Now the rooms are all empty down at Frankie's joint

 Hardware stores were declared essential services but our family-of-choice family hardware store has opted to close. So no, I don't get to replace my air purifier filters. Not that it cleans the air all that much: I still have dust elephants in the bedroom whenever I look. I keep it for the white noise it provides.

Equally, while the LCBO is an essential service, the store front wine stores evidently are not, so that was closed as well. My outing to Bloor St was thus a bust, but at least I stopped at the conveni that had my tonic water of choice and bread and frozen veg. And was emptier than the supers are these days, and are run by masked and gauntleted Koreans.

The dollar store was open but I resisted temptation.

Also, wearing a mask interferes badly with periphrral vision downwards, and also isn't closed at the sides. No matter. I wear it to prevent my viruses-if-any from spreading, not to avoid other prople's,.

Did get to shout-chat with the local playwright on my way back, some welcome social interaction.
