Hello friends, my internet was out for nearly 24 hours, and since I work from home that was very stressful. It actually went out when I was in the middle of leading a presentation to 50 of my colleagues, but luckily it wasn’t a me problem it was a Shaw problem so half my colleagues also lost internet. But I hotspotted off my phone for the rest of yesterday’s work day and most of today’s. I’m very glad that I upgraded my phone last year, as prior to that I only had 100MB of data and I would not have been able to do that.
I am also insanely glad it was the weekend, I got one of the Microsoft productivity report things and according to it I took phone calls after midnight, answered emails at 5:30 a.m. and worked late 6 days this week, even though the work week is only 5 days. One of the communities I support also had their COVID-19 cases nearly triple overnight, so I’m in need of some rest.
But beyond that, let’s get into the fun stuff shall we?
Last February, the AGO in Toronto did a series on Studio 54 with guests Diane von Furstenburg and André Leon Talley, I got to Zoom with them and it was a bit of a creative lifeline while I was unemployed, so in memory of André Leon Talley.
