UP early despite still feeling shite…I have some medals to design and prototypes to produce for someone organising a fundraising running event.
While the prototypes are processing I realise it’s not raining – I need some video footage to use as an animation reference so I grab the gear, jump on the bike and race up the lochside to the desired spot.
Typically, it started raining as soon as I started the ride but I get some video footage and home in time for my first Zoom guitar student of the day. Whether the footage is any use will be another matter!
Once the guitar lesson is done I finish off the video script transcription then have some lunch.
While in the kitchen I make some poolish – a fermented starter – for some pizza dough I’ll make later in the week.
Betty calls to see if I have any spare covid testing kits. I do, so I wander along and drop them off.
Back home I make some red cabbage slaw to go with tonight’s pulled pork, some BBQ sauce and cut some chips then prepare some stuff for tonight’s livestream into my Wildcats’ group on Facebook then get bogged down in the animation that I’m struggling to get off the ground. I wonder if I’m over-thinking and over-complicating the whole thing.
Around 6pm I notice Facebook and Instagram aren’t working…seems – and other apps owned by Facebook like WhatsApp – are down. Mmm…wil it be back up in time for my 8pm livestream?
I have another Zoom guitar student at 7pm and when we finish Facebook is still down. I send out a email saying tonight’s livestream’s clearly not gonna be happening and post same on Twitter and LinkedIn.
