Today in strange intersections, a case of mistaken identity with a cop claiming a black man is Reg Quintin to give him colour of righteousness in harassing a man existing on his own property.

So it's a pinched nerve with bonus edema
Meanwhile we're working on getting the plague (no, not the Hague) out of the domicile (1 resident out of the bunch, isolation, air flow, masking, some filter stuff).

Jesus died for my sin of my childhood in church and I had told him that he was going home with me so I was just in the bed with him and his dad.

I'd make some comment about the reading ability of people employed in some specialty, but to be fair it's a common human trait across most demographics to miss critical detail. How was your day not killing anyone noticeably?

A detective who relied on a combination of thinking, fighting, and technology who over time became the super-rich guy who uses his abundant resources to play vigilante? Seems like a big draw for a conference on technology.

I see signs the fash are gearing up for a Canada Day protest in Ottawa, which could easily translate to assholes at Pride, which locally peaks on the Saturday before. Hoping I'm overcautious.

As people took off their masks to speak more comfortably, yes I am okay with my choice to attend the meeting virtually instead of in person. Rain would likely have had the windows closed and i don't expect the venue air quality management has improved greatly in 2+ years.

Any recs on an instance? I suspect m.s will federate out to most of the folks who may be experiencing radio silence from rafting that @ceejbot runs. Not planning to live on the firehose.

“I tooted it today. After Ed Balls.”
“I don’t see it.”
...
“You haven’t tooted anything in three weeks.”
“I moved. I said something about it.”

Same handle. Rafting.io. Maybe I should mention it next month as well.

I am so privileged to have a secure job right now, and enough income for ongoing expenses. I am taking the coming week off work.

I had hoped, a month ago, next week would have long walks, beaches, woods, galleries, concerts, a resto and a cafe. It’s gonna have reading, meditation, quiet, as little time out of our eight hundred feet as we can be settled with.

I am still learning how to pandemic. It sucks. Here we are. Let’s survive, and live while we do that.

Take care.

I do not wish death, especially horrific death, on anyone. These fuckers who don’t understand the guidelines ought to be law, sometimes I think man if they could feel the consequences of their choices directly...

But I can’t know who is at the end of their ability to cope and who is fine with rules as long as they can break ´em with impunity. I just want as many people as possible to live through this, starting with the people who have special meaning to me, and their loves.

I could get snooty and say I isolate up for:
- my mum who is in lockdown in elder care, indefinitely
- my disabled close relatives
- my loved ones with poor and/or managed mental health
- my partner’s dodgy lungs
- the ER doc in my choir
- my nurse neighbour
- my retired ICU nurse sister
- and so on

It’s not that, not mainly.

I am doing my best to follow public health leaders because they know this shit and want to save our piteous lives. All of us, if they could.

I wear a mask and gloves when I go out, and I don’t go out every day though my body craves the activity.

Enough people come within contagion distance of me that I assume I may be a carrier. I live in a dense part of a big city and there are a few clueless and assholes. If I end up dead but not taking dozens with me, it’s a consolation.

Every danger vector I have met to date is white, adult, more male-presenting than not. Most are in consensus reality.

These one week old baby raccoons were found by a shed, out in the open, crying out for their mother. The finder waited all day to see if mom would return for them but she did not. Babies this young can not go very long without mom & can not maintain their body heat on their own..
