Have you tried enlightening them to the fact that we're bloody virus' killer machines and isolation is the ultimate adaptation to have them shudder in fear waiting for the end to come? xkcd has a pretty good visual presentation on it.

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

And @Tanktimus the Encourager: WHAT THE WHAT?! This morning on IFL Science was the first time I've seen reference to such craziness ... 

 

I mean ... my Dad isn't even on that trip, and I SWEAR TO FUCKING CHRISTMAS IF HE DOESN'T STOP BLINDLY BASHING NANCY PELOSI BECAUSE THE COOL KIDS ON FOX NEWS HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS - BANG, ZOOM, TO THE MOON ALICE. 

 

/end shouty. Hey, I don't like her either - but because she's a career politician and I don't trust any career politicians, but daaaaaamn .... I think most people who keep bashing her are just doing so because she's a woman in power. She's either doing something her constituents like - or has gerrymandered her area to stay in power - but leave her gender out of it. 

 

/end soapbox 

 

And no: I don't really know shitall about her, her policies or her politics; just that I've seen a lot of yelling about "shrillness" and "manliness" and all the other tropes that get trotted out when dudes are feeling insecure about women.

Quarantine Status: Full lockdown

 

List Of Tasks

 

Sometime: Make weekly schedule, type up recipe to post on Saturday 

 

Monday: Grocery shop if needed, make dinner component parts for the week 

 

Groceries were good, though I may pop out tomorrow on the way to picking the dogs up and grab some more coffee milk; made just dinner tonight and will cook more tomorrow - both these things may need to be adjusted to Tuesday things next week. 

 

Tuesday: Coffee video chat, run a load of dishes 

Wednesday: Take trash out, clean house, clean balcony, change pajamas, laundry 

Thursday: Free day to get ahead or be absolutely unproductive  

Friday: Face mask & self care, contemplate makeup and/or not-pajamas, bake bread, make a nice dinner, secondary balcony clean, date night preferably outside 

Saturday: Video coffee & chat date with friend, delivery lunch, laundry, change pajama shirt, game night via video chat 

Sunday: Supply run with DH, delivery dinner, take the garbage out, make weekly yoga collage, video call with the US if I set that up earlier in the week 

 

Breakfast: Egg & vegan cheese paratha 

Lunch: Fruit

Dinner:  Quorn chicken patty, vegan cheese, the last of the homemade challah, a fried egg, Finnish mustard, Kewpie mayo, sriracha sandwich with a side of Dorito Taki knockoffs

Snacks:  None 

 

Did I eat like an asshole? Eh

Did anything try to kill me? Still a little stabby stabby and I think even this damn vegan cheese is bloating me a bit 

Did I eat a vegetable? Um ... no

Did I drink enough water? Ish 

Did I support my Herd? Yes

Did I interact with “IRL” humans? No

What did I learn today? Sewing bias tape is fiddly and annoying 

What was my project for the day? I sewed fabric face masks for DH and his coworkers - took me most of the day to make 4. They're far from perfect, but they are out the door!

Ahh, xkcd a lot of treasures in that archive! But never forget about the image alt captions. A lot of the time they're really funny too :) For the image you posted it was "We're not trapped in here with the coronavirus. The coronavirus is trapped in here with us.", which isn't haha funny I guess, but it does drive home the point of the main graphics in a good way.

 

The latest comic has a more haha funny alt title :)

It also makes a really good argument in favor of wearing a cloth mask, home made or not, that has nothing to do with whether the cloth can stop a virus: It makes people keep proper social distance. And since pole arms are such a massive pain to transport in my car, this cloth mask thing might be a lot more practical....

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe.

I had completely forgotten about the alt captions! 

 

And I think it's hilarious :)

 

As for the mask thing - I tend to agree with @Scalyfreak: a good friend of mine (who is obsessed with Japan, and is supposed to be there right now) put it somewhat thusly: she made and is wearing a mask not only because she misses Japan and really resonates with the reasons they wear masks, but to add a physical representation of "stay tf away from my face" for other people. She lives in a town that is not into taking this ish seriously. 

 

I get that, and I'm not sure if it is working the same here (culturally, a lot of covered faces already - and populations with a - amount of need for physical space), but I'd like to think maybe it is ... and mine is galaxy, so .... *sparkle unicorn emojis*

 

And on the upside, it's probably at least filtering out some of the g-a-r-b-a-g-e particulates in the air here, so win-win. 

 

Now if only I can remember to *not* put on lip gloss before donning my "armor" like my usual armor equipping ....

Oops. Apparently, I forgot to log in yesterday - I blame my jacking up of Tapatalk notifications. For some reason, I'm not getting them for this challenge - which I suspect is because I followed everyone's threads via my computer, which I've done so rarely in past recent memory, I've apparently forgotten to make things easily-transferrable on my part. And Tapatalk is semi-broken, so there. 

 

 

Week: 2, Tuesday

Quarantine Status: Full lockdown

 

List Of Tasks

 

Sometime: Make weekly schedule, type up recipe to post on Saturday 

 

Monday: Grocery shop if needed, make dinner component parts for the week 

 

Tuesday: Coffee video chat, run a load of dishes - Done and done. One of my coffee chat group showed up, which was fine - also encouraged someone from the larger group (which I absolutely do not have the desire or mental bandwidth to deal with) to host a Zoom chat for whomever wanted to show up. I think she had 1 other lady come? I'll continue to put "meeting" reminders up every week and throw it open for other Zoom hosts to do - if I remember. Or I could just let the group temporarily die. Considering whether to kill this version and switch over to another, hopefully free, Meetup group afterward - we have like 5,000 members on the books; most of which don't live in the country any more. 

 

Also walked to get the pups who were at daycare and a walk with them home. 

 

Wednesday: Take trash out, clean house, clean balcony, change pajamas, laundry 

Thursday: Free day to get ahead or be absolutely unproductive  

Friday: Face mask & self care, contemplate makeup and/or not-pajamas, bake bread, make a nice dinner, secondary balcony clean, date night preferably outside 

Saturday: Video coffee & chat date with friend, delivery lunch, laundry, change pajama shirt, game night via video chat 

Sunday: Supply run with DH, delivery dinner, take the garbage out, make weekly yoga collage, video call with the US if I set that up earlier in the week 

 

Breakfast: Skipped

Lunch: The last of the leftover crispy rice

Dinner:  Hummus pasta

Snacks:  A tuna snack box thing

 

Did I eat like an asshole? Not especially

Did anything try to kill me? Not really; still random stabbies

Did I eat a vegetable? Yes

Did I drink enough water? Ish

Did I support my Herd? Yes

Did I interact with “IRL” humans? Yes

What did I learn today? Huffing and puffing while wearing a face mask is hard

What was my project for the day? Layed out my quilt squares while the pups were gone 

What did my yoga practice look like today? A lot of forward folding again 

 

 

Week: 2, Wednesday

List Of Tasks

 

Sometime: Make weekly schedule, type up recipe to post on Saturday 

 

Monday: Grocery shop if needed, make dinner component parts for the week 

Tuesday: Coffee video chat, run a load of dishes 

 

Wednesday: Take trash out, clean house, clean balcony, change pajamas, laundry. Put on my Edwardian walking skirt, my favorite crop top sports bra, an embroidered granny style handkerchief, red lipstick, eye makeup & highlighter to swan around my house, cleaning like Cinderella. Also had a mini photoshoot because I was feeling dramatic. I was tired afterward, and my body was hurting from running around these hard ass floors with no padding. Also managed to tweak my hip and my calf. I guess getting turnt up when Fleetwood Mac came on my Spotify channel (she says, fulling knowing this is the whitest of white girl things evar). 😂

 

Thursday: Free day to get ahead or be absolutely unproductive  

Friday: Face mask & self care, contemplate makeup and/or not-pajamas, bake bread, make a nice dinner, secondary balcony clean, date night preferably outside 

Saturday: Video coffee & chat date with friend, delivery lunch, laundry, change pajama shirt, game night via video chat 

Sunday: Supply run with DH, delivery dinner, take the garbage out, make weekly yoga collage, video call with the US if I set that up earlier in the week 

 

Breakfast: Vegan cheese & egg quesadilla thing 

Lunch: The leftover hummus pasta

Dinner:  Salmon with rice, hummus & a salady thing 

Snacks:  None, just extras on the lunch 

 

Did I eat like an asshole? Ate a bit much at lunch but I was hungry after cleaning all morning 

Did anything try to kill me? Nope 

Did I eat a vegetable? Yes

Did I drink enough water? Not even a little

Did I support my Herd? Nope - super totally forgot 

Did I interact with “IRL” humans? A bit; had to tell one who thinks it's a good idea to host two friends for a wine date that I wouldn't be there - for a number of reasons; some of which are different than what's being touted as the reasons. (I don't have anyone to protect and likely would not come into contact with anyone who is obviously at risk - even tangentially, given the general makeup of this society and whom I come into close contact with on a regular basis).

 

Among them: I'm choosing to participate in a society that is choosing to participate in quarantining, so I'll comply; I am a completionist and don't want to "cheat" on quarantining any more than I have already (future-me would 100% remember the cheating); going would make me a hypocrite and I try really hard to not be that; I know I won't hit the 'stir crazy' wall (I've basically lived like this for years and years in my before-life);  I want the opportunity to learn from living with this adversity; this is a shared social experiment; and the minor inconveniences it presents helps put things of actual import in stark relief (example: I'm refusing to have "things" delivered, choosing to just. not. shop.). Those may not be the most PC reasons, but they're good enough for me. 

 

What did I learn today? Swiffer Wet Jets are pretty cool, but damn it still takes an absolute age to mop the floors. Also: I'm thankful to live in a 1-bedroom apartment, and I'm beyond grateful to have a weekly cleaning professional come to wave her magic wand in "normal" life. It's amazing how easy it is to clean the house when you have someone regularly do so for you who is a professional and has that ish down to a science. I'm surprised she's not a sweaty mess after every house; it hit 97 here in the afternoon, and man I was a mess. 

 

What was my project for the day? Still managed to work on sewing the quilt - did 8 rows of squares into strips before DH came home and my shoulders couldn't take any more contortion. 

 

Side note as of Thursday am: I'm procrastinating taking a shower and yoga-ing a: because I have a case of the don't-wannas, and b: because I've managed to injure my damn shoulder YET AGAIN. I think I overstretched it again, or got too zealous with ... something. Maybe side plank? Probably had my alignment wrong there. Hands are also twingeing, but I really don't want to do another crappy halfassed forward folds only practice today. I'm really digging forcing myself to get onto the actual mat and have a class. 

 

I'd like to think I could pick it up later - after I get my quilt strips sewed and ironed - but I know me, and know I can't be trusted to do so. On the other hand, Thursday is my scheduled "nothing" day, so .... we shall see what happens. A shower to be sure. Pics coming.

As for the mask thing - I tend to agree with @Scalyfreak: a good friend of mine (who is obsessed with Japan, and is supposed to be there right now) put it somewhat thusly: she made and is wearing a mask not only because she misses Japan and really resonates with the reasons they wear masks, but to add a physical representation of "stay tf away from my face" for other people. She lives in a town that is not into taking this ish seriously. 

 

While I wait for my order of masks to arrive from Amazon, I am learning how to improvise a mask with a bandana and rubber bands (CDC has a helpful tutorial video on their website), and reading up on proper mask protocols and memorizing how to put on and take off a mask without making it useless for actual protection, just in case.

