Stardate 73695.1: Eleventh day of social distancing

Megan had a good point tonight. If COVID-19 doesn’t get us, diabetes might. We really need to slow down on the desserts. Have you seen your inbox? I had no idea all these companies cared so much about me. My health insurance company just sent me an email that said, “We’re in this together for the health and safety of all.” When my health insurance went up more than 25% this year I sure didn’t feel like we were in this together. Kaiser Permanente? More like ripping my Kaiser off Permanently. I know that this whole social distancing thing is supposed to be boring but I’m not bored. I don’t think I’ve had a day off in the last 2.5 weeks and I don’t really see one in sight. I wake up pouring over legislative news and right now it’s 10:12 PM Pacific time and I’m still monitoring a live feed from the Senate floor. Plot twist: They’re doing nothing. Megan and I went out to the grocery story today. We’ll find out if we lived in 14 days. Our local Vons has changed the entire set-up of the store. There’s only one way in and one way out. You enter and get a freshly sanitized cart… I licked it just because. And when you go to the checkout line they have a red line now that you can’t cross by threat of death and dismemberment until the cart in front of you has properly checked out. It might have taken a pandemic to fix Vons but Vons is fixed. No one ate the Pinguinos in our house but I’m hearing it’s getting close. 

Current body temperature: 98.4
Rolls of toilet paper: 2.5 cases
Number of times I touched my face today: A lot
Supplies: Today we added sherbet, mint chocolate chip ice cream, mini drumsticks, and ice cream cookies.

Addendum: The Senate, White House, and House Democrats just reached a $2 trillion deal.
