Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

I love all the cat love here at Dramabeans, but now for some dog love. Mostly because it is sweet. Henry Golding and his wife became foster parents to a dog named Stella. They are in LOVE.

So in the US, wear a mask if you must go out, but keep 6ft apart still. But for the next two weeks try not to go anywhere at all even for groceries or to pharmacy.

Stay safe everyone.

    Been like this for the last ~3 weeks in Canada for us, and we are still considered as being “slow” and “sluggish” in our response to this situation 😥😥😥

      In most states everything but essential businesses are shut. People were encouraged to only go outside for groceries, pharmacy, and exercise and practice social distancing. Even, I believe, most optometrists, dentist, and even doctors had canceled appointments that were not absolutely necessary.
      We started with a message of mask are not needed to please wear one or something across your mouth and nose.

      This new call to avoid groceries and pharmacies is because these next two weeks are projected to be the peak for many areas. I really hope it is not as bad as they are calling for, but with how this has been going I wouldn’t be surprised if it was worse.
      Apparently our surgeon general is comparing what could come this next week to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

        Yea, it’s the same thing for us. Just last week, my dentist called me to cancel my appointment that was supposed to happen on April 1st.

        I know that some parts of Canada, including the province that I live in—Alberta— only JUST finished all the backlogged testing for Covid from all the travel that people did before the borders shut down. Now it’s a matter of playing catch up to make sure we get all of the cases in time to calm down the community spread that’s been increasing every few days, especially in long-term care places for people with compromised immune systems.

        As for Asia, a second wave is already starting. I have a friend who’s currently living in S.Korea (her husband is in the U.S. Navy and has been deployed to S.Korea since January, and of course, my friend moved with her husband). Up until 2 weeks ago, the little city that she lives in was fine, but then all of a sudden, cases began appearing around town and now, even the military base they live on has cases, so they’re in complete lockdown. Food, groceries, and meds are now being delivered so that there’s no reason for people to go out, and if you absolutely have to go out, it’s now a bylaw that you’re required to wear a mask, otherwise, you could be fined or jailed

          I dont even know how much testing is being done here it is such a mess.

          The idea of a second wave is so scary. I know the medical field is trying to warn people but I dont know if it is really being stressed enough.

            The medical field is doing their best, and kudos to them for it, but ultimately, it comes down to individual choice and common sense as to whether or not people will follow physical distancing guidelines and whatnot… I know for one, my sister isn’t really following the physical distancing guidelines very well and is still choosing to visit friends and choosing to bring her own son (my nephew, yes, so it terrifies me) and her boyfriend’s son from place to place. So every time they come over, I am obsessively cleaning and washing my hands, which is all I can do DX
            That is why, it’s a bit of a relief that monetary fines/jail time have become a thing for my city for breaking protocol for mass gatherings (no more than 15 in most places and the daycares that were forced to reopen, but only for the children of healthcare workers… E.g. If a daycare has 5 people on staff, that daycare cannot have more than 10 children in their care at one time), for people riding in the same car who are not a part of the same household, and for people who are not keeping 6 ft. apart while out in the open/public spaces

      My city might be the worst. The number of people who come for groceries at our store everyday just doesn’t make sense. It’s packed every single day 🤦‍♀️

When the Weather is Nice ep10: I love happy, playful, and in love Hae-won.

It looks like, though no official word yet, that I will be home from work for longer than first expected. Though not a loss of love but the loss of my usual routine has left me feeling a bit afloat. This just reflects much of my mood right now.
Goodnight, Beanies.

Ashes of Life
BY EDNA ST. VINCENT MILLAY
Love has gone and left me and the days are all alike;
Eat I must, and sleep I will, — and would that night were here!
But ah! — to lie awake and hear the slow hours strike!
Would that it were day again! — with twilight near!

Love has gone and left me and I don’t know what to do;
This or that or what you will is all the same to me;
But all the things that I begin I leave before I’m through, —
There’s little use in anything as far as I can see.

Love has gone and left me, — and the neighbors knock and borrow,
And life goes on forever like the gnawing of a mouse, —
And to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow
There’s this little street and this little house.

When the Weather is Nice ep 9:

So many sweet and warm moments in this episode. I love the chemistry that is developing between Hae-won and Eun-seob. I\’m not too sure I was happy with the childhood connection, but I liked this line of Eun-seob\’s:
\”I fell for you a couple of times before, but that was one of the times.\”
Also at the end how Hae-won imagines that they will take turns going to each other to keep each other warm.

It is finally April! One of the things I love about April, at least where I am, is that I really can feel the change of seasons. One day it will be 70 degrees with the bluest skies and the air will smell so full of blooming and growing and the next the skies are lowered and dark and the rain cocoons you in your own little world.

For a goodnight on the first day of April to anyone who loves rain and with inspiration from The Goodnight Book Club:

April Rain Song

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk The rain makes running pools in the gutter The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

Langston Hughes

Lucinda Williams’ Car Wheels on a Gravel Road.
I love this song. Even though it is obviously rooted in the South I find it such a universal snapshot of childhood. I think some find it a sadder song than I do.
It definitely touches on the vulnerability of children and the confusion of a life that is directed often by the whims and moods of adults.
But I also remember that feeling of watching the world go by through a car window as the radio played, learning the first voices of the soundtrack that will make up your life.

