It’s Been So Long Now

Does anyone have an official start date for Shelter@Home in Wisconsin? How long has it been? I know that in the time it took to type this sentence I could have looked up this information, but I didn’t. 

That’s how creativity works, baby. I just keep the keys a-clickety-clacking. Then I alternate between mugs full of coffee and mugs full of frozen margs. While you were all out there spending your Covid-19 bucks on things like guitars or game consoles, maybe some extra guac, I was investing. Legally, I think I have to say that this is not really investing advice and past performance is not an indicator of future success. I should also note that this entire record of trivia updates should serve as a warning against my business advice. I just suggested that extra guac, a guitar and a game console cost roughly the same. I don’t know if that is true or false. It’s been so long since I’ve been anywhere. 

Anyway, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters and Rap Emporium invested in a frozen margarita machine. Sure, I’m unhealthier now than I have ever been, but my mouth is so goddamn blue. It’s mind blowing. I don’t even know what flavor the blue ones are supposed to be, and I really don’t even know what color blue is. 

I guess what I’m getting at is that I’m going to be really bummed if they end this whole ordeal on day 68. 

That said, we have done a great job over the last few weeks raising hundreds of dollars for a small rack of causes, and spent a ton of money with Company Brewing and Glass Nickel. It’s all really amazing.

I was thinking about the money raised over the last few weeks and how it would be okay to just take a break from raising money, but then Tunnelsnakes Take Chicago suggested doing something in response to the shooting of Ahmuad Arbery, and yeah, that’s about all the convincing I needed.
