Nice moment of the day: our biggest national organisation for seniors is teaming up with the biggest supermarket chain.
They created an app where you can sign up, tell them where you live, and they'll pair you with elderly people who need shopping done, giving them a layer of security. It'll be rolled out nation-wide in the next couple of days.
I'd already emailed the local chapter 2 weeks ago, offering my help, but at that time they had enough volunteers. So naturally I signed up.

@enchantedsleeper we're all going to end up with unusually tidy flats if things continue like this!

Being a ridiculous introvert has definite advantages these days - I don't actually mind the lack of personal contact.
I've got some friends with whom I chat more, and I'm watching 2 episodes of Buffy every evening with a friend in Germany. Also, as long as I'm allowed to, I'm walking into work for a couple of hours every day, pick up the mail and stuff. The weather's gorgeous, so those 5k feel really lovely. And I've dusted off my aerobics dvds instead of going to the gym. So far so good...

@fribbledom Switzerland has been criticised by the WHO for testing too little - however, our labs are running at capacity, so while they're preparing to be able to deal with more in the upcoming weeks, right now I expect your friend wouldn't be tested here either.

Coronavirus, wtf Europe??

Gender survey 2020 - open to everyone who doesn't neatly fit into the gender binary:

There's a London premiere for the Miss Fisher movie on March 30. For a moment I was seriously bummed bc I'd love to go (and I haven't been in London for a while) - and then I realised that in all likelihood it'll be canceled, considering how things are going. (They closed all theatres, restaurants, ski areas etc. in Ticino, the Swiss canton bordering on Italy - I assume it's only a matter of time until it'll be all of Switzerland.)

Oh boy. Because I didn't make it to the gym yesterday (spent the morning moving storage rooms at work), I decided I should go for a jog today. BIG mistake. It's quite cold, but apparently not cold enough for the stupid pollen. πŸ™ˆ Halfway through my chest started tightening, and now I'm back home, used my asthma spray and am currently coughing my ass off. Good thing that didn't start outside or people would have thought I need to go into quarantine...

@vamp I love it when that happens - someone read and commented on two my LotR fics only the other day. <3

They canceled Basel Fasnacht (carnival) bc of the corona virus.

You have no idea how big of a deal this is - we call it the three most beautiful days of the year, and last time they canceled it was in 1986 after an accident in a chemical plant. Even people who're not into it are at a complete loss, as most businesses would be closed. So no one knows how this will play out, esp. bc "FasnΓ€chtler" are a stubborn sort. :)

Shuffle surprise: I forgot how much I like Tori Amos. Should really check out what she's been releasing in the last few years.

I'm taking part i Fandom For Australia, if anyone is interested in fic, vid or gifs from me:

So. Not dead. Actually doing pretty well. Still deep in Untamed fandom. However, right now I'm actually finally watching ep 34 of Guardian. Recommended it to an Untamed fan and it made me miss it.

If I remember correctly I have a few more "safe" episodes, and I really want to see the time travel for myself. But wow, I forgot how distractingly obvious the dubbing is at times.
