I think the best possible description of the current status is the song of the same name from the musical Jekyll and Hyde.
Yes, it’s remarkably gothic and angsty, but at the same time, oh so very accurate right now.
Do enjoy – this is the recording with the Australian singer Anthony Warlow – who is, frankly, magnificent. He is also that rare beast, a singer who can act, so any videos of his performances will be worth watching.
I saw him play Enjolras in the original Australian run of Les Miserable and was blown away: he’s one of a number of singers I watch for.
That said, I’m doing all right. I’ve determined that my next work laptop needs to have a side-mounted power button so the cats don’t step on the damn thing (I’m not sure how many times I’ve had to reboot because of that, but I will say I’ve gotten pretty good at reaching to cover the bloody thing when they look like they’re taking a wander over the keyboard).
The keyboard for my home machine has the power button disabled for good and sufficient reason.
Everything else apart from the Husband’s workplace shutting down is life as normal. I spend most of the day on the work computer, then I shut it down and turn my attentions elsewhere.
But as far as I can tell, the world outside our house really has gone insane.
