Super8 Panic Marathon



Apologies for my outfit (unless you're into legs, in which case, you're welcome), I ran to the studio from home. At 11am the Brooklyn Bridge was pretty empty, thankfully, but on the return it was getting more crowded. Plenty of tourists out walking in big groups, not practicing social distancing in any form. Sigh. Can't stop what's coming.

There were also a lot of people out in Brooklyn Bridge Park. I don't think playing volleyball today is a good idea.

Maybe I'm overreacting, but it's really not looking that way. I hope I'm overreacting. A "shelter in place" order seems not-unlikely for NYC at some point in the near future. We've discussed leaving, but have nowhere we'd want to go. Being home is a pretty good place to be, even if there are too many goddamn people around. Even if we had known what was coming months ago, I'm not sure where we'd want to be. I want to be somewhere else but nowhere else. Maybe after this whole crisis is over (will it be a few months? 18 months? ugh), a move is in order.

Not into hairy legs but that doesn't stop me to leave a comment. It's good to hear that you are taking precaution measurements, it's good for you but for other members of society too, especially the loved ones. I have also practicing social distancing from the very start, I see it as some kind of responsibility after reading about all the mess around the world, and programming thankfully is a good company to spend some time in an isolated environment (home). Here in GR the government was somehow immediate in taking various measurements and bans but the immaturity of a large portion of the society is scary. For example they banned restaurants, night clubs, cinema and anything related to public gathering but some people ignored all that and where organizing/doing beach parties without any protection or whatever. I mean there are times I question the decision capability of the average person or their intention to follow some very basic rules for the overall public safety; and in general it's very difficult to deal with that kind of people. But, I was expecting NYC to have a more sophisticated reaction on such matters, here it's mostly village mentality...

Anyway keep it safe and enjoyable, I always believed that a person that cares about himself/herself always aims for the long-term of any situation.

A friend of mine was telling me how disappointed she was when she found out that her boyfriend's legs were smoother than hers.
