COVID-19: Quarantine Self Help Group

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! 

Who here is in quarantine? 

I'm on day 3 and it's starting to drag. Maybe we can share some experiences, humor, etc.

Happy we have a garden. Otherwise the kids would start to go crazy.

I am re-watching the entirety of Star Trek: Voyager in bed. It is better than I remember.

Day two here.  I do somewhat feel sick enough that I'm not up to doing loads anyway, I think it'll be a lot tougher when I feel better.

Oh, I would love to binge watch. But with the kids it's not an option. 

I've watched ST Voyeger twice. First time in the 90ies on videos sent from the US.

Why are you in quarantine if you're not sick?

You should all be cleaned and burned, its the selfishness of people like yourself greedily clinging onto your petty little lives that made it so the plague spread when it did :lol:

Precaution because I was in direct contact with someone who is.

Nothing, but herbs.:lol:

It's more like a little park with bushes, trees, a little hill and play stuff for the kids. Husband keeps it going.

The later seasons once the characters start to grow, but there are still some bizzare episodes that never should have been aired. Theresold is just bizzare for example.

Haha, I have a dedicated herb garden myself! Currently Im growing some basil and anise in my indoor garden because its winter here. Id be really bored without my indoor garden! When it warms up at least I can sit out back. This sucks!! :lol:

That sounds like a great quarantine oasis for the kiddos.

Haha, Are you indoor-gardener-shaming me? :lol: Its the way of the future, you'll see :P

Im not currently growing the crops that I use UV lights on :slash::ph34r:.  Just kale and those herbs I mentioned above. About to experiment with a solar lighting rig too!

They concentrated a lot on Neelix and Kes in the early episodes and the Kazon were ''poor man's Klingons'' really. The show perked-up when they ditched the Kazon and brought in Seven of Nine and the Borg, Species 8472 and others. They sort of created this tug of war between Janeway and Seven which was an excellent direction. Throughout however The Doctor is the heart of the show, and he forms this bond with Seven when she arrives so it isn't as if he was ever eclipsed by Seven's arrival. Even in the early seasons you still get these poignant stand alone Doctor episodes such as ''Lifesigns'' and ''Real Life''. The Doctor was what Data was for TNG. I have noticed the budget got ratcheted-up about season four also. It surprised me how cheap certain episodes seasons 1-3 look. 

''Threshold'' is truly one of the worst episodes of Trek, up there with ''Spock's Brain'' and ''Angel One'', and is utterly hilarious. Just watched an absolute stinker of a season five episode involving Chakotay as a boxer - I hate Chakotay episodes, mystic Indian bollocks.

Chakotay as I recall ends up moved to a side character who doesn't have much to do in the later seasons.

Seven gets introduced as sex appeal by the show runners, but her character really grows towards the end.

I'm sure you've seen it, but Move Along Home an early ds9 episode is worse than all those imo. 

Robert Picardo? who played the emh is to be in Picard season 2.

Maybe Ill get into Star Trek while Im here. I need something thats new and outside my normal stuff - everything familiar has instantly become boring. At a quick glance Voyager has some good looking ladies.

There is nothing better than a bad Star Trek episode. Another terrible episode is that one where Beverly Crusher gets raped by a ghost in Scotland. And then there is that one on a swingers colony, the mangina meme,

I would rock at being in quarantine as long as I have my music, books, guitar and movies. I could be in isolation for a very long time before I would get bored or stir-crazy, if at all.

My husband doesn't have Coronavirus, however he has the worst cough and cold, so is self-isolating. I'm on my third day of solo parenting and am utterly bored. 

I've already been to the cinema, made crafts, done Play-Doh, McDonalds, tried to get her to ride her bike, read books, been to the park, and relied on Cbeebies way too much. I'm all out of parenting skills. I just want a few hours to read a book with a cup of tea when I'm not already exhausted.

Sounds rough. At least mine sleep most of the weekend now. Failing that I can bung them a few xbox points and go hide. :lol:
