I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

I would certainly be suspicious about that at my job, but I had the impression Calli's employers had more in the way of goodwill

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

I got my review back from my boss, very good and looks like I'll be put in for a 4% raise on top of the 2% cola we got in July and again in Jan. So that is good. I am going in asking for 5.

I am still not getting through all my work in a day, like not even close.

Not sure how to address that without additional people coming on and then there will be training time. The current person they have to "help" I have been massively underwhelmed by.

ION - I'm super happy with my knitting and progress I am making on everything.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

At least they recognize your worth, msbelle.

I hope Tim's bout with covid is mild, Steph.

Also, if you sic the goat on the poison ivy or oak, you'll have to wash the goat after. Happens with dogs and cats (not as much) all the time, bringing the damn stuff home and getting it on their people.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Bleah. It's Monday.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Y'all, Tim has Covid again (Electric Boogaloo).

Oh no! I hope it remains not a big deal.

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.

Oh no! I hope it remains not a big deal.

So far it just seems like a cold/sinus infection, so hopefully it'll stay at that level.

It looks like people are most contagious from 1-2 days before showing symptoms (which is, of course, not fair), through 2-3 days after the start of symptoms. Since Tim's symptoms started around Friday, we're already past that "2-3 days after" timeframe, so I'm not super worried about getting it at this point. But I will re-test in a couple of days, even if I don't have any symptoms.

Sad shadows of our formerly vibrant and observant selves?

Or that might just be me

Cats to become a rabbit should gather immediately now here

Y'all, Tim has Covid again (Electric Boogaloo).

This is frustrating seeming. My boss has RA and is in immunosuppressants as well, but she only got it once. Her family did not.

I got free covid tests from the state today! They started it when the US did too? So that’s awesome.

I’m watching Encanto en español and it’s very annoying because I like to have captions on—I catch more of what they’re saying then—but they don’t match the audio! It’s like two different people translated from the English—they’re both the same idea but different words and phrases (the captions in the song say “no hablamos de Bruno” whereas the audio says “no se habla de Bruno”)
