Seeing as I really don't write in my journal anymore, I might as well write an entry on here. Maybe I'll just print off this page and paste it in the old journal. So anyways, yesterday was about one of the craziest days I've ever had. I didn't get much sleep the night before and I was coastin' on fumes even at 6:30 in the morning. I just had to stop in and get myself a Diet Rockstar to help me get going. I was driving west on I-80 when I saw one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. There, floating about 100 feet off the ground was this shiny silver tube. It was just hovering there. It wasn't moving at all, and I had to do about a 20-take while driving at 70 mph. I've never been one to give much thought to UFOs and aliens, but after seeing that thing, I really started to question myself.
I got into the office and I started to hear the buzz about the a UFO flying around the city. I knew I wasn't crazy...well at least not certifiable (yet.) I stood there in one of the conference rooms watching this huge ass blimp-like thing maneuver ever so carefully around the federal building. That was a little sketchy...this mysterious airship making circles around the fed bldg. Hmm. Anyway, this ship moved with such precise movement, that it looked almost fake. It would turn at a right angle, and then stop on a dime. So robitc, it was a little creepy. We couldn't see how it was being propelled, though we looked as best we could. One of my co-workers, "Craiger" calledone of the local new stations, and he said they acted like he was truly certifiable. Who laughed last Craiger? You my friend. It almost touched down on 200 South for a moment, then it lifted straight in the air and flew over our 24-floor building. About a dozen of us ran over to the other side to watch where it went. It slowly began to descend and soon vanished behind a parking garage. After the suspense nearly killed me, I ran to the elevator togo investigate. Naturally, there were five people in there with me and they all were stopping on floors before the lobby. (Damn Murphy's Law.) As I rounded the corner, there it was. This massive silver zeppelin sitting there. This other lady and I struck up a conversation, and she said tat she had seen it too and had the same WTF thoughts I did. I asked her to take a picture of me with it to show the boys in the office what it was. The lady I was with said she would stay with it until the guy who owned it came to pick it up. I got back showed a couple people the picture and we all had a good laugh.
Towards the end of the day, Gadd told me to send the picture into KUTV because they had all these pictures of the blimp flying around, but none like the silly one I took. So I thought why not. So I sent it in, and last night, I saw my picture in the paper and my name all over the internet. All from a little picture I took on my ancient cell phone. A reporter from the SL Trib called me last night to ask me about the day's events. So funny. Now that I think of it, I think I have some other photos that I thought I erased that I sent to that lady...stay tuned.
