Here are a couple of links to watch Broadway shows online, since we can’t go to watch them. The links are free, but the top one is only free for 7 days. The other is a YouTube link. Enjoy!
The above linked article tells about what I always suspected. Those hand driers in the bathrooms are just spreading germs. I always avoid them and I dry my hands on my pants or sweatshirt when there are no paper towels available. Yuck.
The above linked article shows videos of every day life, commented on by a rugby announcer who has no sports to comment on right now. A man after my own heart. Self entertaining. I am glad he posted them to entertain us, too.
I am a Healthcare worker, so I’m still working during the shelter in place mandate in the area. I pretty much go to work and come home. Occasionally, I’ll get groceries or gas on the way home, but I’m keeping socially distant.
When I came home from work today, I was surprised to see neighbors outside. The lady next door was just coming home from work and parking. The man across the street and a couple of doors down was outside smoking. The guy a few doors up was doing tai chi. None of that was unusual. But, the guy a few more doors down was outside playing the kazoo. Always entertaining.
If you can’t get out and go, at least get out and give your neighbors something talk about. We all need entertainment during this crazy time. Just keep your distance.
The man in the above linked article managed to gather over 17,000 bottles of hand sanitizer. Because he was raising the prices so high, Amazon and Ebay suspended his accounts. Now he’s stuck with a lot of sanitizer. The rumor is he will be donating them.
Last week, I had a full schedule after work. On Monday, I had bookclub. We were on the fence about canceling it because of social distancing. Earlier that day, it had been recommended that events that had over 1000 people should be canceled or postponed. We had ten in a fairly large room with a bathroom and no one touches each other, so we decided we would be ok.
Tuesday I had art class at the community College. I went in suspecting that classes would be canceled after the meeting on Tuesday, so I brought a lot of the work home. I left the finished pieces there, though, because I wouldn’t have to work on them at home. I ordered an easel so I can continue my painting at home. The teacher is sending an assignment and we are to take photos and send them to her until school opens again.
Wednesday, I was supposed to go to dinner and a comedy club, but it was canceled by the venue.
Thursday, because class was canceled, I went out to dinner with my mom. After dinner I went to pick up my library holds on the way home. Thankfully I did that, because the libraries were closed the next day.
Friday and Saturday I was supposed to go see a couple of bands, but one venue canceled and the other band canceled. The book reading I was supposed to go to was canceled by the venue.
I went to help a friend at work yesterday. Data entry. I wiped everything down and washed my hands a lot. I heard that some of the nail places were closing, so I ran over to get a mani pedi quickly. My nail place uses masks and gloves regularly, so I figured I’d better get it done while I can.
Today, I had a bookclub scheduled. I was watching the RSVP list and saw it got down to three people. I messaged the hostess on Friday to ask if we were rescheduling. I hadn’t finished the book, and neither had she. We decided to postpone it. Gives me more time to read the book.
I did hear that grocery stores are closing in various areas, but I haven’t heard about any in my area yet. Fingers crossed.
While all these cancelations were annoying, I understand why they are happening. Be safe everyone!
