Stephen and Mallory and the cats are relaxing in the sun before lunch, with Kepler sitting majestically under the sunlight streaming in and with Sagan disappearing behind the blinds to get as much sun as possible.

On a related note, they bought back some food from Chick-fil-A for lunch, where the person taking his order misspelled Stephen's name as 'Stevein', which is a pretty bizarre spelling of his name.

Anyway, Stephen and Mal have been feeling good about their work. Mal is on the way to finishing her next painting, while Stephen is getting closer to finishing Fallout for good.

For dinner, they put their new rice cooker to the test by making brown rice with the timer function. They also try out the function that increases the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the rice, or as Stephen puts it, the Germ Amino Acid Bran Acid. It finishes right on time and the brown rice is fluffy and cooked well (and wasn't burnt or soggy).

In other news, Stephen and Mal are finally starting on a new show - Avatar: The Last Airbender. They received it (twice!) in VlogMail a while back and are excited to watch it.


  • The last show Stephen and Mallory watched was Fullmetal Alchemist in 2017. They finished watching it in July 2017, meaning that they have not watched shows in a year.
