Like most of Burton's work in the past 20 years, it's missing something. Sigh. Penny for scale. #quarantinelife #missingpiece #TimBurton Image
Holy shit. Like... what? These odds are astronomical af ImageImage
Even weirder they live an hour away.

(The puzzle was an Amazon order from a company in Germany so it's not like we grabbed them off the same shelf in Hollywood or something.)

Seriously. Be kind to yourself. I’ve seen lots of people taking advantage of this time cooped up at home by finding new hobbies and learning new skills - and that’s awesome. 1/3 Image
But it’s also normal if you’re feeling the pressure of this crazy world right now and don’t feel like you have the capacity to become a novelist, redecorate your home, & teach yourself how to sew all while trying to make sense of everything going on around you. 2/3
Just take care of yourself and do what you need to do to stay safe and happy and healthy. And if that means that getting out of bed is your greatest accomplishment some days, so be it (and also, you’re not alone). 3/3 #selflove #bekindtoyourself #quarantinelife #quarantineart

Elements of my management of #bipolardisorder: a thread

1.) Medication. I couldn't work on many of these things until this laid down a foundation.

2.) Sleep. If I don't get enough of this, I will invite mania. But I've noticed something unusual lately...
...I am becoming manic even with enough sleep. I'm not sure of what is happening but it may be resolved with

3.) Stress control. Like everyone else, #QuarantineLife is taking its toll on me. I hardly see my friends except on Zoom. Socializing helps dispel the little blue devils.
4.) Exercise. I could do more of this but the heat wave has limited the hours I can get out.

5.) Diet. High blood sugar can lead me to depression, so watching what I eat is critical.

The next items pertain to habits of mind.

Songs for the Apocalypse. I just wrote this piece for my dear friend Ryan.

I'd meant to write her a lullaby or something, but this is what came out instead.

#music #QuarantineLife #quarantineart #originalmusic…
Ryan's words from back in May have stuck with me:

"Sometimes it feels like this baby is going to be born during the apocalypse. But then again it's always been the case for mothers to birth babies in times of hardship - when I think back to my ancestors who bore babies...
"... under enslavement and war, then I have an awful lot to celebrate. He will be a phoenix."

Now that I’m taking a few few days off (THANK GOD) I’m back to my sourdough journey this time with son #2 method. Which includes using a scale! #QuarantineLife ImageImageImage
Humor brk. In Ben's directions re: "poke test" to see if sourdough's ready to shape: "If dough doesn't really spring back, you're kinda fucked...Bake it anyway, but you should let go of any expectation you have for that dough. It's easier that way. Just...let it go. Let. It. Go."
In case anyone is wondering, raising children is easier than making sourdough 🤣 tomorrow we bake. ImageImageImage

Just realized that my lower back pain over the last couple months has come from being mostly inside and not wearing shoes most of the day. I ordered comfy flats with arch support to wear inside and back feels much better! #QuarantineLife Image
This is totally not an endorsement of wearing street shoes indoors by the way.
Have you had life hack epiphanies of your own while spending so much time inside? Please share! 💜

Had 1st ever encounter with my neighbour - a kung fu lover known as Golden Eagle who also happens to be a 6 year old girl. A shared moment of connection during a strange time, or so I thought…Golden Eagle, Crouching Weasel: Lockdown encounters with a 6 year old Ninja - a thread
It begins: Met my neighbour at the end of the garden, a small girl who introduced herself as 'a ninja'. She can do Kung Fu. I confessed I too am a ninja & we took a moment to exchange balances. Having won her trust, she revealed her ninja name: Golden Eagle & asked me mine
I told her. She disappeared. l continued to hang out the washing, as the last pillowcase was hung & I turned to head inside - she made me jump by leaping up from behind the wall, shouting
'I can do camouflage too. See you later Crouching Weasel'. An unlikely friendship is born

WhatsApp Family Corona-chronicles:

"I saw good reviews [and] even joined an air fryer ninja group on Facebook to ask them for advice."


Cousin trying to research air-fyers.

"Oh oops forgot to mention I lied to the group to get In haha one of the prereq questions was to make sure you had an air fryer".
"Idk just been a stressful time for me but we’ll see I’ll def keep you guys updated I know the suspense is going to be keeping you all up at night."

Again, still talking about air-fryers. She'll live.

good day here is my brothers dog scooby falling in actual love with a bearded dragon named carrie fisher

#HappyEaster2020 #QuarantineLife #DogsofTwittter #dog #loveislove #reptiles #HappyEaster #Quarantine
(Also, we didn’t learn till later that apparently dogs can get salmonella for licking lizards 🦎 but the chance of it is especially low for bearded dragons and also if you have ever eaten cake batter you don’t have a leg to stand on so DON’T HATE love is love
) (the number of tweets I have had to post containing one parenthesis to close out a parenthetical I have left open the tweet before is EMBARASSINGLY HIGH) <—-see how good I am at not making the same mistake twice in a row?

If a cop arrest you and take you in.
Ask for a paper & pen and write a writ of mandamus. Then you would file it with the state supreme court.

Refuse to plea and make them put you in a cage without a proper charge just like they had to do to the great...
....Jefferson Davis. eventually they'll have to answer for why they're holding people in a cage without charge.

I will remind everyone that numbers outweigh guns. Maybe they'll quit trying to drag people in if someone sees them trying and 30 or 40 people hop out of....
...their cars at the same time.

When laws become unjust Rebellion becomes duty.

More #quarantinemusic, following through on my #QuarantineLife music and culture thread during #LuzonLockdown yesterday.
1. "Bring Him Home," sung by former cast members of Les Mis, to support Britain's .@NHSuk frontliners:
2. The Civic Orchestra of Philadelphia was due to celebrate its centennial with a concert. When canceled by #COVID19 the musicians recorded themselves singly to perform Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony jointly; and commissioned new compositions. Amazing!
3. The Colorado Symphony started a very nice #PlayOn online series featuring its musicians. Here is a performance of an Aria from Bach's Goldberg Variations for Mandolin, Guitar, and Bass (April 1, 2020):

What I've learned since I've been in Quarantine:

My cat runs and hides under the bed when I sing.

I'm trying not to be offended😢
Yesterday I posted what I had recently discovered during #QuarantineLife - that my cat Zoe hides under the bed every time I sing 🎶

Today to distract myself from the real news I experimented to see if she really does hide every time😳

Day ?🤔 (Who Knows)

I decided to continue my experiment. Subject Zoe 🐾 still hides under the bed when I sing 🎶

Sorry Zoe but I gotta keep singing to keep my spirits’re just gonna have to learn to deal

I took my dogs for a walk earlier. There's a new family across the street from us and they have a wee baby. When I reached home, Mama and daughter were on the couch by their front window, observing passers-by. We stopped & the little lass's eyes widened when she saw my doggos...
I pointed to the little girl encouraging them to "look at the baby!" They were wagging their tails, watching the little girl intently, ears perked. Then she started bouncing up & down with glee. I picked up my fella Atticus by his front paws facing them, and had him "wave."
She then let out a joyous little screech. It was the best 5 minutes I've had in 10 days. Thank you, little one, for reminding me today of the importance of the little things.
