You're nice, and you're funny and you don't smoke, and okay, werewolf, but that's not all the time. I mean, three days out of the month, I'm not much fun to be around, either.

We have very easy access to testing here in Los Angeles. So now there is a problem with younger folks getting tested on Thursday so they have their negative result on Friday so that they can then go out and attend large illegal parties on Saturday completely unmasked.

Yeah, that's not how that works. That's now how any of that works.

Volans I’m so sorry for your friend.

I’m at a doctor’s appointment at our hospital, and I do not like it one but. Too many people here.

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

The politicalization of basic health common sense continues to horrify me. DH had to go to one of our medical offices today to make changes on about 30 computers before staff arrived. The last thing he did before leaving the house was grab his box of gloves. He was not thrilled about touching all these people's keyboards even though we know they sanitize the offices at night. Ick! I appreciate that he has taken this so seriously since he does end up in medical offices several times a week. He's been tested 3 times. At this point he would only get tested if one of his contacts ended up positive as he has been so cautious.

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

In the end it's only ever been one step, and then the next.

Volans, I'm sorry, for both those things.

Jessica, I ask myself that at least a dozen times a day lately.

You know what I miss? Driving up to Kingston to a local brewery that has an open mic blues night; Jim getting me a beer and talking to a friend of his who's a regular player, while I walk a couple of blocks to the burger place to pick up supper. Spending a few hours listening to music (and heckling the players in a friendly way), petting dogs who want pets, helping kids get board games out of the stack. When it's over, we all walk down the road to a bar that's open later and hang out until they throw us out, then drive home down quiet roads under the stars.

God, I hope Downpour makes it. The couple who own it are great - I've watched their kids tear around during fish frys in the beer garden - they give so much to the community, and their beer is amazing.

Cats to become a rabbit should gather immediately now here

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.
Not only sick, but completely exhausted and weary. It is very worrying.

That is a problem here too. Also housekeeping, patient transport and nutrition services. It is getting to the point where we have been warned about getting called up.

Someone needs to tell interview candidates that "what qualities are you looking for in a person for this role" is not a useful question to ask. I've been asked that in three consecutive phone screens now and I really want to know what 10 Things To Ask During A Job Interview listicle these people have all read because dude that is a TERRIBLE question. I have no interest in telling you what I want to hear, that's not how this goes!
