I want a rocket pack for my birthday

… and some goggles.

But I don’t want to be a rocket man if I have to do this:

(oh, the trans-vestism thing does not bother me. It’s the paint and flour and stuff that I would find terribly annoying. Oh, and I don’t really like to wear lipstick either.)

    I couldn’t help but make this connection:
    “She packed my bags last night pre-flight
    Zero hour nine a.m.
    And i’m gonna be high as a kite by then
    I miss the earth so much i miss my wife
    It’s lonely out in space
    On such a timeless flight

    And i think it’s gonna be a long long time
    Till touch down brings me round again to find
    I’m not the man they think i am at home
    Oh no no no i’m a rocket man
    Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone

    Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids
    In fact it’s cold as hell
    And there’s no one there to raise them if you did
    And all this science i don’t understand
    It’s just my job five days a week
    A rocket man, a rocket man”

    words by Bernie Taupin, and Elton John