 

Side-note: Your reasons for quarantine are very similar to mine. Husband and I are not particularly at risk, but we can still carry the virus from one infected person, to any other healthy person we would be interacting with if we were not quarantining. That is how community spread starts and happens, and what happened in all the places that are suffering the most from the pandemic. I am self-quarantining, and figuring out how to wear a cloth mask, because I'm a member of a society that needs me to do it, in the optimistic hopes that some kind of karma-related concept will make others in my situation do the same, and help protect this society we all are a part of.

This makes what you're dealing with puppy wise so much clearer! (S)he looks jolly, how do you even keep your focus with a dog jumping on your feet?

Legally bound to hug people in need.

 

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

Today’s big project was grocery shopping - wore actual clothes and did some dramatic eye makeup that complements my mask.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand here's my anxiety. DH came home in a foul mood because of his nose that still can't get fixed until all this blows over. He was convinced he's getting sick, the building managers want another meeting, add trying to quell DH's generalized anxiety about getting trapped at work and unable to come home, aaaand I ended up having a dream I obsessively bought pet ravens - plus a cockatoo? The big white one; not the smaller even more dickish white/grey ones. And I was letting them just free roam around the house (which was magically not poop covered - you bet I addressed that ish right off in the dream). For some reason, they liked to snuggle? And I needed to attempt to figure out their names in front of a teenager? Couldn't decide if I was going for serial killers or just gothy old people names ... 

 

That's a new one on the anxiety level. Usually, it's zombies and apocalypse prep. 

 

Anyways, best not to dwell on that shit; here's yesterday's wrap:

Quarantine Status: Full lockdown

 

List Of Tasks

I really need to move this grocery bullet to Tuesdays. There is no damn way I'm leaving my bubble 3 days in a row. Today in a nutshell: video yoga, more sewing, finished Harry Potter, only cried about it a little. Got new photography lights in; with no batteries (whomp, whomp). Got our last Hunt A Killer box for this season, so we have big plans this weekend. Also scheduled a hangout with friends for the weekend sometime. 

 

Tuesday: Coffee video chat, run a load of dishes 

Wednesday: Take trash out, clean house, clean balcony, change pajamas, laundry 

Thursday: Free day to get ahead or be absolutely unproductive  

Friday: Face mask & self care, contemplate makeup and/or not-pajamas, bake bread, make a nice dinner, secondary balcony clean, date night preferably outside 

Saturday: Video coffee & chat date with friend, delivery lunch, laundry, change pajama shirt, game night via video chat

Breakfast: Skipped

Lunch: Leftover spicy rice/ramen thing 

Dinner:  Leftover smashed potatoes and a fake chicken patty turned into a shitty burrito with some salsa & avocado 

Snacks:  None 

 

Did I eat like an asshole? Nope

Did anything try to kill me? Not more than usual

Did I eat a vegetable? Nope

Did I drink enough water? Probably not 

Did I support my Herd? Yes

Did I interact with “IRL” humans? No

What did I learn today? Ummmm ... stuff about Harry Potter, I'm sure

What was my project for the day? Quilting. Got another 2? 3? rows in today. 

What did my yoga practice look like today? My "normal" 10 am class with my favorite teacher via Zoom. Interrupted constantly by dachshunds. It was good - shoulders, dolphin, working toward pincha (forearm stand kickups).

More importantly, anxiety sucks, I'm sorry yours found some new ways to be creative.

but leave her gender out of it. 

 

I always wonder when people bring discriminatory labels into stuff.

 

A jerk will be a jerk no matter his chromosomes or background or labels he identifies with :')

 

Sure, I prefer a jerk with a smooth or pleasantly raspy voice talking BS rather than shrill if I HAVE to listen to any, but it's still BS :D

 

Shared the comics on my social media. 

Honestly, even rationally knowing we are doing nuff by staying home, it gets a bit maddening.

 

So gotta stroke my ego that I am doing something by doing nothing (actively besides washing my hands etc.)  *zennnnn*
