Automatic TRANSCRIPT

It Sally t tweet at me at. Sbk Heller. Yeah every social media account that I have access to is now just miles feed. That's all it is. Which is Great? I I admit it just defer to you so Catherine yes? We're we don't really know we're just gonNA kind of We're going to Improv. We're GonNa yes and each other. Okay give us a profession. So we're just gonNA like I mean. Do you WanNa talk about some of the stuff that we've been doing to. Kinda GET THROUGH. I because I'm interested in like how you've been spending your days for sure and like how you're holding up and everything well without getting into great detail because you don't want to get into it. I'm in New York and a lot of people I know have been directly hit and have been tested and it's really hard to get one and I had a really. I had basically a bunch of the symptoms a few weeks ago and I'm still fighting off a fever but I feel so much better so who knows but It's pretty serious out here like we're just all taking it very seriously and it's I haven't left the house in a while. I Miss Everything but Sally. I am the proud new foster drum roll of two cats. My upstairs neighbor before before you say another word I just WanNa say when you say. You're the foster of two cats. I would like everyone to imagine that two cats are fostering. You and they are adoptive parents. That's so sweet. Well here's the situation my Several of my neighbors skipped town. Because everyone's really scared right now and understandably so because you know we don't really know what's going on yet and it's hard to grasp your head around things logically. We always talk about catastrophic thinking in trying to keep yourself grounded but for right now it's totally. Okay it'd be anxious about stuff so a bunch of my neighbors left. I am now the proud Part Time Foster of these two cats which has been an experience and also the proud new part time owner of a my downstairs neighbors apartment which is gorgeous. And 'cause I can't leave the house I go there for a change of space to hang out and watch movies. Suzanne Phan is amazing. Yeah so that's really helpful. What about you they hold on? We're not done with these cats. Yeah Okay what are their names? Okay what are they like? Are they in your apartment or are you taking care of them in there are no? I'm very allergic to them. And I didn't realize they're very new to my building. My neighbor just adopted them a few weeks ago months ago and I only met one of them once because the other one was really shy. I use the word was because it's about to get real so I actually don't know their names. 'cause it's too late for me to ask. Do you know when you're at a party. And you've met that person once before in your friend just leaves you alone kitchen with them and then you're like I can't ask you. I can't ask their name right. Yeah I've called them The one in charge and the other one. Those are the news so you're feeling too embarrassed to ask them their names because you've been spending so much time with them. Yeah so I walk in the apartment of the first time and the one insurance the one in charge comes out looking at me like and I was like am I. Is this high die like is this. Is this going to happen? And she comes up their sisters she comes up to me and she's like She sniffs my arm you know. She walks over to other sisters swear to God. They had a conversation. The other one came over finally and was like by the end of the day. We were just playing together all day and every day I go in. They run up to me. Now they're like doorbell. I'd play with them. And today I gave them catnip for the first time just for my own entertainment and they like it. Oh how one of them just passed out after work and then the other one kept getting into playing and then ran into the other room looking for more cat if and I was like. Wow it's real stuff so they're okay. It's tough because I am very allergic and I want to pet them and have them in my face but you know. I really can't knife just shower after I see them. And Oh man little hives here and there which I don't think is a good thing to have but that's normal. I've always been allergic to cats more allergic to some than others but I love animals so much. So that's that's where I'm at and these cats the one in charge and the other one. I love you kids read. There's some videos online in the struggle buddies group. Sally yes there are cameras. Yeah Well I'm glad that you have some some company even though they're making you allergic and you can't spend too much time with them just 'cause like having a little bit of animal. Interaction is Kinda delightful. I'm really enjoying miles right now. I'm like more grateful for him than usual. Just because it's nice to see like another little living being doing his thing And he's just like the cutest so it's just nice to have a nice to have a little cute friends so. I'm glad that you have that. We'll try to foster a dog but the good news is. There's too many people who tried so the list. I'm on a list. I'm on a wait list. They ran out of dogs which is good news. It has good. But it's a it's a bummer. For you I really want you to have a dog. I know I am more of a dog person. No offense to cats But yeah it's been good having animals to sort of distract me and there's a story that