Coronavirus Pandemic, day 3 of Social Distancing!! If anyone is still out there, I’m alive, but struggling. Food is running low. Have only 462 days worth. My hands are raw & super sanitized and my butt is sparkly, ass-wipe clean. Down to 2499 rounds of ammo (dropped 1 round down the heat vent while doing daily inventory). I’ve gained 6 pounds as I will not neglect to try & keep myself healthy through this turmoil. Power still on, but for how long? Missing human interaction; but, I have my hamsters, for now.. (I'm soaking their food in BBQ sauce in an attempt to marinate them from the inside, just in case I have to eat them). I fear dark days ahead. News is mostly bad. Neighbors have attempted to leap from windows to their death, (or near death... most have single story homes so they are badly bruised & infected by cactus needles). Blew through most HULU series so may have to re-watch some again and trying to recall the good ol’ days while listening to Donnie & Marie records. Daily Survival is a never-ending challenge. I vow to persevere to the end, I am a survivor as I have watched 22 seasons and can negotiate properly with my inner demons. Please, if there is life out there, communicate with me, send a flare or flash me in private message, (female only, por favor) to help preserve my sanity.. ....
