    Broken Area- Episode 419 - I Have Weird Ideas and I Act On Them

    That’s Isabelle talking…

    Isabelle is getting bread ties from Australia.

    She makes art with them.

    I order masks as a sort of. hobby now.

    We’re back face to face in the classroom on Feb 7.

    I forgot to get Jon’s beer, so we had to go to the beer store, so you get a nice tour of the beer store.

    I have shovelled the driveway 50 times so far.

    Broken Area - Episode 418 - Baby It's Cold Outside

    -28 is cold. I don’t care what temperature scale you are using.

    My first week back teaching online, went well.

    Isabelle has some great stuff coming up at her micro gallery.

    It was fun hearing her process.

    Saw two people today with their noses not covered. Idiots.

    Wore an N95 to shop today, so there’s that.

    Seems like there were fewer people out than usually, but that may be because we went shopping about 30 min earlier than usual.

    Did I mention how freaking cold it was?

    Broken Area - Episode 417 - Trepidatious

    Back on our Saturday schedule.

    No LCBO trip this week, we’re good for booze.

    We checked Tom’s house for the last time.

    I’m not really ready for my sabbatical to end.

    I wonder how the term will go.

    Some people leave their noses out of their masks.

    I am cynically and cautiously optimistic.

    I actually said ‘if we put a man on the moon’ without irony.

    Broken Area - Episode 416 - Off Ramp to Tom's House

    Yup, another Wednesday cast. We’ll be back to normal Saturday.

    I lost my points, then I got them back.

    Jon is doing online school for a bit.

    I hate MS Teams with every fibre of my being.

    Isabelle go another grants!

    The stores were quiet.

    No bag or box!

    The sign is not offensive.

    Broken Area - Episode 415 - Rosary of Potholes

    Another excellent title from Isabelle.

    Christmas has come and gone.

    Isabelle has been arting.

    She also made a video, and here is the link.

    I’m getting ready for the term.

    Happy New Year, or, end of this year!

    I thought the worst thing about the twenties was going to be flapper themed parties. I was wrong.

    Isabelle is a big fan of Highway Through Hell.

    WEDNESDAY! THE WHOLE WORLD HAS COME UNGLUED!

    Well it turns out that Saturday is Christmas, so yeah, we shopped today.

    Also, we had Jon along!

    The three of us had our third shots today.

    It snowed a lot.

    This is our Christmas episode.

    We both like Christmas carols, and we’re atheists.

    This is my first Moderna, after two Pfizers.

    Oh and of course, Merry Christmas.
