We got a trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage! I’m looking forward to this. The first one was A) Way better than I thought it was going to be, while also being kinda terrible, and B) Way better than it had any business being in the first place, considering how bad it was.
I got my second dose of the Moderna vaccine on Wednesday, so here’s looking forward to May 19, my Immunity Day. W00t!
I do advise trying to take the day after off, though. I thought I was cool yesterday, but the side effects hit me like a freight train yesterday afternoon and I was out of commission for the rest of the day. Feeling all right this morning, though.
At any rate, I will happily deal with feeling like garbage for a day if it means I don’t die of COVID, so get your shots, people.Continue reading Reading List (5/7/21)
The Atlantic has this dumb fucking article this morning:
Progressive communities have been home to some of the fiercest battles over COVID-19 policies, and some liberal policy makers have left scientific evidence behind.
And just, jesus, this shit is exhausting. The pandemic is still surging. Variants are rampant. People won’t vaccinate and are still bitching about masks. And here’s these asshole journalists all like “But the liberals are still being cautious, why?”Continue reading On Not ‘Quitting Lockdown’
I’m extremely jealous of how good this dude looks in heels and a mini skirt.
Recently one of our kitties escaped. Our cats are strictly indoors, and one is fine with that, and the other considers it a terrible injustice. Injustice Kitty slipped outdoors last weekend at some point, promptly got lost because he’s just very very dumb (super sweet, but so dumb), and was taken to the local humane society by some kindly soul.
We left a message there as soon as we realized he was missing, and they called us back, so we retrieved our cat fairly quickly. He was extremely upset about the whole thing, for about a day, and then he promptly forgot all about it. Because, as I said, so dumb. Now he has no idea it ever even happened and he’s back to trying to slip out the door whenever we open it.
So, of course, this means he has to have a collar from now on. We got him one, and it came with a teeny little bell on it, which completely baffles him. There is a jingle toy, and it’s following him around constantly, and he thinks it may be invisible. The other day I watched him go to scratch his neck, and he kicked the bell then did a startled double-take because his foot was jingling.
At any rate, some good reading for the weekend:Continue reading Reading List (4/30/21)
