I Get It
A year ago, if I'd seen this image, I wouldn't have understood it at all.
This image is amusing and also a little sad.
Skype in 2011
I ran across this photo recently. The game room space is just as messy as the cartoon from the New Yorker.
I was amused by this scene when I saw it 9 years ago. Scott had gotten back from a month away and had strewn stuff everywhere. (Don't ask me about all the bottles.) He was setting up Skype, to do an interview for an AmeriCorps job. He tried to convince me that no one would see all the junk in the room. I sure hope he changed clothes. He did get the job.
Today I decided to set up my Zoom, (with friends) in that very same room. No bottles and blankets in view, but I did set it up in front of my most cluttered book shelf.
I figured if anyone got bored with our Zoom, they could study the oddball things on my shelves. No one got bored and no one had tech issues! Yay! After 9 months of Zooming, we OlderZoomers are finally not embarrassing ourselves by fumbling with sounds and view! It's about time!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