Apparently John Prine is in critical condition with Covid 19. I dont know much of his music but this song and his cover of Clay Pigeons (look it up❤)is often on my playlist.

The talk of Welcome with the cat boy and underwear makes me think of this comercial.

Tonight I needed something that I want to sing along to as I make dinner.
I always thought they’d have been an awesome concert to go to.

Hard times baby, well they come to us all
Sure as the tickin’ of the clock on the wall
Sure as the turnin’ of the night into day
Your smile girl, brings the mornin’ light to my eyes
Lifts away the blues when I rise
I hope that you’re coming to stay

I’m waitin’, waitin’ on a sunny day
Gonna chase the clouds away
Waitin’ on a sunny day

Completely off the topic of K dramas, but found this interesting. It was linked on the Fug girls. There is a small video of Queen Mary\’s doll house being cleaned and restored where needed. I just found it interesting. The craftsmanship that went into this looks amazing, those little books and the upholstery. I\’m also curious how one chooses this as a career, like what type of schooling or apprenticeship. Now I want a drama with a heroine who works in a museum.

    I saw this from the Fug Girls too, it’s neat. Many of my friends work in museums (or museum adjacent, e.g. archives, management of historic places) and it seems like a really interesting sector to work in. Most of them did museum studies at university. I’m not sure what you’d study for restoration work though as that would be a whole layer of speciality.

Tired. Angry. Hurt.
I’m not surprised but still it is awful to see the numbers and the President’s response is to wonder how soon he can send us back out to keep the economy going.

You feel to moan but unlike before
You discover
That you’d just be
One more person crying.
So don’t fear if you hear
A foreign sound to your ear
It’s alright, Ma, I’m only sighing.

Just a mini rant:

I\’m over people hoarding. I\’ll admit I did double up on my dog food, but otherwise just tried to buy 2 weeks worth of stuff at a time.
The supply will be there if the demand stays the same. Just frustrating. 😠

    Same!And it’s unfortunate because I’m trying to limit my visits to the grocery store but when I go people have already raided things I need. I’ve just had to go without since I don’t want to risk going to several stores in one outing.

      There is amazon, but with the virus popping up in the warehouses I’m debating if I still want to use them.
      I’m not following it closely but sort of want them to stop for a few days and make sure there staff is able to stay safe and all precautions in order.

        Yeah I’m wary about that too! I’m just trying to take all the precautions possible. At least I have food in my pantry.

    My parents searched all of the city we live in to find a place with toilet paper. It took us days to find a store with stock. We ended up buying a bunch, but only because we were afraid other people would buy too much and we’d be out of luck. Goes to show that this is a feedback loop.

    I’m freaked out by grocery contamination. It’s the thing that scares me the most. I have barely left my house in two weeks, we’re religious about disinfecting surfaces, we wash our hands constantly, etc. But we can’t control whether infected people are around the food we buy.

      That happened to a friend who lives in a city, days to find toilet paper.

      It is a weird feeling to feel like your groceries could be dangerous. I never thought I’d find myself wiping them down with a bleach cleaner before I put them away.

I\’m probably going to donate my two dollars, because I love this place. But not today.
The timing made me mad.
I\’m giving the benefit of the doubt that it couldn\’t be helped, but today I\’m mad.
But I can afford the two dollars for the real content I want which is the content generated by the other Beanies.
The incentives seem odd to me. I dont want a badge, I think I have Kocowa with my Viki subscription and, while annoying, the ads didn\’t bother me. Except that one big beanie box ad. Plus just having the ads is apparently away for everyone to make money right now. This is something that the fug girls put up for how to help your favorite blogs right now.

My state finally went on a stay at home order. Mostly I feel relief, but also some fear, anxiety and anger mixed in for different reasons. I wish the whole country was doing the same.
Right now I want everyone to stay in place but those who are providing services. But this song has been playing in my head, even though I dont drive.🤣 But man I have always loved a road or day trip. Hopefully soon for everyone:

On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again🤣

I\’m in love with the book club in When the Weather is Nice.
I was wondering does anyone want to do a Goodnight Book Club for April?
I was thinking if anyone wants to just post something before bed, as a goodnight to Beanies. A quote, poem, illustration, a reading, or whatever.
Fluffy or deep. Serious or silly.

Just an idea.

Music March.
The songs that leave me wanting more, though they are perfect in their brevity. Those songs that are barely 2 minutes long but so genius, beautiful, or just fun and I need more.
Like Pink Moon by Nick Drake or Dont Leave Nobody But the Baby from Oh, Brother. I need more but wouldnt change them, so repeat it is to just get enough of them.

And this one from Big Star. Just love it.

Won’t you let me walk you home from school?
Won’t you let me meet you at the pool?
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I’ll take you
Ooh-hoo

      So, I have such affection for Pentagon. They are who brought me into kpop. I saw E’Dawn’s Organic song which led to Shine and then down the rabbit hole.
      But I havent kept up with there newer music, it hasnt hooked me like that older stuff which I still listen to. But I’m excited to see them on here and to hear some of Hui’s high notes.
      I really hope Yanan is a part of it though.

        Yes I really hope Yanan is a part of it too, and I too haven’t been keeping up with them as much after E’dawn left :'( but I do listen to their title tracks and I really liked their recent comeback, really hope to see them shine through this
