One incredibly fun aspect of this Isolation is time to binge.
In my workday it’s back-to-back music. In my office, under normal circumstances, listening to music is frowned upon. My office mate can’t handle it. So at home, I am indulging!
So far, I have listened to all Toto albums in chronological release order. I have listened to all Aerosmith albums in chronological order. Now thinking about what to explore next. Recommendations accepted. And expected. I do have some ideas (Prince, anyone), but I’d love yours. Also, Nine Inch Nails just dropped a couple of albums unexpectedly. Excellent.
Bingeing movie series is also fun. Star Wars done (RIP Carrie Fisher). Harry Potter is underway (RIP Alan Rickman). I might do The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings next. So many options!
Maintaining my routines in the day has been valuable. A regular break/walk every couple of hours to clear the head. Being in the CBD is surreal. It’s just amazingly quiet.
The queue to get. Into Countdown is quite bizarre, and the 2m distancing is very amusing. Shopping under these circumstances is fantastic. It’s like having the supermarket opened just for me. Like I’m a famous person. Who’s yet to contract COVID-19.
