Mocking the rating system is mad cool.  There's a scene in either 'Be Cool' or 'Get Shorty' in which Travolta is told by another character, 'If we want to keep the PG-13 rating, we can only drop one f-bomb' and Travolta replies, 'That's fucking stupid.'

When Mark Watney had to extract a foreign object from his own stomach he was allowed to say "FUCK!" just once. Having helped people in similar situations more than once I can confirm that once is a very low number in reality. Not that movies ever deal with reality.

Not sure how it works in the US, but here the ratings people are more forgiving of the word if it isn't used to describe the act.  You can say 'Fuck you' and get a PG, but 'I'd like to fuck you' gets an M.

Being bored and hoping my new professional-level microphone arrives like it's supposed to today. My album was supposed to be delivered yesterday but it was delayed. For obvious reasons.

I'm glad that the food I order is prioritized, though.

RE: What's everyone up to right now?
I'm working mostly from home these days as a phone contact support person.
I hate it, I hate phones.
And because most of the people in my company have been stood down I'm supposed to feel grateful.
But they're now getting more than me on unemployment benefits and I'm waiting for the government to give me some money in a months time.
Anymore than that and I'll have to halt my mortgage payments.
I still have 5 weeks holidays up my sleeve and I can cut into my super if I have to.
On the upside I get to spend everyday with my daughter.
We have been painting a lot lately and I think I'm getting much better at it.
It's actually getting exciting just thinking about what I might paint next.
And to think, six months ago I threw a tantrum and poked a hole through my canvas with my brush and threw it in the garden.
It just looked so much easier than it actually is and I assumed I would be instantly good at it. :-)

I've put out an order for a facemask on Etsy. Well, two, actually. One is delayed because they're out of materials (and have promised to send two additional medical-quality masks for free). The other has apparently not been delayed, since the maker sent me a message congratulating me on receiving it, but I think something's wrong with the local post office because I have received ZERO mail in the past two days.
