    I think I’ve just given up.

    The Asus one is pretty good. Also you can get a fancier touchscreen one that does a flippy thing. It looks cool but costs around €550.

    Coronavirus: Better Call Sol - CORONAMANIA

    Downloaded it last night. I heard a load of beeping today and have a mini freak out, until I realised I’d just left my phone on the washing machine and the laundry was done.

    Celebrity Creeps Thread

    Apologies for dragging this one back up again, but he’s a prick. I’m fairly sure I posted about him here years ago after he went out of his way to humiliate me in the middle of town because I had the audacity to be a young mum out with her child on her own. He said a lot of shitty stuff to me...

    Minor Pleasures

    People are showing up every day now to take photos of themselves outside the pub. I’m making sure to smush my face up against the window every time.

    Yep I’m noticing that too, but it’s a bubble thing. In the country, I know a lot of civil servants so other than farmers, most people in in contact with are working from home. Back in Dublin I’d mainly know tradies and shop workers, and they’re all back in work now.

    We still haven’t been able to get my Dad out of Thailand yet. The army showed up at his village two weeks ago for an inspection while I was FaceTiming him. He wanted to go out and film them so I could see. Took a while to explain why videoing men with guns wasn’t a good idea.

    Maybe society needs a breakdown, and Covid is it. The same way some people live in suppressed misery for decades until they have a breakdown. Then they can begin to address their problems and get better. I’m still holding on to the hope that this could be a societal do-over or something.

    Anyone making plans for a second wave? Limerick was pretty busy yesterday, including a group of about 10 English guys that were heading into a pub when I saw them (maybe a stag party?) and with the videos from Dame lane, we could be screwed.

    Coronavirus: Better Call Sol - CORONAMANIA

    I met up with a friend yesterday for coffee in Limerick city. I’ve called over to him a few times and chatted to him from his doorway, and text the odd time, but I’m the only person his spoken to face to face since March. He’s left the house maybe 5 times to get shopping and that’s it. He’s...

    Go for it. If it goes badly wrong, we’ll all probably be stuck at home again with a second wave soon enough and it’ll grow out.
