A General Statement

Post by temerityb » Tue Mar 16, 2021 7:49 pm

Hey guys - just saying hello! Been a strange couple of weeks - had a COVID near-miss. I don't have it, but I was exposed to at least two people that did. Quarantined, double-tested, all seems well and I feel fine - other than having a friend who just got hospitalized. Worried about her. We seems to be having a third wave here in my area.

Be safe, please, all of ya.

Goddamn it, T, stay safe.

I'm frankly petrified that I'll be the last sumbitch to die of this shit. Or, worse still, that Mrs. C, who is a little older than I and a couple extra underlying issues, might catch it.

Really, the last year has played out like a pitch for a bad Michael Bay movie... "OK, so a virus comes out of the Orient, and we're all like, fuck that shit, man, this is 'Merica, we eat shit like this for breakfast. Then, it fucking surges, right? Like, all these people die, because we didn't take it seriously. Then, like, Big Pharma rides in like the Seventh Cavalry, and we get shit like Moderna, which comes up with the plan for a vaccine in 48 hours, or theraputics like Regeneron, which sounds like a Bond villain company. Then, everybody's dying, mainly in NYC, because, well, it's fucking New York City, right? Then, the fucking vaccine works, and if you get it, you're, like, gonna survive. But then, fuck! Here comes the fucking variants! And we call 'em the UK or the South African, because, you know, that's where the best bad guys come from, speaking the Queen's English and shit. So now, it's a fucking race. right? There's Fauci, who knows everything, like he's fucking Yoda and shit, but nobody fucking listens to him, because it's Spring Break, and all the young kids want to get fucking laid, and who can blame them, what with having to quarantine with Aunt Edith and shit. So, if we can get some Israeli funding, and get Liam Neeson to play Fauci, well, fuck, I can smell Oscars over fucking here!"

And then the Paramount execs throw the assholes out of the office, because this is just too much.

So, BDWFers, Lords, and various WISs: wear a mask, stay out of crowds, wash your hands, and take fucking care. I want to come out of this alive, and all of you as well.

Fuck COVID.

Glad you are ok, T-B. Stay safe.

Yeah, Conj, this has played out like a truly depressing apocalyptic movie. Hell, we are only 50 minutes into a 90 minute show, I fear.

^^^^ Okay, I laughed.

Just set up vaccination #1 for Friday. More sites meant a quicker appointment - my first attempt at a scheduled a shot was for May 10.

Way better.

Keep pursuing those vaccines. COVID is still out there and may surge again due to Spring Break.

Want all of you alive and well.

Had the first shot the beginning of the month. My second is next Friday the 26th. Hopefully my shoulder won't hurt as much. Stay safe and healthy all!

Good for you, ant.

Had my shot this morning - I'm fine, but the usual - a little lethargic, didn't do much afterwards. That tight "I got a shot" feeling in my right biceps.

Here's wishing everyone a jab or two.

I got notice that that pic got removed from imgur due to gore. Heh. I'm glad you all know damned well that isn't real...
Hey removed that obviously goofy pic due to "gore"? That's like TikTok banning bikini dancing.
