But I am a robot.

by rivets

Social distancing. Shhhh. Stay quarantined in your apartment. Watch stupid nonsense on youtube forever. Play video games. Chase cats. Walk to the grocery store, and walk home carrying groceries. Talk to no-one.

But I am a robot. How can I answer that question honestly and still post things? I’m a lying robot. Bad robot. No oil-cookies for me.

 

Hello nature, goodbye noise of airplanes and traffic. May you be banished forevermore. Bring on the leeks.

I live near the state capitol on a normally very bust street. This weekend, that street was a ghost town. I could sit inside and hear birds singing for two days straight. It took a global pandemic, but I don’t have to listen to traffic noise for a while. Nice.

I rather like how the highway and street traffic has died down. Crowded roads gave me anxiety.
I sure like that there are no social events to feel obligated to go to or host.
I like that I can now justify shopping online near exclusively.
I now work 50% from home vs rarely before the outbreak. Much better.

Road noise and airplane noise are way down. The air smells much better now too. For now, if it were sustainable, I would like all these wonderful changes to be the new normal.

Great news from Hollywood! All senseless live audience productions canceled.

Amen. I heard geese outside. I walk out my apartment and am greeted by the blessed sound of wind. My neighbor said it was creepy, but I think he’s creepy, so that makes sense.

I can’t work from home, though. Apparently my workplace was deemed a critical industry so we’re staying open. They’re even combining 2nd and 3rd shifts together for the duration of the crisis. Yeah, I mean, it’ll multiply the people coming into the building by two for a grand total of 30 a night, and extend our hours to 12 per night, but by gosh, people need their tempered glass to get through this pandemic. The virus will probably hit our workforce hard, but our sacrifice for corporate profits will be honored in the coming empire. Or something.
