I like this story! I think it's cool that the astronaut part is a daydream of sorts.
OGR 23/01/07Hey Noah,Yep, I think you're onto something here - even more so if the picture in the gallery is this one!https://www.moma.org/learn/moma_learning/vincent-van-gogh-the-starry-night-1889Not completely sold on the 'double daydream' element - I think you could be more surreal than this. So, the supervisor throws the girl the vacuum cleaner and we here, in a sort of Charlie Brown style - the nagging and moaning of the supervisor - "you're never amount to anything etc". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ss2hULhXf04Instead of using the hoover to vacuum everything up, how about she just sits astride it, presses the on-button, and we see her rocket up out of shot, the bottom of the hoover spewing out fire and flames and 'adios!'
