It’s not like nothing report worthy happened this week. But I’m definitely experiencing that weird, distorted sense of time everyone’s been talking about. It feels like no time has past since last week’s Weeknotes. Yet, it’s seven days later. What have I been doing? I look back and, like the past couple of weeks, seem to recall only flashes.
Between last Sunday and this Sunday, it’s just been flat out at the work-from-home dayjob-in-exile. A couple of longish days in there that didn’t leave me with much left over afterward. Using my personal tools for work has been working just fine, with a few interesting issues here and there. I’m smugly doing everything my Windows-based dayjob requires using Ubuntu. But I’m balancing it out by being unofficial tech support for coworkers who aren’t as tech savvy. Makes you wonder just how much of the world continues to run thanks to Zoom’s remote control feature.
FEEDING MY HEAD
I eked a few more paragraphs out of some of the stuff in my reading queue…
- Elise Collette Goldbach’s, RUST: A MEMOIR OF STEEL AND GRIT
- Osama Alomar’s THE TEETH OF THE COMB & OTHER STORIES
- Kit Reed’s STORY FIRST: THE WRITER AS INSIDER
ROTTING MY BRAIN
I’ve gotten back into the (bad) weekly habit of livetweeting snark at the History Channel’s THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND and THE SECRET OF SKINWALKER RANCH. It’s a rabbit hole, to say the least.
I’ve got a To Be Watched queue, but I can be forgiven for this distraction in this time of coronavirus, right? (I mean, god knows I didn’t have an excuse any of the other times I’ve done this.)
THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
Funny how I'd automatically assume someone like Nancy Pelosi would have a better video call setup for appearing on MSNBC than anyone else would. https://t.co/IZX0bXQryI

You know, I think that’s all I have this week. Maybe I’ll get to bed early and tackle Monday fresh!
Yeah, I know: famous last words!
