Good Morning -
Tweety - I can't imagine being alone & single and being issued a stay-at-home order. This might sound corny, but how about long phone conversations with your best friends, and family? There is, of course, the internet and the whole "social media" thing. But these are no substitute for human to human contact. Feel free to "Facebook Message" me and others anytime if being alone at home becomes too much.
We're still practicing Social Distancing, verses being issued a Stay-at-Home order. Luckily for us, living in a rural, well-wooded area, it's easy for us to go outside for walks. Yesterday, Amy and I did just that. We did our usual power-walk thing, which is exactly 2 miles long (which includes a steep hill that's about 3/10ths of a mile long, including our 1/10 mile long driveway). The walk makes for a good work-out, especially as we trudge up the hill on our way back to the house. Of course, I balanced the whole work-out thing with spending a good amount of time on my fat butt in front of my computer. Yep. I probably spent about a total of 3 to 4 hours farting around on the internet doing that "social media" thing (punning around on Facebook, sharing photos and music, debating politics, etc.) (Speaking of puns, I do consider myself a great Master Debater, especially to when it comes to politics! L O L! ) (Sorry for the off-colored humor. All of this "social distancing" is making me a little wacky. )
As I mentioned yesterday, with all of this extra time that I have being on vacation and "social distancing", I set a goal to do creative things like write music, take photos, and do videography stuff. So, over the next few days, Amy and I decided to video-record one Too Live Nurse bit. We decided to do "Foley Catheter Insertion: Male", which is one of the bits on our humor album, "Ineffective Individual Coping". So, last night, we turned our dining room into a video-recording studio, complete with a green screen. This "creative project" might end up looking terrible. But, at the very least, it'll be a fun project to do together. I might take pictures of our green-screened video studio and share them. It took a few hours to transform our room, and it looks pretty cool!
I received an email from my Pastor that "regular" church services will not resume until May. This means no "regular" church service for the first Sunday of Easter. However, the church services will be broadcasted via the internet using the ZOOM program/App. I'm still reluctant to download the program onto my aging computer (which has sensitive audio/video editing programs loaded in it). However, I'm going to see if a ZOOM app exists for my iPhone, and load it onto the smartphone is possible.
Plans for today will include more farting around on the internet, a walk outside with Amy (possible on a nice near-by nature trail if the weather is nice), and possibly compose a new rock-jazz instrumental, and even possibly start video-recording something fun and funny with Amy (as mentioned above).
Take care, folks!
