Thanks everyone, and especially you Savor for offering something many have not been able to...empirical hope.

And StevieG...funny, I thought I was the only one that felt we were kindred spirits.

Cags: Group Hug Please keep us posted. Sad <3

Here in Jos, I am in my classroom working (lunch break now). Our school is probably the only school in West Africa posting all of our classwork on Google Classroom and other online assets, and it's been quite a learning curve. It's not likely that we'll be able to reopen before the end of the school year, so this might be it. (Stag of the dawn and I both tried working from home, but our internet sucks there so we're at school today.)

Going out, it didn't look much different from any ordinary day. Some businesses were closed (those who aren't selling food, pharmaceuticals, cooking gas, or telecommunications) but there were still plenty of people out and about. Using the kekes (three-wheeled conveyances you see in every movie about Thailand or India), crowding the marketplace, walking around doing whatever. The panic on seeing non-black people seems to have abated (the assumption was that all foreigners could be infected).

We have an option of evacuating in a few days, a flight arranged by the US Embassy, but there are a lot of reasons why it's probably just as well we stay put. We are still praying for guidance on this, but I think we're operating on the thinking that we're staying here.

In some positive news, all my family are well, so far. Also I will no longer teach grade 3 after this year, next year I will be an Assistant Principal (while continuing to teach K-5 Music part time as well). I'm like, yay. Confused Who knows if the school will be here next year?

Glad to see people here are checking in, keeping our spirits up here.

Woke up inside the Island of La Grande Jaffe again. That's three days running this painting by Seurat has cast such a spell on me.
Getting a little irritated by this so, imagined walking to the dark rectangle on the far side and entered as if through a door ...
hopefully this has put and end to the mysterious infatuation.

{{{Cags}}}

For me, the stress of the uncertainty was definitely one of the worst periods. Once things are determined one way or the other, the path forward may be difficult, but having a plan of any sort is definitely less stressful.

Love and Light! Here's praying for that 8%.

Actually, my 8 year old daughter did a prank yesterday that was glorious. I was going to post a picture of it, but I don't have an online post a picture thing, and I can't get it to work through Facebook. So, I'll describe it.
Essentially, she got some cardboard, taped it to the toilet underneath the seat so that the toilet itself was covered, cut a small hole in the cardboard, and wrote "Expert Mode" next to the hole.
I almost didn't see it.

Haha, thanks. (Are you in? A bit worried about my ability to participate consistently...I'm already lagging a different RP type thing (although not a "traditional" game) on a Discord I'm on... Very Happy )

Oh, Cags!
That is amazing... sounds like she "gets" the sense of humor that is fitting to you / the males in your house.

(says the person who, when one of her munchkins was littler than he is now actually had him use air-scare-quotes* on the words "delicious food." In reference to food I required him to eat.)

understood! then you probably have a sense of where all my time is getting sucked away to now that it feels very legit to spend large hours of my life online. which is what i had wanted to do anyway but was usually so conflicted about.

Av- have u made any Discord servers yet?



* Air scare-quotes? Finger scare-quotes? What do people call it when someone tries to use scare quotes in person when they're talking out loud?

Hey Cag, you're in our thoughts. Keep us posted.

I'm looking at switching to working from home. Honestly, I've asked my employer about it before, but now they're actually letting people. Unfortunately, when we tested my connection it wasn't fast enough - they want a decent buffer to ensure service quality.

But I'm switching to Comcast (even though I hate those bastards) to make it possible. Plus, it'll be nice pulling the trigger on buying a game and not having to wait several hours for it to download - maybe only one or two Wink

I've always just called them air quotes.

Despite the fact that I am still working Mon-Fri (though on a reduced schedule), it really is all starting to run together. At the end of last Wednesday my boss said 'See you Monday' and we both stopped and had to think about that for a minute. I knew it wasn't Friday, but it took me a minute to come up with what day it actually was.

They're shutting down most of the bus lines here, so that should make my commute more interesting, and not in a good way. They're promising the worst transportation day since the quake of 1906, and unlike most of their promises, this is one they can probably deliver on.

The mask I ordered on Etsy will hopefully arrive early this week. I feel a bit self-conscious wearing a mask, so I will probably add my steampunk goggles and some chainmail - if you're going to be weird you might as well fully own it.
