canta's covid-19 series Day #7

Note from the digital editor

Kia ora readers!

Well we’re officially one week into this lockdown… and I don’t really know how to feel about that. All I know is that this is boring as fuck. Buuuuuuut it’s for the greater good, so, if you’re anything like me, suck it up. We have to do this. 

How have I been occupying myself? Well none of you really care, but i’ve been consistently eating non-stop in order to distract myself. My god, how strange are supermarkets at the moment? The atmosphere. So strange.

Also, has anyone else noticed that a lot of people seem to think that social distancing also means no eye contact? It’s okay to look at people, acknowledge their existence. It’s just that we shouldn’t be making out and fucking raw at the moment, that’s basically the gist of all the rules.

Anyways, it’s great to see all the ways people have been occupying themselves. Pillow forts, TikTok dancing, painting, sewing, Sims, gardening, themed dinner parties, it’s actually quite remarkable how we’ve not all immediately resorted to binge-watching yet. Well done us. Let CANTA know about all the funny things you’ve been doing.

Today I comforted myself in the fact I’m probably doing as much as our Deputy Prime Minister, Winston Peters, is right now. This resulted in me writing what I believe is probably Winston Peter’s lockdown timetable (read below). Now there’s no evidence to suggest that it’s accurate, but I bet you it is. 

Okay well that’s it.

Bye from Liam.
