Natter 77: I miss my friends. I miss my enemies. I miss the people I talked to every day.
Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, butt kicking, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.
My first chuckle of the day, Rick Scott has Covid. Well deserved. I can't believe my fellow citizens ever voted for this crook.
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.
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.
eta: Oh! Doing the dance of getting my Buffista number for a post number.
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.
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.
Ahhh, new thread smell. I dig it.
