Pinned toot

If I ever get a tattoo, "I live for this shit because I'm a huge nerd" will form the word-wreath border around the central image.

Probably in Tengwar script.

Ten days in . A better day. Cleaned. Threw out & organized. Oldest redecorated her bunk area. Impressed and slightly annoyed it looks cooler than ours.

The kids made music.

Spouse made more space foccacia. Says I can't call it that.

Nine days in . No one's sick. We're working. Teaching the kids. Getting good news from family in other pods.

Having bad dreams. Yelling too much.

More damn snow.

It’s important to remember why the US has the most Covid19 cases of any country in the world.

We aren’t the biggest country that’s affected, or the first, or the densest, or the one with the poorest health care system.

We are the country with the least competent leader.

Do not go to your friend’s house this weekend. Please. Not even if it’s “just one friend,” not even if “we’ll be careful and wash our hands, promise!”

If you're tired of idiotic American leaders who can't lead, check out Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, Chief of Engineers and commanding general of the Army Corps of Engineers, explaining how the US can expand hospital capacity, quickly.

If you want to read one thing that will give you an explanation of where we are, what it means, and what lies ahead, I cannot imagine anyone doing a clearer, more comprehensive, or more even-handed job than did with this.

There's so many people in my life I couldn't bear to see get sick.

Online tonight with the once-a-week long-distance team. A focused two and a half hours... followed by an additional hour of stories about our isolation, advice, support, and just general holding hands through a long, dark night. Needed.

Checking the local map to plan activities.

I admire/envy my kids' ability to totally use up notebooks.

Being stuck in the Hab isnt great, but the stress of going anywhere - even necessary restock at Ohana station - is worse.

And now, The Company complaining our Isolation is hurting profits? I don't have words. (YET. They're on the way.)

**Coronavirus pandemic 'accelerating', WHO warns**

"WHO chief says it took 11 days for the second 100,000 cases to be reported and four days for the third 100,000 cases."

I'm at that wonderful age where sleeping wrong hurts as much as falling off 30 meter scaffold.

So now it's time to play the fun game of "Do I ache from a shitty night's sleep, or do I have radiation sickness?"

Eldest cadet back at . Finally.

Massive drama at intake meant it started with tears and ended with her pulling a contaminated rad suit back on after the detox shower, and having to start all over before we could do proper hugs.

HBO flashed a notification on my phone reading "Welcome to a new dystopia" and I thought it was a breaking news headline.

Less than 24 hours until the eldest is back on the ground here in the mountains. The wait is hard.

Amusingly, HER main focus has been getting permits filed for personal jewelry (nose stud), despite no specialists being authorized on-world right now.

"humans are the real virus" or "this is deserved' are eco-fascist slogans that urge and celebrate the suffering and death of the disabled, poor, and disenfranchised.
