I’m Moving To The UK

IT’S OUT OF THIS WORLD
Come Fly With Me

I have got to just drop everything and become a resident of the UK. The opportunities are overwhelming. I might even win a trip into space! It’s true, little ol’ me, in space.

According to Gadling all I have to do is write a simple essay – bingo, off to space. What more could a girl ask? Up there, with a view of the roiling atmosphere, would be about as good as it gets.

Audi & The New Scientist are giving away this trip as a prize for answering a simple question: “What is the best patented invention, and why?” That’s a cinch. I’ve got it made, and I know the perfect answer. The contest is limited to a brief response of 250 words or less – no problem. It’s obvious, I’m going to space.

The program consists of :
* Fly into space, 62 miles (100 kilometers) above Earth
* View the Earth from space
* Experience weightlessness
* Participate in the birth of the space travel industry and inspire future generations of explorers

The space flight company SPACE ADVENTURES is providing the ride. And if you are foolish enough to compete against my essay you can find the application form here.

The trip is planned for 2009, and of course there will be other contestants – I feel sorry for them.

Don’t even bother to ask — I’m not telling. Now all I have to do is get to the airport before you do.
