Hey Sean. I’m very sorry to hear about your cat. Losing a pet is always hard, but at least you were able to get some help.
I’m getting used to working from home after spending years in an office full of people that I enjoy being around. We’ve been having morning video calls during our traditional coffee time, just to have so we’re not just communicating about work stuff all day. Not having a commute means it’s harder to find a bit of time to catch up on podcasts (but I’m about 1/3 of the way through 285). Luckily I already had a home office that was mostly used for gaming and music. Now it’s for gaming, music, and actual work.
My wife and I have been going to breakfast at the same restaurant every Sunday for as long as I’ve lived here. We know all the people who work there, and they start cooking our orders as soon as we walk in. Now the dining room is closed (in all the restaurants, not just this one), but they’re doing take out and delivery. Unfortunately, not for breakfast. This is the first time we’ve missed more than a week in a row in 6 years.
Gaming-wise, not much has changed for me. My weekly open-table game was already online, and it’s continuing without any hiccups. I had been really looking forward to Gary Con, but I’ll have to settle for some online gaming (Wanna help Sean and my PCs out?). NTRPG Con is in June, and I’m worried that will be cancelled too. Maybe this is the year I go to Gamehole?
Things are crazy. I hope you all can stay well, and try to be kind.
