what are you doing while in isolation?

Crosswords can totally absorb me when I can't concentrate enough to read.  

free crossword puzzles on USA Today (which I go to mainly for sudoku),

also LA Times  https://www.latimes.com/games/daily-crossword

some free NY Times per the Seattle Times https://www.seattletimes.com/games-nytimes-crossword/

Eating. More eating. 

I was about to suggest that the two of you should look into doing what you’re doing in isolation jointly, but then you wouldn’t be doing it in isolation and wouldn’t have anything to post here. So never mind. As you were.

Masturbation and self-loathing? Sure why not? The more the merrier. Sorry Wookie, not being serious.

Welp I made bread.  Self love is never a form of self loathing though.

I'm googling plans for how to make a chicken coop. Not a chicken sedan. (If you get my joke, you get bonus points). Tonight I will be cooking a nice dinner of pork chops with roasted carrots and potatoes. To be served with a lemonade/ margarita flavored mead mixed drink. I'm excited

I was gifted some sourdough starter. what the fuck do I feed it? how much do I feed it? do I have to feed it every day? will it turn into a moldy science experiment if I forget about it for a month by accident?

I've decided that my new motto regarding work is "keep my head down and not let obnoxious wanna be supervisor push me around into rearranging my schedule"

Me? Stressed? Not one bit!!! [sarcasm, it's a glorious thing]

My understanding is that that shit eats babies. Get it some babies.

@chem i work in a bakery that uses a sourdough starter! you can stick it in your fridge for a few weeks and it'll be fine, it just gets more sour as it ferments. when you leave it for a long time, a liquid will separate and sit on the top. dump that off and you can still use the goop underneath to feed it.

refreshing it is a basic recipe of 1. some of the starter, 2. some flour, 3. some water. mix it in a container, cover, and leave it to ferment for a day before using in bread dough.

https://www.theperfectloaf.com/sourdough-starter-maintenance-routine/ this site has a good explanation. i'm not an expert or a professional baker or anything, just someone who's seen how it's used. :)

lockdown #6 has been extended 2 weeks

back to 9pm-5am curfew when you can't even go buy milk

1 trip to essential shops per household per day

only 5 reasons to leave home (up to 2 hrs exercise within 5km of home, groceries/pharmacies/petrol/liquor(australia lol) Drs, essential workers who cannot work from home, caring duties)

our premier (like governor) blames "shitty choices of a few" (is that very aussie too?)

2 hours exercise cannot involve playgrounds,skateparks,basketball courts etc

cannot remove masks outside home to drink alcohol
