And yeah, it was Meddle. I was there today actually! I can go to work twice this week, how hype. :wink: Glad your finding yourself on a better footing. I haven't heard of Standing Passengers but I'll have to check it out. I like going to local cafes and I try to spend large amounts of cash at the ones around my house right now just to help support them. Pretty worried about a lot of businesses around here, even if more are starting to crawl out into the sun.


Yeah, I totally get that. We did takeout from some of our favorite spots even though we shouldn't have. Even though I don't know when (or if -- although I'm not selling my condo) I'll live in Chicago again, I'll die a little bit if Matchbox, Pub Royale, or Queen Mary go under. They're all superb. (All in West Town / WP). Another Dark Matter tidbit: Hash on Western just north of Division has their own blend. Great brunch. Just tiny so you'll have to wait for sure. Handle Bar is another. We got some take out from them. Kinda sucked compared to their dine in experience but had to help out.

On topic: I think we're months away from stepping foot in our office here. It all sounded like they were aiming for about now in the US, but they just opened one of the European ones, and our numbers are nowhere near that. I'd have never put money that Illinois would be in a better spot than California. Probably all those Lori Lightfoot memes.

I'm pretty worried too. Mostly I'm worried about when the subsidies run out and they don't have crutch anymore. I'd like to know what percentage of them are actually reliant on
something like that.

Right now, the distance between us is roughly 2.600km and around 60.000 deaths.

Stay safe man.

Crappy. What's the vibe like there? According to Reuter's data, things started off fairly slow in Argentina and then picked up a lot over the past month. https://graphics.reuters.com/CHINA-HEAL ... index.html

The number of victims has been almost the same for the last couple of month (they only look bigger cause they weren't testing shit back then), but the thing is the economy here is going straight to hell. Governmet financial support is slow as fuck, prices are rising, our currency is plummeting, and me and my brother work on fields that apparently wont be back to normal until next year (education and tourism).

To be honest, this fucking virus is the least of my worries right now.

Gotcha. Yeah, It's not great. Sounds like the next year or so is going to be a tough one for you. I hope things pan out ok.

Not sure that anything is going to be normal anymore. There's a lot of tension all around the world, and things are going to get worse before they get better, if they get better.
