Out of the Blue

It seems like it was only a year ago that I had my last birthday, but I'll be damned if another on hasn't rolled around. The pandemic lockdown might make such an occasion weird for many people, but I tend to downplay my birthday, so I'm not really feeling deprived at not going out to dinner or anything like that. MrsBlue and I went shopping today for our little two-person Thanksgiving, so I picked up a steak to cook in Manstovia along the way. I'm always happy for an excuse to grill, eat steak, and laze around, so this should all work out pretty well for me.

Obituary: 'Wipeout' contestant dies after competing in obstacle course while filming reality competition show. Thanks Ant.

Good News
My friend who had Covid-19 at the end of October has been fever free for 6 days and just tested negative.
She had the full range of symptoms.
The exertion of getting tested left her tuckered out. She lives 5 blocks from the testing site at the University where she teaches. Keeping my fingers crossed that she doesn't have any of the myriad aftereffects.

To anyone who still thinks it's no worse than the flu, they need to “fact” more. https://www.yahoo.com/news/backstory-anthony-fauci-had-people-110256632.html

It's worse than that.

Jodi Doering, an emergency room nurse in South Dakota, was overwhelmed Saturday night. Her patients were dying of covid-19, yet were still in denial about the pandemic’s existence.
“Their last dying words are, ‘This can’t be happening. It’s not real,’” Doering said, adding that some patients prefer to believe that they have pneumonia or other diseases rather than covid-19, despite seeing their positive test results.

You can't vaccinate against covidiots sadly ;/

I could tell you far worse stories from a social support dude for youths from low income families who I regularly meat at my local bakery.... stuff like asocial kids coughing and spitting at anyone wearing masks to the point where the person in charge has OPENLY COMPLAINED to the city to give him some additional protection, the city REFUSED. He basically gave up even going to work after a kid showed up with a POSITIVE TEST in the family despite being in mandatory QUARANTINE and police refusing to come after he called them.

What would I do in cases like this I wonder

Sadly, you can not vaccinate against covidiots and most certainly not against just flat out idiots. And they make EVERYTHING worse in this pandemic.

Goddamn moose and their fetishes.

Is it moose, mooses, or moosi?

If I was Canadian I sure as fuck am not gonna tell the moose what they can or can't do. Those things are scary.

Watched about half an episode once and I am in no way surprised someone died on their obstacle course. Frankly, I figured it was only a matter of time until there was a "serious" injury -- although I probably would have predicted a "simple" paralyzation...

The Japanese ones on which these are based have even fewer safety protocols. I wonder if some of them have died, and we just didn't hear about it.

Congrats and happy to hear it! And she is in my thoughts and prayers as is anyone who is dealing with or lost someone to COVID.

My uncle just moved from California. He's a Vietnam Marine Vet who thanks to Vietnam and a Genetic Disorder that runs in my family was on a Liver and Lung Transplant for many years and was taken off earlier this year due to being considered non-viable to survive surgery. It's been 34+ years since I last had a holiday with him, so been on major lock down (and multiple tests) to make sure I'm negative to spend Thanksgiving with them. On one hand I want/need to spend time with family during this COVID crap, but at the same time I'm freaking out "hey what if your the fucker that shows up with COVID and kills him".
