THINGS TO DO WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING

You are probably stuck indoors.
Hopefully.
And no, it’s not the end of the world, so stop feeling sorry for yourself.
History tells us that we’ve been here before ( Google the Spanish flu) and we came out on the other side fine.
We’ll win this one too.
If you are done and dusted with the tissue challenge and you are asking yourself what next, we can help.

We have put together a daily list of things (legal) that you can do while isolated.
All you need to do is check this space daily to get the ‘iso-list’ task for the day.

Details of Day 1 in a bit.

Thank us later

Two neighbours stuck at home discover “Love in the Time of Corona.” One story a day. (Erotica/PG 18)

Here’s a short excerpt from Day 2:

Just then my phone rang.

It was my sister on another whatsapp video call.
She wanted to know where I was and when I said a friend’s house she said “You should be social distancing you know, not going about eating free food.”
Once she hung up, Taiye tore into me.
“I agree, you should be social distancing. I don’t even know what i am doing with IJGB”
“What’s IJGB?” I asked and she laughed.
“That’s millennial speak for I Just Got Back.”
“Gerrout joor,” I said then looking into her eyes I added. “The only social distancing I need are those long legs of yours parting.”
“What?” Taiye cried and flung a throw pillow at me again. “You eat my free food, drink my free wine and you want free pu$$y too.”
“Yup,” I said reaching over and throwing the pillow back at her…
Ghen Ghen.

Quramo Writers Prize Opens for Submission.

We intercepted a tweet from Quramo publishing.

And because you are a writer or an abridged version of the job, we think it is pertinent that you receive this news.

Quramo Writers Prize is open.

Pandemic or not.

Here’s what the intercepted message contains:

Message begins.

“If you’re a writer, or if you’ve always wanted to write something, one of the things you can do during this compulsory “stay at home” period…”

“…(apart from adhering to the health/safety instructions of the Ministry of Health and World Health Organization), is WRITE. You have nothing but time now, so take out your laptop and “just do it…”

“…Then, maybe when you’re done (if it’s a fiction story you wrote) it could be worth taking a chance with by submitting it for our #QWP2020. Who knows? You just might win the cash prize and publishing contract…!”

“…AND because of the pandemic outbreak #COVID19, we’ve decided to extend our deadline to an unprecedented 4 months from now!
Don’t miss out on this opportunity. “

Paris Museums Put 100,000 Images Online for Unrestricted Public Use

Paris Musées, a collection of 14 museums in Paris have recently made high-res digital copies of 100,000 artworks freely available to the public on their collections website. Artists with works in the archive include Rembrandt, Monet, Picasso, Cézanne, and thousands of others. From Hyperallergic:

Paris Musées is a public entity that oversees the 14 municipal museums of Paris, including the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Petit Palais, and the Catacombs. Users can download a file that contains a high definition (300 DPI) image, a document with details about the selected work, and a guide of best practices for using and citing the sources of the image.

“Making this data available guarantees that our digital files can be freely accessed and reused by anyone or everyone, without any technical, legal or financial restraints, whether for commercial use or not,” reads a press release shared by Paris Musées.

What a treasure trove this is. I was particularly happy to see a bunch of work in here from Eugène Atget, chronicler of Parisian streets, architecture, and residents and one of my favorite photographers.
