Packing For Mars

I'm reading Packing For Mars by Mary Roach, and it's just fascinating.  She's a great science writer - easy to understand, funny, with a good sense for interesting details and asides.  This is all about the details and minutiae of space travel.  What sort of interpersonal problems occur? How do our organs react to zero gravity?  What happens if you throw up in your space suit? Etc.  It's great.  I'm about halfway through it.

Also, I got an awesome black lace dress for New Year's Eve from Ann Taylor Loft for $30!  It was originally $98.  Good deal.  I can't find a picture online, so I'll post one of me wearing it later.
