Crucial Mindless-Ness

Another month of social distancing? Too much to deal with. Stationary bike and weights. Good. The scared shitless diet is also working. And. It is crucial to tune out the news. So.

Final season of POP TV’s Schitt’s Creek so sweet. Will miss it.

Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None on BBC 1 is kinda dumb but fun. Charles Dance is always worth a watch.

The Inn at Little Washington on PBS is a great diversionary story about a quirky chef going for his third Michelin star.

Homeland  would have been ripped from the headlines a few weeks ago. Now Afghanistan and Pakistan seem so quaint.

American Idol  singer/performer Just Sam aka Samantha Diaz is really a fabulous UWS story (even though they say she’s from Harlem cuz it sounds more hardscrabble). She slayed Selena last night.

So far we are the only people not watching Tiger King. There you go. Getting through another day.

Coronavirus Chronicles Vol. I

2 weeks ago:

Had birthday dinner at Gramercy Tavern. Now closed. Sat outside on a clear warm sunny day sipping Sauvignon Blanc at Tavern on the Green courtyard bar. Now closed.

A week ago:

Dr. Husband shopped as usual at Citarella. Aisles too narrow to go there now. Pioneer is better. And. Fresh Direct delivered with 2 days notice. Now windows are at least 10 days out.

Yesterday:

Next-door neighbor who is never home because she travels the world for work had a Peloton delivered. Luis our Doorman who usually gives me a hug was sitting behind the desk wearing a mask. I sprayed an Amazon box with Windex all-purpose cleaner before opening.

Today:

April baby shower for nephew/niece canceled. Positive reviews and calls for NY Gov Andrew Cuomo to run for President 2024. Maybe sooner?
