well damn. I'll have some bourbon too.

At least I think I may have honor of starting the most depressing eplaya thread ever.

More bourbon please.

Ha, that may be your best ever, FJ! well done!
It's funny, because it's so true.

yeah, we got about an inch of hail/snow yesterday, sorta unexpected.
It seems the Trash Pandas were at my front door! Lurking I'm sure with nefarious intent.

Hi Savannah!

With all the hubbub, I almost missed seeing you! How are things going so far where you are?
Well, thank you & hello, Burner Von Braun! I am in a high COVID area, but am lucky enough to have a job that--with a few changes--allows me to work from home, so I have been a homebody for the last two weeks . . . :shock: . . . with 2 blitzkrieg departures for milk, vodka, and frozen pizza (you know, the essentials) and one hour-long walk on empty streets. I had a bad feeling about the current situation, so I shopped slowly all of February for non-perishables (which was quite labor intensive without a car). I also happened to have leftover bleach, gloves, and sanitizer, which is normal. Thank God for being a Burner. Over-shopping Since the Year 2000 and *mumble* . . .

My boss (a prominent academic in his field) has asked his fellow physicians & staff to work from home for the 6-8 weeks, based on projections. It's unnerving when the smartest people I know are nervous. I don't care for it much. :lol:

So, uh . . . how YOU doin'?

Pot smoke, burning rubber. Went to a party, opened the door as the tail end of Pink Floyd " Welcome to the machine" played. Yeah, just too cool. Oops, showing my age. Doesn't matter, already posted.

Haha!

. . . But that song is cool, though . . . soooo. :D


The first time I heard Pink Floyd was actually on the playa. It was "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" . . .

It was two o'clock in the morning, people were first starting to get tired, maybe a dozen people sitting in camp chairs in the dark just chillin', and someone played it, on an impeccable sound system. The first part will always be my favorite, so atmospheric; sounding like the surface of the fucking moon, you know.

And it was so beautiful, of course. The perfect place to hear that song for the first time. I said incredulously, "What IS that?" . . . 'cause I'm not of a tender age anymore, but it was before my time; was the sort of thing I would've heard only from an older brother (which I lacked entirely) or a teen mom (same).

And the guy who played it said "Are you kidding?"

" . . . No."

Listening to Pink Floyd "Pigs" with a woman you thought was your soul mate. Cruising on a sailboat, on an evening with a full moon lighting up the ocean. "Priceless." Going too see Pink Floyd live with your retarded Vermont Woodchuck buddies tripping balls at Madison Square Garden??? "Not so Much."

So, uh . . . how YOU doin'?

Glad you're able to work from home Savannah. A lot of that happening these days.

Doing OK, but still adjusting here. Thanks for asking. Like everyone I suppose, I have moments when I'm pretty concerned, not just for my own welfare, but the big picture too. Then other moments when I seek out more comforting thoughts, in an effort to create a sense of normalcy. I keep updated via reliable websites and sources. Mostly just taking it a day at a time and riding it out. Ruled out the trip to Nevada quite some time ago for this year. BMorg certainly has found themselves in a tough spot regarding tickets though it seems. No easy solutions to be found there. I wish them luck sorting that out.

HI BVB!
Glad you're working through it all. Some are not faring so well. We gotta help each other, IMHO, people to people.
Yeah, the ORG may well be in a tight spot. No firm decisions as of yet, as far as I know.
We're making operational plans, as though it's happening, though. Trying to anticipate modifications necessary, depending on circumstances.

I'm glad we have this bar, to just come, and visit, chat about light hearted stuff, leaving the politics and virus and all the stresses at the door.

Yeah, "when we get to push "play" on life again".....there's a toast! Skol!

Had a group of buzzards come roost in my back area yesterday. Very cool, but seemed sort of ominous...
