Out of the Blue

Happy Black Friday, an "occasion" that's taken on less significance in the era of online shopping. But it's certainly still a thing. So if you are reading this from the middle of a mob fighting over the last sale TV in the store—well, enjoy! For those shopping at the widespread online sales today, here's hoping you can avoid a virtual trampling.

Guten abend mein herrs! This missive comes to you from the land of chocolate!

It's funny, went into 2 stores and both told me I need an FFP2 or better mask for service. They were nice about it and served me anyway yet, oddly, the staff weren't wearing them - just regular disposables or cloth masks.

Beyond that, just like Italy 99% of everyone on the streets isn't wearing at all or half-assing it at best. So what's the fucking point?

I've pretty much been masked up the whole time because I don't want my trip derailed by COVID and I still caught a cold from one of these arscholes. And they wonder why COVID is rising again.

Not quite the same, but consistently delicious everywhere I've had it: Thai Tom Kha soup. It's also a sour and spicy soup.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.

Yeah, the moment I saw it was in Belgium (ie.. Europe) I was like, "Yelp, that's effectively world-wide." I give the over/under of it being seen the USA at one week (take the under).

Whatcha wanna bet it's already here.

It was already in Belgium, Egypt and Hong Kong I think.

So that South African travel ban maybe will only slightly delay/mitigate the initial spread, but it's already out of SA so... *shrugs*

You're probably right and since you guys down south are going "bare skin" already for the most part and the Canadian border with the US is open with testing restrictions partly lifted ( don't have to if you only spend less than 72 hours in the US before coming back, plenty enough time to catch it ), let's brace for CovidCalypse 2 I guess?

Damn I hope I'm wrong here and the vax is still efficient enough for it.

Be glad it's not the Ed Rooney variant. "Nine times?" "Nine times."

What I learned eating at 8,000 Chinese restaurants.
A friend has a deep abiding love with Hot and Sour soup and orders it everywhere he goes.
He ordered it at at an Indonesian eatery and the waitress said “You won’t like it”, but he persisted. It was brought to the table in a covered bowl and when he lifted the lid he said the aroma reminded him of the pigs slop bucket that hung outside the kitchen door when he was a farm boy.
So to prove the waitress wrong he grabbed a spoon and imbibed. With a smile he exclaimed “Mmm, it’s good.”
Needless to say he won’t be ordering it again. 😵
