Lockdown: What-cha-doing?
« on: April 05, 2020, 11:36:25 AM »
Aside from finally watching the end of Picard and the Mandalorian (ik,ik), I watch a guy who does reptile rescues. He records his unboxing of the incoming animals mysteries.  the guy is quirky and fun-



What wacky stuff is everyone watching?

I spent the last two weekends house cleaning. Ive organized my comics & books, I’ve wiped down floors and blinds that have never been cleaned ever, I’ve thrown away a ton of stuff, including some SDCC swag that holds no value to me whatsoever. I’ve packed up a bunch of stuffed animals I won decades ago from Circus Circus, ready for donation.

The thing is, I feel like I’ve barely made a dent towards a cleaner living space. There were a couple points I got into a coughing fit due to the amount of dust I was kicking up. I need at least another weekend of two dedicated to cleanup.

I'm spending my time playing video games. My free time at least, the rest I spend incredibly bored while remote working. A lot of my work is contingent on other people, the courts, deadlines, etc.

Well, all of the civil cases are bumped, along with any hearings, a lot of offices can't work remotely. Without being in the office, I have very few people coming to me to give me stuff to do... or things to weigh in on. I've been handling tracking down a ton of records too, for my new job, but all the people involved don't seem to be working so I'm making no progress.

Because I was sick, I haven't left the house in about 4 weeks and am getting a bit bored, more so than usual. Luckily, Final Fantasy VII Remake comes out this Thursday /Friday.

I love BOTH Tabletop Sim and that website. My favorite is Pokémon Master Trainer with friends on ts or stone age or carcassonne on board game arena.

My work got busier, so I have been mostly working (from home). I fit in a KDrama occasionally, on my lunch break. It's nice to be able to watch it on my TV instead of my phone though.

I've actually been working out more.  My running has me at 5 miles now, and as I'm locked in at home, when I'm done working (I can do my work from home, it's weird but we're doing it) I just step over to the weights to get some stress out.  Or, if it's a run-day a quick change and I'm out the door.

I will say tho, those newscasters are on to something.  Business shirt up top, party downstairs.  Gotta love it :)

Oh, and add playing "Old Man's D&D" from twice a month to like 3x a week :)

I've read your comment at least ten times, and I still can't figure out what you mean. My industry?

I think she meant "industriousness" basically.

Edit: What I did tonight other than nap for 5 hours, play my trusty old Smite MOBA. There are A LOT more late night players since so many people are home so I'm not getting terrible matchmaking at night at least.

What wacky stuff is everyone watching?
My wife works for our local County Office of Education, and she may be working even more nowadays from home than when she was going into the office!  We live in a 2-bedroom condo, so while she's mostly in our bedroom where she set up a nice work-station I'm on "home-teaching" detail with our kindergartner while also working on lesson plans for my students.  This week we've started 'distance learning,' while the first three weeks (which was the initial shut-down for our district) everything was laid-back & "optional."  So this week things are getting more serious work-wise for me AND my kids!
Luckily this coronapocalyse is happening when my oldest son is incredibly self-sufficient about doing his assigned work & my youngest is in a grade where his work is EZPZ for me!  If he were in an older grade, with harder math or science projects or something, we'd maybe be in some serious trouble!  Luckily this week the boys' teachers ramped up their workload so things are a LOT more organized for them than they were the first three weeks, where I was mainly designing kindergarten curriculum on my own (Art 101: Fun With Lightbrite!  Science 101: Watch EMPIRE STRIKES BACK while discussing real-world science truths & non-truths)  :P

I've actually been watching a LOT less TV than I normally do.  We only have one TV in our condo, so penciling in time to watch my stuff (most of which no one else in the house likes/I'm allowed to play in front of a kindergartner) is ROUGH!  My oldest kid gets on not long after the youngest goes to bed to play video games w/his friends so there's not a lot of open stuff unless I want to watch on my iPad or computer (which I do sometimes, but I've mostly been reading)

Meditating and watching as much CBS All Access as I can fit into my free month subscription.

My free month of CBS All Access was coming to an end, but when I went to cancel they offered me 2 months for the price of 1. So I took it and we started Discovery.

Watching a lot of tv, wife cooking a lot so quarantine weight gain, watching cars go by, learning how to play guitar. I bought guitar in mid February before everything started shutting down.
