Journal of a Vague Year #220

Day Two of being Pfizer'd - muscles feel like I've had a workout after a long break from the gym. Not pain, but mild discomfort, like they're rebuilding.

A headache & high temperature keep threatening to happen, but never quite do.

It might be best described as the mildest hangover ever, but that's a pretty loose analogy.

In a sense, it's like through and through. There is no certainty, but something unpleasant keeps threatening to strike.

Two points of order:

One, this is one of my local coffee shops, and it's rather nice.

Second, the slogan has been up for several months now - it's not exactly 'new'. Rather, the news media has taken this long to notice it.

Fun Fact: The February 1928 issue of Weird Tales, which published 'The Call of Cthulhu' came out on 01/01/1928. (According to the publisher.)

This makes Cthulhu a Capricorn, born in the Year of the Rabbit. He's a fucking bunny.

**The GOP proves Republicans never really cared about 'free speech'**

"Despite all the preening about "free speech" on the right, the truth is complaints about "cancel culture" have always been code for "conservatives can say whatever terrible things they want, and liberals can shut up about it." And while play-acting as the victims of censorship because liberals mock or criticize them, Republican…"

Checking out the screaming pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian mobs on the Bird Site, I can only say that the phrase, "a curse upon both your houses," has never been more appropriate than in this case.

Has anyone else noticed how so much of yesterday's Queen Speech seems designed to enable the far right, and disseminate their propaganda far and wide?
