AND I DIDN’T EVEN KIDNAP HIM YOU GUYS.
I MET CHRIS TONIGHT. He was lovely, and when I told him I was using this book for my grad seminars he was really impressed, and concerned about whether the book would be useful—but I assured him that I had already read it twice, and that it was very useful. A quick meeting, because there were so many people there, but a really nice one.
Chris Hadfield goofs around with the girls at Cakeology in the Exchange. The retired astronaut is a worldwide sensation after his exploits in space aboard the ISS. He was in Winnipeg for a book tour and visited a jam-packed News Café for an interview.
I’ve been reading and watching a lot of things about the foods astronauts and cosmonauts eat in space, like how they package it and stuff. I can say that as a starving grad student, I would love a lot of those things. They get peanut M&Ms in space! And that spicy shrimp stuff? Yum.
The only thing I would miss is pop. I don’t know how well Coca Cola would go over in space. All those bubbles, and you can’t burp in space. Can’t be good.

I thought about doing a series of vids recreating everything Chris Hadfield did, except on Earth. But I’m so glad he beat me to it because omg this is funny.
