Amazing how a grocery chain can enact an emergency plan & have it’s sh** together long before the government even starts to…

I have an H-E-B grocery about a dozen miles from my place. I went there on an errand when this whole mess was shutting things down (in the first waves of the Toilet Paper Wars, too). Things were orderly, and I wrote about it last week, so I won't rehash the whole weird day. I'll … Continue reading Amazing how a grocery chain can enact an emergency plan & have it’s sh** together long before the government even starts to…

Q#127: How can you effectively create calluses for guitar practice when you constantly have to wash your hands?

Thanks to Coronavirus and my workplace, I'm washing my hands far more often than ever before. I can't even use the fingerprint scanner on my phone anymore because it can't read it (unless I re-calibrate, but I'm debating on that). The one thing I heard when I first started guitar practice was the need to … Continue reading Q#127: How can you effectively create calluses for guitar practice when you constantly have to wash your hands?

In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…

I had to remind myself of that. So. Damned. Many. Times. Too many. I was feeling tired, worn down, depressed, annoyed, headachy, and just trying to find something--anything--to do. I didn't wanna clean house, and it was a bit hot outside so I didn't take the dogs out right away when I got home. Rather, … Continue reading In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…

Dodged a bullet today, though I can’t help wondering if I’m jumping in front of another…

I wasn't supposed to work today, but a co-worker got hurt and couldn't walk, so I took her shift. And then, because things never stop changing in this CV crazy-world we live in right now, I got to give my input in a conference call with the owner that I didn't expect to. We have … Continue reading Dodged a bullet today, though I can’t help wondering if I’m jumping in front of another…

Blitz Q #126: If you could nominate a song for Earth’s anthem, what would it be?

After seeing articles and pics of people stuck in quarantine or self-quarantine singing and talking to neighbors through their windows or balconies all around the world, it got me thinking about something. The reason I love music is, like math, it's a universal language (well, once you translate the lyrics, I guess). There are those … Continue reading Blitz Q #126: If you could nominate a song for Earth’s anthem, what would it be?

Q #125: Lies, damned lies, & statistics; or, Coronavirus versus other modern contagions.

I talked to my mom this morning after debating with myself for 20 minutes on whether or not I should (not a promising sign). I was worried she was gonna be one of those hoaxers or conspiracy theorists about the whole virus deal. Well, only took three minutes to get into it, and thankfully only … Continue reading Q #125: Lies, damned lies, & statistics; or, Coronavirus versus other modern contagions.
