WHATS THE MOST PATHETIC THING YOU'VE DONE FOR ENTERTAINMENT DURING THIS PANDEMIC

Today, I actually watched several episodes of "Love after Lockup"......I'm desperately worried I might tune into Dr. Phil tomorrow. So how do the rest of you stuck at home spend quality time on more civilized pursuits? I received 4 books today from Amazon, but they are all "Trump is a psychopath written by dozens of authors who actually worked with him". Everybody knows who Trump is, and they either don't care or they are patriots trying to keep the American Dream and Democracy alive. Vote, God-dammit in Nov 2020......lets give Donald all day to watch FoxNews and Golf......He already does, so we can relieve him of all the pesky 'real' leadership' role.........This ain't a high school drama club........I know it was fun when we were in high school.....but not something the "Leader of the Free World" (sic) should be doing......

@glitterbag,
I seem to have become addicted to jigsaw puzzles.

I'm spending way too much time on them instead of doing the all the productive things I have every good intention of doing when I wake up each morning.

And I keep telling myself there's always tomorrow to do something useful.

@glitterbag,
I built a wooden model of the Schooner BLUENOSE. Its a Canadian symbol I believe it was on a nickel.

I had a set of plans from a kit and just recreate the hull from a "half hull" used by old yacht builders to make the lines of a boats hull in an exact scale. Took over a month of about an hour a day and some weekends of maybe 3 hours on Sundays when we werent out . I want to build a model of the Great Lakes Ore Carrier "Mesabi Miner". I did a trip from the "range" down to Cleveland long ago on the Miner and loved it. It was in the spring and it was breezy and comfortable with no incidents or rough waters. DMIR was my client then and I think they leased the Miner from Interlake, not sure. It was a fascinating project that involved science and maritime environmental law.
Just cleanin the cobwebs outta the meat computer

Heading home after a short stop at Monhegan ( If we have to quarantine, we will just putt around the island so I can get some photos of Rockwell Kent painting scenes). Supposed to be decent weather next few.

@Teufel,
I can't even guess how many times I've started to compose a response to some idiotic post and then wonder why the hell I'm even bothering. What's especially pathetic is trying to rationalize the effort by figuring I've already got fifteen minutes of my time invested in the project, so I can't stop now...

@hightor,
It's too easy to get sucked in, it's a trap.

I can't think of anything. I've kept myself well entertained.

Good grief. With all the good TV that is available to watch?

I recently binge-watched Wisting (with subtitles of course), Home Before Dark, and both seasons of Liar.

I'm thinking of watching Greyhound (the WWII Battle of the Atlantic movie) this afternoon.

I might re-watch The Rook at some point now that I've read the books.

@engineer,
I didn't think it would be pathetic, I had hopes...

I actually tried to converse with a few of our A2K trolls., but it's almost impossible to get anything coherent, or coax someone to entertain the possibility of a compromise or a share thoughts where we can agree.

That's how pathetically bored I am since the Trump Plague poisoned the 50 states of America and our territories.

Rewrite the songs that make the whole world cringe
Re-right the wrongs in an A2K binge
Recite to nongs that come here to impinge
Rewrites belong to those who whinge

This hits so deep within me
That the place has it's own zip code
And when I look out here with glee
I'm free again, even though I'm largely ode

Rewrite the songs that make the whole world twinge
Re-right the wrongs in the A2K fringe
Recite to nongs that come here to infringe
Rewrites belong to those unhinged

Found myself on YouTube watching all the Lost In The Pond and It's A Southern Thing videos...there's quite a lot of them.

Then I decided to watch all the murder and serial killer shows available on Netflix while eating Oreo cookies and Fritos. Fortunately, I fell asleep.

@Sturgis,
Oreo cookies sound kind of nice right about now. I have to scrape the white filler out, it's too sweet for me. Suddenly had a flash back to my mothers chocolate chip cookies and a cold glass of milk. If she lived, she would have turned 98 yesterday.

This might not be pathetic, but I was trolling thru Youtube and found videos of much younger people listening to Janis Joplin, Peggy Lee, Led Zeppelin and a Buch of artists they had never heard of before. I was a lot of fun seeing people so young respond to the music that many of us older folks discovered in our early years. I'm not sure how I ran up on it, but it's usually "Twins listen to ............" or two sisters listen to.............." It was very satisfying seeing newbies enjoy the 'old' stuff.

@glitterbag,
One of those went super viral causing Phil Collins' records to shoot up the charts.
