Misread as "Don't forget to change out of your horse pajamas..."
I took a drink; I'm better now.

I'm gonna socialize with my recliner, tv, and a shiat load of beer.  It's going to be great.

While it might feel less sociable, avoiding shared grazing plates is a simple tactic to limit the risk of virus transmission. It might even stop your friend scoffing all the dip.

If your friend doubts the existence of dip then he may be on PCP. You should get him to the emergency room.

As an introvert in a house full of introverts it is shocking to see so much importance placed on socializing and appearance.

People act as if they need salons and bars. These things are solidly in the realm of "frivolous wants" as far as I'm concerned.

OK, I'll change out of my house pajamas and into my good going-out pajamas before I head over to Wal Mart. to get my Dale Earnhardt collector plates.

The double dipper should lose a hand.
 
2020-05-22 2:44:39 PM  
I'm not getting dressed up its not like I go to Walmart

/ever

So, question. Are "house pajamas" different from "sleeping pajamas".
 
2020-05-22 2:51:19 PM  
As long as I can still wear my pink fuzzy bunny slippers.
 
2020-05-22 2:54:05 PM  
Does a t-shirt, and sweat pants count as pajamas?
 
2020-05-22 3:02:45 PM  
I really have gotten lazy with respect to getting dressed prior to leaving the house these days...commando with sweatshorts has been my go-to.  The breeze on my package is glorious.
 
2020-05-22 3:10:14 PM  
That works if you wear pajamas.

I wish I could find it shocking, but it's all I expect.  I don't remember the daily thinkpieces on how emotionally draining it is for introverts to have to tolerate random people all day, every day.  I'm genuinely fortunate to be able to work from home; self-isolation has been a vacation for me.

Shower.

Rinse.

Repeat.

Always Repeat......

I agree with you, but don't forget it's ok for people to like what we don't like.

I guess that depends on where you sleep

Don't forget, this is coming from a country that has posted days with zero new cases.  My county in the U.S. hasn't even posted a decrease in daily new cases yet, only a slowdown in growth.  I'm fine keeping my D&D group online for the foreseeable future, but my elderly relatives are getting rather testy about my refusal to regularly come over and cook for them & take them places.  I get that it sucks going from 90% shut in to 100%, but they tick every vulnerable box there is.  If something happened to them because I infected them, I'd never be able to live with myself.

Interesting that its safe to open, but the governors mansion and capitol building are still closed to tours.

Does he talk. Just. Like. This??!

Good point.

a mask does not guarantee protection from infection. There is no harm in wearing one

why do they do this absolutist b******* with masks?

Why didn't they do with clinking glasses?

It's just weird

I see the elbow bump is recommended.  Which is also where you are told to bury your sneeze.

I've pretty much been wearing the same pair of Columbia pants, except on wash days, for the duration.

I see no reason to change this unless I can find a couple more pair of them.

I have signed up and have been getting The Conversation emails. I like them.

But yoga tights are OK, right?

Does this mean I need to start wearing pants again?

Well, it is a lot safer than Florida! But have you thought of the golf course in Yellowknife. No grass to lose your orange balls in.
 
2020-05-23 2:35:12 PM  
In Yellowknife they use snowballls year round. True fact.

No, business dress is now Caribbean formal:  black shorts.

Pull the elastic over your nose iike you are 99.

Yeah, but ... you sneeze on the other side of the elbow. Try to sneeze on the wrong side!

runwiz: Hoop skirts making a comeback?

[Fark user image 224x225]


I have already thought of that, and haven't posted the idea, but I did see a woman via Fark who was using a fake sort of Goth or Emo hoop skirt to social distance in a store, so the idea is definitley "in the coronavirus-ridden air". There are better ways to keep people at a distance that do not involve whale-bone or crinolines.

Come to think of it, crinolines would work nearly as well and you may already have some if you are a female impersonator or a square dancer. Look for crinolines as day-time wear.

I looked at a site where they compared various materials for masks. A single sheet of paper towel is a very poor mask, but it caught about 20-25% of virus-sized particles and two sheets were 33% better, so even a bad mask is much better than no mask at all when people sneeze or cough or spray it instead of saying it. Or sing. Etc.

Best of all is going around three sheets to the wind with an adult diaper as a mask. Unless you are asthmatic or have COPD, etc. Actually having coronavirus is a bad idea also, so wear a mask and don't do that.

Big smelly cigars and Bourbon drinks are also good for social-distancing, but neither of them affect the actual viral load. They just warn people to stay at least 15 feet away from you in cramped quarters or public spaces.
