Synaptic Ellipsis

Despite all the computations, you could just dance to that rock 'n' roll station…

Quarantine Project: 4/4/20:

No-sew bandanna face mask

Today we made face masks out of bandannas and coffee filters. I kind of wish I lived in an ant country like Finland right now instead of one that is being run by an arrogant narcissist grasshopper. Sigh.

CDC Cloth Face Mask Recommendation & DIY Instructions

Scott wore his to the grocery store and reported that most of the younger people were wearing masks, but older people, such as those who should have been there during senior hours, were in “DGAF Mode”. I think we’re going to be here for a while. Heavy sigh.

I am thankful for deliveries today from East End Brewing and Liberty Pole Spirits. We’ll get through this.

Box Puppet

Today we made a puppet out of materials we had in the house, and then we used it to dramatically lip sync to the Frozen II soundtrack. We’re fine.

Come to me now
Open your door
Don’t make me wait
One moment more

(Actually, don’t do that; I can wait.)

Quarantine Project: 3/27/20


Fortuitously, the Force of Nature starter kit that I ordered on 3/15 arrived today, just as the Method disinfectant spray we’d been using for sanitization ran out. These types of products have been sold out in local stores since the pandemic started. Force of Nature is on the EPA’s list of disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. Also, it’s kind of fun to hit the button on the electrolyzer and watch the science happen.

BTW, if you order your own Force of Nature starter kit via this link, I will get free capsules (no pressure).
