Organized an online game night with some friends.
Caught up with some folks on the phone.
Tried to stay as calm and normal as possible.
Later, my closest friends, my girlfriend and I will spend several hours
yelling at each other on Skype, accusing one another of being an alien
and trying to shoot people out of an airlock (“Push the Button” Jackbox 6)
My friend’s dad, who is a doctor and a scientist
said that consuming alcohol can potentially lower bacterial and viral body loads.
I don’t know what any of that means, but what it feels like
in my heart of hearts
is that for the good of all my friends and loved ones
I have to get very, very drunk
and jettison my friends and loved ones into space
A few weeks ago
when it was still okay to hug people
my friend Jeff bought me a microphone
trying to get me to take up music again.
Astute bloggers may have noticed
I very briefly posted a message yesterday
about how I would be playing some songs on Twitch
and then deleted that post very quickly
due to some unexamined shame/confidence issues.
Now, I have nothing but time to examine/confront
said shame/confidence issues.
So won’t you join me,
Saturday March 21st at 7:30 PST
for a little Quarantine Concert?
I’ll be playing some old songs on a dusty guitar
maybe a few new.
Hope to see you there.
Stay safe everyone.
