Hmm. It's sounds like the finest party I can imagine getting paid to go to.

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.

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.

Hello new thread! I shall still pursue the foamy goodness wherever I may find it.

This is a quote from my brother's email when I wrote him considering a visit since it has been so long.

.... we'll be here. Be forewarned though, we are not as passionate about masks, testing and sanitizers as you are.

Yeah, I love ya bro, but maybe next year. I feel bad because my sister depends on brother and his wife to take her to doctor's appointments, shopping, and so forth. She goes as little as possible but she still shares a vehicle with them at times.

I basically get myself tested every two weeks, and the appointments have all been booked here, too. So the last time I went, I went as a walk in. The appt line had people waiting, but I basically walked right in past those people. One one anecdote in favor of just showing up to a site that allows walk-ins.

My niece is an ER physician at a large University hospital in Ohio (not Teppy's city) and when I spoke with her last Sunday, she thought they would be out of beds next week. They were already refusing all transfers. She also said they have plenty of PPE, so that's not a worry, but what is a worry is that the doctors and nurses are getting sick, too, and they won't have enough staff to care for patients at this rate.
