Ideas For Things To Do At Home While Isolating Day Two Hundred And Nineteen

Ideas for things to do at home while isolating day two hundred and nineteen: Finally take a hiatus from the blog you’ve been doing it every day for over eleven years.











We’ll see if I come back to this. I might not. I screws up the daily isolating bit, but by all rights we should have been done with that long ago if people were willing to do what it took to end this.

“Anyway, a bunch of penguins were living in a ceramic bowl of cold spaghetti noodles. There was no tomato sauce because it didn’t exist yet, but that was okay. As the spaghetti was cold, moisture condensed upon it. This kept the spaghetti from sticking, or from sticking to the penguins, or the bowl. It also kept the penguins from sticking to the bowl, and from sticking to each other.
As I mentioned, tomato sauce did not exist yet. You should realize since this was a beginning, the moisture didn’t either. Neither did the bowl. I think you can guess about the penguins. How could there be penguins if nothing existed yet?”
David S. Atkinson, Apocalypse All the Time

“It was a bowl cut, the hairstyle for someone who doesn’t grasp respectable haircuts but suddenly has to have one.”
David S. Atkinson, The Garden of Good and Evil Pancakes

“Contrary to common understanding, monotonous songs do not pass time. In fact, they stretch it out to incomprehensible lengths.”
David S. Atkinson, The Garden of Good and Evil Pancakes

“If someone asked me to pick out my own vagina’s mug shot out of a lineup of vaginas, I’d be helpless. And probably concerned about what exactly my vagina had been doing that constituted a need for its own mug shot.”

Joseph Michael Owens Well that too! He wrote his non-sci-fi stuff as ["just"] Iain Banks and his sci-fi stuff as Iain M. Banks, which never made much sense to me as far as real name/pseudonym relationships usually go, but hey, whatevz!!
