    Last night I discovered the limited series (4 eps only, I think) Unorthodox. I watched 2 eps and will finish it this weekend. Petty interesting.

    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    I was surprised about the book drop when our library closed 2 weeks ago (before social distancing had turned into no gatherings and eventually don't go anywhere), but realized that even if the book drop is mechanical/non-automated, there needs to be someone there to sort the books or the drop...

    What is happening at work?

    My work moved to 100% remote on March 12, mostly without a hitch. I have gone in a few times (I can walk to work and pretty much no one else is in the whole building) to check mail, make deposits etc. EOD Wednesday we are going into Shelter in Place mode. My boss is convinced that we qualify as...

    News & Experiences continued

    I got an email from my dentist with that same plan (open 1 day/week for emergencies only). I can't imagine anyone freaking out about their cleaning being delayed. I mean, not only is there a *********, so understandable, but also: who is really itching for a dentist visit?? :scream:

    Gov Inslee is going to make an announcement in about 20 minutes and I expect it will be the same here. I don't know how sweeping it will be (state vs county vs city)

    Food in isolation

    that's a good idea - I'm only a couple of blocks from a fire station. But do you think they would accept something homemade right now?

    Food in isolation

    there is a thanksgiving roast turkey recipe that I like, and have made just for a turkey breast - and then there are lots of turkey chili recipes (I can't find my favorite from a few years ago, unfortunately). I have not gone to a grocery store since Thursday, which feels weird. That was the...

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/nancy-armour/2020/03/23/tokyo-olympics-ioc-made-right-call-postpone/2891865001/ ETA: the link works fine but man, USA Today's site is awful

    News & Experiences continued

    Seattle Metro announced that they are using rider data from the last 2 weeks to determine how many buses they should run/what kind of reduction of service is correct moving forward. I had to go to the airport yesterday, and they were definitely running enough buses/trains for social distancing -...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    I watched the first episode of the show Cheer last night. So many people I know have raved about it, I thought it would be super entertaining, but it just seemed sad to me.

    Food in isolation

    I managed to score bagels last time I went to the grocery store (bread shelves get wiped out; I must have gone right after a delivery) so eating a lot of bagel/egg combos. Last night I made crabcakes - dungeness crab gets plentiful and cheap here in the winter. It wasn't quite as cheep as in...

    Kenny Rogers, RIP

    I have always loved his song "Ruby (Don't Take Your Love To Town)" with First Edition. Hard to reconcile the edginess of that song with his later work, but yeah.

    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    I don't do e-books, so I'll still be 234 in line when (if? :fragile: ) the library opens again.

    Food in isolation

    Last night I made a south indian chicken curry that I used to make so much I got sick of it - it's been a while, so it was a welcome reminder. I just made scones - they are super easy but I have to be in the mood.
