I've really got to learn to just do the damage and get out of town. It's the 'stay and gloat' that gets me every time.

Thursdays. Oy.

Though today is fully vaccinated day for me and the husband!

gallows humor has passed from an occasional indulgence to a full-time necessity in this, the stupidest and meanest timeline

I've heard/seen things that imply we'd need booster vaccines after six months. That seems to be less than accurate - seemingly, the Pfizer vaccine maintains 90+ percent active after six months ... it may be that it's too early to tell if it'll remain so longer.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Yeah, what we know is that we don't need boosters yet, six months out. We don't know about longer, because it hasn't been longer!

I just watched this person's Instagram story that talked about that, and a bunch of other covid stuff in a fun and useful way: [link]

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.

The science nerd in me is all "So fucking cool that we're all learning about this together, in real time!" and the rest of me is all "Jesus H. Christ, we're all learning about this together, in real time!"

Woo, Dana!

I wonder how long I will keep randomly checking where the Ever Given is when I am looking for the vessels I'm waiting on.

There ought to be a word for having those feelings together, Tep
