My first day in LA was very uneventful. It was a day of relaxation and doing nothing. I’ve started watching an old sitcom I’ve heard a lot about but never seen – Arrested Development. I also ate a lot of junk food.
Maybe today I’ll at least go for a walk or something.
My flight to LA was mostly uneventful. My wait at the Kahului airport was interesting. I washed my hands a lot. Only a few people were wearing masks. LOTS of people were touching heir face. There were a lot of hand sanitizer stations out
The airplane was really crowded. I had an aisle seat as usual. I wiped everything down. I brought junk food with me to eat, but there was a fruit and cheese box offered, and I couldn’t resist.
I did sanitize my hands. I think I was safe.
I’ll be in LA for ten days. Denis will be at work during the day. I have books and watercolor painting materials. And of course there’s always the tv and my phone. I’m in for some serious relaxation.
Yesterday was another work day at school. This time, I got all of my paperwork done! (almost) Yay! (almost)
I was just about to leave for the day, and decided to do a water change in my classroom aquarium. I haven’t been as attentive to it since it got a leak and I got tilapia in it. The amount of work was just so intimidating!
Anyway, I did the water change, then noticed that the leak was faster than usual. On closer inspection, I saw that it was leaking super fast. There was no way that the little bucket I had under the leak would last more than a few hours before it over flowed. Dang it. I would have to drain the tank.
An hour and forty-five minutes later, I was done. Ugh. The tank is empty, but it’s still dirty. I’ll have to clean everything, then patch the leak. Then I can refill and restock it. Dang it.
I fly to LA today. I had planned to spend some time there during my spring break. I was going to explore the city. I don’t think that’s going to happen now. But I decided to still go, because if this corona situation gets weirder, I’d rather be staying with someone than being by myself.

We did have church yesterday, even though the corona virus is happening. I was extra careful and washed my hands a lot and didn’t touch anyone. I played the piano for the service, so I was isolated in the back.
One of the visitors was a girl who recently moved here. She said she works at a restaurant in Maalaea. She said business has been pretty bad lately. I felt sorry for her. My salary keeps going if we suspend school. Her pay doesn’t.
When I went to Safeway to do my regular shopping, I decided I’d stop to eat first. I went to Outback. It wasn’t empty-empty, but it looked pretty sparse for a Sunday. When I paid, I left a big tip. I hope the servers of the world are going to be ok.