drives them bananas and it's so much fun it's on this like fishing hook And they they. They're just so into it like. I'm sure they know that it's all just a game that I'm in charge of it but they still love it our cats. I'm Kinda smart. Yeah Yeah yes. Cats are smart. I don't know they're smart and also at the same time there are times when like miles does something and I'm like who's my little genius and other times I'm like. Are you a Ding Dong? Or what like they just contain a lot of different modes? The cats also destroyed the apartment today when I came in His little come a tent over their beds just knocked down paper towels everywhere out Dan. They're acting out. Are One of them. Pooped outside of the litterbox. Even though I've been changing it so it's like. Oh Gosh Oh yeah. That's definitely a like a Retaliation of some kind and you know rightfully so. I don't blame them to be honest but my neighbor she might be at uptown longer than expected. And I was like Really Miss You. And she's like yeah but like they always act out and I'm like yeah I think that maybe after a certain period of time you just should get like renaming rights like if you end up watching the cats for like eight weeks. Let's say you just get to name them. I already came up with the name Brady Sallee and to Markin. I love that I love that. At least one charge to Americans. The other one is the other one. That's perfect great well. I think I think we're done here. We've done some really good work. Yeah Well that's good so that's something that you're doing. I mean you're also working right now. Right I M working at one of my jobs but I took time off the podcast company. Because that's a lot of creative work in my mind was not in the right head. Space the other languages logic and stuff so I've been doing that to keep busy but I've been sleeping like that fatigue and the exhaustion was so intense when I was going through. Whatever it is that I had and I'm feeling much better now but it was hard to like. Get out of bed in the morning. Just work and yes partially. It's could depression. You know because of all this happening. And I haven't feeling very anxious but legitimately for the last few weeks even before this was quote unquote taken seriously. Because it wasn't I was still feeling so exhausted like beheld auditions from theater company. Which by the way we did include we did close But even at Auditions. I was falling asleep in between when we had breaks like for five. Minute breaks my head on the desk but I really do. I want people to know I feel a lot better now. Which is why we're doing this. But I did take time off the podcast stuff and I'm working a few hours a day at the other job from home. Okay cool. So that's that's something Yeah I it's nice to keep busy. It's it's weird. It's both nice to keep busy and like have something to do and also I'm finding it really really hard to like focused and to concentrate. You're still working at the same. Yeah I'm still working and like we're doing a lot of coverage right now. Almost exclusively current virus coverage and on the one hand. It's like a lot but on the other hand. I think if I wasn't doing this and I was like editing other stuff I would just be thinking about it all the time it you know. It's it's this is at least allowing me to engage with it in ways that feels like productive and helpful So that's good And it's nice to be able to like provide useful pieces of content for people like I think people are just like looking for information and also for Just like experiences they can relate to So I feel really good about being able to to like work on those stories You've been writing. Animals easing stuff by the way. If you WANNA check it out go on to self dot com just right. Yeah I actually I. I'm mostly at et. I wrote one piece about social distancing about how to I basically just like compiled all of the things that I've been saying to people in my life to try to convince them to take social distancing seriously so I wrote that but everything else that I posted stuff that Either edit or that someone I work with here at self has written or edited and you can see all that at self dot com you can search site for Corona virus and that'll like pull up crevice content but you know it's like also like very fortunate to have a job right now Which is like definitely not guarantee and in fact actually I just published something by a really cool writer named Lindsay King Miller who is on twitter at ask queer check and she wrote a list of different ways to help people everyone from like Performers and artists musicians Sex workers domestic workers trainers basically anyone who is like in the GIG economy or in the service industry Ways that we can support them financially right now as so many people are either out of work or have like very very very little work and maybe are transitioning to like offering their services virtually and stuff like that Yeah if you're in shares unity or the arts community. The Actors Fund is offering money so do apply immediately. I did this because a lot of my income. Just got cut by a lot. Yeah Yeah it's it's pretty intense. I mean you know. Following the medical and health news is one source of complete terror but then also following like what's happening politically also really scary..
