Does this mean I'm going to have to write about astronomy from now on?

Apparently some people think my blog is an alright read. Fools! What confused me though is that they thought this was an astronomy blog. It isn't, or at least it was never my intention for it to be an astronomy blog. I suppose it depends on your definition, but this was supposed to be about what it's like being an astronomer working on Mauna Kea and living in Hawai`i with perhaps the occasional bit of astronomy thrown in.

Anyway, some publication called The Daily Reviewer actually thought my blog was one of the "Top Astronomy Blogs". I have to admit I was a little surprised and when I looked at the list it was 1) nice to be thought of in such good company and 2) thought they'd missed out on astronomy blogs much better than mine. Maybe they just like the pictures.

So here's a picture of the Gemini North Telescope on Mauna Kea taken yesterday evening. Just to keep this on an astronomical topic.

Ok, I meant BLOG of course.;)) Hehe!

Tom said...

I think I would have worked it out! I assume you know what a bog is in British slang? ;)

Protege said...

I am not sure, but I would guess a toilet?;))

Tom said...

Got it in one!

So, do you have a great toilet? Inquiring (Am.) minds want to know.
