Obso1337 Super has downloaded Google Earth onto his work PC, and everyone's been geeking out over it. He mentioned that Google is coming to the Valley. I had to ask again, because I thought mine ears didst deceive me. He confirmed. Google. Here.

My resulting shriek of glee had the entire workplace staring at me weird, because the rest of them didn't find it that overwhelming. (That, and when I shriek, it can be piercing.) I'm told by friends that strong positive emotions transform me. It must be startling to someone outside of me, because I'm expecting it and I'm still startled that when I'm shocked with something that thrills me, I explode a little.

Stressy College Chick suggested that I apply there. Sadly, I don't think I qualify. But Darkside might. I've forwarded the job postings to him. It would be so spiffykeen to have a best friend working for Google.

But.
Local.
Google.
Dude.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
