Ad Hoc Pandemic Post 21

Number of times I said, “this snow is stupid” in the past three days: 17

I did a thing, and I want to post it, but it will violate copyright and I don’t really want to get a take-down order or have my blog banned or blocked anywhere, so y’all are just going to have to take my word for it that the staff I work with sent in bunches of AWESOME clips to make a lip-sync video of PANIC! At The Disco’s “High Hopes” and it turned out great! Here’s a link to the offical video so you can listen to it in the background while you scan the rest of this post. 🙂

In case you thought I didn’t really follow Nick Heath and his #LifeCommentary #LiveCommentary feed, you are mistaken. He’s posted a few fun ones lately and this one came through today:

He posts them on FB, too, if you aren’t a Twitter user. And probably Instagram.

My friend Sharon posted this fun book-spine-title-story about being in quarantine:

Youngest Child and I decided to make a few mini-stories/poems of our own (it IS National Poetry Month after all). Here’s what we came up with. I’d love to see some of YOURS!

I knew holding on to all of these books would come in handy.

BTW, one good thing that has come from all this mess right now is that people are trying harder to connect in ways they haven’t before. My family near and far met in Zoom tonight for a get-together. Would we have made that extra effort to do this in the past, even though the technology has existed long before now? We hadn’t, so I guess not. Unintended consequences aren’t always bad. It was great to get together with them and laugh.

Be well. And may you find laughter when you can.

What do you think? I'd love to discuss!
