    wearing a mask in cold and flu seasons is something I would consider doing

    I've gone to the store a couple times since the mask mandate ended in California and have been surprised to see nearly everyone still wearing them.

    Slept like a rock last night. Finally stopped feeling crappy about 32 hours after my shot. Eating dinner helped.

    I really hope if we have to have annual boosters they aren't going to have that effect every time.

    I made a joke to my sister that --with all the mask mandates lifting-- the market had crashed on boardgames, and now was my time to swoop in muahaha

    But really it's just that I have ADHD, my interests go in cycles and I'm hot on tabletop again.

    Pleased with my first game of Patchwork!

    Dad got home today! Turns out it was a combo of gout and newly discovered AFib; the gout may have been caused by some meds which are changed now, as well

    He's honestly hobbling around at a much faster clip than I anticipated after how much pain he was in going in, and Ivy was very happy to see him home again

    British Columbia has just past 75% of folks over 12 with at least one dose. Now the 2nd dose schedule is gonna start speeding up.

    And as a result our case numbers and hos

    I'm glad I live in a place where most folks are excited to get it.

    I'm glad I live in a place where most folks are excited to get it.

    Ontario is also picking up with 76 and 29 percent as of today, so we're moving to Stage 2 early on June 30 (instead of July 2)

    I've been hesitant to post much about it because I know some folks are in spaces with less access to shots, but it is honestly wild how quickly things tipped from "still apocalyptic numbers and dire warnings about the health care system" to "I guess....my family can safely go buy non-necessities now??" (They all have 2 doses, I should be able to rebook mine Monday)

    Most folks here are still somewhat shell-shocked by the third wave and the anxiety of whether or not it's safe to leave the house but I think things'll flip pretty quickly into a wild bacchanal shortly

    I think you might be surprised by how much that doesn't happen. My state (MD) is doing very well and my county in that state (Montgomery) is doing extremely well and people are still overwhelmingly wearing masks and being careful here. I don't know what it'll take to flip that switch but it hasn't happened yet!
    Extremely well being .5 cases per 100k residents in the last 7 days, .4% 14 day average test positivity, 1.1% of hospital beds are being used by patients with COVID, 60% of residents fully vaccinated (not percentage eligible but everyone). Pretty good numbers, not good enough for people to be comfortable yet!

    People mostly wear masks indoors around here but damn near nobody wears masks outside anymore

    And of course we have bars and restaurants open to full capacity at this point, and nobody wears a mask once they're seated so when I say wear masks indoors I'm only talking about a limited subset of indoors

    I mean, adherence is pretty high here to public health measures and we're projected to get to upwards of 85-88 percent vaccination; so masks will likely be the last thing to go, but when they do I don't doubt the party energy is going to be pretty elevated

    There's a fever pitch in my conversations with folks about stuff as simple as booking hair and nail appointments so I'm pretty confident once the government says things are chill by August/September that shit is gonna be buck wild

    (For reference, patios only reopened a few weeks ago, hair salons and spas have been closed since March as have restaurant interiors, and you couldn't even buy non-essential goods in person until June)

    My gran has been in hospital for a few days for some unspecified reason. Unspecified because she has late stage cancer and it's not clear which precise terrible part of that is the reason she needs to be in for treatment right now.

    Anyway, someone stole her phone. My aunt used Find My Friends and found it in a different city.

    She's in a room on her own, and visitors are being greatly restricted because of covid. Which kind of suggests the person who stole it is an employee of the hospital.

    Humans are awful! No moral!

    Birds don't really pee like we do. I mean they kind of do, but they mix it with their feces to create a slurry and excrete that through their cloaca.

    So today the meadery friend and I went to pick up a keg from a local winery and while I was there I got a bunch of free wine samples and holy shit his white muscadine wine was incredible.

    It's all berry and fruit wines, locally grown fruits and honey etc etc. I'm gonna try and find some bottles next time I'm off.

    Also I got free wine.

    I think it is a Mexican red leg. Pet stores aren't the greatest with properly labeling anything that isn't fish. The legs just have the one stripe of red segment each. They're only about 1 1/4" in legspan right now. Lil butt is bald cause they kicked off their hairs at something (thankfully not me).

    Here's an article on boosters:

    Canada hasn't really used our allocation afaik since the ones we received were from the one plant that extremely fucked up their batches, but we are mixing AZ and mRNA vaccines to greater efficiency than AZ two dose regimes, so I won't be shocked if mixing J&J with mRNA also ends up being a thing

    Whelp. Was talking to my wife about wanting a deeper enclosure for the spoder. So she suggests we check out petsmart. Couldn't find one I liked.

    Did leave with a Costa Rican zebra tarantula though. I may have fallen back into the hobby.
