    MagAO-X 2020A Stay at Home Day 14: The melting pot of westerns
    One thing I am getting out of this quarantine is exploring many recipes and using my kitchen hardware more often than making weekly meal preps. I purchased a 6-quart enameled cast iron dutch oven back in February and have used it once so far to make beef and red lentil chili. I’m very excited I ...

    Being confined at home can make anyone a little bit Genghis Khan, as my cat can attest. Today’s Song of the Day is “Genghis Khan” by Miike Snow. Please enjoy the video, below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_SlAzsXa7E “Genghis Khan” by Miike Snow

    MagAO-X 2020A Stay At Home Day 11: Happy Easter and Passover!
    I don’t know about all of you, but for me all of the days have started to blur together. In the mornings I find myself thinking: what activity could I do today so that today is different from yesterday (and the day before that, and the day before that…)? Luckily for me, yesterday night I ...

    MagAO-X 2020A Stay at Home Day 10: On memes, cats, and the merits of ISO 7010 Registered Safety Signs
    When every weekend is spent at home having a mild time, one must find one’s own diversions. After the cooking is done and the phone calls to friends and family concluded, I scroll idly through the daily output of internet meme-makers. This usually provides a few minutes of distraction, eventually running aground on reposts ...

    MagAO-X 2020A Stay at Home Day 9: Space + Beer + Zoom + Couch
    Hello again! Seems like my first blog post was way more than 9 days ago, but that’s the way of things now. March was a hell of a year and April is shaping up much the same. Most days start with a thought like “Wait, is it Tuesday?”. But as I ...

    “Move to Europe!”, they said. “It’ll be an adventure!”, they said. “Think of all the places you can travel to!” (I know you’re not supposed to end with a preposition, but whatever. It’s the end of the world and all that.) But now, the world has shut down, the city outside ...

    MagAO-X 2020A Stay At Home Day 7: Poopie Suits & An Ancient Mystery
    I was actually aghast that Logan’s post last week was the very first appearance of the Poopie Suit on this fine blog. After nearly 8 years and more than 560 blog posts, it’s utterly ridiculous that a surface sailor posted the first poopie suit pic. She probably wasn’t even wearing tennis shoes. So let’s ...

    MagAO-X 2020A Stay at Home Day 6: Reconnecting with the Past
    Hello to all the wonderful blog readers out there. Although I am a long time member of the team, y’all don’t know me yet as this is my first post to the XWCL blog. So who am I? That’s a good question that I am still trying to figure out. But anyway…I (think I) am ...
