Why all those *other* people don’t have toilet paper.

‘Other people’ because I assume that my readers, like myself*, took elementary precautions ahead of time to ensure that we’d weather this particular crisis. anyway, it’s maybe not hoarding that’s causing the problem. Via Twitter, but I can’t remember which account:

Not a bad birthday.

All things considered, very much including the minor detail that we’re in the middle of a pandemic and there was nowhere for me to go. But my family did a video call, and there was cake, and the book cover’s finalized (you can see a lower-res version on my Patreon), so all in all: not a bad day. And fortunately I don’t feel that much different, which is nice.

Tweet of the Day, Don’t Watch This If You Have Coronavirus edition.

Because ‘wheezing badly at this’ is not an exaggeration. Saw this on Twitter via somebody or other last night at 1 AM or something like that; not sure who. Heck, I was barely coherent enough to save the link.

Taking it easy for my birthday weekend.

My birthday is, in fact, tomorrow. There was to be a party at a clubhouse with cake and beer and people ribbing me about becoming fifty, but then all of… :waving: …this happened and we’re back down to cake. This isn’t a whine or anything, because I wrote all of that without coughing once and that’s something that far too many people can’t manage right now. “At least I have my health” isn’t just a commonplace sentiment at the moment; it’s a heartfelt sigh of relief.

So I’m just gonna hang loose this weekend. Seems smart.

Tweet of the Day, Penny Arcade Speaks Sooth edition.

This is instantly one of my favorite strips. I dunno why; maybe because the writing in it is so elegantly sparse. And, yes: this is the introvert’s moment. We have trained for this.

I would like to assure everyone that this is not my house.

My wife telecommutes from the basement.

Via @EsotericCD, who like me refuses to even consider that this might be fake. Although if it was fake, I still laughed. That means that, one way or the other, it’s true.

Tweet of the Day, It’s Interesting How This Went Down edition.

We’re* actually closer to #2 than #1. Although I don’t see why we’d have to keep the brutalist architecture. Is dynamite utterly unknown in that glorious, nuclear-powered future?

Mysterious Ice Age Mammoth bone megaliths found.

So, hey, kind of slow day for the kind of news that I want to write about and you want to read, but this sounds interesting:

Tweet of the Day, This Made Me Laugh edition.

I don’t go much into quarantine stuff here, because why should I, really? We all know it’s going on, and I figure most people would rather hear about more normal stuff. But this made me laugh.

End of week update, Stayintine.

We’re fine, with the possible exception of me: I either am dealing with allergies, a throat virus, or strep. No fever, at least, so it’s probably not strep. Probably. Other than that, we’re sheltering in place informally until the governor decides that it’s time to do so formally. So… all right, I guess?

How are you folks doing?

PS: Be kind to each other. I swear to God, some of those people online, it’s a wonder that they don’t have spoons being bounced off of their foreheads.
