Press Day R-r-r-r-round Up!


5 Comments »

We were awakened this morning around 5:00am by the simultaneous ringing of our phones! It was news people calling us up because this had just hit the stands:

So in love they could float away… which appeared on p. 7 of the NY Daily News, featuring pictures taken at last night’s event!

Later in the day arrived this highly inaccurate article: Couple plan to wed in space from that bastion of credible journalism, the Sun.

A cavalcade of others followed, once the story *really* hit the wires:

Daily Telegraph
Cape Times
Space Daily
UPI
Ad nauseum…

Today’s favorite headline:

Hipster Nerds to have Zero-Gravity Wedding

Someone sure has our number…

    Now there is a satirical blog post inspired by you guys… my hopes that I will get to hear you made fun of on “Wait, wait, don’t tell me” still lives.

    What satirical blog post?

    If we we’re mentioned on “Wait, wait, don’t tell me” we’ll know we’ve really arrived!
