TMI Tuesday – Socially Distant Edition #2

I want to open this post by saying every day I am grateful. I am grateful that I live in a country that is not as affected by Covid -19 as many countries in Europe and of course the United States. Our “Lockdown” is the lockdown you have when you aren’t having a lockdown. I still get to go to work every day and I can leave the house to exercise. Consequently my answers to the questions may not be what some people expect.

Before you go any further this post comes with an official rant warning,

1. As the world deals with covid-19, are you masturbating more?

The last two weeks for me have been Easter break. I have not been able to do any socialising other than on the internet and within the people who live in my house. But in all honesty it has been the perfect break for an introvert. I have pottered around my house, done sewing, cooked healthy delicious meals for my family and felt myself strengthen. I haven’t really masturbated more than I would normally as to me things don’t feel very different.

2. With stay-at-home orders and lock-downs, are you able to have more kinky fun at home?

I live with my husband, two grown up children and my parents in law. Kinky fun does not happen in our house. Sex yes but it is muted and restrained. We are fortunate that we have a commercial building that has a room we have fitted out for fun times. We have visited there a couple of times.

3. Do you think you are watching more porn since you are home more?

I am not s fan of porn. It seems fake and I would much rather watch real people have sex in real life. Or better still be part of a real life porn scene.

4. Fill in the blank. “I am so sick of _____ .”

About three weeks ago when case numbers were increasing here and school was in the second last week of term, talk amongst students and their parents was about “When is the government going to close schools?” Large numbers of students stopped coming to school for no really good reason and eventually the government caved and closed schools. Yesterday, despite the number of new cases declining significantly, it was announced that after the Easter break learning will be delivered remotely via the internet.

Parents, after dealing with their kids, who have not been able to go anywhere or do anything for three weeks are not happy. I am sick of hearing the news referring to the situation as “home schooling”. For the record home schooling is when the parent takes responsibility for deciding what and how their children learn. They come up with resources and activities. Downloading work and supervising and helping their children complete activities that another TEACHER prepared is NOT home schooling.

Also, while we are on the subject, what the actual F is it with letting your child skip school when it makes you look like the fun parent, and then complain that you can’t send them back when it suits you? I am an educator, not a freaking baby sitter.

5. If this is your first time having an outside job with which you are now working from home, do you think you are more productive now versus when you were at the office?

Despite my students not being at school I will still be at school on Monday after the break is finished along with most of our teachers. Of course like all teachers I am working at home during my holidays. I will say that I feel I get more done at school than at home. There are fewer distractions.

Bonus: Would you rather know when you are going to die or how you are going to die? (You can’t change the time or method of your death.)

I think when. I really like to have a schedule. It messes with my head when I don’t so knowing when I am going to die would be great!

Bonus bonus: There is just not enough sexy in the world right now so I feel you all need to see some boobs.

This post is for TMI Tuesday. To see who else is being wicked during the lockdown head on over and check it out.

  1. Yeah, I agree with your #4. Not that Im being careless, but based on what you’ve told me, your place ain’t affected as much as ours. I’m quite surprised that you got locked down. Maybe the government ain’t taking any chances. I mean don’t get me wrong, we have to stay vigilant with what is happening but panicking ain’t gonna help the situation.

    Anyways stay safe out there Gemmi, cheers! 🍸

  2. Gemmi, thanks for sharing what it is like where you live. I think you are in New Zealand?? or was it Australia?

    2. Oooh a getaway that is easy to get to. Perfect.

    4. Hmmm…I guess the government is concerned that case numbers will rise. Here, the home-schooling is not going well for all the people I know, not even for my relative that is a kindergarten teacher. Her six year old just cannot get in the learning groove in a home environment. So they are trying different things. It is hard for parents because not everyone is a good communicator or patient or smart enough to teach their child depending upon the learning material. But there is soooo much free info out their to help parents and students alike.

    I hear your rant. It is soooo justified. I also get the TRUE meaning of home-schooling. There are families in my neighborhood that have home schooled their children. What shall we call this coronavirus inflicted educate your children at home?

    Thanks for the beautiful boobs shot. 🙂

    Have a great week.

      Re the remote learning thing. When my own children were about eight and ten years old we took them out of school for s term to travel. During that time we did no formal schooling but we read a lot as we travelled, we did math relating to distances travelled, cost of fuel and accommodation etc, geography to do with where we were, and an amazing amount of science because we visited a lot of national parks. Did my children suffer? No. Will younger children suffer if they don’t do exactly what their teachers set for a couple of months? Probably not. But people haven’t worked that out yet.
