Corona Part III: the one where we all practice social distancing
Life in a time of corona (see what I did there?)
A lot has changed this week. It’s crazy to think that Cyril’s announcement was only 5 days ago. Thank goodness I recently bought new pjs. If I hadn’t what would I have worn while working from home all week?
I am always going on at my mom about sharing fake news. But this week I failed. Granted it wasn’t harmful, but still. The canals in Venice are clear, you can see fish and apparently the swans had returned. While half of it is true (the canals are clear and you can see the fish), the other part is not. The pics of swans were from another place where the swans have lived their entire life.
And when it comes to corona content, be careful what you share. If you’re caught sharing misinformation or fake news about the coronavirus with the “intention to deceive” you could face a fine and/or up-to 6 months jail time.
This video is amazing. Arnie tells us to stay home while feeding his pony Whisky and donkey Lulu. And if that wasn’t enough, he went all Terminator 2 on us and has another video of him in chilling in jacuzzi telling spring breakers to stay home.
Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together. pic.twitter.com/FRg41QehuB
And if you happen to be working with your partner…
Pro-tip for couples suddenly working from home together: Get yourselves an imaginary coworker to blame things on. In our apartment, Cheryl keeps leaving her dirty water cups all over the place and we really don't know what to do about her.
Uber EATS also has free lunchtime delivery (11 am – 2 pm) on weekdays. Check the app for the daily promo code. Food delivery services haven’t been impacted by the restaurant ban yet but will stop delivering alcohol after 6 pm. If you’d like your courier to leave your food at the doorstep, just leave a note in the comments section on the app.
I was today year’s old when I learned how caviar is made
I love Business Insider (sign up for their daily newsletter here – I still miss those Whatsapps) and came across this video. Somehow I thought that fish laid eggs and that’s how caviar was made. They kill the fish. And some caviar is so flippen expensive because it takes 20 years to lay eggs.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
