We drink and remember the time before the war…

March 30th, 2020Posted by Nancy

Or at least before the COVID-19 pandemic. I think I’ve started to forget what day it is. Or, at least, more than I used to forget what day it was.

We miss the gym and our friends but life is otherwise not that different. My mail-order seeds arrived and my garlic has started coming up so at least there’s the promise of digging in the dirt in the not so distant future.

What have I done in the last 15 days?

  • Charged up the “Write or Die” software and written 1,000 words. I only got the shrieking spider once.
  • Watched three Marc Maron specials on Netflix. Rewatched Denis Villeneuve’s glorious and moving Arrival. Now watching The Valhalla Murders.
  • Have had one yoga class via Zoom
  • Have had one cocktail party via Zoom
  • Have done a number of Les Mills workouts made available by Goodlife
  • practiced flamenco. The show has been cancelled but “the show must go on”
  • Starting cancelling bookings for our trip to Spain
  • Had too much wine.

Books I have read:

  • Me , Elton John
  • Leaving the Atocha Station, Ben Lerner
  • The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper, Hallie Rubenhold
  • Venice: A New History, Thomas Madden
  • Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee, Casey Cep
  • The Heavens, Sandra Newman
  • Dept of Speculation, Jenny Offill (currently underway)

Stay safe. Stay Sane. Maintain your physical distance. Don’t hoard toilet paper.
