Hope everyone is staying safe and surviving The Great Shut-in 2020.

It's been a real drag being sick to start out this (supposedly just influenza) but in some ways it was a practice run in hygiene. Nitro has caught it too, but a milder version.

Everyone able to find supplies? Our grocery stores are getting a little thinned out, but most stuff is still there. We could use some hand sanitizer though. [Mad]

Sure is eerie heading into town now and the traffic is so light, and so few people around. [Eek!]

I'm in self-imposed quarantine at the moment.
I have a minor cold (minor headache, minor sore throat, occasional cough), the kind of thing that wouldn't normally cause any real inconvenience, but these are not 'normal' times. It's very unlikely to be coronavirus, but I'd hate to be the guy with minor symptoms who spread it far and wide.
So I'm currently living in one room of Casa del Druid, and quite enjoying ordering 'room service' from other members of Clan MacDruid.

Meanwhile, the bigger picture in oz is pretty scary. There are currently only 2 states that haven't closed their borders, schools here in Victoria are closed, all sports have been cancelled, and they've even closed the pubs!
You know things are serious when aussies close the pubs.

[update] just after I typed the above, there was a knock on the door, and a very nice tofu curry had magically appeared in the hallway. Room service is nice!

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Get well soon Druid, although you may want to self quarantine a few days longer than normal, to keep that magical tofu curry coming. [Big Grin]

Well, things got 'interesting' today.
Druidling v1.0f has a cough, and has been told to self-isolate - something that's not possible in the shared house she'd been living in, so she's moved back in to Casa del Druid.
We only have one room suitable for quarantine, so...
I'm now camped out in the garage, while she's enjoying room service inside.
Shouldn't be for long though, I'm on day 8 of my 14, and the minor cold I had a week ago has all but vanished.

Hooray, I'm essential. Other office staff are alternating remote and on-site every other day but I'm the only one who can operate, maintain and repair critical machinery so I'm in 5 days. However the store I work weekends at is closed so I've got that going for me...
