I spent the day relaxing with the flatmate, who celebrated her birthday in quarantine in style. Part of the fun was her request for friends and family to send her pictures of themselves in costume. The criteria was this:
A person - real or imagined - who had to spend some time in isolation.
That was it.
I am not good with costumes, and have a very limited wardrobe in any case, so I dressed up as Runner 5. Folks who are familiar with that character will recognize them from the running gameficiation app Zombies!Run. It's a fantastic app I've written about before. Basically it turns your running training into something fun with high-stakes radio-play-like missions for each run. Anyway, it required little more than my usual running gear with a torn up running bib with the number 5 painted on it.
Low-effort, but fun.
We had a long breakfast outside in the sun, lounged around inside when it got too hot, then I made dinner for us (which apparently was tasty... Part of me still feels like she was just being kind, even though I enjoyed it too. I am a well known food vacuum, though. I will eat most anything. Mmm.... food), and her parents visited, all masked up, and staying well away, to deliver gifts and chat for a bit.
Later, we listened to music and played around with sparklers.
I stayed out later than I normally do, though, so today called in for a lie-in. I also don't expect to be doing much work today either. I'm le tired, and I feel like cutting myself some slack. Chances are, though, I will manage to get some work done.
I am aiming to continue with the editing, for example.
Speaking of which, I should go now and get that done. But first:
