interviewing the Fatal Attraction Asshatronaut

Lisa Marie NutbarLadies Home Journal has a telling interview with the Astronaut Amok who made the news yesterday by swathing herself in a wig, trenchcoat and Depends and driving a thousand miles to try to kidnap her romantic rival. A close read is very rewarding; you can see the control-freakery and the huge, lumbering ego in their embroyonic states.

Via Gawker.

that you can find a way to accomplish a goal that’s not clearly down the path you originally planned, but down a different path.

So I’d say in general, I like to do a wide variety of things, and probably like most people I liked it better if I was good at something. But if I wasn’t, I either worked harder to get good at it, or tried to find something else that could accomplish the same goal…

  1. The very fact that someone would wear diapers to reduce – any down time – to their destination; is disturbing; and probably indicates a mental snap. I mean, when I was younger, I used to drive from Maryland to Tampa. It’s an 18 hour drive; and I’d do it straight through. I never even considered the option of wearing depends!!! That’s craziness. I thought it was disturbing enough that I kept spare, empty bottles in the car (if you get my drift). But I’m a guy, and we can do piggish things :P

  2. If she hadn’t snapped before, no doubt the publicity woulda done it. She’ll never fly for the US military again: of that I have no doubt. She will probably end up serving a prison sentence, and if she is lucky it’ll be in a civilian prison.

  3. GAWD! How frigging sick and pathetic is that?
    Diapers!
    She looks like I did after chemo.
    Let’s hope the only planes she’s flying in the future are paper ones in a prison cell.

  4. I don’t get this woman…all her success and she throws it away for a guy….and the whole depends thing…ew….talk about flying over the cuckoos nest. And isn’t the woman she was planning to kidnap married?

  5. No, that woman was single. SHE’s the married one, although the clock is ticking on that one, for sure.

    What’s weirdest about this is she said that she wasn’t in a romantic relationship with the guy. I wonder if she was just some creepy crush-holder or if they were fuck buddies; I would suspect the former, and if so, poor guy.

  6. Diapers is nothing. As an ex-trucker and soldier, I will totally fail to regale you with some of the expedients I have heard of people resorting to. And at least she could keep her waste with her, rather than scat-tering it all over the highways.

    David Sidaris happens to have tried out, hilariously, one of the more complex but theoretically less-rude ones. Darren Barefoot had this video before I stole it.

  7. You will forgive me for not clicking through to your Sedaris video. Your Barefoot link links back to this blog, however, so I shall let it stand. Maybe I can absorb some Technorati juice through it.

  8. Guys & (it seems mainly) Guyesses

    How about a little sympathy for this puir wee lassie

    As Charlotte observes in (the Film of) Pride & Prejudice :

    “Love makes Fools of us all” … even Eagles, on accasion (which is not admitted)

    Your obedient servant etc
