I gotta be honest. The only thing I'm missing right now is the local Barcade I frequent, and I tend to be an extrovert. Maybe I should get one of the video game consoles that have all the old arcade games... but that seems anti-ERE to purchase the solution. :D
If you're going to buy one of those consoles with thausends of classic games in it, know they are not more legal than just downloading roms and emulator yourself and playing them on your computer.

But they come with a joystick! :lol: Actually, I bought a game called Star Control Origins off steam instead. It was on sale for under $10. It's like the old PC Star control/Star flight series from the 1990's, but with better graphics. A good time consuming explore and grind to find resources game. Takes the edge off my anxiety in between work shifts. I'm just waiting to get COVID-19 due to lack of PPE.

BTW you still have a top ten high score in Track and Field at that Arcade! Well, at least you did before it shut down a week or so ago. I bet they shut off the power to the games, so all high score efforts are probably lost. :(

I have been playing a Garden Romance themed video game in order to distract myself from constantly checking Covid dashboards.

Ran almost 9 miles. Did 25 pull ups. Fixed my gate that I wrecked with my tractor yesterday. Drank beer.

I started on a largely pointless nonfiction book project. At least I envision it as being book-length in the end. That's not necessarily out-of-character for me. I don't have all that much additional free time.

I have spent the most glorious day that I've had in ages... don't want it to end.

I am at remote house near deserted beach and elderly parents.

Just spent the day wandering around on it listening to classical radio music.

Cold but bright and beautiful...

Planning to exchange my surf boards for Stand Up Paddle (SUP) board.
Haven't a clue yet about these but sea near our house much more suited to SUP boards as hardly any waves.

Can't wait to do SUP lessons and get my own one.

What Coronovirus???
