Hello Jim and confined poets. Of course I can't get the remote access to work, so I won't be confined for long
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am
Jim the Poet:

Hey Fred! I can't get remote access to work either! Hard to work at a bookstore from home!
Avatar 4:20am

Hey Jim – VERY nice song selection, thanks for the show! Not sure if I understand it correctly that you are not very often on the air, but if yes: You should do this more often!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am

@Jim: I guess you'll have to make your home a bookstore then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am
Jim the Poet:

Hey Zivilars! With everything that's going on maybe I squeeze in a couple of shifts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22am
Jim the Poet:

I would love to sleep at the bookstore!

Hey Annette and Blaze!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am

Hey Jim the Poet, nice surprise tuning in this morning to hear YOU. It was good meeting you Friday . Too bad JC's curfew shut down Stashu's Polka a Go-Go earlier than expected. I stopped at the City Diner after the show to sober up a little and I had to put my name and contact info on a sign in sheet before they would serve me. Weird times right now.

Jim the Poet:

Whoa that's crazy! Good meeting you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59am

Went to the Shop Rite last night at about 10PM, no crowds, but also no chicken at all but plenty of chop meat, the pasta aisle had only thin spaghetti , no other form of pasta. Plenty of jarred cocktail mini onions but limited dog food choices. It was an interesting marketing snapshop of the tastes and wants of today's consumers. Oh, and needless to say, no paper products as well as no bread . Maybe bread slices are now substituting for toilet tissue.
Tennessee Jeb:

Keep dishin em out Jim
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am
Jim the Poet:

what's up Jeb
Tennessee Jeb:

Off to work. Until the union says otherwise. But I appreciate the soundtrack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am
Jim the Poet:

Oh man I got so much toilet paper but that's because I drunk-bought Charmin's Forever Rolls a while ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am

Charmin is my main squeeze !
Tennessee Jeb:

When I think of my arsenal of toilet paper I can at least say to myself, “everything’s gonna be alright”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16am
Jim the Poet:

Why is everyone hoarding TP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20am

@Tennessee: Sounds like you have everything " covered" in the T P area . Something about the arsenal word cracks me up, arse ( in Irish brogue) + anal = arsenal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am

TP = Total Panic
Tennessee Jeb:

Doesn’t Australian comments have something to do with the hoarding? I missed the reasoning but love how the internet ran with it
Tennessee Jeb:

The internet did teach me the native corn cob alternative...if need be...
