Pandemic social distancing diary thread

I started my new job this year and I’ve barely taken any vacation, sick, or comp time. Especially with how slow things are, I don’t see much point in using it hehe. And totally, if I were to lose my job for any reason, that’s basically a bonus to help transition over to a new job. That with what I put into retirement and all, I’ll have a stop gap while I looked for work or something! I don’t to use any of it haha.

I have a very close friend in town (my closest friend, too be honest), and we ended up getting into it last week, but we’re like R2-D2 and C-3P0 in that we’re always kind of bickering with each other.

I offered her some Chinese takeout on the house today to make good, but she’s apparently been in quarantine, and will be in it for another week. I highly doubt she’s getting paid. Made some masturbation jokes. All is well.

Did you avoid being captured by android traders?


#1214

Are you still selling them my info?

EDIT Waot I remembered wrong. I believe you were collecting my info for your own android.


#1215

No, the traders Luke’s dad buys the robots from, did you get picked up by them?


#1216

No, but we were told we weren’t allowed in the bar…

Oh wait, that’s pretty much everybody at the moment.


#1217

Was there a sale on rutabagas?


#1218

I was referencing the cantinas scene when the droids get kicked out.

At this point, I have no idea what is even happening in this conversation.

We are currently being hit with snow, sleet, and freezing rain until 5 am. That’s cool I guess…


#1219

I was referencing the robot trader desert tank ppl

those little desert wooks. “puchini!”


#1220

Well, my town is covered in a sheet of Ice at the moment, but I experimented and can leave my driveway, which is pretty freakin’ nice.

I spent last night catching up with some people on the phone. My good friend Mio, who has been my friend through many adventures, has moved to the countryside.

Mio - “You’ve always told me that I was quick to anger, but you’ve always been kind to me.”

Last known photograph of us together (wearing a mask before it was cool):

If I never see her in person again, I won’t cry. I won’t cry, I swear it… sniff

Winter has finally arrived. It looks pretty, but it’s kind of a pain in the ass. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
