    by the time i get to arizona 

    this has been an incredible year.

    tomorrow is friday the 13th. the last time we had a friday the 13th was in march.

    march.

    the month the plague began.

    today california verified its 1 millionth covid case.

    back in sweet home chicago the mayor is putting everyone in a 30 day time out.

    people of the future, i dont know what to say about this.

    it’s happening to us, but it’s happening in slow motion.

    i know people who have gotten covid.

    a former LAist editor in chief got it.

    you probably know someone who got it too.

    but because we dont know massive amounts of people who have died of it not enough people are panicking.

    sometimes Actual Fear really helps.

    last night we met a friend for dinner in Thai Town. she no longer lives in LA so you gotta say hi when you can. we ate outside in the freezing cold (50 degrees) in a parking lot, dining on some kick ass thai food under a heat lamp

    and even though she had just gotten tested, it probably wasnt the smartest move. we’re educated people. we know better.

    but humans are social people. and i dont know if it was the food or the company or the otherwise lack of social interaction among friends but afterwards we felt super good. buzzed almost.

    and no we didnt drink a drop of booze.

    good friends gabbing for 90 minutes is nice. seeing each others eyes is nice.

    but so is living through the end of all of this.

    my brother wants to have a socially distanced thanksgiving and i dont think thats a good idea

    can you imagine if i got him sick and he never recovered?

    id never recover.

    so yes, people of the future, thats what life is like right now on Thursday the 12th

    as we eagerly await for the grownups to return to the white house to fix this fucking shit.
