Hey Pandas, it’s me again, back with another quarantine Q&A. What is the craziest, silliest, most fun thing you’ve done during quarantine? Did you walk your dog wearing a dinosaur suit? Did you put on fancy clothes to just take out the trash? What did you do out of boredom, or to make other people laugh? I want to know!
I realized yesterday whilst driving for supplies, I was 'social distancing' my car whilst waiting for the traffic lights to change! When I realized how crazy this was, I was also annoyed at the driver behind me thinking he was too darned close! Lord knows what's going on in my subconscious!
Texted my friend that I was hanging out with a cute boy, then sent my dog's picture.
I joined a Facebook group where we all pretend to be ants in an ant colony. 1 Million + people all commenting L I F T, B I T E, B R I N G T O Q U E E N.... pretty fun actually. :-D
Made way too many desserts, filled up the fridge with chocolate, then I ate waayyy to much. Oops.🤢
Today I bought myself my very first smart phone. For people who know me, this is a big deal. Unfortunately my dumb phone isn’t working very well since they are phasing out 3G, sigh. Guess it is time for me to get with the times. Tomorrow I will be dying my hair pinky red and attempting to pluck my own eyebrows. Wish me luck.
I took care of myself for the first time since...ages...
I forgot the feeling to rest in a bath, with music and glass of wine, in the middle of the afternoon, with nobody to interrupt me because they need something.
Slept in. Never have I ever been able to sleep in in my life.
I hold weekly concerts for Sora and Eli, my cat and dog. Will show them to their seats and everything (yes snacks too) before jamming out and singing using a lint roller as a microphone. Eli loves it and he gets really excited but I have to be careful on song choice though, because Sora loves to twine between my legs and bite me.
To be honest part of that is my fault, I've sang to her since she was a kitten and she loves it, but usually I sing her out of hiding. Once she's next to me I'll stop singing and pick her up giving her lots of love. She doesn't understand why I'm not paying attention to her when I'm giving them their concerts. (Also not because I'm a bad singer, I'm pretty decent, but I don't hold back, full on vocals, so depending on the song I can get loud like when I do Defying Gravity).
I have a really big L-shaped closet under the stairs in my basement. It's filled with a bunch of toys and random crap. I took everything out and organized it so that it took up half the space. In the back, I filled it up with pillows, blankets, fairy lights, and chocolate, and put an easily removable vertical lid in front of the back area. As childish as it is, I love my hidden reading space.
I was watching a movie and two strangers in one scene shook hands and I whispered under my breath, "They're gonna get sick...", and then immediately realized it was a movie filmed in 2010 and not real life... I'm an idiot...
I spent 10 minutes walking around the house pretending to be a chicken.
Made a big rug for one of the bedrooms, knitted five chair cushion covers for the chairs around the eating table, made and embroidered a hugging pillow case and other two normal pillow cases, dismantled an old leather jacket to use the leather for soles for the wool slippers I am currently making. A lot of stress eating at night followed by immediate, unprovoked throwing up. Made peace, at least for the time being, with my mild agoraphobia.
I heard yesterday that the Archers (Radio show) had been cancelled for three weeks, knew my grandma would be heartbroken, started writing a script for me and my family to record and send to her. Hope it makes her day!
I built a fort/man-cave in the woods. I'm 53.
I cut my bangs! I was extremely nervous about it at first but I ended up loving how they turned out. If you're thinking about doing something like this, watch a few tutorials and hopefully you'll be fine! If you're thinking of doing it, I would say go for it because you may love how it turns out. :)))
Lost 5 kg. Took care of mother guinea fowl in yard and later Mongoose killed it.
Trying to muster up the bravery to try to cook Chinese Food on my own since all of the local Chinese places were closed. Five days ago, drove past one of my favorite spots...Gasp!!! The door is open! The door is open! Only problem now is, because they're the only Chinese place open in town, you have to place your orders by 1pm if you hope to get them by 5:30pm because they are getting swamped. But I smiled through every bite of Hunan Chicken last night. Yum!!
I found a wild bunny in my back yard and have been protecting it from the neighborhood cat. Unfortunately, the bunny doesn't trust me yet but we will become friendos. Also, it's a very smol bun.
Allowed my daughter to "mail" her coloring pages to our neighbors. We walked down the street and she put a page in every mailbox until she didn't have any left.
Tried to learn how to climb doorways
I made homemade chicken breaded in chips
I have fallen in love with my best friend. So I guess quarantine made me escape from friendzone.
I made an 8 inch wide donut out of cake mix. It was roughly 3 inches tall.
Spent my evening talking with a crow 🤦♂️
I think I've dressed up as Harry Potter, what, twice now?
I have listened to Fly Me To The Moon by Frank Sinatra on loop for about 5 hours now and I'm not gonna stop anytime soon.
I opened the world of buying online from China)) I feel I need almost everything they are offering and keep placing one order after the other. Now I keep waiting for what I ordered to come.. The quarantine proves I am a bit of shopaholic)
I recreated fabulous from high school musical using a baby pool and sent it to all my friends
I escaped quarantine checkpoints with the fam by driving about 400km through the jungle just because my in-law died and we had to come. We could make a movie outta that, I tell ya
Realising I actually miss other people.
I was banging my head against the wall a few days ago i was soooooo stressed😂😆
I learned to mountain board. I'm 53.
Took my dog for a walk and had a social distancing doggy play date.
I just drank two coffees and all it's done is make me anxious!
Gave an important talk to my dog about COVID 19.
1: No more Walks
2: No more outside
3: No more fun
Lol the craziest thing I've done during quarantine is probably... um... I don't really know! I think... well... I will get back to you when I think it ok? I don't think I've done anything crazy really. I mean I did run around the house crazily today. Do you think that counts?
Is anyone else doing this? Maybe social distancing your fruit and veg lol!
