My first chuckle of the day, Rick Scott has Covid. Well deserved. I can't believe my fellow citizens ever voted for this crook.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Tim's Covid test update: because Ohio's curve is basically a vertical line, all the CVSs and Walgreens that are doing Covid test appointments are fully booked. I suggested he call his PCP, because if they're doing Covid tests, he probably wouldn't need an appointment per se -- they could probably fit him in to have a nurse do the test.

Tim talked to PCP in person, told him the circumstances around his co-worker testing positive (ie, their work shifts only overlap for 2 hours, Tim's interaction with co-worker was minimal, Tim always wears a mask, co-worker did not wear a mask). PCP said that he doesn't think Tim needs to get tested.

I generally trust Tim's PCP, especially after he caught Tim's busted mitral valve so early. But I'm iffy about this. I agree that Tim's exposure was minimal, but I just feel like the inconvenience of a Covid test is worth it.

Ugh, I'm sorry the PCP shot it down.

WTF? Why not get tested? Hmph.

And I expect I'm going to be progressively angrier as it gets closer to Thanksgiving and people are just fucking jetting off to have 20-person dinners with their families while I sit at home because driving to see my family seemed too risky.

Ann, that's a ferret.

Dana, on the other hand, you won't be in the hospital with COVID for Christmas. It's a trade-off.

Yes, it will be Thanksgiving for 2 this year and I am fine with that.

I don't regret my decision. It's just not fair. I have to behave because other people can't be bothered. People who literally have no choice are getting sick and dying because other people make the selfish, self-serving choice.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

Not cool Tim’s doctor.

And I just feel like I want to drag everyone who is having trouble getting tested to MA because we haven’t had any trouble with that yet.
