It all hinges on whether you feel that "ripping yarns" is an attractive concept or an annoying one...

Knitting while telling ghost stories.

Default Re: Isolation diaries

another day of legoing.

I am working on Lord Vader's Volcano, a purely defensive installation that doesn't make lava based evil minions.

It is adjacent to Ivy's Isle who I am sure welcomes the industrial pollution from Kyber crystal production.

Yknow what they say, the spice must flow.

I finished Lord Vader’s Volcano today.

We filmed the train in low light, so the light effects would pop.



I don’t know why Facebook is fucking around with the video. All my settings are public.


Uploaded video to youtube.

Daughter, who has been working from the living room since isolation began (save for the two-and-a-skosh weeks that my office had opened back up, before closing again), often shares her workspace with the more feline of our co-workers. That co-worker apparently got hungry last night, had a bit of snack, and left the rest in his workspace for snacking on during the day.

He was not at all pleased this morning to find that our daughter had found his snack and removed it to somewhere less obtrusive. (Snack is on the left; co-worker on the right.)

The authorities JUST started recommending masks around here, and although cloth ones are discouraged, 4 different people on Friday asked me to make them some. So very annoying, as I was making some in, like, March, but had now put all the stuff away as I have no interest in making more.

I might try to make some for others after all, but only in the fabric meant for children's furnishings which has ducks blowing soap bubbles. So there.

Back in the office for the next two weeks. So I actually have to get dressed in the morning. :blank:

In other news, we appear to be through the second wave with numbers of new cases falling again.

Oh, I have no doubt that there will be a 3rd and 4th wave incoming. On the other hand, the 2nd wave was managed really well with full contact tracing.

What I find really deplorable is that apparently 20% of quarantined people, broke quarantine. Some of them even went on vacation. Morons.
