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

Timelies all!

Waiting for the e-mail from the appropriate people at work letting me know I can schedule the 1st COVID vaccine shot.

What is even happening?

Thanks, JZ. I was hoping people would share it to get an idea of how much this happened, but it didn't catch people's eye. It's a little gross that Disney-ABC, as a company, is bifurcating impeachment programming from its news division, based on location.

move out and draw fire

We've spent four years normalizing increasingly grotesque and extraordinary behavior... I think it's going to be like adjusting to being back on dry land after months at sea.

Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

Best case scenario now is a law to block him from ever running for office again.

McConnell may actually be on-board to do that. He wants his party back.

I didn't know how to respond to the bat-shit crazy. And then I realized I didn't have to. -Victor Infante

So today I noticed I had 2 new episodes of ZEP in my Hulu queue, and watched them. Also, I became a grandparent, and drove to NY and back, and the disgrace in the White House is Impeached, again. Then I went to see how far behind I was here so I could talk about stuff, and it was thousands of posts. So, Laura diet, I skipped massive numbers of posts and went to first post of the day. Life is overwhelming, but if I stick to the day forward maybe I can do this.

First post today was msbelle talking about Disney! My SILs, other friend, and their kids went there Monday. They said it was incredible. With the low occupancy rate there was zero waiting in lines for anything. They were delighted and didn't feel unsafe at all.

Still no vaccines here. My doctors said I should have gotten mine when I was in NY because FL is the worst. I know a lot of people already vaccinated up there. Boo, Florida!

And Impeachment! Yes, we still have to live through another week, but I feel more hopeful. I watched with a large buffer to enable skipping over the people I don't care to hear. I have no guilt about that.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

I have no guilt about that.

No guilt required!

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.

That's a good side to the pandemic that I hadn't considered!

ION, my left ankle is stupid and I hate it forever. If I didn't need it to keep myself ambulatory, I would launch it into space.

msbelle, please tell the Haunted Mansion that I miss it and want to come home.

Since last Thursday I have: stared unbelievingly at Slack, created a documentation planning process, had it reviewed by my boss, my feature release manager, and their boss, ran a meeting presenting and explaining it to my feature project managers, created a documentation request tracking spreadsheet for the same PMs, had a 1:1 with the junior writer I’m mentoring, and did not kill a project manager with my brain when they said “No, we don’t have any design docs about these workflows, they just evolved organically during the UX design meetings.”

I would like a large drink, a slice of cake the size of my head, and no meetings for the rest of the week.

Now tagless for your comfort.

Has any buffista or buffista-adjacent heard of Averna?

My kid is in love with it so I’m doing a deep dive. Seems like a super talented and creative media savvy group of young things.

Keanu's limited in range for an A-list movie star, but I've watched CW network shows, Sci-Fi Channel original series and movies, and multiple seasons of Teen Wolf, and I'm here to tell you he barely scratches the surface of Hollywood Bad Acting

I'm feeling very upbeat tonight. Possibly because I spent the last half hour listening to songs from Galavant.
