Happy Towel Day!
It’s the 25th of May (only ten days until the talking horse comes), and as you all definitely know, it’s the day we celebrate Towel Day. If you don’t know what Towel Day is, you’re probably really, really stupid. I’ve definitely always known about Towel Day. I’ve never not known about it. Can you imagine if I had only found out about it yesterday? Haha such a crazy idea lol.
Anyways, a towel is obviously the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Surprisingly enough, it’s also the most important thing an intrastellar social distancer can have.
You can hug while pretending it’s one of your friends. You can wear it around your shoulder and take pictures so people think you’ve been working out. You can put it around your face when your cat comes back from a walk and you don’t know where they’ve been. You can wipe sauce from your face. And if it’s still clean, you can use it after washing your hands for two happy birthdays.
And if you wanna know how you could have used it had you not been quarantined, I’ve got just the thing for you:
Douglas Adams was a great author with a phenomenal sense of humour and unmatched wit. If he were here now, he’d say:
I just want to be clear, wear your masks if you can, but if you can’t without breathing problems, it’s okay. Social distance instead.
When I was outside with my mom a few weeks ago looking for the fighter jets flyover and my neighbor came over but stopped short of getting close. Opened with “sorry I can’t wear a mask because of my COPD” and my mom, who has less severe COPD was like “it’s perfectly fine, you’re exempt, just keep the distance” and we talked and that was it. There was no need to berate my neighbor for not wearing a mask.
And for me, walking and mask wearing has become an issue. It’s springtime and allergies make my asthma worse. I recently purchased a mask that might make it easier, but still, walking my dog I prefer my skull and bones handkerchief that I can pull up or done as needed. When in a store, I wear my handmade mask.
When I was visiting graves with my mom, a woman passed with a mask and Glared at us. Like we were distanced, wtf? Get of your high horse.
It’s so easy to overreact and accidentally target someone who can’t wear a mask for legitimate reasons. Yes, I think generally non-mask wearers are probably asshats but you don’t know that for sure and should give people the benefit of the doubt.
Keep your distance. Stay safe.
Most people were wearing slacks. But Kirk was wearing jeans.
Captain in 3 years with his own ship….
nice thing about online classes: i don’t have to wake up at insanely 5am and can have breakfast while listening to the class. i’ve been feeling that online classes don’t work nicely for me ‘cause i still have to teach myself the courses. i don’t blame it on the professors, i know it’s being hard for them too.
Oops, that was yesterday.
I ran 6 miles down the Bay. It was hot and windy and there were SO many people out walking/running/cycling.
In the evening I watched 2 episodes of Good Omens.
Can I hear a wahoo?
Today should have been the annual Nerd Parade in Malmö and I should have met with my creative and crazy friends from the magic winter market.
It. hurts. not. to. hang. out. with. them.
And who knows if there even gonna be a market come Christmas :’(
Anyhow, I made a wizard’s hat the size of loneliness (the recommended 1,5—2 meter distance we must keep to everyone).
What I say “This is Malmö’s Magic Observatory encouraging everybody to keep up social distancing during the pandemic.”

Spock not knowing what to to do with the future ship
So I was up grabbing dinner, and with my given sleep schedule that usually anywhere from 1-3 am. Today it was a little before 1:30, and I see my dad walk into the kitchen. He heads to the bathroom, you know whatever, but then he comes into the kitchen and starts making coffee?? I was very confused and a little upset because I hadn’t finished my peaceful vibing quite yet
Keep your distance. Be safe, follow the rules. Send the death god to a derection it deserves.
As soon as I stepped out to get my mail today, one of those popup summer thunderstorms hit. It was a downpour, and I was soaked within minutes. It reminded me of long days at summer camps, huddled under awnings and half wet from the rain splatter.
I didn’t do any real work, but I had DnD with friends to distract me. I’m thankful that I can still engage with others that way.
I wanna know how/where you eat
Dinning table, kitchen table (there is a difference), couch, outside, lounge chair, beanbag, the floor, desk chair… and so on
