I have been working really hard on stuff for this week, editing stuff from before, getting stuff ready for Imagine Magazine, etc...but the big goal is this...



Now, I know that these are strange times...I know that many of you are stuck at home and you may be going a little stir crazy at the moment...but this outbreak is NOTHING to play around with! Ok? The most dangerous thing that any of you can do right now is be too stubborn to take this seriously! A lot of people are trying to go about their daily lives in order to shroud themselves in a sense of denial and feel comfortable about what's going on right now. PLEASE DON'T! This is serious. I'm not suggesting that people worry and go into some sort of panic...just make sure that you're keeping yourself informed, keep clean, take all the necessary precautions, and stay at home! You're getting an official break from the rat race of life...find ways to enjoy it.

Don't be stupid! Your Spring Break beach party can wait! Your dinner party can wait! Your WEDDING can be postponed! Don't go jogging, don't pack yourself into churches/synagogues/mosques, don't take long trips, don't run out to the biggest Wal-Mart that you can find for a bunch of garbage that you don't need unless it's an emergency. WTF are people doing??? They're not only risking their own lives, but the're risking the lives of every single person that they come into contact with! People I love! People I CARE about! So stop being so fucking stubborn and stay the fuck home!!! Ok? UGH!!! I mean it! Otherwise, you're making things worse for the entire planet, and this whole process is going to take a lot longer than it has to! Stay home!

I went out of my way to make sure that you've all got plenty of stories to read for a while. And I know it won't be enough, because it's never enough for some people. But it's all I've got to contribute to the effort for now, and I wanted to do something. So read away. Play some video games, binge watch some Netflix shows, goof around on Youtube...all of those things that kept you so busy and spent hours and hours doing before when you knew, damn well, that you had other things more important that you should be doing? Well, do them now! Occupy your time. But stay HOME! And in a few weeks to a month, we might get some idea as to how long this will last, and when life can start getting back to normal.

It's just a little while. It's not too much to ask. K?

This thing just infected more than an entire Superbowl audience worth of people. And a lot of folks aren't being sensible about this, thinking "Well, life has to go on, right?" Guess what? For a rather alarming number of those people...life did 'not' go on. So be careful. Be safe. And please...stay home. Just for now.

Love you lots! And stories start at Noon...
