@redrover: I'm missing the Olympics for this?

Matissta

@redrover: No welcoming commitee. Sigh.

Flannista

@redrover: then again, I'll miss the political conventions and the election.

@redrover: no gold medal?! I totally stuck that landing.

PEACEsista

@redrover: one giant step for ... machine-kind.

Flannista

@redrover: ALERT! ALERT! can't find contact lens.

Sista C

@redrover: I'm really om a backlot at Universal Studios.

Flannista

@redrover: "om"?! so now the whole Milky Way knows my mantra.

[See Sista C's 9:27 a.m. tweet.]

[By the way -- here's how Red Rover landed. Actually, it's pretty astounding.]

@redrover: what do I have to do to get a drink around here?

half-a-sista

@redrover: NASA, found the beach. Where's the ocean you promised?

@redrpver: Ready to roll. Over and out.

On landing, the spacecraft killed the only Martian feline on the planet. As Curiosity panned the area it discovered the dead animal and tweeted:

@redrover: Curiosity killed the cat.

@redrover: Rollin', rollin', rollin', keep those dogies rollin'. Rawhide!

Seems Curiosity watched Rawhide reruns all the way to the red planet.

@redrover: I'M THE LTLE OLD LADY FM PASADENA

And listened to the entire Beach Boys catalogue of music and Tina Turner too.

@redrover: Rollin', rollin', rollin on the planet now.

Flannista

@redrover: just ran into someone who calls himself "Jimmy Hoffa". Important?

Matissta

@redrover: I'm bored.

Peter

@redrover: looks like West Texas, I hope any life I find is not a Cowboys fan.

Flannista

@redrover: damn, forgot the map!

half-a-sista

@redrover: red rover, red rover, we dare the Martians to come over.

Matissta

@redrover: Not a fan of the red.

Peter

@redrover: No signs of intelligent life, it figures the only channel aliens can receive on a red planet is Fox news.

@redrover: Indicators of life at a level slightly higher than in the Colorado Rockies' dugout

Flannista

[You're a mensch, Peter.]

[By the way, it appears that Curiosity Rover does INDEED have an ACTUAL Twitter account. What follows is its first ACTUAL tweet (thank you, singlemommasista):]

HOLY. F*CKING. SH!T. I AM ON MARS.

[I kid you not.]
