Out of the Blue

As you can see, we've decided to rebrand the site with a new name and a whole new look. It may take a while to replace all the blue with pink, but it will be a sight (site?) to behold when it's finished. For reals.

So yeah, the annual day of dread is here. As usual I'll try not to accidentally pass off any of the April Fool's Day hilarity as real news. If mistakes are made, I'll just break out the mop and clean up as best I can. As usual, actual news will probably be light as no one wants their news mistaken for tomfoolery.

Also, time begins on opening day! The Major League Baseball season begins today. The Mets finally have a new owner who has serious money to spend, so I head into the fray with newfound optimism.

Optimistic Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

Almost there - call it "Diverse News"! Just to anger Trumpers!

Welp, Canada is headed back into lockdown yet again - fucking shocker. Rolleyes And given the lack of vaccines - and continued lack going forward - I'm sure it won't be the last.

Emailed the PMO and told that sack of shit to lift travel restrictions on the country. That idiot should be encouraging people to go elsewhere and get vaccines if they can. Fuck, I hope Cuba is ready to start doing tourists come May.

Blue does April 1 properly. Thank you for the harmless gag and for keeping all the #teehee stories quarantined. I've got fake headlines showing up in my regular news feed and it's irritating as shit.

People in central NY have been heading down into the middle of PA and getting vaccinated - lots of appointments in central PA available. Something about people there not believing this is a big deal or some such is causing them to avoid getting vaccinated....

In honor of National Burrito Day, this mostly peaceful Burrito had a Freebird's burrito for brunch-ish.

Hey! Good to see you, Bronco.

Washington State has just moved up the date to 4/15 for having all adults over 16 eligible for the vaccine. I thought I'd check again and was accepted this time after I clicked on the "works in manufacturing" box. Turns out there's an open spot tomorrow at my grocery store so I'm getting stuck tomorrow.

It's a good thing too, as most of my co-workers are not very cautious (although only one, the owner of the company, has caught it). My 81 year old mom lives with my sister and is pretty much bed-ridden, and at this point we're not sure how we're going to get her vaccinated, so this will make me feel better about visiting and helping out over there.
