Being the Continuing Adventures of a Woman and her Trusty Kayak in New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and Beyond.
(with occasional political rants just to keep things lively!)
That's exactly what Kayakboy said this morning, "it's the future!"
Thank you! I was afraid it was just me. Where's my personal jet-pack?
Thanks or the pictures. Someday I'll learn how to roll!
Well, it *is* the title of a sci-fi book.
2001 was too, but somehow that didn't seem quite so Jetsonesque to me. Or maybe I just got used to the sound of it.
I still remember when 1984 seemed impossibly far in the future.At least the oh-oh's are behind us - who wants to live in a decade with a name like that?
Naught:-noun2. zeroHence, I call the last decade the naughties.
It does sound like we should be living in the future, paddling in heated kayaks, which get to the water on our flying cars. It's a little sad seeing how sci-fi writers imagined where we would be in 2010 and where we really are.Still, 2010 is going to be a good year.
Remembering that 2001 featured an orbiting hotel, manned mission to Jupiter, etc.At least we had computers that could play chess by then!Favorite recent quote I ran across, re segue:"It’s hard to believe that only 10 short years ago, a person riding a two-weeled scooter, leaning forward like a mime in the wind, would be considered an unusual, even dorky sight."
It still looked a little dorky in Conan O'Brien's parody of a Mexican telenovella, where he played the part of a mall cop rescuing a bell-ringing senorita in distress.
I was thinking it still looks a little dorky period! :D
