So, how is everyone doing out there? Akemi and I have battened down the hatches and are preparing to ride out the storm. We have balcony door open for ventilation, the air purifier running 24/7, and only venturing out for Suji’s walks, maintaining that six foot distance from others. Akemi, being Japanese, insists on taking the extra precaution of wearing a mask. I’ve been working from home for several months now so I don’t expect the isolation to really change things for us (although I will miss our occasional walks to SOMA for chocolate), but I am concerned for many others, especially those losing income as a result of businesses temporarily shutting down. And don’t even get me started on the stock market.
Having delivered the second episode of TimEscape, I am thinking of shifting gears to writing that feature (I was planning to write while in Montreal). To be honest, with everything that’s going on, I haven’t been in much of a writing mood, so I’ll see how things go.
How are things in your town or city? Here in Toronto, not really much in the way of panicking outside of a rush on toilet paper (which I, frankly, don’t understand). Akemi has noted that the supermarkets have been clear of certain standard items: cleaning products, frozen dinners, and some fresh produce. There was talk last night that the mayor was going to enact a city-wide lockdown, but it appears those rumors were unfounded. Foot traffic seems to be down in my neighborhood, yet restaurants and bars are apparently still pretty busy. Which is, I suppose, good for those local businesses – but perhaps bad with regard to containment.
I must admit, the one thing I have the hardest time doing – even harder than NOT touching my face, is NOT kissing my dog.
Bruno Bittner was Chief Lighting Technician for over one hundred episodes of the #Stargate franchise (SGA and SGU). Great guy, ever-dependable, and an avid sturgeon fisherman. pic.twitter.com/Kl6fkud8WM

Jennifer Johnson was Post-Production Coordinator over 66 episodes of #SG1, then an Associate Producer for over 150+ episodes of #Stargate. Organized, easy-going, and a lot of fun to work with. pic.twitter.com/lvvsUL3vI5

I had the pleasure of working with actor Marc Bendavid (@marcbendavid) on #DarkMatter where he played the roles of ONE and Jace Corso (and alt Jace Corso!). Thoughtful, well-spoken, and a great dining companion. pic.twitter.com/1PFeFGPgqc
