01: New routines, Panic liquor, Drawing ducks


Mar 29, 2020

At some point, we’re going to have to start eating breakfast before 11:30 am. It’s been two weeks and we haven’t quite nailed down the ideal self-isolation routine.

To be fair, this would have been Spring Break. We’re supposed to be floating in a Playa Del Carmen resort pool, drinking frozen mudslides. So, we’re cutting ourselves some slack, giving ourselves permission to sleep in and be lazy. Now is not the time to be checking Screen Time numbers.

The other day I heard a rumour that they were going to start closing liquor stores. I immediately panic-bought $200 worth of vodka. They haven’t closed them yet, which is good because we’re already getting low. Our livers might not survive this quarantine. Cheers everyone!
