(News 5 Cleveland)   So it's the first weekend where a large portion of the USA is under shelter in place orders. How is everyone spending their Friday night? Subby is 5 fingers into his bourbon and watching Animaniacs with the kids before bedtime. You?   (news5cleveland.com) divider line

Halfway into a bottle of port and building a Lego monstrosity with a four year old. It's my safe place.

Ours are currently running around outside with the Nerf guns we got today. Long day... the morning was spent doing their schoolwork, afternoon was a roadtrip along the lower Columbia, and now it's "run yourselves ragged" time before dinner and our usual Friday night cheesy 80s videos.

/Hopefully followed by a long night of unbroken sleep.

Sitting in my backyard drinking whiskey, smoking pot, and talking with my husband. He had a long week in NYC. Because of his IT skills, all employees can work from home.

2 fingers into ... something and watching Yesterday
I did get my Blues Deluxe (the non-reissue) working again - dirty pots
The other one is sick and for some reason has a Randall speaker.  That one's going to become an Overdrive Special HRM 50 with an EVM-12L I have lying around.

Going to work tomorrow because "essential". Dealing with clients 70+ who insist on going out for bullshiat reasons. Dealing with clients laughing at us for asking them to take the simplest precautions.

One guy told me devil worshippers are responsible and the proof is in Hillary's emails that proves this is a hoax. I have to deal with people who don't believe this is a real thing and therefore are not taking any measures to protect themselves or me.

One of my coworkers has been out for a week, has had a fever this whole time and still can't get tested for Covid.

I'm freaking pissed. I'm worried I'm going to get sick. I was asked to postpone my vacation I'm taking next week because people are dropping like flies. I told them no because I plan on locking myself in my house and hopefully maybe a tornado will show up in new Jersey and take me and my house away to a place where the government gives a farking shiat and people aren't brainwashed idiots that are endangering me and my family.

I dont like edibles, they just give me headaches.  I stocked up on bud, but then my allergies kicked in.  So it waits for me, calling my name...smelling soooo good.

I"m currently sitting in my car at a local park, killing time until I feel it's safe to go home with the things I bought while shopping today.  There are a few people walking their dogs. The petting zoo is closed  but the barn is open  and I can see a cow and two  horses. No goats in sight. No llamas, either. They must be in the  barn

I finally got some bananas (after four unsuccessful attempts last weekend)
Yay. Still no potatoes.

I'm about a six-pack into a quiet evening.
Figure this is a good time to teach myself slide guitar, never really been my strong suit. Been working on my golf swing quite a bit at home (mostly). Not sure why, but all the golf courses are open around here. You get outside, fresh air, exercise and no one within 300yds of you.

Ho lee crap. I wish you all the best.

I neglected to mention that I'm delaying going home right now because I live with my elderly mother, and I don't want to infect her in case my purchases are contaminated. I'm going to wipe them down before I go into the house.

Applied for unemployment and tried to downgrade my phone service, but Sprint's chat keeps kicking me out before or maybe right as a representative finally hops on. :-/

So I ordered a bunch of books off eBay. I got a lot of 13 Michael Crichton books for $30, shipping included.

I'll be watching Curiosity Stream until they arrive.

I'm at home getting messages from coworkers about the people who are out sick or are believed to already have tested positive for CoVID-19.  At the same time, I'm reading about the Peace Corps basically being dismantled and the motherfarkers were getting intelligence reports in January about how bad this shiat was going to be.

If it wasn't for the Xyzal that I've been taking for 2 weeks to keep my allergies at bay and avoid looking/sounding sick at work, I would probably be suffering alcohol poisoning right now.

Good on you for doing that, good on your mom for staying inside. I know it's tough for the elderly to be housebound. It's a death sentence for some, but it's so much worse outside right now. It's so frustrating to see these old folks come in and scoff at us for trying to keep distance or take offense to us wiping everything down after them but it's for their protection and ours.

We have this one customer who comes in EVERY DAY to check his balance. We can see his transaction history when we do this and can see that he's been to 4 large retailers and the groceryv store every day this week. But what can we do?

It's heartbreaking. This whole week has felt like we're mourning people who haven't died yet. And not knowing if we're carrying this virus to them is just tearing me apart.

I had to go to Target to pick up a prescription for myself, got bananas, carrots, and applesauce at a nearby grocery store for Mom, and went to CVS to buy eye ointment for her. She has a severe dry eye condition caused by Sjogren's syndrome. I ordered several of the daytime ointments she uses online, but the nighttime ointments were out of stock on all of the websites I checked. Luckily, I found some at CVS.

Our favorite Mexican place is trying their best to stay in business so we got to go.  I also bought a pitcher of margaritas to go. It's illegal (Georgia) but the state is looking the other way. The bar next door is shut down entirely.  It hurts seeing businesses we like hurting.  I flipped everything out of the boxes and washed my hands 10 times. This sucks. Now, I'm drinking coors light and watching Simpsons reruns.

I'm thinking of digging out my sewing machine...got the "pattern" online and have some appropriate fabric and some elastic already on hand to make some masks for the medical community.   I gave up my office/sewing room for my granddaughter when she moved in.   She has physically left the building, but a lot of her stuff is still here.  So I'll have to dig out the fabric from storage downstairs and launder it, then find a place to set up the machine.

All that will take longer than the actual sewing.

Though tonight I just want to relax.  Took care of all outside business today, hopefully for a week at least.

I'd actually been vaguely interested in Curiosity Stream.  Like I wanted to know more about it.  I'm sure there's a word for that or something.

Anyway I am sitting here behind my desk, regretting my decision to take advantage of my forced isolation brought on by both plague and badly sprained ankle to cut back on my drinking.  I'll probably break down and order another shipment of booze, but not tonight at least.  I may be bored and in pain but at least my liver is getting a night off.

Meanwhile, Steam is telling me that Black Mesa is still installing.  Staring at it does not seem to make it go any faster. I guess I'll find out what CuriosityStream has.
