Day 81: how many plagues were there supposed to be?

The president is calling out the army on the citizens who are protesting an endless history of police brutality during a pandemic that IS NOT OVER and then TREES STARTED BLOWING OVER. And murder hornets. And one extraordinarily nervous dog. Is that all? Or is there more?

Day 79: it’s not over…still…

It’s been a long few days, but besides keeping tabs on the news and all of the protests and the self-assessment and uneducation/re-education going on over here, not a lot to report. It’s hard to tell looking at the news, but the whole pandemic thing did not go away. I’m sure the people mismanaging the […]

Day 76(ish) – we are in the rounding phase

Day 71? Maybe?

Day 69: not ready to leave the red

Pennsylvania has a 3 tiered pandemic response system. Red is stay at home. Yellow is some more stuff open but with lots of precautions. And I guess green is “pretend this never happened.” We are down in that red area, which I am completely cool with. I know that there are lots of folks who […]

Day 68: whatever

Work. Read enraging shit about how the US topping the # of Covid cases is an “honor” [areyoufuckingkiddingme] Patio wine 🍷. Dinner. Ice cream. (I think I have solved the mystery of why I’m not an athlete yet 🤔) Hanging in here…
