Hey, all you cool cats and kittens!

Staying home and being quarantine can be a real bummer for the extroverts or a blessing in disguise for the introverts. Regardless, it can get tedious after a while for everyone, so feel free to share what/how you're doing!

This is a great place to share what you're streaming, listening to, reading, cooking, etc.

I am currently on Day 26 and it's Easter Sunday. Happy Easter!

I'm in between introvert and extrovert. So, I'm fine being home, but irritated that I can't go get stuff when I need it. I think what causes me the most anxiety is the financial uncertainty and absolute cold hard fear of contracting the virus. I'm immune-compromised, so death is a pretty good possibility. I'm also terrified that my wife will catch it. She's an essential worker and though where she works has been slow...you just never know. Someone in her office was sick with a fever and tested 10 days ago...still no results. It's nerve-wracking.

I just talked to my wife on the phone, she's off the next three days and she said, "Figure out what you want to do the next three days." I think my reply was, 'the same shit we've been doing for the last 26?' Maybe complete 'one' thing on our to-do list? We always say, 'we never have time to get anything done.' Apparently, now that we have tons of time, we STILL don't have time to get stuff done! We half-ass pressure washed around the pool and half-ass cleaned out a spare room. Since then, we've been mostly eating, binge-watching Netflix shows or watching stuff we have recorded on the DVR. Thrilling times over here.

I live alone and it is way too easy to go from one end of the week to the next without opening my mouth once (I also don't have many people I would call/video chat with)

I keep saying I'll exercise more but then I remember how much I hate exercise.

Also it's a really crappy time to be allergic to soap

Yikes about the soap allergy, Laragh ...

But thanks for making this thread! I thought about starting a thread like this, but then I thought to myself, self, you really only post in the It's Just Thursday, MKF! thread. But now I've got a place to go when it isn't Thursday.

It's weird being shutdown like this. I go for a walk around the neighborhood with the kids almost everyday, but other than that I haven't left my house since March 16th ... Mrs. gorn goes shopping once a week, I don't go anywhere. I work from home and I'm honestly busier now than I think I ever was in the office. It's weird.

The good side of this is I spend a LOT of time with mrs. gorn and the gornlings. Trying to put a positive spin on things, this is likely time I will never have in such abundance with them ever again.

I said "positive," but when I re-read that sentence it's actually kinda somber. True, but somber.

So, the gorn household is happy and so far at least healthy. Mrs. gorn & I still have our jobs, we bust ass during the day on the phone, on the computer, in conference calls and webex's, but we eat three meals a day together as a family. We watch movies, we play board games. On Friday nights we have a big slumber party and all sleep together in the king bed in the guest room ... although I think this Friday the kids are talking about building a fort in the living room and sleeping down there in their sleeping bags.

I pray with all my heart all of you and your families and loved ones are happy and healthy, too.

It’s day 26 of my furlough and I’ve gotten tons of things done around the house. There isn’t a level of satisfaction though because I have so much anxiety over whether I will still have a job. I’m in the hotel industry. I have had a lot of time to think and process.

I joined this board in 2001 and wrote about 10 or so fics. I haven’t been here in 15 years. After I got married, I didn’t write anything for the entire 10 years of the marriage. Furlough time has helped me realize that I was busy trying to manage the small stuff, I lost who I was. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a partner who was willing to help find me and it was my own fault for not staying true to myself. The marriage ended last year. And for the first time in forever, I want to write. I can’t think of anything better to write about than Willow & Tara.

I started outlining a sequel to my fic First Meeting. I don’t know when I will have anything or even if I can still write. I think my fics are off the board. I’m not sure if a moderator can restore them. The reason for pulling them is no longer necessary.

I hope everyone is well and safe

I see three fics that were taken down. Chosen Family, The Brown Triangle and S.C.O.O.B.Y.S.

I'd be only too thrilled to restore them if they were taken down by your request and it is your wish to have them back up :)

Glad to have you back in the fold, sorry it's in such bad circumstances!

Laragh, they were taken down by my request. There should be 4 fics in the Next Generation series as well.Titles are: Next Generation, Next Generation: The Coven, Next Generation: Stone Cold and Next Generation: Fear (this was incomplete). I also wrote First Meeting under the name Quirky Writer. I would be super grateful to see them restored. Many Thanks!

Just to let you know I've moved those three fics mentioned and have PM'd you about the others. Email notifications have been spotty lately so just letting you know in case you didn't see it!

On topic: I miss social media. I miss interacting with people in that way but all of the fake news and speculation is so anxiety-inducing. I stopped reading fanfic a while back to focus on writing mainly but I have so much time these days I think I'm going to dip my toe back in!

Thought I'd do a little quarantining over here this evening. Welcome back, Tiggrscorpio! I think you were a little before my time, but it's always nice when the old timers come back. Like Laragh, I'm sorry to hear it was a bumpy road, but we're happy you're here now.

My latest lockdown adventure has been finally cutting the cord. Thought about it for ages, but this is about as good as any time to do it. Bought a Roku that arrived last Thursday, actually. It's funny because I've spent HOURS skimming around finding things I've wanted to watch for years ... but then not actually watching anything. It's like a whole new world out there.

Howdy gorn! I cut the cord a few months ago. Love my Roku. My sister and I have spent quite a bit of time during this quarantine binge watching all kinds of shows. Some of the older TV series have held up well (particularly BTVS but I may be biased), others not so much. Okay, back to my project list.
