    Next Generation? Oh yes please.

    Must say I loved the movie, it gave a shitty week a wonderful end and I still have the fuzzies 20h later. That hasn't happened in a very, very long time. Watched it with my kids and other half, and we had a blast. Characters are great, the music is good to great and always fits, the jokes landed. References and also themes that will go over most kids' heads but are satisfying and often funny to

    Six years and a day ago...

    ...the one thing happened that made me write my first fimfiction story, Northland.

    TThe Last Pony on Earth
    One day, Earth. The next, everyone is gone and I'm a pony. What the heck is going on?

    Damn.

    I got a a really nice comment on it today and now I feel both happy and sad.
    At my current pace the next chapter of Northland should be out at about May 2025. :ajsleepy:

    The iPone has arrived - and people are spontaneously combusting

    I think the new pones are ridiculously cute, and a smartphone (regardless of how it works - we're officially in the far future after all) with a hoof-indent for better, uhm, handling is peak adorable. That's got to be one of the next inventions in the Track-Switch verse, for mankind's ongoing quest to become more accommodating to ponykind.

    Not dead, new story, lots of coffee

    So, yeah, I'm not dead.
    I had a really, really shitty time that recently ended with me losing my job, which I hated.

    Apparently that sudden freedom was what was needed to lift my writer's block and I wrote a new story, that may or may not be a one-shot.

This is getting somewhat concerning · 10:36pm Mar 11th, 2020

Right. As of 3 hours ago, Denmark is officially in lockdown and I'm being sent home for two weeks.

Our case numbers jumped from 35 on Monday to over 500 today. Schools, universities, etc. closed from tomorrow and bars and restaurants from next Monday. But damn am I happy the government is following their scientific advisers - maybe we'll not end up like Italy. Hopefully.

Now how to survive with three bored kids for at least two weeks, but probably longer...

But maybe I'll get to write something again, after I kinda hit a brick wall of stress before Christmas.
Good thing I strategically stocked up the pantry over the course of last week, because tomorrow, supermarkets are going to be like...

Really. Don't be like that. :b
And why is it always bog roll?

Anyway, just felt the need to put this out there.
Take care everybody.

Yikes. Stay safe.

(I'm almost jealous. The governor declared a state of emergency yesterday, but I'm still expected at work.)

Stay safe, and with the three cooped-up kids, endeavour to stay sane as well.

Still working and travelling as normal in Scotland, but I suspect the days where I'm asked to work from home aren't far off.

I wish I knew what that was like. :|

That's...worrying :twilightoops:

Be safe man.

Thank you, and you too. At least the governor appears to take it seriously then.

endeavour to stay sane as well

That might end up being the bigger challenge ;)
Don't you have a remote cottage at your disposal? That would appear perfect. Might also mean some horsewords from you, if past experience is any guide. :raritywink:

You have no idea how positively surprised I was. Hope all goes well for you. Be safe.

Thanks. Yeah, having a history of respiratory ailments I'm suddenly quite happy to be stranded in a boring little village in the absolute middle of nowhere and having the option to work from home.

Australia seems to be edging towards lockdown as well, although our distance from everyone is helping.

5218695
Yep, remoteness suddenly got even more appeal ;)
Hope everything goes well for you as well.

Fleeing for the croft away from civilisation's definitely looking increasingly tempting. Publishing new horsewords also. :raritywink:

You do that. Seriously.
