The surrealism of everyday life


Recommended Posts

I love my wife and cats, but there's a reason why I never took remote-only jobs.  I miss going into the office and interacting with people.  I miss even going to the coffee place in the lobby.  I'm just way too restless to stay at home all of the time. 

 

If I were still in my NYC apartment or our little San Jose condo I'd be going even more nuts right now.

We have threads for annoyances and what made us cheerful, but then there's those weird things that happen.....   My workplace is particularly fertile ground for the surreal. 2 current examples:

Yeah, me too.   As soon as I'm a real member, I'll upload a real avatar.   Or did you mean my sig?

You talkin' to me?

So I went looking for the symptoms of coronavirus infection, cuz hey you never know.

 

On the CDC website, there's a preliminary list of warning signs, and then another list of symptoms that, if you have them, mean you should immediately seek treatment.

 

Among the latter -- the symptoms requiring immediate medical attention -- is "new confusion or inability to arouse".

 

It seems cruel to me, when addressing a disease that is especially of concern to Older Americans, to list as a serious symptom circumstances that to us are just features of everyday life.

the grocery stores around me have some weird stuff. I don’t normally shop at the one around the corner but I doubt that 80% of the cheese was kosher a few months ago.

 

I just saw most of my high school friends on zoom, which was both wonderful and terrifying.

I got the exact same DM from Pink Pig’s scam Instagram account. They opened a scam account under pinkpignycc (they added an extra c). That certainly was surreal.
