  1. Thinking of visiting HH next weekend for two or three days, need to get away from Lat Phrao for my mental health. Is there much open or many people out on the street?
  2. I hope they give us two weeks’ notice before sending us back out into the real world. I think we'll all need the time to become ourselves again. And by "ourselves" I mean lose 10 pounds, cut our hair and get used to not drinking at 9:00 a.m. New monthly budget: Gas $0, Entertainment $0, Clothes $0, Groceries $2,799. Breaking News: Wearing a mask inside your home is now highly recommended. Not so much to stop COVID-19, but to stop eating. Low maintenance chicks are having their moment right now. We don't have nails to fill and paint, roots to dye, eyelashes to re-mink, and are thrilled not to have to get dressed every day. I have been training for this moment my entire life! When this quarantine is over, let's not tell some people. I stepped on my scale this morning. It said: "Please practice social distancing. Only one person at a time on scale." Not to brag, but I haven't been late to anything in over 6 weeks. It may take a village to raise a child but I swear its going to take a vineyard to home school one. I wanted zombies and anarchy. Instead we got working from home and toilet paper shortages. Worst. Apocalypse. Ever. You know those car commercials where there's only one vehicle on the road - doesn't seem so unrealistic these days ... They can open things up next month, I'm staying in until July to see what happens to you all first. Day 37: The garbage man placed an AA flyer on my recycling bin. The spread of Covid-19 is based on two things: 1. How dense the population is. 2. How dense the population is. Appropriate analogy: "The curve is flattening so we can start lifting restrictions now" = "The parachute has slowed our rate of descent, so we can take it off now". People keep asking: "Is coronavirus REALLY all that serious?" Listen y'all, the churches and casinos are closed. When heaven and hell agree on the same thing it's probably pretty serious. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask and ask for money. Home school Day 1: I'm trying to figure out how I can get this kid transferred out of my class. Putting a drink in each room of my house today and calling it a pub crawl. Okay, the schools are closed. So do we drop the kids off at the teacher's house or what? For the second part of this quarantine do we have to stay with the same family or will they relocate us? Asking for myself ... Coronavirus has turned us all into dogs. We wander around the house looking for food. We get told "No" if we get too close to strangers and we get really excited about going for walks and car rides. The dumbest thing I've ever bought was a 2020 planner ... I was in a long line at 7:45 am today at the grocery store that opened at 8:00 for seniors only. A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her cane. He returned and tried to cut in again but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the 3rd time he said, "If you don't let me unlock the door, you'll never get in there."
  3. Often I go cycling on Bang Kachao where there are narrow paths frequented by cyclists. If a cyclist comes towards me I stop or get to one side expecting the oncoming cyclist to do the same. Thai cyclists, 90% of the time, will thank me. Western cyclists will not even get to one side but cycle past me at speed looking straight ahead, without even an acknowledgement from them, and this is 100% of the time. From now on, whenever a Western cyclist comes towards me, I will not get out of their way sufficiently for them to get past. They will have to stop and let me pass.
