  • With pretty much everyone staying home these days, I was wondering how people are spending their time? I assume there are a lot of comic books being read. And a tonne of TV being watched. Netflix in Europe has become so popular, their bandwidth has been weakened to try and allow everyone a shot at watching.

    I've been re-watching some of my all-time favourite movies. I also started Hercules: The Legendary Journeys from season one. I still have those massive DVD collection sets from the early '00s.

    I would like to see some lists please.

  • After a round of layoffs, I'm working 6 days a week as the chief bonehead of a skeleton crew. I manage a hotel and travel just ain't what it should be this time of year to say the least.

    Since my daughter's college is shut down and she's dwelling in my basement, I've taken the opportunity to enlist her on my little bit of time off in FINALLY mixing in some of the thousands of unlisted comics I have filling a storage shed with the rest of my nice, organized collection.

    Harry Potter, Underworld, Lord of The Rings, and Star Wars marathons have also been going on. I think maybe a Game of Thrones marathon might be up next.

  • I am still working at the office, there are only 4 of us here, the other 15 or so are working from home. My work is considered an "essential' business so we are continuing to work.

    When I am home I have been watching the 1960's Batman tv show that I got on Blu-Ray a month ago. Been playing a little more video games than normal, playing with the dog and keeping her entertained. Last weekend it was nice here so I got outside and cut firewood and burned brush for about 4-5 hours. We got a foot of snow Monday so when that melts I hope to be cutting more wood for the next few weekends. I haven't taken the time to read many comics but I do hope to soon. Stay safe everyone!

  • I've been under self quarantine since I got home from Phoenix Mar 12th.
    Been watching some tv... Locke & Key, Mindhunter on Netflix. Re-watching Spartacus and cleaning up my DVR since it was getting full.
    No live sports on tv sucks, so I have been watching some of the classic games the sports channels are airing now.
    Been on CBR site a bit more adding books and doing corrections as well.
    Made some Jerky, Smoked some nuts, making Sushi today.
    I go for walks a few times a day just to get some air and my b -utt out of the chair.

  • Made some jerky? Smoked some nuts? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

  • I am working from home since Monday and honestly I miss the office. I find my wife thinks because I am home all day that I am suppose to be helping out around the house, and my dog keeps nudging me to play and go for a walk. Too many distractions and this is only day three. Don't know how I am going to get through the next few weeks. I've noticed I have been a lot more active online, on forums and YouTube.

    No those are what they mean, it's the "Making Sushi" what you're referring to Wink

  • I went home early on the 4th from work. Ended up working from home through the 6th. Went in to the office on the 9th, then went to see the doctor. Ultimately ended up in the hospital until the 11th where I have been working from home since then.

    The family has taken it seriously and quarantined since the 13th. So we are on week 2, and still have 4 to go (our area instituted a shelter in place until April 24th currently).

    Luckily since I travel a lot for work, working from home is not an issue. My day job is in the pharma industry so no current downside. I get up, shower, work downstairs until 8:30 when the family gets up, go upstairs and work in my office until 5ish. I usually have lunch with the family, and then we have dinner together, play a game, and are currently watching all of the Marvel movies in order.

    Once Marvel is done we will likely do Star Wars and The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings.

    School for us is canceled in person for the rest of this school year. We find out tomorrow what the e-learning starting Monday will look like for the kids.

    We have it nice compared to others because we have land, a shared lake, and even a pool (should this continue on for a while). I really feel bad for people living in apartments in a city.
