Today I have mostly been. Part 2
Hello Darkness my old friend,
I've come to talk to you again,
At first I found you really awe inspiring,
Maybe even humbling,
But now I just find you dull, dull, dull, dull-dull-dull
But on the upside today after what has felt like an eternity I've finally managed to scrape up enough credits to finally get shot of my old and funky smelling type 7 "flabby" and to buy the ship of my dreams. I'm talking about the cobra mk3..... Only kidding I am now the proud owner of a Faulcon DeLacy Python that I've affectionately christened "Monty". I've also started upgrading all his systems and cargo carrying capacity so I can start raking in some (hopefully) serious moolah from something other than ferrying polymers and basic medicines between the same two systems over and over again.
However buying Monty and starting to outfit him has left me pretty much broke and I'm reduced to (yup, you've guessed it) carrying polymers and basic medicines between the same two systems over and over again.
It's not all doom and gloom in my no-longer funky smelling universe for today I have done something incredibly stupid, I've fell in love. I don't know her name yet but I know she's the one for me. She's the flight traffic controller for Gooch Terminal in the LHS246 system and she's got a voice that just makes me go weak at the knees. I know what you're saying to yourself "but Khelan, how can you be in love with someone you've never even seen or met?". The answer is quite easily, I can just tell that she digs me it's the little things she says over the comms y'know? "Be careful out there commander" "Welcome back commander, it's great to see you again" I bet not every space bum gets messages like that from her. Next time I land at Gooch Terminal I'm gonna find where the flight traffic controllers office is and I'm gonna go up there and sweep her off her feet you'll see, it's destiny man, I can feel it.
Anyway it's about time I wrapped up this log, stay tuned for the next installment of Cmdr Khelan: intergalactic heartbreaker and hero of the LHS246 to Aruru run. But before I go let me give you some of my patented spacefairing wisdom....
Remember kids, if someone offers you an "exotic" pet then make sure that it's not a Trumble, far as I can tell those things are born pregnant and they breed like well ummm Trumbles and pretty soon they'll be eating everything they can find that's edible on your ship including your stash of sugar coated buzz bombs and you really don't want to be stuck out in the black without being full of sugar believe me.
