my right said.
With that, the two scientist teams blasted away in their respective spacecrafts and with hope that a vacation to outer space wasn't impossible, I woke up from my dream and told myself, "Just because your car seats 8 and is amazingly comfortable, doesn't mean you can ditch your wonderful bed at home."
Though I didn't really meet up with those scientists, they really did research the planet of Enceladus and will be doing more tests to confirm or refute the idea that life can be sustained on the moon Enceladus. Check out Thursday's edition of the science journal Nature for a more complete report.
While I wait to hear about the possibility of extraterrestrial life, I'll be getting my spaceship in order with custom auto accessories. I'll also be loading up on promotional apparel because the estimated temperature of Enceladus is a nice and chilly NEGATIVE 307 degrees. We're going to be looking at some snow man aliens sometime soon.
Jenn does not support the use of blasters. I am strictly a light saber girl.
