When stuff goes tits up bog rolls won't be my main concern.
Same with fresh milk


Most of these people won't last a week if they had to survive.

To bad the virus can't kill such idiocy
DPrinny spot on. It won't got tits up but I think you're right.

Security had to throw a woman out tonight. She was told not to lick her fingers when counting out her notes( never understood that habit) then royally kicked off. The poor lass on the checkout isn't paid enough to take censored like that. At least she's barred for three years now.

I posted a Cornholio image on Lemon 64 a couple of weeks ago. Love that cartoon and still get enjoyment from it to this day.

There a lot of episodes missing from the Mike Judge set that should be there like Couch Fishing and Closing Time. Absolute travesty.

Kinda used to it already, I can't really get out much anymore so isolation just feels like another day at the office.
Main worry is when I really really need something (I don't hoard so will buy only when needed) as my immune system is shot and even being bumped a little hurts like hell so a supermarket filled with fruit loops is not a good idea.

If your surrounded by people start coughing.

I tend to keep a few cans of stuff in incase,
I did end up in Asda early this morning (craved a chicken pie), stuff was on the shelves, got a few things for my mum then cycled up to hers.
It was weird standing at the window talking to her on the phone

Ironically I do already have a cough, don't think it is the dreded virus as dont have the rest of the symptoms but I still warn people before they come to the house so they can decide what they want to do.

Mines due to the amount of cleaning stuff I have been inhaling.

WE ARE NOW ON LOCKDOWN!!

Image
What do the new restrictions involve?
In brief: an Italian-style lockdown to force people to stay at home beyond a small range of very limited circumstances. Under the terms explained by Boris Johnson in his TV address, people will be allowed to leave home only for the following reasons:

shopping for necessities, as infrequently as possible;
one form of exercise a day, such as running or cycling, alone or with household members;
for medical or care needs, for example to help a vulnerable person;
Daytime TV
travelling to and from work, but only if you cannot work from home.
Forced wrestling match against Goldberg
Meet friends, shopping for anything beyond essentials, and gathering in crowds are now banned.
Sod the one form of exercise im doing two

So a tough situation just got tougher...

My wife went into hospital on March 2nd for major surgery. It was a nine-hour operation and she was recovering well. Then complications meant she had to go back into surgery for another three hours and she is struggling to recover from this second op.

I am now having to self-isolate for twelve weeks due to the medications I am on for Crohn's Disease.
I don't know when I will see her or my stepdaughter.

Hope you’re doing okay under the circumstances

Yeah, fingers crossed and all the best from me too.

Over here, all non-emergency surgery has been postponed indefinitely just before my wife was due to have an operation on Friday after waiting nearly a year.

These definitely aren't the best times for people who've got ongoing medical issues.

Sorry to hear that Matt, Alison had been waiting a long time for her op too. Part of me is glad she had it before the closures, but it must be tough to be kept waiting. Hope your wife will be ok.

Yeah, she's fine. It's obviously not anything too urgent and she's somewhat relieved not to have to go to a hospital at the moment, while there are going to be a lot of people carrying the virus who don't even know it.
