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

Fistbump of solidarity in the face of blergh, Tep. I realized after I posted that probably I used up all my Behave Like a Human energy yesterday at the in person Sales Meeting with waaaaaay more people than I am used to seeing at one time yesterday. I even said to a co-worker that I'd need to come home and hide under the bed afterwards, which I pretty much did, but I need more recovery time, apparently. All masked and socially distanced and everyone was required to be vaccinated to attend, I do not feel worried about contagion, just that was a lot of people

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

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

Hit me too ... I was trying to write up notes from a Zoom call yesterday - 95 minutes! - and COULD NOT concentrate. It's one of those tasks I hate and am bad at (not sure which is the cause and which the effect), so I kept getting distracted, taking breaks, etc. There wasn't enough caffeine in the world to keep me focused.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Back to fandom, I just tried to explain to my mother why the word portmanteau came to mind so easily for me.

Looks like I'm going back to Puerto Rico at the end of October. I'm just doing the Covid hot spot tango. Northern Ireland at the beginning of October and then Puerto Rico at the end. All of those are Level 4 locations according to the CDC.

Nothing since 645 last night? Where is everyone? Was the east coast raptured?

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

Where is everyone?

I've only had one coffee! I can't be expected to type.

But Second Coffee comes after I run, and...that requires a fair amount of effort. Yet I will do it because....coffee.

I am just thankful that so far today I am not dealing with any new identity theft (….so far) and that I don’t have a headache. I got no work done Tuesday because of the identity theft stuff (being on the phone, going in to the bank) and other appointments, and then I had a headache pretty much from Tuesday night until now, and spent most of yesterday sleeping. So I’m hoping to get work done but also like, dishes and laundry.

See this is why you need a secret identity. And a sock puppet account. And a stage name.
